you're ahead of most since you've been around all of us dumbos and seen our mistakes
just all bad luck at this point.  whatever is the worst that can happen will

It will be my daily driver for a while at least until I can afford a truck when I move out.

**UPDATE** Okay so hopefully next weekend me and my dad are going to take the cross state trip to Kingman to get my Dana 44 rear and tires for my Heep. I have the Chrysler 8.25 rear which is better then the Dana 35 but still not reliable enough. The new axle is already beefed up with all the goods so that's great. I cracked open my front Dana 30 and someone was inside it before but there was hardly no wear on the inside so we can hopefully get some money for the guts of that and were gunna build it up with all the great stuff. The tires are 35/12.50/R15 Goodyear Wrangler MT/R's (used once). It will hopefully make it to Florence this year if we decide to go.  :dumb: Once we get paid we plan on doing a 6" long arm lift but we値l see when the time comes.

Yeah it痴 not brand new but for a 4.0 I6 with 60,000 miles and most of the accessories it was $500 and most of the time they池e asking $1000-$2000 with at least 100k on it. Now I just gotta get the transmission rebuilt after draining the fluid and finding it as brown as motor oil (it was transmission fluid) we figured it would be best to get it rebuilt instead of throwing it all in and blowing up the tranny halfway down the street, but at least we can just throw it all in at once. It痴 got a 6.5 rough country lift on it and it痴 raised at least a foot higher than it was before.

I have the transfercase is rebuilt with the slip yoke eliminator kit so it痴 almost done I just have to change the plastic gear for the speedometer then that will be completed. I知 going to get my transmission back on Wednesday and then put that in with the engin hopefully on Thursday we値l see how Murphy痴 law plays out on that one. I hope to be cruising by the end of July! I知 so taking college these next two years so the amount of school I can miss will be very small so I知 not sure if I値l make it out during the times I have college. I知 doing it because I can have my associates degree the summer that I get out of highschool and then if I can join the military I壇 be an E3 then I壇 have free wyotech.
