Whatchya gotta get done

Just wondering what mods and non mods we all have to do. I've got front locker probs and a hub to replace. I need to flip my rear springs around also. Other than that I think I'm good to go. I doubt I'll get any wheelin' in before then so I shouldn't break anything else

Adjust my steering box, adjust my caster so I can steer and drive with the front shaft installed, need to do some semi major fendor triming and I need to drop my newly installed tank and fix the fuel level sending unit.

I may pull the rest of my interior and Hurculine the floor but I'm thinking that may wait till spring when it gets warm again.

Oh ya and I definatly need to get my CD changer back in there so I've got some tunes to listen to. If not I'll go crazy if I have to listen to Beezil all day long on the CB.

Track down slight vibe at 80 mph.
Wax shocks.
Polish my knob. (it's a manual).
Replace cracked driver side cup holder.
Whew, lots to do, better get Jeeves off the Bently and on to the XJ.

There is a possibility that I'll have 60s in front and rear...if not that's the first project after winterfest...

a cage also tops the priority list as well...

Are you sure that is all you have to do.

Mark, he needs friends like you to remind him, or else he'll just work on unimportant things like the heater!!

BTW, what do you mean "make it pretty"? Sean's rig is BEAUTIFUL!

I'm probably not going to worry about the traction bar, and I'm definately not doing anything about the heim. I'm redesigning the front suspension this winter and don't want to waste money on upgrading something that I'm going to throw away. And like Goat said, it's [b:7d42d7b96e]BEAUTIFUL[/b:7d42d7b96e].

Wheelbase modification. Go get your tape measure out and check your center pin to spring eye distances. I was going to do it, but RE doesn't use the stock offset and it'll be too much work and I might need a new driveshaft.

let's see,
install 8.8 (got the perches ground off last night, so we are moving along)
regear front to 4.10 to match 8.8
put the mini spool in the 8.8
cut out rockers and replace with 2x6 tubing (picking that up today)
pull t-case again, and fix front seal leak, and see if I can figure out the clicking noise inside. Have had it apart, and can't find anything wrong. Still works fine, so I may say screw it!
Got the other wheels mounted up this weekend.
Need to intall a front locker once the money comes in (stupid Christmas)
How necessary is an engine tranny skid? Don't have one, and wondering if it is necessary for Attica? We don't have rocks in Central IL.
Was going to add 2" of lift, but don't have the funding right now.
Oh, and try and slow down some of the oil leaks.
Good thing I am trailering this thing!
