  • Rotated the rubber
  • changed oil
  • checked knuckle studs
  • retorqued wheel spacers
  • greased birfs (gun-drilled axles are awesome)
  • reinstalled 1" rear spacer
  • admired the new carpet
  • forgot to take a picture of the new carpet
  • moved the gas pedal 1" up and 1" out - It was hitting the new carpet and only giving me 40% throttle
  • went wheeling
  • didn't overheat even with the AC on
  • holy s*** my engine bay gets hot on the trail though
  • slithered over several rocks
  • realized I probably still want a buggy as well as my 80
  • realized I still have an issue with my tune
  • broke the truck
  • got towed off the top of a mountain by a Jeep
  • smoked the brakes riding them for 6 miles out of the bush
  • managed to get the truck running for 5 min to clear the gatekeeper
  • got towed to the parking lot by the same Jeep (more tears)
  • got running and drove home
  • broke down on the interstate
  • fixed the breakdown with a hammer like a real man
  • washed the truck
  • realized it's unlikely my wife will ever come wheeling with me again.
  • ordered many new parts from PartSouq
  • hid the credit card receipts

Sits a lot better with the spacers reinstalled

Largely because of all the junk in my trunk

Wife managed to get some great pics of me going up Timber Tamer at Walker ORV park. I only managed to get this one. If I'd driven 4 more feet I'd have been at full pretzel which would have been a much better picture, but I was too lazy to get back out of the truck. I'll have to get the better pics from my wife when she's talking to me again.

North lookout at walker, minutes before my fuel pump peaced out.

Now you can freak out about your water temps just like us OBDII people. 😜
I do find that my OBDII temp varies sometimes significantly from my return temp - particularly when sitting in traffic. Not uncommon to see 193 on the scan gauge and 200 on the return side.

Installed the koso temp gauge on my 94.
Cut the upper rad hose instead of taping the outlet pipe.
Do you need to add clamps or something on those so water doesn't leak?

Yes, sorry about that, that photo I took was before the hose clamps.
To be honest the hose clamps just introduce 2 additional weak links in my mind.
There is a much more elegant method where you tap the hard pipe. It is described in the thread below.

Added a bunch of new stuff;
brake master cylinder, brake booster, LSPV, VC120 charcoal canister, new canister hoses, TPS, EGR modulator and gas cap.
Also repaired a broken wire in my homemade Supercharger IAC / TPS jumper harness, due to a P0120 code and finally added the proper sub tank sticker after 13 years.

The charcoal canister failed and caused the dreaded split in my fuel tank. AutoZone warrantied the canister and gave me a new one.

Next to drop the tank and get it repaired.

Nice work! Sorry to hear about the tank issue. That’s a pain for sure.

More mountainside meanderings. WNC and TN this time. Spent 2 nights on the Appalachian trail without ever lacing up my boots. Hooked up a group of hikers with some water and one lucky couple with sausage biscuits Sunday am.

This is why I vent to atmosphere. I don't want to replace a gas tank anytime soon.

You bring all that ship camping?
Yup. Camping, not roughing it.
Everything under the platform is permanent stock for the truck and only had the 4 front runner boxes, one of which was empty. Food, fishing gear, camp/kitchen acc.
