HE'S BEEN HACKED!! TAKE HIM DOWN!!




On a side note, I think he is right. When I get engrossed in a project over my head I stop, take a step back. Go eat a sammich. Take a break. Then I go back and reevaluate where I'm at, what needs to be done, and how to do it.

Since it's a big project I would take a weekend off. Whether it be regearing another truck or just doing something else, or nothing.

You seem overwhelmed. Take a break.

If you need a break, drive down and make me some traction bars for the F150.

That dynamat would be miserable to remove!

I should have come up and helped with wiring this week, I enjoy that kind of stuff normally. I spent all weekend close to home, not doing anything productive. My boss is out of the country but I had to stick around just in case. Booo....

Why dont you get a few of the guys over for a weekend or something and just hammer away on the ranger. Y you might not get everything done but you will defiantly get a lot done.


Just a thought

I appreciate the help guys but Josh is right, its not that easy to have a bunch of guys come over and put it together. Anyone that comes over is usually lost just as much if not more than I am.

I see what your saying. But if you had one guy who was really good at wireing a engine he could do that while someone else plumed the engine and you worked on the interior.

I did not mean a whole slew of guys just like one or two.

But I also see what you mean. If they are not there right from the get go then it is hard for them to know what you want done or how you want it done.

The last thing I would want (especially in Zach's position) is to have a bunch of guys come over and randomly try to work on my rig. He would spend more time fixing things and tracking down mistakes, trying to make things work the way he wants, etc.

Even if my self or his cousin Trent (helps him a lot) come over to help its still confusing.

The last thing zach wants is someone doing his wiring so when he has a wiring problem on the trail he has no idea where it could be or how it was hooked up. Tube work zach needs to do as its his design, now where good for ideas, but zachs the main man.

We can grind, bend tube, tear stuff apart, change fluids ect ect. But the big things Zach really needs to do because if it has problems he will know how, where, what, how, stuff was routed.

Ever think of trying to burn it up? Get yourself aMapp torch and start burning it out of there.. it may stick, it will smoke - but it would sure as heck beat trying to pull it all out!

Mapp Gas + Scraper = done deal!

I was using a heat gun. It's all out that I want to remove.

I dropped the transfer cases today and trans will be tomorrow. Then I can reassemble all that stuff this week. I got my power steering lines made and mounted the reservoir. Bought a new master cylinder and new rear brake caliper. Putthose in but I still can't get the brakes to bleed properly. I need some vaccuum I think so that will have to wait.

I did a few more things but I'm on my phone. I'll take some pictures tomorrow.

I dropped the transfercases and transmission over the weekend, the missing roller bearings and sealed up the 203, the 205 I need to swap the front output to the 1350 yoke, then I think those will be ready, besides the fact I cant figure out how this shifting mechanism works. I will have to call NW Fab.

The transmission needs a filter and fluid, then I am just going to hope that it works, because I dont want to spend time or money to rebuild it right now.

How about two manual transmissions. I hear that you get some rediculous crazy crawl ration with that.

I see dual 3 and 4 speeds on old CJ rock crawlers all the time.

Good stuff.

Or 3 speeds forward and 3 speeds in reverse. Oh yeah. 95 in reverse. Awesome.
