today remounted the fuel cell, started fabing the slide out tool box for the back, pulled the axles out of the rear and checked them for wear or any issues (really just to see what it had), and found some screwed up studs in the process.

Finished up wiring in the winch and remote mounting the controller box. All is well and the winch works, at least spooled in and out free lined. Ill do some easy pulls with it tomorrow to get used to its feel.  :thumbs: :dancefool:

Got an alignment done at Downtown Break and Alignment.  Steering wheel is actually straight again.  Now I need to see what this thing will do.

Washed it, and waxed it.  Then went exploring dirtroads; so now its all nasty again.

Drove it.  :rotflmao:
To south Ft Worth to help a buddy move his stuff from storage to his house.
Seems I just went down there the other day to help him unload the U-Haul and put his stuff in storage.  :whistling:

Poor guy had to move back from Montrose, Colorado.  :willy_nilly:
The place he was working up there shut down and he could not find another job that paid anywhere near what he was making.
Theres a few more reasons but that was the main one.
He looked EVERYWHERE between there and Denver.

BTW...
Got a set of front disco's out of the deal. Brand new :dance005:
He got them for free from someone he knows in Montrose.
All it cost me was 1/2 a tank of gas and my time to help him.
Would have done it for nothing.  :thumbs:
