Fixed:
-Broke driver side ujoint
-CB hooked back up since car accident

-Rewelded roof rack so spare doesnt hit the roof
-Replaced old steering box
-Wrapped Injectors + line for heat soak issue
-New exhaust manifold

Braced my steering box to fix the unibody around the box from tweaking. I should honestly just plate the whole unibody but just too lazy

Yeah, that steering looks great. You should deep six the front fenders and comp cut the rear quarters and stretch it a couple inches. It will complete the militaristic look.

Locked the rear now and headed to the 'con right after it snowed. Expected only 1-2" but got a lot more than that but we still went. Broke a lot more things than I wanted to.

Honey badger has custom ruffstuff long arms now! Also went to the rubicon again this year and finally made it up soup bowl. I'll post a video if anyone cares to watch it. Starting to plan a 60/14bolt swap in the future but for now this set up is doing it.
