been a while since i updated so i will play catch up

took out my old busted seats and installed a 60/40 bench out of a 91 silverado.  had to modify where it bolts in but everything got installed and this seat is much more comfortable.  also installed a newer backseat for the kids out of cudas blazer. 
thought i had pics of the new seats but guess not.  i will add some tonight

went and ran woodys wash some before and after pics  :vtongue:

ended up crushing my rocker panel on the passenger side so bad i can't close the door so i just took them off.  will make some tube doors at some point.  the tailgate got massively deformed so i removed that and the tailgate also won't open.  i will figure out how to get it open and am just going to gut it and install my tail lights into the gate like patricks. 



















just all bad luck at this point.  whatever is the worst that can happen will

i don't think yours was worse man... my door was separated at the bottom and the door somehow was angled down everything was bent.  it wouldn't line up with the latch.  believe me i pounded on it for a while before i said screw it.  they needed to come off either way

things i need to do in the coming weeks before bb.

fix cracked frame with this or similar kit http://offroaddesign.com/catalog/steeringkit.htm
install and setup crossover steering.  still need to get 2wd steering box, tie rod to use for steering after modifying, and any other parts i may need for that.

i think i'm going to hold off on the 52 front spring swap and use that money to put towards bb so i can be sure to have enough money to go.  would really like to cage the cab at least also but i guess we'll see.  i also need tires or a couple spares at least

been a while since i had any money to throw at the kkattillac but today was joyous. 
ordered my frame repair, hydro assist kit and end cap for steering box.  need to just get my drag link and box and the parts will be complete. 
i was motivated from ordering some parts today so i came home and removed the rear seat, roll bar and carpet that was horrible to prepare for the dovetail.  its gonna be sexy.

had a broken center bolt in my drivers side spring pack in the front so i took care of that this weekend. 

below is the broken bolt.  the bolt literally has no threads at all its pretty much just smooth from all the rubbing or vibration. 

1 thing down 100 more to go it feels like. 

hopefully i get my frame repair kit this week so i can get that put on and the 4wd replacement steering box i got from rompin.  then i just need to do a few small things and i should be ready for bb. 



just all bad luck at this point.  whatever is the worst that can happen will
