    Events/Trails Charouleau Gap 6/2/20 to test my new Yokohama’s!

    Awesome, I thought I knew your rig when I saw it in the pic. So, you finally swapped out the million mile muddies. You got your money out of those suckers.

    Great pace on that run! I can't remember, did you run the return trip with me from Turkey Creek back up Rug Road last time?

    Builds Another LS swap? Really???

    Brian, that was a big concern of mine, and the reason I removed the Surco rack that I am trying to sell. It clears by about 1.5 inches or 30mm. The 80 lives in the garage, and I really wanted the rack/awning on there, so I was relieved to see it fit.

    It came off a Rav4, so I am sure it would fit. You would need to adjust the load bars to the right width.

    Another post just because I need to keep it going. I was able to scoop up a Rhino Rack and 270 awning off another CSCer. I am very thankful for the great deal. I also ordered a pair of the shovel holders. After using a full size shovel while out with @D_Web, I realized it was another item I...

    Round 2: This time, I cut some blocks of wood so that I could wrap strips of 16ga aluminum around the fan to get the 3/8" gap. I used a metal cutting blade on my table saw to get the width right, and cut long strips. Then after hemming and hawing around for way too long on the purchase, I...

    I am a believer that mistakes are an opportunity to begin again, but more intelligently. My first attempt at a shroud, I used a Summit Racing shroud kit. I TIG welded the entire thing, and two things happened. 1. My clearance between the fan and the surround was way too generous. 2. My...

    The biggest item I have been hammering on is the install of the Ron Davis radiator I picked up just as the quarantine started. I was looking forward to seeing the operation when I went to Glendale to pick it up, but Mr. Covid denied me. This rad is beautiful, but for what they cost, they...

    I have also been swapping all the suspension bushings out as I go. Huge thanks to @GeoRoss for helping me with his labor, and the use of his bushing dies. Those bushings are freaking in there and have no desire to come out. It is all my Harbor Freight 20 Ton press can manage on a few. I dont...

    Next up was to install the new brakes that I have been holding in the parts cabinet for way too long. I was amazed at just how worn out the rear brakes were. While I was in there, I overhauled the parking brakes too. I will say this....WTF Toyota? That parking brake design is a...

    Been a while since I updated, so I'll give a go here. Work, life and other stuff has gotten in the way of spending quality time with my project, but now that the heat is here and my garage is an oven, I can finally get some time to spin wrenches. I started with determining the location of the...

    SOLD - Thank you! So, while digging around through my metal pile in the garage, I found a Piranha Fridge Slide I forgot I had. I need to move this on to someone who can put it to use. I have this in my 80 with the 1st iteration of the rear storage, and it fit my EvaCool 65qt Fridge and my 2...
