    Built a lot of vehicles in my day. This one has been the most frustrating. It's nothing we cannot fix or overcome. It's the time of the year and the multiple projects. So much still to come, but nothing here so we sent the jeep off for graphics and a new skin.

    Holy crap. Canít believe everything hasnít showed yet. I know you all have been working on this for 8 months. Hard to get the word out and gain interest if you miss all the jeep events.

    Yeah.... It sucks. The steering system is on backorder and won't be in for 3 weeks.... But that is an easy work around. Other stuff needs to co.e in and be installed before we put major parts on.... Or we start playing the games of install and remove. You k ow how things start to look after they get put on and taken off over and over. It's being a pain in the ass.

    We have been on a push working nights to get this Jeep moving. There has been a lot of attention to detail in removing undercoating and spraying the frame. So what should take a few days takes weeks. But we are at the point where the Jeep is starting to come together. We still have to install the roll cage and some other big items. About 1/2 done.

    Exhaust went on today. We had to put in a turndown just after the muffler and before the rear axle. With the 6-packs, there is no room for an exhaust pipe exit.

    I will shoot some updated pictures but it is in the trailer.
