    I don't know yet. I'll get the final bill on Monday. I did do the anything scout LS Swap kit. The builder said he was extremely impressed with how easy everything went together. I really didn't want to spend the extra 2800 but it will look stock with him being able to use the scouts trans shifter and 4wd shifter.

    Looks great man. I have to assume you got new vinyl and fabric for those seats and door covers. Did you get it from SMS?

    Yes I got the plaid from SMS. It was $100/yd. On The vinyl, I picked something out that my upholstery guy could get.

    We'll see in 3 days. The 8th is her birthday. Last week was rough. May need some brownie points after that.

    The old calipers gave out last night. He installed new ones today. But the motor threw 2 codes That put the motor in limp mode. He thinks the loss of brake pressure cause the codes. He is trying to figure it out now. Supposed to pick it up in the morning.
