The old wheels/tires are gonzo already. The suspension is going on a buddies mall crawler. The rest I will be using for trail spares.

Not sure, everything is here except for the River Raider stuff...

I am going to start tearing it down later this week with hopes to get the bedliner sprayed on the week of the 18th.

As far as the install goes - I met a guy at work who is big time into Zukis he has a lift and is going to let me use it while he supervises and helps with some tech. I am going to practice some welding and try and do some of it myself.... if I can trust myself enough to do it. We will see how it goes, if I fawk it up I will just grind it down and let him weld it up. I am really looking forward to it.

Cool as shit that we live just a few miles away from each other, fawker has me wanting to buy a zuki to beat up on.. not gonna happen though, I love my JK too much and I will beat on it hard enough....

Here he is wheeling one he built out at Spring Creek

Still waiting on a few parts.

I was able to get everything torn out this weekend, what a PITA.... really.

I installed the Tuffy enclosure and I love it, it is perfect for my SWAG bins and one of the little Honda generators. I went ahead and installed the Iggie covers on the front seats and Love the way they fit and look.

Will be dropping it off for bedliner tomorrow evening.

About a half of a semester at TAMU for one of my kids in the garage....

Hopefully they will get scholarships (they have 12 years to work on one)
