What's your pre-NAC-fest to-do-list?

I know that there's a similar thread in the NAC forum, but this NAC-fest forum is so dead that I thought we could use one here too. So, what do you still need to get done before NAC-fest?

My list:
- new clutch
- new valve cover gasket, oil pressure sending unit, possibly other oil leaks
- remove rear swaybar
- homebrew discos for front swaybar
- mount fire extinguisher and first aid kit
- trim rear fenders and quarter panels
- mount rear bumper
- new lug nuts; I think my shop used an impact gun to put them on
- bedliner the interior
- build storage box
- if all that gets done and there's a week of nice weather, paint the XJ

I will be rolling on 31s, 3.07s, and a D35, with no armor, and no regard for sheetmetal. As long as I can drive it home...

Re: What's your pre-NAC-fest to-do-list?

There's a couple threads on this in the NAC forum, but what the heck - let's breathe a little life into here...

I've done the following:

Speedo recalibration
New motor mounts installed (MORE Torsion Rubber)
Fix missing steering stop

The last two were done by a shop - the first because I'm not up to that level yet, and the 2nd because it was convenient to let them do so at the same time.

Still need to:

- Order/install rocker armor
- Replace catalytic converter (heat shields being rusted away kinda sucks on the trail)
- Rewire driving lights
- Retune CB antenna
- Switch and NAC stickers from "scotch tape" mounting to permanent mounting

Install ARB in rear 44, fill up Powertank, and change the upper and lower rad hoses, and rebuild the t-case Np242.
ARB and t-case is getting done this weekend by a shop.

Re: What's your pre-NAC-fest to-do-list?

The biggest thing...get my new axles in. They were supposed to ship over a week ago, but it's just my luck that parts were backordered. If I have time after I get them I need to fab up some rocker protection.

pick up a set of spare complete axle shafts so now if I have a brake I can just swap out the whole thing.

Re: What's your pre-NAC-fest to-do-list?

Well, I got my rocker armor on this weekend, and am having the catalytic converter replaced the end of the week (took one look at 215K worth of heat and rust and said "NFW"). The list's getting shorter, and it's just the little things left to do that can, if necessary, be left until a later date.

While I'm thinking of it, here's a tip for you folks marking where to drill for rocker armor and the like: white-out works a heckuva lot better than a pencil - made my life a lot easier.

Re: What's your pre-NAC-fest to-do-list?

All I really still need to do is finish Herculining the interior and mount my fire extinguisher, first aid kit, and two remaining tow hooks. Almost there...

Fire Extinguisher! Doh!

Thanks for reminding me - I need to take the rubber mallet to mine to loosen up the powder.

All I need to do now is mount two more tow hooks, one front and one rear. Seven more days!
