Underdesigned? With that ultra low gearing coupled with lockers and oversized MTs, how much additional torque are we asking that stock $100 shaft to accommodate? 2-3x? Sounds like a problem for our local Ed to solve!

Wow! that's fortunate. The prior owner experience was different. It tc completely grenaded. Shit was so bound up we ended up pulling both shafts and I towed him off the trail with a couple tree straps.

Terrifying cutting into my Ashcroft console! But it came out pretty well. Things are finishing up pretty nice now.

LED SIDE LIGHTS

So I mounted the side light LED's - Baja Design small LED's from ASH.

Awesome little beasts they are! Throw a PERFECT pattern for illumination on the side of the truck. Very easy to install, look great and perfect for what I wanted them for. Highly recommended - they are great. They don't come with any wiring, switches, loom or anything - and you have to put the male plug attachment together - easy as easy gets...so a harness is all you need, plus a switch. I found them very good.

Thanks Ash!

Did the garrison outfitters window felt upgrade. Total pain in the ass and pretty messy, but hopefully worth it. No more window rattle.

Sorry to hear that was your experience, you'll find it flawless installed properly. One of the better upgrades!

It's a surprise that they don't supply the double sided sticky to seal the window back to the body. They make a point of providing everything else.

I replaced the felt in mine for about $5 for both sides ... I guess il have to do it in another 15 years ...

Got this from Lucky8, need to pick up new hardware tomorrow. My old bolts looked so crappy I couldn't bear to put it together with them.

Iit was only a mess because my old felts were decomposing and created a soupy dirty mess. Overall, a great upgrade. The garrison kit is excellent. Happy I completed it.

I've just learned that my gearbox leaked out all the oil but it's fine. We're currently sorting that issue. Also, I just brought a kayak carrier to transport my kayak. I'm going to try to figure how to install it as soon as it arrives.

Changed the Injection pump head o-ring using the dieselgeeks kit.

Cleaned the air filter.

Fixed the cover on the center console (again)

Cleaned out all the crap from inside.

Add a longer wire for my glowplugs so that it isn't stretched out like it was.

Confirmed glowplugs 1 and 3 DOA

Adjusted boost aneroid fueling pin back to 12 degrees in the hopes of improving economy and thinning the black cloud.

Added nuts to all 3 studs holding the IP to the timing case. Since there were none back in 2008 when I acquired the engine. Apparently.

Replaced the radio antenna.

Started daily driving it!

Timing checked and replaced 1 O2...getting ready to order a new y pipe..
Floods on the way as well, crossing fingers with them we will see if they are crap or not, or if I'll replace them with ARB. Plan is to move the light cannons to the roof.

Removed the E load rated rough as a cobb Michelin LTX AT2s and replaced them with C load rated Wrangler Duratracs.

A few weeks ago spent 300 miles driving dirt roads in Big Bend area and even at twenty pounds of pressure the E load rated tires beat the crap out of me.
