ohhhhh yeah she does and actually better than before. No more cutting out and missing real bad.  I can now put a gm module and coil in my parts bag for spare and not a 300 igniter.

got the radio working after the last trip blew out my igniter and took out my radio too.  I found out why.  the bat cables were jumping on and off the battery and shorting out and I could not see the problem because of the battery box.  Im going to put shims in the battery cable ends and make sure they are really tight.  I also got some rock lights moved around the last trip I ripped off two of my lights.

I got half of the back up camera done last night the screen is installed  :pimp:  pics up soon.  I am going to put it so that I can see the rocks if i have to back up in my blind spots.  As much gear as I always carry there will be a few.   :beer:  :rofl2:

ok i made some new spring packs and when i put them on the shackles in the back the shackles snapped up to the top leaf.  so now basically the bottom spring pack is connected to the shackle that is touching the top 1/4 spring.  there is no more use of the shackle.  what can i expect to happen if i keep this like this for one trip?  It flex's out ok I was just wondering if it is bad for the shackles if i should just make some longer ones??  Because i like the flex that i got from the pack i made.

Honestly, I thought this thing looked kinda goofy in the pictures on here. After seeing it in person at moonrocks I changed mind, this is one sweet little buggy!

rear leaf springs were a (FAIL) I need to get rid of the buggy set up with the half leaf spring thing.  Im going to do a rear shackle mount off of the rear of the frame.  I am going to use some chevy s10 springs with some long shackles.  I will check the length and see if they are going to work as a pack or if I have to build them.  I will also be adding shocks to my rear springs.  No shocks = bad wheel hop and crazy pinion angle twist.  The rear camera worked but the screen was cracked during storage.  carb worked ok and the new ignition system worked awesome.
