Sunday I installed the new rear driveshaft from Denny's. Nice, quality part. Had to source a new yoke for the rear of the transfer case as a CV joint does not bolt up to a non-cv yoke. Not much info about the Dana 21 transfer case out there. I can tell you that a yoke for a Dana 18 / 20 with ten splines fits perfectly. Neapco p/n 2-4-4061x for a 1310 series cv joint.

Finished the Raptor lining of the cage parts. Looks like paint on the jeep itself in 2 weeks. Gotta step away from it for a bit to get some other stuff done.

Back to piddlin with the jeep. Getting closer to paint, but I have some detail work to do first so as not to worry about scratching it.

Decided to put a bent piece of treadplate on the body sides for 2 reasons. 1) it fixes the issue of all the holes I have in the body sides from the original side steps and 2) it gives me a point to tie the rock sliders to for extra stout stability. Everything is bolted, not welded, and Ill use all stainless hardware. I feel like the front hoop is better supported this way as well. Not that I "plan" to use it.

Yesterday I finish welded the nerf bars. E6013 rod and everything is 1/4 or 5/16 thick. Maybe the worlds strongest side protection! Deer season is behind me so Ill be back piddling with this pretty regularly again.

I'm back! Took a few months off to get away from the project and work on other things. I started sanding on it so it will get paint pretty soon.

Sanding, sanding, and more sanding. 220 done and starting on 400. Painting is definitely the easy part. This is why it took so long for me to get to this. I do not like body work.

3rd coat applied last night and I unmasked it this morning. Turned out pretty good for a hillbilly paint job.

Side armor, nerf steps, roll cage hoop and cage bolted together, Cummins decals on hood, and fender flares. Not much left. Oh, and then there's brake lights, ground wire on alternator, windshield, drivers seat installed, bleed brakes, bleed clutch, fuel gauge wired, wiper motor wired, and fan motor wired. I'd like to have it done and ready for a local parade by the end of July.
