Things I have to do before I can leave, think I can do it??

Ok, I have today off and then Mon-Wed to get this done, and I work 40 hours b/w tomorrow and Sunday night. So here's the list:

Fab up some rock rails(this will be the third set that I've made, so it shouldn't take THAT long)
Put my tire carrier on and finalize a latch for it
Put endcaps on my bumper and paint the whole thing after I trim it back some
weld up my rear quarter panels
do up an LCA bracket on my HP30 with 4.56s and then install the axle
Get my friend to install my 4.56s in the 8.25 which he was supposed to do 2 months ago(great mechanic, lousy sense of time)
Install the discs on the 8.25
Trim my BWs in the rear
Find a front DS(this is a major one, but Kudzu has offered to help if all else fails )
Get a fire extinguisher
Find a spare tire(think I got this taken care of last night)

I'm sure there's more, but that's a healthy list for now. Guess I should go get started

Weel I got my tires from Florida and got them mounted. Got the Harmonic Balancer on (sort of) and The roof rack almost done. So I have to finish the roof rack, put the fan on the engine. Mount the roof rack. Get my track bar back and mount it. Sequre everything in the xj! Three speaker boxes and one tool box. Mount the spare on the roof rack and high lift too. Hmm I'm sure there is more. Oh yea test the new 33x12.50 tires on your rims Mike! She looks sweet on 33's!

My TTD list is thankfully short:

*add a couple bolts to the rear bumper & front hook mounts.
*change all oils, wash windows,
*get Rons old rims from Charlotte, mount new 35s (or if the 35s don't show by Tues) mount 33x9.5 on oem steel wheels.
*load Jeep, point west

The 'wish I had done' list is huge.

What I did last week list:

Picked up the HP 30, installed 4.56s, ARB, Hub conversion w/ axles, trimmed the crap out of the coil buckets to work with OTK steering. Cut out and weld on the new truss. Lots of grinding and welding installing the new Claytons LA kit. Install new Currie tracbar. Align front end and work out the little bugs. Mount ARB compressor and switches and electric. Mount limiting straps (I knew I kept Rustys towhook brackets on for a reason ). Installed CB and antenna but will probably run the coax when I get there.

Whats left? Trim a little more off my front fenders. Pick up my spare tire from a friend. Change oil and check t-case level. Figure out what tools I'm bringing, do laundry, pack and head east 1400 miles .

Safe traveling,
Crunch

Ok I got the front of the engine back together and fired her up over the weekend. Have not moved her yet though. Mounted on of the spaeker boxes and working on the other two. Got the Roof rack mostly done. Just have to weld on the rails.

My list is down to:

Finish and install front bumper
Work out some type of hood vent (had some cooling problems last trip to uwharrie)
Check, tighten, and grease all suspension parts
Load up the jeep, and do a little more food shopping.

Not too bad. -Tim

All that is left for today and tonight is to moutn the tire to the rack and the high lift. and mount the rack to the jeep. Oh I also got to sequre the sub and tool box in the rear. Other than go rent a trailer tomorrow and pack I'm there! Two years in the making!

It sounds like there might be a few people up late in camp turning wrenches like last year.

I'm ready to go, just have to pack my camping gear and clothes and I'm outta here tommorow afternoon.

Say it with me, no rain, no rain, no rain.
