    12/21 Wheeling ... Anyone interested?

    Figured I would start the monthly thread to see if anyone is interested in getting out in December? Open to either Rausch or AOAA. I met another local Cruiser enthusiast this week and am hoping he can come along for his first time on the trails. Might be the last chance to get out before snow...

    Getting into replacing my alternator and lowering the radiator back to factory spec since doing the 1" body lift. All going fairly smoothly until I tried to disconnect the alternator clip to the wiring harness and the tab seems to be broken off. Anyone know the best removal strategy and is there...

    Broken Front Sway Bar Mount

    So I noticed some odd sounds last time I was out wheeling (5/11), but I was unable to isolate what it was or where it was coming from exactly. It was the first time out since doing the head gasket so I was much more focused on temps and no leaks. Anyway, after a quick drive on the highway today...

    Pin-7 Mod Help

    I've watched the YouTube video, read a few threads and followed the Slee directions and installed the CDL switch in the dash. I also got into the kick panel and and located the the proper wire for the Pin-7 Mod. That is where I found a hitch ... the black wire with the red stripe (Pin-6) was...

    Just another blown Head Gasket

    Thought I had dodged this last year when the cammo truck was showing signs of being hot on occasion. The PO had definitely put Bars Stop Leak in the system before I purchased it. Cleaned that out as best I could and then ran straight water for a while, then did Blue Devil sealer and all was well...

    Andriod Maps App

    So I swapped phones this past year and I'm trying to download Maplets again. Not supported in play store and when I go through Amazon it just tells me I've already purchased it and doesn't offer to purchase again. Anyone know how to get this app now for Andriod?

    Water pump symptoms?

    So the 97 Cruiser is finally back from the suspension shop and I have been putting miles on it. Went to use the heat for the first time in a while and got nothing. Was running the ScanGauge while driving and seeing temps fluctuate a lot more than normal. Truck is usually 186*-195*F all day with...

    80s with 35's - 37's suspension question

    I finally got what I thought was all the parts needed for my 3.5:F - 3"R Dobinson's install and 37s, but now having an issue that I need some direction on. The steering arm (I think that's the proper name) is hitting the radius arms on both sides. Can anyone offer a solution? It's severely...

    Help with wheel wobble

    So after recently completing my knuckle rebuild, then going back a few days later and resetting the pre-load to 30 ft-lbs I'm having an issue with what feels like an unbalanced tire at speed. It usually happens above 65mph and will occasionally smooth out close to 75mph. It seems to be worse...

    PO306 Code

    Trying to finish up the baselining on the cruiser and thought I was just about done, but now I have a PO306 code. Truck is running rough at idle, but seems to be fine at rpm above 2k. It doesn't stall, but seems close. Also seems worse when the truck is started cold vs warm restarts. This...

    Diff Drain Issue & Other Knuckle Drama

    So I finally worked up the courage to begin attempting the knuckle rebuild today on the Cruiser. Step 1 ... drain the diff oil. Took heed and made sure to loosen the fill plug first. No problem there. Step 2 drain the fluid ... problem. Can't get the socket (tried 2 different ones) on the...

    Body Lift Steering & Radiator Drop Questions

    So after doing the 1" 4Crawler body lift it seems I have 2 small issues ... maybe 3. 1. I'm getting a bit of vibration through the steering wheel now, not a lot, but enough to notice it. It's not wheel shake since I can feel it when sitting still. I happens when put into gear and leaves when...

    For 60 Series Owners ...

    So while making deliveries yesterday in my 80, I had a guy ask me if I needed a front bumper. I've been riding without one for almost a year, but finally have one to install. He was from Pleasant View Auto Sales in Red Lion, PA. Apparently, the owner is a 60 Series fan and they had 2 or 3 60...

    So ..... Tech Day?

    So I'm trying hard to get prep done for the upcoming wheeling season and am feeling overwhelmed a bit. I need to install my 1" body lift before I can mount the sliders. This means pulling the radiator, so while in there I should address several other things: 1. Radiator and hose swap 2. Find...

    What to bring when wheeling @ Rausch

    So after having my first wheeling trip with the Keystone Cruisers I quickly realized just how unprepared I was for the event. I wanted to ask the more experienced members to help me form a list of essentials needed before heading back out. It may be even more helpful to break it down into...

    Hose next to the PHH

    So the other day I'm out in the 97 Cruiser and I hop out and leave it running. I come back and notice a small 4" puddle and see a drip. The AC isn't connected atm, so no condenser drip. I figure I didn't get the PHH connector tightened down enough and it was leaking so as much as it hurt my...

    Oil Cooler Hookup?

    So I finally got the radiator out of the 97 LX450 today and have enough room to look around at things a bit better. I have oil caked everywhere from the alternator down ... maybe 1/8" thick ... it's a LOT of oil. When I looked at the radiator initially, I found 2 hard lines that had no hoses...
