Default Project Lunacy starts again

Well, here is the start of the project I call pure lunacy, again. I just got it home...

here are some pics







it is a 1991 with a red interior, 4.0, Rough country 3" suspension lift, no body lift yet, 32x11.5x15 tires, nice 15 aluminum rims...too cold to check it out completely, but it is solid, I do know that. All I have to do is rplace the manual tranny...which I have the replacement for it and there is a busted leaf which I also have. Not bad for 700 and he through in another BW1354 manual Tcase.
