Pickup top definitely the thing for winter... Was almost warm in there.
Bring it to NOVA happy hour!

Installed a Cobra 75 wx st CB and tuned the Firestick CB antenna. I also lengthened the mic cord for the Yaesu 2m radio. I'm starting to see a light at the end of the restoration tunnel. 2" OME lift goes in Saturday and hopefully my LED headlights will show up for that wrenching party too.

Where did you mount the firestick? Do you still have the mounts on the wings?

I mounted it on my swing away tire carrier. I'll post up a picture tomorrow. On your truck you could mount a piece of angle iron to the rear crossmember and drill a hole for a fire ring mount avoiding drilling any holes in the body.

That has to be photoshopped, it's to clean.

Nice work!

I wasn't gonna say nuttin. Mine leaks at the oil pan. My experience with a couple 2.25s is… don't bother. This is a couple 20 years newer, but still. MSimilar with valve cover. It might work, but Its not high on my list. Just like the oil "hole" under an air cooled VW.. if its not leaking, its empty.

Good luck-

Well, I lost a little bit more than a pint since the last 100miles.
I guess the T-seals got worn during assembling.
But I'm not sure.

Nevertheless it's leaking again.
Out of the drain hole.
But less than befor!

Installed a 2" lift with my wrenching buddy help this morning. Now I have to help him with lifting his mondo sized Dodge truck.

Changed all my dash lights for LEDs and did the boomslang headlight loom upgrade, impressed with the outcome 👍

Greased up everything with a zirc or a grease boot.

Threw on 1 (one) rock slider/tree rub rail. They're a bit harder to do than my jeep ones.

I have an EX MOD. That means, my side skirt dealies are not the only thing in the way. The bottom of the jerry can lockers is in the way as well the locker door. Got out my trusty cut off wheel and zinged off the bottom. Riveted the now flat steel edge to the bottom of the locker to make up for cutting off the angles.

Lined up everything best I could and bolted it up. Rock solid.. though the paint flakes off with every contact with ground or metal. No scuffing, just flakes... I can see myself having to refinish them in a year or so.
I set them up so they stick out pretty far. the rub rail is just a touch past the eyebrows. Makes getting in and out a bit easier.

Really accentuates how much the bottom of the door doesn't line up with the body panels.


My portable drill bit the dust. Its the same light duty hitachi 18v that helped with the frame off resto on my sIII 88. Lots of hours spinning a wheel and drilling out rusted bolts and rivets. A bit too much dust and metal shavings in it and running it all day took its toll. Not bad for the "consumer" grade. But it means I need a new one before doing the right side.

Also went out to the local garden center and picked up a pallet (1.1 ton) of wood fuel pellets.
Loaded that thing down... Ran into Clem... he works there and drives an 87 exmod too. He came out to say hi. His is a bit prettier than mine... mine's a lot warmer than his (pickup cap vs canvas hood). Impressed with the suspension capacity on the truck. even loaded down it wasn't on bump stops at all. Almost had to throw it in low range to climb out of the parking lot... but the suspension was good.
