Well, I finally got into this stage of building Rusty! THANKS Bruiser and Mudgod for all the great help! I could not be doing this without your help.

Bye Bye trusty ol' Ford 8.8

More mods

Yet to be installed is the 4.1:1 Klune-V, Propane fuel system and the IROK 42" tires. Almost have the T-case out and then will be waiting on the Klune-V to get here. Still getting the front Dana 60 ready, it will be 5.86:1 and locked with full hydro steering and high steer.

I just playing! Rusty is going to be rebuilt better than ever! I just glad to be finally able to repay some of the work he has done on the K50. Mark really is doing some major upgrades.

energy

I admit my energy level has all but vanished, medical reasons which I will not go into but, with friends such as y'all the work is getting done. Glad I was able to help out. So long as I can get my butt into the drivers seat I'm gonna wheel.
Main goal is to make the katemcy run, hope it all falls into place by then, there will be a test run at Gilmer in April.

It will happen OldGoat, I don't care if it takes a few more nights of wrenching or a 100 more nights of wrenching. We will get Rusty back on the trail.jamminzz jamminzz It will defeintely be worth it with all the mods you are doing this go around. I can't wait to see the look on your face when you climb DeWoody without any assistance.smokin

oh yeah!!!

Got the t-case out for cleaning and total rebuild, got the rear end completely finished, brakes, shocks and all, working on the front when I feel well. Am gonna make Katemcy and yep if I do not feel strong then camp and visiting will have to suffice. Bet I haul myself into that seat for a run or two!
Can you taste the huevos rancheros? The fish and fries? Pancakes, eggs and bacon? Can you see the excellent scenery? Can you just feel the rocks flexing the suspension, changing planes quickly and bumping your rig up and down? People laughing and oohing and ahhing. The rock lizzards? Gonna be great. Can't wait.

Mudgodess and I came by your shop about 6 this morning. We thought about moving the Titan around to the back of the shop. I also thought it would have been funny to put the back tires on Rusty. Seen you had the T-case out. The wife likes the new wheels.
