      @janyyc tagged me on a classified add here. What a cool rig! Some of you might not visit the expedition build side so I thought I’d share the pictures here as well. Literally looks like an alucab or sort grafted onto an FRP top. Cut the top...

      QUAD HEADLIGHT CONVERSION Well fellas the round headlights are no more! Over the last few months I've been working on a quad headlight conversion. In my relentless pursuit of dumping money into this truck, I decided to try something different...

      It's been a bit since I posted so thought I'd throw this up. I got the new LED bulb from SUPERBRIGHTLEDS installed last night. It's crazy how something so insignificant can make such a difference. The green glow of "LIGHTS" on that switch...

      ‘Twas time to look at that rear brake and see what was happening. I expected broken springs or something out of wack. I found some leakage. Looks like it’s time to rebuild that rear axle. I think that explains the sticking. Cleaned...

      So I suppose another excuse to post a picture :flipoff2: When I was checking wheels for brake drag, the front was a little loose. As in wheel bearing loose. I went ahead in my lunch hour and popped the hub off, tightened it up a little...

      Always something. So I left my ARB compressor on inadvertently the other day. I always just turn on the lockers every few weeks. Well it won’t turn on now. I get the click from the relay, but no compressor kick on. If I put 12v to the...

      Absolutely! I’m only about 25minutes away from there. Definitely a couple of other things I’d like to try out there. Also, in Berthoud we like to stop at the Aussie Poke Pit Stop as well. Both places are aussie owners so it shouldn’t be too...

      Test fitting, 70th Anniversary front shifter console going in as well. Being a factory 60/40 front seat this one never had a console. As such there are no console mounting brackets. Few other things needed as well such as moving one of the RHS...

      The last few days has been building out FTE swap harness. Unichip with OEM Toyota plugs so it can simply be removed or installed by plugging in these two plugs. ECU wiring. Love this wire we found for projects like this. Everything...

      Thinking through this a bit... I'm unsure of how you can get 2 to 3 inches of play from the gearbox. Having rebuilt the one on my 40 (mechanically identical to our Troopy's) there's just no way you'd have that much play from the steering gearbox...

      There's 5 bananas on the scale right? I'd call this a 2 banana job on that scale. You're gonna need to unbolt/rebolt stuff. You'll need pullers for the TRE and the Pitman Arm connections (between my brother-in-law and I we have everything, but...

      Then I caught a bad case of "While I'm in here..." The power steering pump was leaking a bit all over the place... and I figured it'd get worse with the gearbox sealed up. Parts for a re-sealing: The pump had actually been sealed up at leak...
