cleaned and painted the transfer-case, inching ever closer to the big day. probably keep it stock and wired until an FJ t-case shows up...







I caved and gave up on trying to fit the over-sized fancy Zeon enclosure.

probably re-do the mounting bracket but i'm pretty happy with the fitment.



just about out of space

Nope, didn't touch it. In retrospect, I probably should have, but that wasen't part of the agreement.
