We have a roller. Links are 98%, steering is plumbed in and bled, the engine fired up after 8 months on the first crank and the auto seems to be working correctly. I'm pretty happy.

Well the test drive went well on Friday. I didn't push it too hard and put about 5 miles on it. The full manual control of the auto is pretty sweet. I even threw the plates on ha ha.






Just a few little things to wrap up over the next few weeks.

Well Jambo 2017 is in the books and the Shakedown went better than expected.

All the new additions seem to be worth it. My wheeling buddy for the weekend.















Minimal carnage in the group for the weekend. Broken TRE



My buddy Mark on Dewoody

It was a pretty good time as usual.

Maybe I should hold off on taking my 14bolt over there for a while.
