:whiteflag I got home today and found a letter from code enforcment in my mail box. I guess my neighbors finally got tired of looking at my truck:cry I now have 30 days to get this thing to move under its own power , which is where the problem lies. (1)I pulled the motor and tranny awhile back to put a new oil pan,timing gears,intake, and fix some leaky gaskets. And i am doing a tranny swap. I have everything just a bout ready to go back in.(2) I need to square up the front axle with the rear and replace the c bushings and radius arm bushings and install some new coil spring mounts(3) I have started a shackle flip in the rear I need to finish (i had the motor in the garage to work on , on the crappy weekends, and the shackle for the nice ones)(4) i have new shocks for all 4 corners(5)I also have new set of ring and pinion gears for the rear , if i can get them in great if not ill have to wait. Plus a couple of cosmetic repairs along with a new spray bomb paint job. Anybody willing to help , i have beer:beer and a grill :rockon . Any help would be appreciated. I am willing to return the favor

MY OBJECTIVE
I would like to have this thing street worthy by the end of the 30 day period so i can go turn donuts in the grass in front of the codes building. This hit me kinda hard since i had slow down the work a couple of months ago cause im a new daddy, and a little short of money .i have just about everything here or its on its way
thanks guys

If ya'll want to come out I still have a ton of stuff to do.I got the engine put back in friday night . Got a couple of odds and ends done saturday.
old79bronco :thumbup came out sunday and got the tranny and transfercase up there to build the new crossmember . I still need to get a flywheel for the 5speed before i can get everything up there for good. I still have to replace all the bushings on the front end . Im gonna try and get as much of the small stuff as i can get done by myself this week . so hopefully it will be mobile this weekend. I still have to bend up a new exhaust system, do a little tlc and get it spraybombed. Ill probably be up and about around 10 or so . pm me and ill give you my address and cell number .

I found out a couple of weekends ago what happened. My neighbors next door are selling their house, and when the real estate agent did pre inspection and add pictures , took one look over here and 2 days before the sign went up,,, Bam , here is a letter from codes and compliance. I lived here for almost 3 years and had a couple of projects on blocks and nobody said anything . I just hate to rush this thing though, oh well .I live in a yuppie neighborhood with volvos and beamers it was only a matter of time . If only i had neighbors like yours
