Really have to update this thing more often so I'm just doing photo dumps every few months!
Anyway whats gong on,, I had a small drip since I got the cruiser ended up being the oil pump seal, did that and did the front main while I was in there and of course pinched it or something installing it so I ended up with an even bigger oil leak lol Also why the Phillips head on the pump cover
Went on a good wheeling trip up in NH, Trashed another drive shaft! I really need to get a DC
Kept climbing the damn tree I swear I thought I was going lol
I really tried to be careful with this one! I honestly don't know when it happened all I know is we went to make a beer run at the end of the day and as soon as I get over mph the whole truck started to shake and well ..
Went on our week long trip again thru the Northeast! Great trip again full of good wheeling, trail fixes, good food and well lots of good stuff. I wasn't able to bring any of the good cameras so I did take many pics. But here's some random ones of the weeks extravaganza..
Just some leisurely welding in tractor supply parking lot, nothing to see here..
On to more relevant things now, I picked up one of those sweet Italian leather steering wheel kits from here on Mudd because mine was behind whooped! Took me a couple of days and I damn near had blisters on my lady fingers, they were raw man seriesly. Word to the wise, wear gloves or a thimble or something seriously! Anyways I'm no pro but I'm happy with the outcome!
Then I started chopping the truck in prep for new tires. I wanted to open up the fenders so that meant cutting most of the tube work off. I honestly wasn't 100% happy with it anyways. Oh well what's another $2k down the drain..
Also I finally got around to installing my new winch! I got a great deal on a new Superwinch exp 12K, This things way beefier and the old super winch I had. It's a tight fit but it's in there! I ended up having to cut the middle of the cross brace and notch the lower part of the grill a bit.
