      Two questions. Where did you get your seats and what if any performance mods are you doing to your 5.9

        seat are corbeau racing , think I bought them from poly performance not sure since I originally had them in a different truck . the engine has mild cam , new heads , roller tip rockers , short tube headers , swapped out the barrel keg intake for edelbrock intake and will run fitech fuel injection

          Very nice work and I like the look of it. Hope your knee is healed and at 100%.

            Knocked out some dents on the radiator shell then got the opening lined up so I can turn the cap . Thinking I may frame out the grill and run some perforated but with bigger holes , what do you guys think

              ended up getting the holley sniper for Christmas so should have this thing running by the end of the month
              decided to outboard the lower coilover mounts a bit more that I originally had them and just about done with everything on the interior . Also found a good set of emblems for a decent price , although may go on my town wagon since that's what they were meant for

                  crazy how much tires change the look of the truck :D. didn't think they would work but they actually measured shorter than 42's so worked in my favor , just had to cut the bars off the tire carrier to get the spare to fit .

                    It is looking better every day, It excites me to get into the shop and work on my WDX.

                      thanks I appreciate that. Well plans have changed as far as leaving the body the way it is but ended up getting a new hood that fits much better only its a different color . now the plan is to get it blasted and painted we are leaning towards gray or blue possibly a matte color.

                      already been approached by a friend who is an editor for offroad magazine and wants to put it in a magazine :) . I know its not a true to form power wagon so if you guys have thoughts of the way the article should be directed let me know and I can pass it on
