Man, I wish we had safety inspections here in Indiana. I saw this older (boxy) S10 yesterday that was almost driving sideways because the chassis was bent. Something like that clearly is not road worthy and should not be driven.

On topic, I used my Jeep as a steam roller today. I used pothole patch to rebuild one side of my driveway that decided to collapse over the last 2 years. Once I got the pothole patch stuff all where it needed to be and packed down with a shovel, I put wood on top of all of it and rolled over it with the Jeep a handful of times to really press it down. Hillbilly? Yes. Did it work? Yes. Were my neighbors laughing? Yes.

I figured since you were the only county in Indiana to have emissions they would also have a safety inspection. lol

This weekend I:

-Retrofitted the HID's into my off road lights (not installed)
-Tore the dash apart and made it black instead of puke brown
-Installed 4 new Infinity Kappa speakers
-Installed my 12" Sony sub from my old car into the Jeep
-Mounted and balanced all 4 tires.

Oh ya that was just Saturday.

Today I:
-re installed all the dash panels
Non Jeep after
- cleaned the garages (shop AND home.....)
- stored the motorycycle
- painted the bedroom of my apartment

This was after I went into gumbo over my left headlight and plugged the radiator, filter clean

None of Indiana has safety inspection, unfortunately.

@badbird17x
I was trying to figure out how the hell you attached a cone to the throttle body. That's what I was picturing. What size filter did you use with that?

Was you speedo not working at all or erratic? Mine jumps all over, flips all the way around back to zero and gets stuck. Then sometimes it works fine. Lol. I'm gonna try swapping in a known good cluster and try.

I wouldn't put one of those on unless you want to suck in a bunch of dirt and dust into the engine. None of those cone filters work well at all.
