What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

It would be interesting to know what people are doing on their rigs. You might find someone to help or maybe someone with parts you need.

I'll start it off.

Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

Currently I am working of finishing off my remote reservoir for my power steering pump for my hydroassist.

I am also working on a suck down winch.

Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

I need to replace the rear hatch, swap the dented doors for a set that I got from Troy a couple years ago, bang out some dents....and then repaint it.

Frank, I have a pin welder for pulling sheetmetal if you want to borrow it. I also have a full line of DAs and inline sanders as well. Compressed air rules when doing body work.

Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

Control arms are being delivered this week. Was going to post up and see who's got time/room to help me do a upper/lower/drop bracket install next weekend.

Also, kicking around the idea of selling a few items to free up some $ for regear/locker install. May even end up with enough $ to buy a set of BOR leafs and shackles.

Then some armor...

and then...

Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

With the exception of 1 nasty dent on the passenger side rear quarter, the dents are all small enough that I can use my shiny new HF hammer and dolly set.

Everybody sing...

Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

At some point in the near future (I need to order some parts first) I need to replace the cat and muffler. Whoo-hoo..the joys of owning a stocker!

Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

Now that the BOR rig runs........

-Install RE track bar bracket brace
-Install Durango steering box and hydro assist
-Figure out if I have a bent wheel or out of round tire up front
-Finish the re-install of the stereo components after the cage install
-Replace and seal up the oil filter adapter
-Replace the fuel gauge sending unit, probably a new pump since I'll be in there
-Weld on the nifty new sway bar mounts that I got from a Pirate4x4 guy to the axle
-Figure out where to mount the CO2 tank
-Fab up a rubber bushing support mount on the hatch to help keep the rear tire carrier from wiggling
-Fab up legs to the bases of the roll cage to tie into the unibody stiffners
-Finally replace that dented front fender
-Make a decision about if the new Bushwhackers are gonna go on or not..... and then what I'll do for flares if not......


And then........ and then......

Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

Putting flat screens underneath so the rocks can watch tv
Adding a fold out, full size snooker table to the hatch
Adding LED spinners a la http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cL9PU08Xuwo (skip to 55 seconds)
cause I've been playing this game non-stop lately




But really, replacing front pinion seal and putting a PS cooler somewhere safe.

Kind of sketched about the pinion seal replacement, but I assume I'll be relatively safe counting the rotations and then going a little past when re-tightening. (anyone have any words from experience on this?)
