July 5, 2008Hy Steve, sorry to hear you have to spend the summer in Iraq. Hopefully its going as well as possible. Did you get any fireworks there?
For me summer is going well. I graduated June 16th and started work on the 18th. d:- D The 4th was good too. My girlfriend and I spent most of the day in CDA. Their firework show is awesome.
July 9, 2008Hey guys. Everything is going well here, back on the westside working and gathering parts for my solid axle swap. Also been enjoying the new truck.
Going back to pullman early June, I can''t wait. Justin we are going to have to make a 7-mile trip when I get back... truck is going to be an entirely different animal!
July 9, 2008Maybe I''ll be able to meet you guys at 7-mile after I get back home.
July 9, 2008That''d be sweet Steve, I have a group of friends in school we went up 4 times since Jan this year, plan on going up more this year. I will let you know in advance when we make the trip!
July 9, 2008Cool, I''ll be back home end of Sept early Oct the lastest. I''m so tired of the heat and sand storms over here.
July 9, 2008Yeah I bet. I have a friend who is a Navy SeaBee and is going back later this year.
July 10, 2008For sure and now that I have a job things are going to get updated and wont have to worry too much about something breaking.
Dave have you started on the truck *or* still a few more parts to round up? Your really going to make going out wheeling difficult to see a SAS truck. On the plus side I''ll get to see what the future may bring.
Steve get back as soon as possible! The weather is great. I want to see that bag truck out at 7-mile! haha Wait no, that wouldnt be to fun.
July 10, 2008I haven''t cut into the truck as of yet. Right now I''m finishing up on the Dana44 for the front, all that is left is re-assembly and a quick squirt of paint. I''m going to order the remaining parts next week. All that is left is to get the rear lift shackles, brake lines, shocks and fabricate steering, then put it all together. I''m trying to have all the parts available before it happens.
I actually just ran through all my numbers and looked at the dates, I''m getting worried as money is getting tight and the date I leave is getting near!!! I''m pushing the buck a little bit cost wise since I''m on a budget, but I do want to get her done!
July 10, 2008Sounds like your relatively to the end. But that sucks things are getting tight. Your going to have to work the corner *or* something!
July 11, 2008LOL yeah the corner.
I guess it''s a good thing that I got a raise today!
