So been working on .it every weekend since last time figure out stalling issue readjust distributor. Fan both fans.installed arb switches in dash. Put in floor wrapped exhaust. Installed seats and harnesses. Lenghened fuel pickup in fuel cell. Finally got fuel lines to stop leaking. Installed fuse box.

So buggy not complete but has 2 runs. One to tm and 1 to trail up north. Since last update hooked up winch headlights cooling fan installed skid plate. Put on vent for fuel cell. Put on new yoke but broke straps and sheared bolts installed old crappy yoke back on and it did fine rest of trail. Need to hook up more lights and run vent tubes for axles more gauges just op gauge and tach is all I have for now.

So next project for mine is remove transmission and transfer case, installed monster trams I got from Clint , installed 2 speed atlas, got the trams support in and tmr atlas support ring. Going to shave 14 bolt down thinking tmr 15 bolt kit. Modify leaf springs, redo driveshafts. Still kicking around front solid knuckles and arms , but that is more money. Does alloffroadaz  have a banking program with low interest? Pics to come
