    Got it running today :thumbsup: full tune up, clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder. Drove it around the yard/woods some. 4WD works great. It knocks a little and has low oil pressure. Probably get the motor rebuilt within the next month probably mid july.

    Started tearing out the motor today, probably have it out by wed. or so. While it's getting rebuilt i'll probably go ahead and have the tranny looked over and start rebuilding the front and rear axles, new seals and whatnot. Gonna go ahead and rip the carpet out and either herculine it or put in a rubber mat.

    Love it dude. Looks like the pinion seal may be going.

    Don't bother dovetailing the bed; just pull the bedsides off and go ahead to tube. You can tie it to your exo-cage later when you get to that point ;)

    :D

    I couldn't tell if the axles were leaking or not, but the pinion and t-case sure as hell seem to be.

    Looking forward to seeing where you go with it man. Hope to pick up something similar myself in a year or two.
