Well I am not gonna get the steel welded in.
Screw the rockers LOL.

My battery seems to have lost all of its juice during my extended stay on its side in Moab.

I installed this one for WF:






I wasn't happy with the way the factory hold down fit the battery, so bought and installed this from Rusty Offroad.











Other than no stickers included with the battery hold down(WTF Rusty), I am happy with it. Is it March yet?

Still haven't touched the jeep. Need to change fluids, throw on steering box brace and gas her up. Everything else isn't important. Like reenforcing my frame so it doesn't tear apart.

Usually. One year I built my steering and the test drive was to attica. I was under mine last night and remembered the tail pipe fell off in moab and the muffler is hanging down.

Oh like normal I am. Still haven't touched the jeep yet. Did get it started up the other night but that's about it. It seemed to work ok out in moab last time we had it out so might not even screw with it and just run it. Still even has full tank of fuel in from moab.

Yes I'm cutting it close as well.. Finished up front brake line (ran ss braided line down track bar to a T block on the truss and hard lines out to the calipers) hydro assist and steering today. Still need to cut the front driveshaft down, get the 37s mounted and hope I don't have to do a whole bunch of trimming, run air line from compressor in the back to the front locker, and run all the wires for the compressor

Re: What do you need to get done before WF?

I still have to order tires and a nice bendy aluminum tie rod. And maybe a new winch rope and battery.
