  1. Not sure why, but I added a snorkel. I did manage to get most of my firewood in and its still clicking along. I think lockers are next on the list. Any opinions on a lunchbox in the front for street driving?
  2. I like that I can get in tighter spaces with it then I can in my full-size.
  3. I gave it a quick Rustoleum spray bomb. Did it at night with just a beer box for masking. I think it helped even for a quick makeover. Eventually it will get grey raptorliner. Cut 4 loads of wood in 4 days. Guess it doesn't matter how it looks if it works. I did manage to break a motor mount skidding logs. Now I'm waiting on ups for some cheap replacements for now. I plan on buying some bombproof ones when I swap the motor. That will be spring hopefully. Old mounts lasted over 30 years. If I can get the winter out of some cheap ones I will be happy.
  4. Got the winch installed. Straightened the rear quarter a bit more. I remember why I am not a body man. Went and cut a load of firewood.
  5. I realize it seems overkill. I plan on mounting my high-lift, chainsaw, axe, and a shovel to it. So I figured it needs to be sturdy. I had a couple 50 inch light bars already. I had ordered cab mounts but was sent ones for a curved light. So then I ordered a curved light and was sent another straight one. Got tired of getting wrong stuff so made due with what was on hand. Ha.
  6. I did throw together a headache rack. Not sure
  7. That is a great idea. Thanks can't believe I didn't look at that.
  8. I used the factory bumper brackets for the rear. I hope they are strong enough. I don't plan on pulling anything heavier than my Rhino or a couple quads so it should be fine. Had to get creative to pull the dent below the taillight. Used winch on wifes jeep to pull it out. The knock off bumper kit I purchased took a little extra tweaking. One part must have shifted when getting cut out. Not a huge deal but it did take a little work to make fit. Still worth it in my opinion for under $150. Guess I need to order a winch now.
  9. Its a 51. It has a 350/th350 and a nova subframe previous owner started. I think I'm starting over. Picked up an s10 chassis and have a 5.3/4l60 for it. It has a couple projects ahead of it at the moment.
  10. Started on some bumpers. Ran out of welding wire so had to call it quits till next weekend.
  11. Well I put some bfg ko2s on it that I had. Drives pretty decent. Springs are a little soft for hauling much. I guess that means I just have to make more trips. It rides pretty smooth. Don't have a lot of clearance with the factory flares. I ended up replacing the fuel tank and pump. Its much happier now.
  12. Well, been getting little things done. It got a new header panel. Still needs some tweaking. Waiting on ups for front bumper. I ordered the same kit that I used on the red jeep. Debating on a hoop or a small stinger. I already have an extra hoop but kinda want to mix it up. I drained the gas tank and put a fresh tank of non ethanol 92 octane in it with some seafoam. It seemed to run great for about 20 miles.. I'm pretty sure the filter is plugged already as the one I took off had a bit of fine rust in it. Wish I would have dropped the tank when I had the axle out now. The fuel
  13. Yes the wheels are 5 on 5. I don't remember what brand these adapters are. I bought them on Amazon. Haven't driven it at highway speed yet. Still doing some adjustments. I have the G2 adapters on my wifes xj with Rubicon take offs and it is fine on the highway. I think the biggest thing on spacers is to make sure they are hub centric. Not lug centric.
  14. Got the brake hose installed and brakes bled. It amazes me how much nicer the R.E. springs ride compared to the wifes jeep with a trail master lift.
  15. Good to know. Thanks for the input. Time to do some more research.
