Phase I is done. I wheeled the rig on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. It performed even better than we had any reason to hope. Not only did it perform perfectly at crawling speeds, it was completely well-mannered at 30-40 mph on the logging roads. The BFG KM2s were superb.
Phase II will start about the first of the year. That phase is removing the old body, which is filled with Bondo and replacing it with the "new" body. We will be putting on tube fenders front and rear as well as setting it up to use the heater which came with the new tub. We also will build a new cage which will allow for the installation of the half-doors and the soft top. Before May when I go to Moab, it will have a new paint job.
