    Made a few changes to the bumper today, added in more stiffeners and changed to lights so it does not look so jk-ish.

    Transmission is all back together and shifts great!

    Had a crappy time to make it shift at all, apparently all the manuals for this transmission leave out one key step, there is an indent ball that goes into the reverse shift head, all the manuals leave this step out, then the ax15 will shift into reverse but not disengage, locking the transmission.

    That's good to hear that you got it all back together and ready to go.... If you think about it... them forgetting to put that 1 minor detail out of the books is pretty smart on their part if you think about it... cause then the general consumer would be like WTF?!! and take it to the dealership or shop, and pay good money to have them tear it down and take care of that 1 step... and then charge you a crap ton of for it... It's a big scam!!!

    I know Steve and I'm blaming you for it! You failed to tell me about the missing step in the ax15 manual you sent me! Now it's all dirty and scratched!

    Thats handy info to now have floating around the internet ..

    While I was laying under Mort removing the horrible t-case linkage,

    I noticed some denting,

    Sure enough, right by the gas pedal on the tranny tunnel,

    Apparently Mort flexes a bit too much! Who knew!
    And what shall I do about this? Cut out the tranny tunnel, weld in some new steel? perhaps add some bumpstops?

    Or flex the crap out of Mort and let it clearance itself? Ya I like the last option too!

    Oh and here is a pic of the new Novak bracket in place.
