Well, I still have excessive fuel and therefore excessive smoke but I have managed to complete my spring over axle conversion, installed Rancho shocks on all 4 corners, got the brakes hooked up and bled, installed the locker in the rearend, and got the front driveline built and installed. The front locker can wait until I get around to rebuilding the frontend.
So I'm ready to go as long as nobody minds the smell of raw diesel fuel. If anybody does mind the smell bring me about 8 gallons of filtered cooking oil and then the exhaust will smell like french fries.
