I think im going to hold off on the engine. I don't want it to sit, throught the winter and what not.And i also want to get the body done. Trying to get the axles done right now, So i can get the frame out, And then gotta get the bottom of the body done, so i can get it back on the frame.

I want to get the frame and body back in one piece so it will fit in the garage.lol... Not really wanting them to sit out in the weather.

Dont want anything to rust through. Just means more unnecessary work, and that's something anyone would want to avoid.

Got my rear gears and bearing kit in... Still waiting on crush sleeve elimination kit and front gears.



Before




After,

Finished up the rear brakes. Cleaned,deleted emergency mechanism and installed new parts. Painted everything also.

Also cleaned the rear end,rear drive shaft,tcase linkage and painted it.

Guess i'm going to order a new rear yoke, so i don't have to have a bastard ujoint.

Its going to be a mud race truck...Dirt race truck basically. Most tracks around here are moist dirt drag racing... We do some traveling and get some other types of tracks.

The body is going to be Bright Cobalt Metallic blue(Made by Kirker), And the body will be basically stock. Probably have a 6inch Cowl hood.

Bottom of body will be prepped and painted a thick gloss black. And the whole interior of the body will be prepped primered for bedliner. I can't remember what brand i got.


Roll Cage still needs to be bought or just fabbed up, and painted silver. Got some cheap ag paint to do it.

Basically just waiting on money$$.... I quit buying parts for it, So i can get the holidays out of the way.

Need to get frame and axles done so i can roll it out and get the body in the building. Frame is done,Besides some fabrication to mount the rear shocks in the new location. Waiting on parts to come in for the rear axle. And havn't started on the front axle yet. But its pretty well painted.
