Those things hanging in the pic's are the quick disco's I recently installed. I took them off for the pic's and have not placed the bolts in the frame to hook them on to when they are off. This is the first time I unhooked them.

Just bought the Riddler rear diff cover. It was on sale at 4wheelparts for $99. I paid 108 out the door.

The Riddler diff cover is on back order. Gonna take 4-6 weeks to get it. I just changed all of the fluids in the truck. Radiator, oil, tranny, transfer case and diffs. The reason I bought the Riddler cover was because I found a crack in the stock fiber glass diff cover. Its not really leaking, more like seeping. I also got the material to do my front bumper. I have a new pitman arm and steering stabilizer I will be installing soon, also.

What a difference a good alignment makes. I had the alignment done after the lift, but Firestone was having a special for a lifetime alignment today. Paid 130 out the door. Firestone guy told me to bring it in every time I come down from the trail. Just a little update. Hope to get all the parts on in the next couple weeks.

Its been a while since I posted my registry so, I am rebuilding the top of the engine due to cooling system issues. I took the heads into the machine shop and they found a large crack in the cylinder heads.

If you look towards the bottom of this picture you'll see a crack about 2 inches long. Look just under the white chalk mark and above/in between the two bolt holes.

What was once old, is now new again! Or, at least one is new and one is freshly rebuilt. Can you tell which one is the new casting?

I took a bad line on one of the easiest spots on the trail and ended up on my side. A rock and a tree saved me from going all the way over. It was still enough pucker factor for the day though. Here are some pics of the damage sustained from the weekend.

I'm glad I put the riddler cover on, smacked it on a rock backing up.

That's all for now. Like I said, I should be able to get some more shots in the next few days.

I had a good time and have some damage to fix, although, it does add some character.

I got to meet up with some members at the 4Wheelparts customer appreciation run in Gorman.

I've also managed to make some small changes lately. Put on some black steel wheels finally.

Then some 35" tires.

Then some trimming of the front fenders.

Looks like time for some changes. Decided to get a solid front axle to do a SAS. Gonna go leafs all the way around for now. This is what I picked up this morning.

Already purchased some parts. Hope to have the axle rebuilt and under the truck in time to go play at king of the hammers in february.
