      Couple small additions this week. While I'm still working on the doors and running the tube doors I needed some side mirrors. For a pretty small price I added some UTV mirrors that had tube clamp mounts. Made for a 5 min install. Not for...

      With the exception of the doors the wrap is done. For my first time wrapping a vehicle I'm pretty happy with the outcome. I'm definitely no pro and there are some imperfections. I also didn't worry about fixing every dent in the body so there...

      Little more progress. Did some basic bodywork just to clean up the weld seam from the bob. There are still a decent number of small dents in the bed but I'm not too worried about them at this point since this will be used in the rocks. So it's...

      Marlin has a lot of info on the trans. Transmission Gear Ratio Chart | Marlin Crawler, Inc. - https://www.marlincrawler.com/tech/transmission/transmission-gear-ratio-chart Should be a W56-B (Marlin's classification system, but it seems to be...

      The other update is the rear bumper. This was a "make-it-up-as-you-go" design. I just built it from whatever steel I had on hand. Main bumper is 3x4" rec tube. Wings and center section are 3/16". DOM corner guards. Full 1" thick recovery...

      You’re welcome! Shoot me a PM for the mirror. As far as the shifter bushings, no need to drop the trans, just have to take the center console out to access the top of the transmission. I went off a YouTube video. Fairly easy Saturday morning...

      Thanks for sharing! I ordered a resistor from 22RE Performance. I also ordered a switch, just in case. Can the bushings and shift kit be installed without removing the transmission? How do I figure out which transmission I have? Thanks for...

      For your AC, you need a blower motor resistor 88635-89103. Double check that number with your local parts department, there was a couple of variations if I remember right. Real easy to replace. For the shifter bushings, it’s a little more money...

      You're welcome, happy to be of service. Purdy rig you got there. Cal weather probably had a lot to do with that. GL!

      I got a couple hours of breathing room today and finished the sliders for Dingo. Headed to powder tomorrow. 104# a side... Bulletproof monsters. These are 20" longer than regular 60 series. 2" x .188" DOM outer rails too. J

      Thanks. I feel it has to be some kind of add-a-leaf.

      Probably an add-on. I've never seen a spring like that on any mini I've owned (lost count) or worked on. Here's my '88:

      That's exactly the carpet that's in the truck now. Be forewarned it doesn't look like that when you remove it from the box. It's not preformed or cut to size at all. One big flat piece of carpet and a heel pad attached. I guess I was wrong on the...

      Agree. I've run them on three different trucks. Mostly back in the day with s***tybilt was the only option. Now, we have choices.

      I really hate this bumper. Would like to replace it with a marlin-style tube bumper.

      I can't get enough of this truck, but it needs some engine work. Went to adjust the idle, but it's not connected to anything. LOL

      Can anyone help me identify these springs? Is that an "add-a-leaf" under the stock springs?
