maybe if the 4.slow ever gives up ghost. but other than a lifter that is tapping like none other, this one runs like a top.

but i do have a 305 laying around that was bought for my ZJ and never put in. but i do think the ZJ may need it sooner, as it is not sounding so healthy

i am waitin on my tax check to actually order the cage. but i do have most other parts to fix it, everything but shocks. gonna try to get teh t-case together and in next weekend, and the control arm should not be to hard. so it should move under its own power by the end of next weekend i hope.

still have to order shocks, extended brake lines, and the cage. also should probably change the oil in it as well, drain some of the 80-90w out of it lol.

well i was only gonna patch it, then i saw the scrap sheet steel at work, and just cut out what i needed whatever length it was, and it turns out with my pattern, i lack all of about 8" of covering the whole floor. so yeah, pretty much just replacing it all.

trying to decide how much of the interior to put back in now. i think it looks cool without the console and such in it, but i did like having cupholders and a small storage box. so i think i am gonna leave the console out, and just make a small box with cupholders in it.

and i plan on coatning pretty much the whole interior with rustoleum bedliner, i can get it for about $43 a gallon from wally world.
