    Hooked up some ground EFX. j/k Got the rock lights halfway installed. Ran 8 lights from WalMart. Like $15.00 a pair. All to two Solenoids or relays, then to one switch mounted inside the center console with my CB. I also have circuit breakers installed in line as well between the solenoids and the battery, all 12 guage wire. Ordering Firestick and mount this week. Just have to ground all of the lights and run power from the selonoids and the rocklights will be done. They should be really bright. I have a wiriing diagram if anybody is intrested. Thinking about doing a right up on it. Will take some pics when it stops raining.

    Thanks. Steering is done, for the most part. Fucking transfer case is fucked. I think the chain is stretched. it is making a ton of noise.

    Well, finally got some paint on the arms. Doesn't look so ghetto fab now. Still need to paint the crossmember but I am going to wait until we fab up the belly skid. Here are some pics. Also painted my ram.


    I need to get some poser flex shots for you guys. Maybe if we get up to the shop next week I will put it up on the fork lifts and get some shots.

    Finally got this thing out and tested. I know. But I it was dark out and a spur of the moment run. Went out ot Ocitillo saturday and put the zj threw a decent beating. I was most surprised at how it did at high speed. Crusised down San Felipe wash at about 75 mph for a solid 10 min. Was racing a pre-runner ford ranger with CO's and all glass front clip/ rear fenders. Took the guy like 3 miles to catch up and passed me when I let off. It was nice to see the thing work. No breakage, seemed stable in the rocks. Went up the back side of blow sand and climbed over the larger rocks on the top. I am over all pleased with it. We will be up at the shop this weekend to finish up he belly skid and I will get some poser flex shots on the fork lift. And get some real pics the first weekend of March at TDS.

    Well finally, as promised here are some poser forklift shots of the ZJ. Everything painted now and ready for TDS this next week. I think it did very well, we could probably get some more flex out of the front if we went with some softer upper springs. But overall I am stoked with how it came out. This pics are with all driveline attached, braklines and straps. Ready to run.

    Well back from TDS had a blast and really hammered on the rig.; Real productive weekend as it came back broke. All in all the rig did extremely well and I am very happy. Here are some pics pf the carnage and a couple of pics from the run. Got to get it fixed for EJS now, and get some sort of cage, as we almost rolled the thing back over front dropping off a ledge.


    So the damage report is as follows:
    Two bent CO shafts.
    front drive shaft
    1 rear limit strap
    possible axle seal
    upper ca mount ripped unibody some
    drive upper front arm ripped off on axle side
    1 rim squared
    Front ARB air line ripped
    couple rock lights destroyed
