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.

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

Yeah that would be great. Basically the rad hoses and possibly trans lines.

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:
