Installed 4 new jump seats.



Of course, the old holes didn't line up with the new.

SUCCESS!!

I've had the new (Woody at the Wedge Shop) 4.6 installed for a couple of weekends now, but somehow hadn't found time to plug in all the wires / cables / fill the oil lines and cooler.

Well, I managed to get all those things done on Saturday...was satisfied - thanks to Mr. VDO - that there was oil pressure on cranking - plugs out / no power to the fuel pump.

Fired right off, ran for twenty minutes ... we're still searching for the bone-head who forgot to tighten the lower rad hose clamp...ran a hundred miles or so gently on Sunday and all is well

Just in time for winter boooo salt.


Thanks - K

I dig it. It looks more angled with the front bumper extensions for the intercooler/td5 air-conditioned slam panel, but that's really just a photo angle issue. In person it doesn't look as far away as shots like this one make it seem.

All of this truck needs to get dirtier.

Installed an LED strip light around the interior roof line of my Ninety and wired it to the dome light switch (by driver's knee). Provides a lot more light in the rear, but I still think I want some directional lights in the front that a passenger could turn on as needed.
