First I need more clearance, so I got the 3.5” rough country suspension lift and 1.25” body lift, and the first ride to Choccoloco mountain!

Thanks to TJ Todd and Adam we know where the motor is mounting! Just need to pick up my new(er) transmission and it’s ready for final welding and install! REALLY hoping Kenny will be running by Halloween!  (But we know how time frames work)

Got my new transmission in today and converted it to 4x4 with the Novak adapter kit, ready to hook it up! (Kenny’s first time being useful in a year and a half and it was for being a work bench) 🤦🏻‍♂️

Got the control arm and rear track bar brackets welded on, just need to finish up coil buckets and shock mounts and Kenny will officially be 8” longer
