Yea been meaning to do an update. Just been too busy at work to do it.

Big thanks to Cory and Paul for coming over to help this weekend.

I got the axles back from AOI Friday and started reassembling them. I didn't get as far as I wanted to on my 3 day weekend but the axles are assembled, highsteer is installed, and the hydro assist ram is installed. I still have to make the drag link but I will wait till the jeep is on its full weight to do that. I'm getting a ARB mini compressor from Paul to run the front zip locker and I'm working on the new dash. I'm off all next week so I'm hoping to have the body set back on the frame next week so I can do the cage tie-ins to the frame and get the wheelwells cut to fit the tires.

I have been lacking on taking pics but here are the axles

Got the traction bar built tonight. Once it cools I can paint and install it. I'm out of gas for the welder so I'm done welding till I can go get the bottle fill Saturday morning

DELAY ALERT, DELAY ALERT. Instead of finishing the gauge cluster so the electrical can proceed. Ryan is going to a gun show this weekend. With the mod money to finish the Jeep. :shock:

Progress has been slow. Been busy with some other things. Had to do some work on the truck and have been out fishing on the bay a couple of days.

I'm going shooting some time this weekend but plan on working on the jeep the rest of the weekend
