It all depends on a few things.
First, if I can get my wheels drilled by then I'll be installing the 44.
Relocate rear shocks.
Replace both fans
Run fan bipass switch
Matty has a great idea on how to install seat belts (harness) and I may
try that.
Replace one tire, install spare on one of my WE's.
Rock lights
Repair tie rod and build a spare

thats it....one weekend of work.

It depends on how ambitious I'm going to be, but most likely run through

maintenance items (fluid changes, grease things, tighten nuts and bolts)

Fix leaky fuel hose at fuel sender

Finish inside Hi-lift mount

I really don't have the time for the SYE/driveshaft/rear springs and shackles install at the moment.

I need to get a appointment for OTR Fab to bend some 1.5" dom for me to fab up the rear shock hoop, and drill some real big Holes in the floor... Other than that change the head gasket.. for some reason the exhaust smells like coolant lately... Oh yeah rob a bank to pay for some new wheels...:gee:

lol.. well lets see.. I remeber someone working on hubs (Moab was it?) and I do remember welding on something too ;) That reminds me... Need to find a lighter shade for the goggles cause that one was too damn dark.

Oh yeah.... I do have some things to do: stiffen up the front end of the jeep cause there is this weird creak that I think is indicating a crack which for the life of me I can't find... so preventino is the key :D (be ready for a whole new look on the jeep by Big Bear :D ) And.. maybe I'll finally do my antenna mounts right (doubt it though).

Whoo-hoo! Alloy USA finally got their shipment in. So it looks like my Super 44 will be in by Big Bear time. Scott is slapping it all together as we speak. Picking up the 33-spline shafts tomorrow.

Now I just gotta recruit someone to help me put it in on Sunday. :)

This trip is next weekend right?
So what do I decide to do? Remove the entire air conditioning system.
Hmmmm.....it appears to have went well, I just need to put it all back together....but you know how that can be.
Got the tires changed/repaired. New glass in the front (new glassssss....ohhhhh! :) )
New tie rod is made, still need to build a spare...with no material here.
Great...
Trying to figure out a nice tool storage and spare mounting configuration.
But I'll be there!

Bumper is sorta in. Gotta drill the passenger framerail where it's missing holes. I just doubled the front winch box corners so I can bolt the tow bar mounts to it.
Relocate the vacuum reservoir, mount highlift, maybe hook up the remote braking. Really thinking of tossing a J20 box in it this week too, but fearing it after watching what BBurge went through.
