    Ok, just asking because long ago I was jumping my 91off the terraces in one of our fields, the battery smacked the underside of the hood, shorted all electronics. Then it started raining and all the windows were down and couldn't roll them back up. Had to call Burgundy to come pick me up.

    Worked on my crap box some tonight. Have the rear axle almost totally cleaned up so I can start mocking it under. Basically procrastinating my clutch job I don't feel like doing...


    35 spline 9" shafts are beef


    Also scored a running driving parts car with pretty much every part I need to finish out. All the body parts I need and a good grey interior. Lucked out and corbeau hadn't built my seats yet so Joe was able to get them switched to grey. Goodbye terrible blue interior I always hated. Couple pieces need some touching up but overall very good for a 27 year old interior.

    Well my seats, tires, wheels, and arb stuff is in at clemson 4 wheel. My fenders are on their way to Anderson and I'll pick everything up together once they come in. Found some funny throw back pics the other day including a pic of the cake my mom made to make fun of me rolling it to "miss a deer" I was doing doughnuts and lied... The method wheels and bfgs are a great modern version of what was on it. Also managed to get my garage straightened up so I can be productive. Got my radius arms mounted to the axle after I have finally gotten my housings cleaned up. Todd is getting my rear ring and pinion sorted out and then I'll be ready to mock up the rear.

    Finally sitting on all my big stuff but my fenders. Of course I had to snatch a seat out of the box and sit on it in the garage. It seems super comfortable. Also looks like it's going to match the interior pretty well.

    Does that hand pump on the seats hook to your "manhood" for the scary obstacles? Just squeeze on it a couple times to get your courage up and let them BFGs eat!!??

    Yeah picked up a set for my buddies Tacoma while I was there. I think the plan is right now dad is going to paint it. Definitely going factory color.
