    Since am working on the 80s cooling system after it's maiden trip 2 weeks ago, I took the 100 to death valley to hang out with these cool 80's. #GoodTimeOnly with @perrobravo (HDJ 81) and @Dan2722 (96 TYT)

    To panamint springs..

    I got another chance to get out and explore the parashant national monument in northern Arizona. This place is so remote and beautiful. I love the Grand Canyon country.

    Haha - I only did reverse pulling lightly, enough to get the roots visible so I could cut them wit the saw....agree forward for hard pulls for sure - learned that the hard way on my old 91'....

    Cool, I loved when I could take the 80 to work, instead of a company truck.

    Is there many canadian drilling rigs down that way now? I'm under the impression a lot of that has moved down to the US with the oil price/economy. The wife and I have even talked about going to texas for work.

    I see one chainsaw is a Stihl Farm Boss but what's the other red one? A Echo maybe?

    Finally fixed a courtesy light switch on the rear passenger door as my ten year-old can't understand closing the door "firmly" vs slamming it. Note if you ever do this, if you connect the switch to the wire behind the door pillar but don't mount the push part into the door it won't work. Needs to be bolted in to give it ground to the truck body. Don't ask how I know.

    Looks like a Milwaukee cordless saw.

    @RS6tofj80 I am curious how you like it? I have a Sthil as well but am going back and forth between the Dewalt or the Milwaukee cordless chainsaws.

    Took away our trucks, but I see it as an upgrade. I can stretch out without the seats in the back. No idea if they're displaced from the great white north. I see a lot of H&P Flex Rigs over the deeper S. TX gas plays

    A buddy of mine bought a wrecked truck that had a nice Alpine 2 din that he didn't need. Don't mind if I do for $50!

    Bought a 96 lx450 a month ago from @catfishhands. 96 lx450 with 168000 miles, 2.5" Dobinson lift, 37" cooper discovery pros, fn wheels. Might go down to 35s yet. Don't really need the 37s.
    0C4A3342-0DAF-4C07-860B-6E6791A25AD1(2).png So far it's been an interesting journey. Always have wanted an 80 after having grown up with them. The body and interior were kinda trashed so starting on that. I took the seats out to clean the carpets and this is what happened. Screenshot_20190110-125944_WhatsApp.jpg
    Guess now there's new carpet in the garage and new leather seat covers coming. Got the bumper installed yesterday 20190109_180315.jpg

    Keep the 37s. 35s aren't exactly DD friendly either if that's what you're after.

    I wish I went 37
