haha oh yes. big progress this week (could and hopefully be done), and i think im going over tomarrow to sand and paint the frame as best i can. cause i just can't not do it, seeing the cab off like that and no motor. it will never happen again heh.


oh and we got nothn for fish.. we got 2 walleyes between 4 of us so it was ****y but our lake is a bit off since its been warm and dry for this time of year, so it was hard to find em. but we got about 50 northerns lol. pulled in a nice 25.5" but that was about it

haha its almost done. we had a problem with the parts shop being retards. so we get the expedition. t-case ordered up again and it comes over and its the same damn 99 auto one. so we send it back and say IT NEEDS TO BE A 98 (or under) SELECTABLE t-case. they sent the wrong damn thing 3 times in a row. and then the last thing they sent.... Was a ****ing front diff! we were like wtf..

but we have the right case now so the truck can all be wired up and d-shafts made to fit. this week i'll get over and take some pics of the progress. i want to drive my POS so bad...

I'll still be quicker loser. I think I need a comma in there.

I never understood why we never tried to see how fast the jeep goes. I think it was the fact that you prolly wanted to survive your drive w/ steering.
