Updated 6/8/2008

These things have been done:
• 4.88 gears (done. Precision gears)
• Fix front of sliders so they don't hit my new tires
(sliced at both ends and welded up courtesy of Mr. Green Machine)
• Lift of some sort: need more than I have now
(now rocking the Slee 4" lift)
• 315 tires (Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ Radials)
• Winch (used Warn M12000)
• New Redline synthetic gear oil in diffs and transfer case (not on original list)
• Head gasket service done by Powderpig (not on original list)
• buy and install synthetic winch rope (not on original list)
• install Slee electrical harness (already own)
• install Center Diff Lock switch (already own)
• install MAF upgrade (not on original list)

These are yet to do:

• install front and rear Slee adjustable panhard rods (own, need to install)
• install John Deere low beam lights (already own)

This might get done. If not, no big deal:
• install new speakers for stereo (already own: Infinitys)
• install rear overhead light (already own)

These just ain't gonna happen:
• Sub tank (someday)
• Drawers
• Fridge

I still need to swap front control arms but I got a couple things done:

Installed Slee Tcase skid plate (replaced crossmember with an unmolested version, thanks to Corbet)

Modified my rear storage unit. It was too tall to have easy access to the Engel. It was also a good time to move one of my stereo amps from the side of the storage unit into the qtr panel to make room for an inverter (may not make the budget till after Rubithon)

I cut out one side dropped it down leaving enough room to hold 2 5-gal scepter cans


and installed a slide for the fridge.




Still waiting on some things to complete my "secret project"

I still trying to design a custom skid plate. What a complex 3-D project that has become.
I also am looking at upgrading my steering components with some from 4X4 Labs. We will see how the finances look for that one.
Lastly I have leak in the AC system that I need to track down and fix.
