start of cleaning up the accessorie wiring
Just looking at this makes my head hurt knowing Imma be in the same boat soon...
I have been holding off on doing it for a couple years. And finally decided to dive into it as all the random wires were pissing me off.
Got a bit more done on the wiring
New rad support built and installed. The pins had broke off the bottom of my relatively new rad rad so made a cradle to support the bottom of the radiator with rubber mounts.
Now I need to finish some wiring, build a new front bumper, fix the rear bumper and if there is time try and fix the evap system.
New deck and switch panel installed and working.
New winch is in and will be building the bumper this weekend
More bumper progress, but ran out of gas for the welder.
Shame you have to have those fender flares.
They aren't the nicest one. Would like to get the fiberglass flared ones, one day.
pics are broken for me. but assume you guys are talking about those long john flares right?
Bumper is done
Fix pix pls
Photo dump. Hope these ones work.
Starting another round of maintenance
On the list as of now.
Water pump and timing belt
Headers and cat delete
Repack wheel bearings
Check all u joints
And considering pulling the engine as the rear main is leaking a bit and thinking about preemptively changing the clutch.
Glad I pulled the transmission to check the clutch, it is definitely at the end of its life.
Yikes! No kidding it's a good thing you pulled it.
Out of curiosity, what did you use to mount the switches under the radio? Did you fabricate that? I was thinking about doing something similar on mine.
This is really a simple well put together sas. What is your overall width now?
Roughly 65" wms to wms
I am terrible at updating my build.
hopefully the triple pass will hold together.
Need to order front u-joints, spindle studs and front break calipers. Then I think I can out the front end back together and go for a test drive.
I really hope I did the clutch correctly as I have never done one before.
Got it out of the garage for a test drive, it seams to be working good.
what's the verdict ?
That's an impressive level of maintenance! Nice setup.
It seams to be driving good. Need to get a set of rear leafs and recenter the steering wheel. Then it should be good to go.
Just starting the full damage assessment from the last trip, I hit hard enough on the front passenger side to not only wreck the tire and wheel and put the track bar through the oil filter. But also snaped the ujoint and broke the splines off in the diff
