went offroading yesterday with some friends. it was on a friends property so it was all good, clean fun


i made that


oh, forgot to mention i got osme 265/75/16s mounted.. shown in that picture ^^

interior starting to get dirty

driving along and just sunk.

these new tires are pretty decent A/Ts especially for being an off brand, FREE, and mounted for $20
but they wernt going to get me out of that


flexing while stuck. this was a very awkward stuck.

the aftermath

don't forget you added and deleted this mod
I see you have no front bumper and the plastic piece that goes around the steering colloum. You have a lot of work to do to get her clean again.

Sounds and looks good. I like the sound of the exhaust. How does it sound on the inside? Does it get loud and annoying at all?
I also like where you mounted the CB. It's nice and hidden pretty well.
How did you do the dash lighting with LEDs? Is it hard at all?

dash lighting is easy...just take it apart (instrument cluster) and replace all the oem bulbs with the leds.

its not as loud as ud think on the inside at idle. but when driving around u can definitely hear a rumble going on in the back
for the first 2 days i kept driving around with my back right window down and downshifting like crazy to listen to it crackle
for the dash leds just go to superbrightleds.com and get 7 194 bulbs and just swap them right in

hmmmmmmm couple issues now. im back at school now but ill have to fix them sometime...
issues include (and are mostly from offroading)
-major coolant leak (coming from near the lower radiator hose....shouldnt kevins radiator support have protected this area?)
-i think my IAC is FUBARed
-front driver CV joint is destroyed. took awhile tho lol (both boots have been torn since early this past summer gives me an excuse to upgrade to ujoint front axles)
-cracked another fog light open
-ripped driver foglight off completely
-leak in the front of my tcase (should be easy to fix)

but on a postive note i figured out why i kept blowing rear output shaft seals on my tcase and fixed the problem finally! no more leak from the back!!!

John, do you have the factory radiator? If so, the leak is expected and not much kevin's could do lol. I just replaced my radiator. Great fun there......not.
