Recently Picked up a new rig, Ram 2500, to pull the HQ19, pulls like a dream now. Today I got the Air Compressor installed underneath the bed (this was a feat doing it by myself). its secured from bolts inside the bed. Ran the line to the licemse plate with a QD fitting to make it easy. All electrical is wired up to a switch pannel on the dash.

Man, I spent way too much money at Expo East but I'm excited. CampCargoKits.com kitchen set up, Truma cooler, Thunderbox toilet for the wife, Lion Energy battery, BruTek french press, other misc. camping items and of course lots of patches. I'm excited to get it all in the next few weeks.

Lots going on with mine, stripped out my old home made drawer and hatch box, installed noise mats, and began building our new storage/drawer/fridge system and cleaning up and re-routing all the wiring. Amazingly enough, once I spoke with the "older" guy in "parts" my local Toyota dealership had the interior panel fasteners in stock.

I'm off all week this week and we've got dang near perfect weather so I've put the frame and mechanicals on hold and am pressing hard on getting the tub and other body parts knocked out and painted. The last of the panels to paint is currently primed, the grille and windshield frame and will be getting paint tomorrow. I've got the bottom of the tub prepped and primed and I will be trying to get the interior of the tub cleaned up and primered tomorrow.

Got the grille and windshield frame painted today on the CJ2A and made a little progress on getting the interior of the tub cleaned up but not finished. Hope to finish up the tub interior tomorrow and lay down primer. Oh and adjusted the clutch linkage on the CJ5.

"Cleaned" some of the mud off (it's raining here so...)

Also ran up to a couple of pick-n-pull yards:

-Got a couple extra OEM cross bars so I can stabilize my roof basket a bit...some addition bracing and attachment points.

-I have an idea for the rear tire carrier so I can get the spare out of the basket. Wandered through the yard and ended up grabbing the tire carrier off an old Mitsubishi Montero. Should be able to modify and seems sturdy enough.

-Was hoping to find some tow mirrors for this body style but no luck so I guess I'll buy some new aftermarket ones.

Got the interior of the tub primed day before yesterday. Didnt make any progress yesterday as I used that time to reset my garage and do a garage purge so I could get a little more organized. Today I'm going to try to get the exterior of the tub primed and the interior painted.

Got the M416 hitched up to the XJ for it's VTR-68A inspection Thursday morning. Drained the trans and tcase for the CJ2A and found caramel in there lol. Pulled the top cover for the transmission and found some rust but not an excessive amount. Will be filling with appropriate fluid and doing some short interval changes.



Made for a nice design in the oil drainage.
