1) replaced 3yr old 20k mile Aframe ball joint (was full of water suspect this lead to early failure)
2) replaced 200tdi exhaust manifold to turbo gasket
3) repaired crack in rear door frame by middle hinge (due to failure of tub support for middle hinge that was repaired a week or so back)
4) installed new fuel tank

Think I am ready for the National Rally now....

Since I was at home in my driveway with air tools it wasn't bad. Would've been better if it hadn't failed so soon though! The one I put in three years ago was a Delphi and I installed a Lemphorder this go round.

Yep, doing 3in vband from the turbo flange back. Pipe will prob stick out 1/2-1/4 in or so.

Using two flex joints in the system and anchoring to the rear exhaust mount to keep the pipe from rattling in the port.


It's in the rear quarter above where the mud flap mount would be.

I've been running a turndown off the dump pipe for years after ripping off the system in the dirt

Thanks. Miss the fun of these type mods on my MOD truck. Now I hate to cut a hole and mess up a good NRP exhaust to do this

Mud UK rear speaker pods. Really nice quality and fitment. I put Dynamat behind the speaker.

swapped on a set of Wolf-reps in 16x6.5 with Cooper ST Maxx in 235/85/16.
Thanks to Atlantic British for Labor Day free shipping special. That made the decision to purchase these a little easier. And I like these Cooper tires; quiet on the highway. I'll give them a go on gravel/dirt tracks this coming weekend.
The 235 has me feeling it's easier to turn at low speed.

Now, I really like the look of the black wolf wheels.. it really changes the look of the truck.

While doing research on wolf wheels, there were posts about the nuts not threading through. On my '97 D90 with factory wheel studs, the nuts threaded all the threads. Here is a picture showing what they look like. I torque them to 110 ft-lbs.

White truck with black steel wheels is basically the best combo. Damn that looks good!!

Nice. Are those your only speakers? How does it sound?

Fresh gauges. Went for the speedometer with MPH and KMH. The truck was brought from Europe, would feel wrong to completely erase that.

After 20 yrs of dealing with water in the bottom of my compressor tank and the need to regularly drain it, I finally installed one of the automatic drains that cycles every time the compressor kicks off. Kind of a pain to turn the 80 gallon tank with compressor on top on its side for access but plumbing it up was straight forward enough. Its triggered by the pressure switch on the compressor head. Should make a huge difference in keeping the air supply dry. A small victory that I will be drinking to tonight.
