I changed the wipers and added some washer fluid to shut up my VIC. I'm done buying expensive wiper blades for this thing. I had Bosch Icon blades on there. Let me tell you, they were awesome blades until I got them a little dirty. They're pretty delicate compared to other blades. I picked up a set of Michelin blades that were like $7 each. We'll see if they last 4 months like the Icons. If they do, I'm happy.

Not a ford fan but man that's bad!

Got it stuck. It's still stuck. It's so stuck I could call insurance and say it was stolen and no one would ever know. It's so stuck I don't know anyone with a capable enough 4x4 to even to to where I got stuck to winch or yank me out.

93-steering box out same steering box back in new SS got up to "50" no DW
mounted the roof basket secure
mounted hilift to said basket
measured for front DS need something to comfortably fit between 30"
wired the winch back up tested it first time since i got it repaired
new yellow top titan battery Under Warranty (bad alt will ruin a battery if you drain it and dont charge it back up)
found the thrush washers I did not install when I put the Aussie in : guess I'll be doing that again



niner- Adjusted the TV cable , drove it to the JY scored a set of mechanics gloves that actually fit and a waggy steering box & durango steering box
anyone know anyone that will drill and tap the box if i send it to them? thinking about picking up some of these parts http://www.rockstomper.com/catalog/steering/ramassist.htm



94- drove it to AutoZone to return a axle breather fitting that did not fit on the 44a guess I'll see if the dealer has one tomorrow

Which ones were leaking? I'm the most worried about the lower trans cooler line that hooked into the rad with like a little plastic clip. I didn't tighten the other ones too tight though.

The lower trans line into the radiator, it was the o-ring first then i cut the fitting and used a hose clamp. I drank a cheap beer, came back, looked it over, closed the hood, backed out and parked side way in the street and tightened it. if it starts to leak cut it and use a hose clamp

Didn't happen. Got there with the 450, and the damn battery was dead, after a neighbor kid rammed his truck in to jump it with no luck, I decided to get the charger and generator, but then the 450 plugged the fuel filter. Didn't happen. Lol That's me googling what the engine fault on the 450 was. Great night

Those things are cool, but I have 27000 lbs suction cupped in gumbo. I'm hoping my 55,000 lb 450 can get it, otherwise I'll have to borrow the neighbors quad track.

How tight did you do the other lines?

I'm going to bypass that stupid quick disconnect thing tomorrow.

With a wrench id say it was like 10lbs of torque, not very tight. you could use teflon tape on it. i tightened it till it was snug then gave it an extra 1/4 to 1/3 turn.
the top line is also a hose clamp but i had to change out the fitting so the hose would fit on it
