Update, front end is done, steering is done. I've been working 7 days a week, 10hr days. Kinda cuts into my wrenching time.

Ok, I should have the rear suspension about done this weekend. I've got engine parts coming. Need a converter yet, and a few other things. I'm trying to get this thing done ASAP. I did buy a enclosed trailer too. 36' gooseneck with a 15' garage and 21' of living quarters. so I've got some work to do to that also. As usual, not enough time.

Ok, I know, I know, it's been a LONG while since I updated this. So, here it goes.

It runs good, everything seems to have payed off. Needs more tire!! Can't get my 14.50 Xtreme's to hook, EXCEPT on the hill climb at the EC4WDA Rodeo this past weekend. Hooked good enough to buy me a 1st place finish in my class! Here's a few action shots from this weekends hill climb.

A little skill, and a lot of luck!!! 3rd on the uphill drags, 2nd in the flat drags, and 3rd on the Big Eliminator hill (also my 1st time over the hill!!).
Some VERY quick rides in my class!! I had a great time this year!

It was nice meeting you and Sarah. Was also a pleasure racing with you. That little Jeep sure will scoot when it feels the breath of the Mistress closing in :lol: Congrats on the trophies and getting over the hill.
