Garage time has come to a halt the last few weeks as the wife decided that we needed to paint the exterior of the house. Luckily she is an all star and has been doing all the cutting.
Anyhow, I felt some front driveline vibrations and found the front u joint to have considerable play. Made time this week to replace all three front ds u joints. Spicer 5-1310x's. Used the ball joint press I bought for front upper control arm joint axle side bushings and a socket to carefully press them out and in. New Yukon straps went on too. Front vibrations gone! Yeah!

Hoping to find time tomorrow to re-mount this dangling dingle ball.

Dying to get front air locker and on board air going again. This was mounted to the stock shovel by the po. Will re-plumb air lines and make better electrical connections while I'm at it. It's basically just acting as a manifold splitting lines for on board air and front arb. Eventually I'd like to get an arb compressor and dedicate it to lockers only while keeping the existing for inflation/back up. Pretty much the last thing to wrap up savvy tuck and lift.

Then on to the savvy oil pan/tranny skid sitting on the bench!

Spent a gift card on a new air hose (25') . It seems awesome, lays flat, compact and flexible. I got a locking air chuck as well. Much better than the bulky, coily, rubber p.o.s. I have been using on the trail.

Went with these. There were some I liked a little better but not for the price. they're going to get beat up anyway.

Worked on the CB mount today. Added a grounding strap as it was lame before, dremeled off some paint beneath the strap at the screw holes and hope to get tuned in with the swr meter tomorrow.

Got the Savvy engine skid installed. Love it. The oil pan seemed so vulnerable before.

I gave the boy a chance with flappy disc to continue a few squiggles and it left a little to be desired but oh well. He owned it.

Got out to stretch its legs for a few hours today and beat a T storm home!

Loved how everything felt and cant wait to get out on some tougher terrain.
