    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.
