Got the fuel leak issue figured out. The oring that seals the fuel damper to the fuel rail was bad. Got it swapped and its running good. Still need to find time to get the clutch done, and radiator switched out before winter. Today was an extremely slow day at work and a little present showed up from Steve at ORO.

looks like a twin next to mine except for a few things, im adding a bl to mine to put me around 4.5" of lift lol, then i need new tires since my 33's are wore out, i really like the original top better but that just my preference, how did you go about changing your tailights to the led style..id like to do that to mine.

I have a 1" MML, 1.25" BL, and 2.5" springs with a .75" spacer in the front. So I would be about 4-4.5" of lift.

Original top has been back on for awhile now. I hated the Viking top.


The LED taillights can be purchased from Off Road Only. They are a local to me, Minnesota and great to deal with.

Yes I did. A buddy sprayed them for me.

We went to a autobody supply place that he uses and they took a picture ofthe paint with this little paint camera. Then they mixed the paint for it. So if my paint has faded since it was new the paint we use on the flares would be an exact match. He put adhesion promoter and something else in the paint for the plastic so it wouldnt just peel off. Then clear coated them. We didnt buff or color sand them. You can see in that picture above that the passenger front flare is peeling. I hit it against a tree and the paint cracked. Otherwise they are holding up great.
