I'll start the annual "crap, GSW is almost here and my rigs not ready" thread.
So, what do you guys have on your list?
mine is big.
make rear lower arms
bolt in rear end
trim passenger side rear
weld and install front suspension
wire e fan
mount front coilovers
plate front and rear of unibody
full weld everything that's currently tacked
figure out a headlight solution
You have a long list.
Here's my "have-to" list:
Re-wire trailer brakes
Load ZJ on trailer
Drive to Moab
My "want-to" list:
Replace header panel and install fancy headlights from Rick
Drill out swaybar mounting bolt so I can re-attach swaybar
Install Taurus Fan w/ controller
Replace front axle seals (again, not sure why they're leaking again already)
Build rear storage compartment
Do a better job sealing the heater bypass hose on the water pump
I guess that's one up-side to me breaking the ZJ so early in the season last year. It was all ready to go for GSW, didn't have time to break anything else, and I've already fixed most of the problems that showed up in Ouray.
dubj - that is a very long list. Is it any shorter from last year?
- Help Tyler finish his rig. That list is long, but the work was started last fall.
- Replace my leaky power steering pump, replace my leaky radiator, replace all the A/C lines, install new headlights (why not the whole front end is taken apart) and install a transmission cooler
Holy crap there's just not enough time!
Need to do:
Get brakes working.
Fix leaks i.e. Oil pan, rear diff, t-case and anything else I find.
Replace/fix stripped screw on psc reservoir
Finish front end grill, lights pass fender etc.,
Re-build trunk tool storage
Tighten/shim psc ram ends
Change front diff fluid
De-rust and repaint rear bumper, ca's rear axle, sliders etc
Build new exhaust
Repair rear brake line
Wish I could:
New front selectable locker
New tires 37x12.5/17 maxxis creepys
Finnish rear fenders
And probably more but that's the main priority

All of that work you guys are doing stresses me out. I think I'll just go camping a few times to get ready.
But your bringing some brews right?
Find the friggin time to take off of work...vacation time isn't a problem, it's getting people to leave me the fawk alone so I can take it. LOL.
Hughes plenum kit (not for the plenum, but intake gasket is shot and do it once, do it right)
Bleed brakes (thank you Speed Bleeders)
Try to take up some steering slop
Fluids (of course)
Install adjustable trackbar
Track down oil leak - HPOP or IPR, not sure
Fluids (damn expensive diesel)
Hopefully not have to unload yard trash just to put it back on when we get back
If you're going to have a jockey box already . . . I might be able to bring a keg too.
I should have my jockey box, and I can pick up more ice in Green River. It's a 1 tap box though.
I've got a few things to do still buying a towrig, rear long arms, install 9in that still need brakes brakelines etc, frame stiffners, sye, daves headlights lights, fluids etc
