Got flex? Driveshafts done, all body armor and fenders mocked, need paint and final install. Lots of odds and ends done. Just the exhaust, brake lines and swaybar links.

Thanks Ed. Slow going at the moment, work load at the shop is really high. Wish I could just devote the time to this and get it done the way I want. I am way to uptight about big builds, specially with the precious cargo this rig carries around.

So I was driving into town this afternoon and I see this Ruby Rubi coming north on 67. So I says "Shit, that has to be John!" Sure enough it was. Man, that thing is even more awesome than in the pictures!

Yeah, I think for Jeeptober, I'm going to set Maude to full anti squat and try to launch the left side For insurance I'm bringing a rope, one end for my front bumper the other end I'll tie to Doug. Best insurance I can think of that I won't go ass over tea kettle...

Sounds like fun and a good plan! I'm putting this one in the calendar as well! Should be a great time. Ed, I'd like to pull that left line as well.
