Happy Birthday to me.

Postby jhole7769 » Thu Dec 11, 2014 9:03 am

Well The Gecko is down for a while, I asked myself what I wanted for my birthday and the response i gave was a stretch kit. Ordered Genright rear corners and rock slides and the should be here in a week or so. Will have them powder coated before installing them. Already had the Currie bridge for my big rear and hope to order back half kit,gas tank after Christmas. After all that's installed a new front housing,steering repairs and RCV axles will be next. I got to install my new oil pan and oil pan skid also. for some reason I can't change my oil for some reason, Could I have jacked oil pan up in Hot Srings? YEP!! :lol: :lol: Got to get the Gecko ready for The FMC2015 Tour. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Don't forget to tighten your drive shaft bolts while you're working on it. :lol:

:lol: :lol: Well its been a long journey, a lot of things have happened in my life since last update. But the short story is the rear stretch is done. Had to buy a new front diff also, doing inner C gussets and axle tube sleeves right now. Hope to have it under the Jeep in a few days.
