Purchased in Ouray, CO in September 2000 w/59k on clock
As of 10/22/04:
has gone through quite a bit of work since she was purchased. The tranny and transfer
case were laying in the back and she had not run in about 4 years. As of April
26, 2001, she was fully road ready for daily use. Krista has been enjoying driving
her to work and using her for some off road cruising too!

01 - Replace tail shaft on tranny and hub in t-case. Install tranny and t-case.
Round up shifting linkage that was missing. Perform general mechanical inspection.
Install new heater core, spark plugs, fuel, air and oil filters and oil. Install
1500 lb overload coils on the back. Runs ok, but t-case keeps shifting to nuetral.
Park her for now.

not tall enough. We don't have original hardware so we make shift something that
