The good news is that I've been through every part of it before we took it apart for paint. If the body would have come back from paint today or yesterday, it would have been easy. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for tomorrow. It'll go back together wicked fast once the tub comes back.

And then, if the 40 isn't back together, we'll take something else (probably the faux-lux).

Default Pre-cruise moab

I need a driver's side mirror for my power mirrors.

I'd like to re-seal the rear diff and replace the studs with bolts.

I'd like to weld on some blinker brackets on the front bumper.

I'd like to black out the hood. The paint is wasted anyway.

I think the cruise moab committee stuff will trump all truck work except the mirror glass. I'll probably just do a nut 'n' bolt check and other pre-flight check stuff, load up the universal camping tub and a bucket of spare parts and go.

Anybody have 2* steel shims, before I go ordering some from Roger Brown?
Repost just to be seen.
