    Got my driveshafts back and spent the afternoon working from one end to the other filling fluids and tightening everything. Pulled the parts car up beside it and went from one side of the engine compartment to the other returning mine back to 100 percent stock under the hood. With the stock air box/intake in place and all the correct emissions equipment in place I crossed my fingers and hit the key...and it runs great! What a freakin relief. Played around with it in the field and drove it up and down the road a few times. Rides very good in the field with some speed, and with the 4:88s has more power than I anticipated. Overall very happy. To take a non driving/running rig and build it and have everything work on the 1st try felt good. Suspension cycled well and everything that needs to clear, clears. Of course I had to harken back to my high school days and do the ditch test..

    Winch is completely finished, and waiting on a new rope to spool up.
    I made a nice long tow rope, and tree savers with my old rope. Much more compact, very light, repairable, but only about 2\3 of the strength as my 30'x2"strap.

    Set of VDP rear speaker pods.
    My intent was to install my 6.5 subs in them, but the subs are a bit to deep. Slapped in a set of cheap boss speakers, connected to the OE amp, and I was actually impressed.
