I just noticed that you are running Kuhmo's. How do you like them? My bro had a set on his 76 Ford, and loved the ride on and off road....and I wanna join the UJC Dub Club. I think I am still just a web wheeler, not officially a member as I haven't been out to any events.

Haha, dude come out this weekend to the Ghost Town Expedition... should be fun! Wait till next year, dude... we wheel a TON. So you'll have to come out for sure

As for the Kumho's, they have been great tires... Excellent road manners, and being directional, they are exceptionally quiet. They are a fairly soft compound so off road traction is very good, especially aired down. Also being a soft compound, they do seem to wear quick but other than that, I highly recommend them!

I wish I could be there, but I can't make it. I am jealous of those going to Moab after Thanksgiving as well. I have a room booked for GSW 2011, but I know I need to get out to UJC events before then.

Did u notice a difference? Sorry I just started checking out your build and am to lazy to go read lol..

Also have u ever just dumped it in your gas tank? Works great to clean the entire fuel system... My mechanic friend that I worked with for awhile loved to just take a vacume hose off and stick it in the bottle letting the vehicle suck up the seafoam lol it would smoke up our huge shop fast..

I noticed a HUGE difference! I did a full oil flush using 2/3 of a can of seafoam on my last oil change. I also used about half a can in the vacuum lines, which ended up causing a wonderful toxic white smoke screen in the Autozone parking lot, hahaha. But it idles much better, throttle is more responsive and my sticky lifter on start up no longer gives me guff! I highly recommend it to anyone who has never used it

great build man. rig is sick. especially like the easy to do tank tuck, plan on following your idea. makes it look a lot easier using nutserts.

anyway i know of seafoam and my buddy uses it in the oil, but you seem to do it differently. so you put 2/3 can in with the old oil? and drive for a bit then do the oil change? also, ive never heard of the vacuum line thing. what vacuum line did you pull off.

Hey, thanks man! Nutserts are awesome! I'm using them to mount my sliders on the uni-body frame rails and will have pics as soon as it's finished

But yeah, I'll put seafoam in the old oil right before the oil change. Every other oil change I'll drain the old oil first, add 5 quarts of some cheep synthetic, add seafoam & drive it for about 50 miles or more, then change the oil as I normally would... makes for a great flush but it's a little pricey.

As for adding it to the vacuum line, I take off the big vacuum line attached to the brake booster, then as the engine is running, I slowly add seafoam into the line. It may stall the engine, but just start it back up. I use about 1/3 to half a can. Supposedly cleans out carbon buildup. Here's a vid I found on youtube
YouTube - The Official "How To Use Sea Foam" from Sea Foam and GUY.

oh sweet. guess i could of searched it. didnt think there would be a youtube video. huh internet has everything. Thank you.

Also one other question i have is where did you get your nutserts for the tank lift, and what size did you use (or p/n if you can remeber) your tank lift i think is the easyiest to follow/due. i have big plans for my wj; lift, tire/rim, flares, and tank tuck that i plan on knocking out all at the same time. Thanks in advanced.

Its a shame most of yall live so far away. id love to go wheeling with yall sometime, but im stuck out on the east coast in ****ville, north carolina....haha
