I bought a UK spec rear step bumper from JRose609. It used to look like this;



Had a receiver hitch fabbed in. Note: Pin now goes through the housing and the receiver hitch, and the lower support bracket mounts had to be relocated.





Gave it some paint (will be blasted & powder coated at a later date)





Much better!

Mounted the ipad. After looking and reading for way too long, I took the cheap way out and grabbed to arkon from amazon for $23. It is nicer than I expected and I just ground and chamfered the fork mount and slid it in the seat rail under the factory seat bolt.

Arkon Seat Rail Floor Car Truck Mount with 18 inch Gooseneck for iPad Air iPad 2 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 by Arkon http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00585CLSQ/..._eNIBtb1RENM9Z


I have had the arkon phone mount as a cheap temporary option for over a year now and have been really happy with it.

Mounted my winch yesterday. 12' of cable was the perfect amount for me. I routed it from the passenger side frame rail, over trans/under the air box, and to the battery box. Anyone have a source for the rubber boots that cover the three power cables on the winch?

Not sure if this is the right diameter for your cables, but it's a start: http://www.amazon.com/Taylor-Cable-2...HPPT20MBHVT5SZ

Those look like they are for the actual battery. The ones I need go on the winch. The originals were dry rotted and fell apart.

Finally replaced turn signal stalk to fix the shorted-out horn switch.
About time (been sans horn for nearly a year) and an due for an annual state inspection sticker.

FWIW, later model ROW column stalks and the mounting plates are slightly different. I'm talking very small differences here, but the way the turn/wiper stalks mount are slightly different and although can be easily modified, are not a direct match.

If you're ordering the part from a supplier it's worth noting. Also, if you're running a "bitsa" truck like many of use ROW guys are (parts spanning 20 years on our trucks) everything needs to be investigated before ordering stuff.

I grabbed a deal on an entire turn stalk/light switch assembly over a year ago on this board, so I didn't mind fighting with it a bit to get it to work, but if I had ordered a brand new part, It would be a different story.

Replaced the steering arm ball joint on my 84 RHD 110, and also noticed that my 4" lift is still using the stock pan hard rod. Next project is installing newly purchased RTE adjustable pan hard rod.

Did this too mine too (eh sorta) and it solved a ton of problems...really just connected and tested it, been wrestling with the steering wheel trying to get it off, did you use a steering wheel puller? The one I have didn't have the right bolts to thread into the steering wheel...

I just unbolted it and put some welly into it.....one aggressive pull with my hands sent the lockwasher straight to my neck where it fell down my shirt.
Absolute professional for sure

Leave the nut on but loose, better than smacking yourself in the face with the steering wheel.

I had such a time getting my steering wheel off. After 2 different pullers, lubes, hammer blows, wiggling and hours of trying..I was wishing for a smack in the face from that thing!

There was nothing more frustrating than having a steering wheel be the only thing keeping me from loading that bulkhead in my car.

Take off the steering column shroud then put on a large gear puller set on it and ever so gently start wrenching the puller and it will come right off. Trick with the gear puller is getting the feet(?) on solid material so as to not tear the foam material. Easy peezy.

I have always managed to get them off with a rubber mallet after some kroil or similar treatment. I smother them with copper antisieze when I put them back on

It's funny, I overthink and overengineer stuff all the time and when it comes to something so basic like this, the obvious solution completely evades me.

the rubber mallet is another obvious solution, but noooooo! I have to use muscle the thing off.

Don't feel bad. One of my favorite sayings is "common sense isn't that common". I spent about ten minutes "relaxing" in my front seat when I muscled my steering wheel off my first car as a kid.
