How nice of you! The last time I ran out of gas in my s10 I was at Costco, right at the pumps and not one person offered to help me push it up to the pump.

Back on topic, I'm over at Pismo Beach so of course I'm back in the Oceano Dunes everyday. Here's a couple of videos of some of today's fun.

Congrats. I've put off my new purchase for a bit too. Although, I was gonna keep the WJ.

Been a bad year to try to finish my axle builds. Just dumped a few bucks to keep my current going for the winter, which I was trying to avoid doing. Put on new upper ball joints and hubs this week. New brakes all around. Probably do a new rod end at the pitman arm this week. Tie rods aren't that old. Finally installed my wheel spacers I've had for awhile now. Also pulled my 4" teraflex springs for some 5 1/2" IRO springs. Went by Discount yestaerday after work and ordered some new slippers. Getting 33 x 12.5 x 17 Cooper STT's put on wednesday, hopefully. Tonight, gonna start trimming for my Bushwacker install.

Gray 99 Laredo with '04 driveline wap. Tons of fun coming soon. Steel bumpers. 5 1/2" IRO coils, IRO adj. track bar. Rancho RS9000 Addco rear sway. 2"x.250" DOM long arms with johny joints. Custom A-arm with ball joint delete (J-joint). JK Moab wheels/ 33x 12.5 x 17 Cooper SST. Bushwacker Flares.

Yesterday I installed a used factory hitch, bezel and wiring, including cutting out my bumper to fit the bezel.

Some pics: note that K&N filter is just temporary to be replaced with Amsoil.

Trans cooler on the left, PS cooler on the right:

Formed 10 ga steel around track bar mount to reinforce the thin sheet metal and add stud mount for new swybar link:

Here you can see the original steering stabilizer mount was cut off and painted over:

Get sum rcv's and sleeves - a lot cheaper than JK's and if you look at specks on rcv's website u will see that they are stronger than stock JK's except for the ring/pinnion bust even then some yukons with an ox would pimp out a 30
