It's just really hard to find a lone tire of a given size and brand that has the same or similar level of wear as the other tires on your truck.

Hows cash on hand? I noticed soliciting for cash donations has fallen off...

Now, I wouldn't call it "unscathed"...that was the same trail I broke a diff on last year (ironically also in a downpour rain storm)! I just made it through ok on THAT trip - but it certainly had it's fun with me previously.

Let's say 5pm on.

Bill, you are correct, but it was the last thing we were going to do until we ruled out other issues. The difference is obvious in retrospect, but...

It would be awesome if we had a decent turnout. It would make Sunday doable instead of a mad rush. I have a busy day/night today but will try make a complete TODO list so you can see what we are facing.

The name Brooks does sound vaguely familiar...

A big thanks to Pendy, SafariHP, and Lucky8 for parts shipments!

Ok, here is the current punch out list
  • install springs and shocks
  • install longer bolts that hold a-arm to frame
  • install fuel pickup/sender and hookup fuel lines at rear
  • make hard brake line for front right side
  • hook up soft brake lines
  • hook up last bits of heater hose
  • paint and install coolant reservoir, fill coolant
  • install fan shroud
  • make pcv catch can
  • wire up alternator and distributor
  • check/set timing (static)
  • try start it
  • make sure diffs are drained of any water and refill with oil
  • check fluids in LT230 and LT77 (or Ron pls confirm)
  • install seat box
  • install seats
  • install tunnel cover and floor boards
  • take to exhaust shop to get exhaust mod made to clear crossmember by header
  • check/tighten suspension bolts and tighten drag link nut.
  • install cotter pins on all nuts requiring them
  • install driveshafts


And stuff we need to wait on parts for
  • install left rear brake wheel cylinder and then hub and drum.
  • bleed brakes
  • install bumper when we get bolts
  • install front grill

And non-critical, nice to have stuff
  • check wiring for headlights etc.
  • re-cover tuffy console pad
  • install tuffy console
  • check alignment (tape measure) and see why there is play in steering box
  • top coat bumper with extreme chassis black (POR15 isn't UV stable)

Crap, things are not looking good.

We can't install the springs and shocks because Kent has the spring perches (haven't gotten the ones we were waiting on so are painting the old).

The connectors I bought from FedHill are not matching the soft brake lines. Bill, I bought the british/girling stuff, P4-3 female nuts and they don't fit the soft lines. Can you confirm these are the kind I should have bought?

Still lots to do though. See the video feed for Tyler and I in action.

Ha, you'd be wrong then! I blew out a pair of flip flops last weekend and don't want to get my last "good" pair dirty so I am wearing my old steel toe'd shoes from the army.
