get a new trans and balljoints and then drive it as little as I can so that I can save up for a boat motor and wood for my boat. Its going to be hard to get a couple sheets of plywood, a boat motor(25hp), a trans, and balljoints with the price gas will be at all on minimum wage....

Hrmmm,

Go camping/wheeling as much as possible...

Nothing major, Lift it w/shackles/tbar crank. Put on a few parts I got lying around, IRS Diff cover, James Duff Traction bars, etc. Maybe more if I got time and $$$.

as far as my plans go, the SAS is already done.

now i need to get all of the 4x4 components and then im fixing the body and painting it.
S'okay -- I already have one in pretty good shape. It's sitting outside under a tarp now. It's out of an early 90's F-150. The guy who had it just went really big lift wise and put a D60 in the rear and D44 up front on his F-150. He gave me the axle for free so anything I put into it will be what it will cost me. Probably just bearings and seals as the diff innards will come out of my current 31 spline axle.

Just keep it in running shape. No new mods for summer. Going to be taking a pay cut so I cant really afford mods. Oh well. Just keeping up on payments, maintenance and other minor things.

my plans are to throw on some trac bars, put roller rockers in the engine, get the pulley kit, get a programmer and finally drop the front down a lil more with djm arms.

ill probable also redo my interior and throw in some bucket seats since 3 people dont fit in a regular cab.
