<---- Showfield, which I don't think the question was really directed towards me, lol.

Wonder how the AWD will handle the mud, don't think the 22s will.

which reminds me. if ANY of you go to a wreaking yard between now and the show, and spot a 95-96 sport that has a double cardan REAR drive shaft, swipe it for me, AND I WILL PAY YOU FOR IT AT THE SHOW. i'm having a hell of a time finding one here.

Will keep an eye out, I know Todd is going to a few pick and pulls for his project. If I tag, I will keep an eye out. I might also look here at our local pick and pull just to look around. Will keep you posted if I go and see anything.

I'll try and check out Harry's for you this weekend, bud.

All I've managed to get done for Morgan so far is acquiring 37" MTR's Haven't had a chance to get them mounted yet, though Still need to procure all new steering components and re-paint a whole lot of things, plus figure out how the hell to fix my trainwreck of a rear bumper...

Somebody find me a winning lotto ticket, PLEASE!!!

I'm going to need days to get everything I need there! Hoping to get a bulk of the hard parts this weekend.

I'll be at AFN for sure on Saturday. Will have the Saab though, unless I can get some explorer badges for it Engine is nearing removal time in the XLT. Then it's clean, repair, and replace time!

Spas what wrong with the rear bumper
My new read bumper mounted and has the reverse camera in
Looking to get the pair of new tires and one new rim on
Also at least the rear re geared, diff cover and locker finished
Also possibly have the front re geared that not look like it going to happen in time
Also ordering new radius arms from James duff and installed

If Jay does his solid front axle then I could buy it front him instead but h knew how Jay is

Halfway through the d35 ttb swap. Longer shocks should be here tomorrow. Should finish up the front end this weekend then get the tranny and rear pinion leak fixed and redo the rear setup\custom driveshaft.
