I went to top up my transfer box and was surprised to find it full. I figured I may as well put air in the tires while I had it in the shop. The left rear had 15 psi in it. I was tempted to just add air, but I ended up putting a plug in it since I don't have a jack.

Added some Masai tree sliders, and in the process found some nasty rot on the outrigger/trailing arm brackets. (Previous owner slapped some sort of aluminum tape/epoxy on the area and waxoyled over it )

Removed the 37" tires on 15" steel wheels. Replaced them with 35X12.5R20 Trail Grapplers on 20" Kahns.

Road driving is about 100 times better.

Cut out the rusty center of my third brake light and welded in a new piece. I ditched the crappy, unreliable oem light in in the process and went with an led light. I like the minimalist look.

Prepping my replacement 200
Pulled the harmonic balancer and the internal key seat was blown apart and turned to dust.

That looks so good. I was just explaining this fix to another forum member at our last gathering. I hope he sees this... (you.. yes YOU )

Looks great - and it won't hold water and rust like the stock setup.

Ignition barrel and associated switchgear failed yesterday evening, no dash lights & the engine would fire but not stay running.
Fitted a new one this morning and normal service was resumed, not bad for 256,000 miles.

It's amazing how much those 3 or 4 little copper contacts control that entire machine...

Hey Sam

Love how it came out. Can you detail the light you used (model info, etc) and the welding process? Is the light encased in a metal housing?

Thanks in advance. Really clean and modern look

I laid the bar on a table and drew and outline around it so I could match it all up after cutting. Cut out the middle and welded in a 10" piece of 1-1/4" dom tubing. I just drilled a 5/16 hole for the wires and tapped 2 holes for the screws. The light is a led trailer marker light from autozone. It's super bright

Keep in mind if your chopping the right-side, I do have a solid-top version in case that suits you better:

I was thinking that it may provide a little bit of engine bay ventilation, but that solid version would definitely be a lot cleaner... Please bill and send me one, I'm sure you know the address by now..lol..
