I did too much to list. However, adding windows to me soft top is an add on that I must note. I've killed some of the blind spots.

I'm totally digging the versatility of the ROW trucks. Truck cab has its advantages for sure.

On the new motor I had the flywheel machined, changed the pilot bushing, rear main seal and installed a new clutch and pressure plate in prep for the engine swap hopefully next weekend.

I am a slacker so I resemble that remark! My garage is exploding with parts and every project I do I get a little bit more floor space back.

I would live to put a 200 or 300tdi in my truck next year. My family in the UK could find me a engine for about 200-400£ in Leeds or Kent. The problem is finding a good importer to ship it here. The last tine I checked, It seemed that some importers were trying to push their engines on to me. I'll get one in a year or so.

Caledonian Blue or extremely close to that. I painted the cab portion and the color is just a little off from the main body (using LR paint codes)
