    Where do we go from here? To replace my LX or not?

    Well, why didn’t you say so? that makes this a lot easier! Keep this truck, buy a rust free 100 and a 2010-ish 200, and then accessorize the new additions—and you’ll still be out less than a new 200. but seriously..... Keep looking! Mine needed nothing except some paintless dent repair to...

    Where do we go from here? To replace my LX or not?

    How much of the mods on this could you swap onto a new (to you) low-rust rig? If you could overlap the two rigs for a month or so, you could un-mod the current rig and greatly cut your losses, no? I got very lucky after a year of looking and got a super rust-free and relatively low mileage...

    Dual Battery, Redarc charger, and Aux Fuse Panel Install

    They recommend there or inside the vehicle--most of the engine bay is going to be too hot. With optimum function below 130F, even this spot might not be cool enough on a slow trail day somewhere warm. . .

    Dual Battery, Redarc charger, and Aux Fuse Panel Install

    It’s never felt terribly hot, but it’s got to be at least a bit warmer than ambient temp, so, yeah, the cooler the mounting location the better.

    Sure! Trail tailor hidden winch mount and a 12.5k Comeup winch with no frills—steel cable and old fashioned wire controller....I’m an infrequent wincher and figured steel cable is probably better suited to long-ish periods of disuse.... The other normally hidden item is a REDARC charger for our...

    Replacing Hub Assembly

    When you do this, If there’s play, be sure to look at the inner and outer tie rod ends—these can also be a source of play when grabbing at 3 and 9 o’clock. Bad/loose wheel bearings will result in equal amounts of wiggle regardless of where you grab the wheel. If play is only at 12/6, you’ve...

    Dual Battery, Redarc charger, and Aux Fuse Panel Install

    Got the new REDARC mount today and promptly mounted it up. To the best of my knowledge I’m the 2nd person in the US to put one of these in a 100, and it’s a great fit. old homemade mount is pictured above—here’s the new one—it’s a pretty elegant solution...

    ASFIR Skid plates and front bumper

    Great thoughts. Could you make it even easier by converting two of the four front bolt holes to slots (like on the stock front "skid plate"), which allows you to leave two bolts in place and then slide the skid up to them and be suspended from them while you put in the rear hardware? edit—just...

    Front Drive Shaft / Differential leak; Oil Seal & dust cover replacement

    Thanks! When I realized I'd pushed my first replacement seal in too far, I used a Lisle seal puller with a screwdriver across the axle tube to act as a fulcrum for it, but I think I still bogered up the part of the seal that sticks out. Or maybe I got sloppy putting the axle back in and...

    Front Drive Shaft / Differential leak; Oil Seal & dust cover replacement

    So I just replaced my driver's side seal today (again--I just put a new one in when I put in my rebuilt front diff, but apparently screwed it up by driving it in too far [I assumed it would sit against a shoulder . . . ] and then trying to get it back out). No telling yet if this one will...

    What have you done to your 100 Series this week?

    Replaced the driver’s side axle seal....which I just replaced but apparently got whopper-jawed or damaged in the process of putting it in too far and then trying to pull it out without hurting it.... Getting pretty good at pulling the knuckle and axles... Hoping this one is leak free!
