    Welcome aboard, Ken. Was good to meet you last Friday! Be sure to check out my original "HAMsters Unite" thread that I bumped as I know you were interested in getting your Ham Technician license. Take care,

    My 80 is a 1993, she just turned 250k miles. I have been busy the last couple months working on all the basics under the hood. The motor went through a complete rebuild about 2 years ago. Need to install the new water pump and thankfully that's the last thing on the list. Last Saturday was a complete rebuild of the front axle, what a messy job! OME lift and 315s and new HD tie rod and drag link with all new tie rod ends - thank you Marlin. Thinking about removing the front sway bar but can't decide. Next thing is a front winch bumper, I am looking for something used if anyone knows of one give me a shout. However I might just drop a winch plate and winch on the front and call it good.
    I am an avid outdoorsman and bow hunter and volunteer on a search and rescue team.
    I am really happy to join the club and look forward to getting to know everyone!

    I don't know what an original metal tech bumper even looks like but for 600 I am interested.
    Let me know when you can post a few pics.

    Thea's a really nice looking bumper but I am thinking more along the lines of a plate style bumper as opposed to the tube bumper look. However thanks for letting me know and I will let a couple other friends know what you have for sale. Thanks

    No problem at all. The PM covers the contact info for Gary @ W7 I O .org which manages the VE Testing. Just let him know when you're ready to test. In the meantime, don't stress out over the study involved; it's not that difficult to score a 74% on the Technical test just to get your license. After that, it's just learn what you want to maintain your interest.
