    did the 4406 swap also only to find I had a t case to trans gasket leak so out it came and while it was back out I took some sand paper and polish to it

    Also decided while I was sanding and polishing my alcoas needed a going over

    Drove home, and hit one of the previous junkyards again.

    Picked up a chrome grill from a 96 Mountaineer for possible grill swap at a later time. Only $17...

    Changed out my stock 3.55 gears for 4.10's. Been wanting to do this since I moved up to 32's, what an improvement. Shift points are back to normal, she feels like my old girl again.

    Your patience is such that the word plethora does not adequately describe it. lol! When I figure out my work schedule and link up with you for that basket we can make the hand off then.

    Took URV into Firestone yesterday to get new tires, and ordered some red LED's to throw in the dashboard just to give her a unique look.

    Soon I'll be fixing the damn ABS light, and figure out why she's groaning at low speed turns when 4X4 Low is engaged.

    I replaced all 4 ball joints and fabbed up a makeshift front bumper for Wreck-It-Ranger over the weekend, now to get the funds for the body work. Drove it to work today and she drives like a dream unless i have to make a panic stop. She may need some brake parts
