    I kicked but over the weekend along with the help from my friend. Got the tub swapped out and the jeep back to driving condition! Now I just have to paint the other grille, fenders and hood! Oh and paint the JEEP stamp white.

    Nice. You know that key slot is supposed to be aligned vertically, like a switch plate screw.

    I built a drag to use behind Snowshoe to groom the trails. Works awesome! Still have to add a brace to the tailgate chains and a small winch to raise and lower it.
