Thanks for all comments guys. She ic coming along nicely. Sadly the engine is starting to get really tired. I may have to start building a new one here soon. I'm either going to build a stroker or drop a 350 in it. We'll see where the budget takes me.

If your looking for one. I have the older style. The brush gaurd part on the new style is a lot wider and it is insanely expensive. Just to warn you. I would definetly look on craigslist for one. Thats how I got mine.

Changed out my dads old leaking radiator for a new all metal 3 row one. It's really nice. I'm jealous. Then went ahead and finally painted my wipers that were all cracked nice glossy black.

The new and old. (new is one is almost double the thickness of the old one)



New fresh paint



My reward for doing my dads radiator. Ribs

Looks sweet man!

Do you like those 32's? How's the wear so far?

I'm looking to get some 265/75/r16's.

BTW, maybe we should do some wheeling in southern oregon, Im down near Eureka. (about 370 miles south of Tilamook.)

I love the tires! They're wearing nicely. I need to measure them and see how much they've worn.

They just got down to the notch in between the lug in the photo


I would totally be down for wheeling if I wasn't back in Boise. But when I'm home for summer we should try and work something out.
