          • All sorts of detail stuff getting done. It's frustrating to spend so much time on this stuff, but the rewards are always worth it.

            Front driveshaft in. I didn't have to shorten the TJ shaft. Cool.

            Got the transmission floor pannel, t-case access pannel, and twin stick boot in place. I cut 5.5 inches out of the OEM Dodge shift lever and welded it back together, with a slight angle towards the driver. This put the knob right between the cuttng brake handles and the twin sticks. Feels very comfortable. So i then needed to sew-up a black leather shift boot for the transmission. This allowed me to break out my grandmothers' Singer. I'm super happy with how it came out.

            Fabbed up a SS switch pannel for the ARB switches and winch control and welded it to the dash bar. Also made/ left room for future circuits.

                              • Thanks to Vinny, the brakes & clutch are bled. There are issues, but that is for tomorrow.

                                Just pulled the trigger on the engine management system. OUCH!
