Should have my 2wd, 6r80 here next week. Must have called over 40 yards, talked to dozens of Car-parts search yards and all I seemed to hear was "no, those are hard to come by" or they seemed to have over 100K miles...

I have never delayed a project this long before in my life. :(

I hope to be able to jump in and getting something done in a couple weeks when we get back from Moab Safari. I can't complain, we were at Sand Hollow at the beginning of March and now going to Moab. Been travelling which we enjoy.

Got some parts sold (wish they were all out of the shop- that was my goal, to make shop space! lol). Got a few parts in and a few more coming.

Received my F150 4x2 trans. Going 6r again. Came by train.... WOW are we spoiled with Amazon. Took 3 weeks. lol

Sold the cool Mustang bench seat and I bought some killer comfortable, LOW profile full neck/head protection buckets.

Trying to find a mock up sbf engine block... wow, nobody has a used one. $550 from Summit but that's a ton of coin for as often as I'd use it.


Hopefully by the middle of May I can start making some progress.

How did I miss meeting you at Sand Hollow? What Bronco were you in?

I was in my 46 yr old to me one... Here's a pic. I raced at the sand drags, ran trails every day, at the registration place in town eating ribs and hanging out! Wasn't trying to hide! :) Where were you! lol

I guess not in the same places you were LOL. We came in on Wednesday evening (and went to the registration bbq) and left Saturday morning - planned to ride Saturday but the forecast scared us away considering our 33 hour ride home so we hit the road with a jump start. I was hoping to meet you and see that rig in action. It's one of several that led me to build my crawler.

This sounds like a come on or something ;) but we probably should have exchanged phone numbers so we could have hooked up and said Hi since we're a couple of 1000 miles apart!


Nice looking pics- definitely some great action shots there!

I kind of wish I didn't have to worry about sheep metal Lol

We got stuck in a "blizzard" in Nevada. Fighting salt, corrosion and light rust on anything & everything even tho I spent 43 bucks at the car wash!
