Not a Ram! It is a Rampage

Yeah, the transaxle has been chained to the cherry picker for a nearly two weeks now, waiting for me to get down there and pull the axles/dump the transaxle oil (hopefully into a tub instead of all over my concrete) . . . .

Then, in order to get the new IC heat exchanger to fit, the nose cone/front fascia has to come off. That long heat exchanger can't get past the center core support when I try to slide it in from the engine bay side. But, that's OK since I've got an aluminum bumper off of a Shelby Charger to replace the steel one that came with the Rampage so that's a good reason to pull the nose cone anyway.

So, yeah, getting up and down is a PITA. A lift would be nice. I've got one stored at a neighbor's house - another project.

Maybe an exercise program is in order . . . . . ..

No doubt. Fun bit of info there, I had no idea the Shelby model came with an Aluminum bumper.
