Happy Friday! Sounds like a lot of us could use one.

Better pic of the new bumper, it is pretty stout.

Where do you put the locking pin for the receiver?

So confused... It would just go on the inside like any other pin? It's a pit of a paint to physically get to and you pretty much have to lay on the ground to do it so you can reach up in there but it's there. At least I'd assume it is... I'm guessing it's the same as the one I had on my old jeep.

Which reminds me, I want to buy an actual keyed locking hitch pin for my expo sometime.

No you don't. I've lost 2 hitches to the lock getting dirty and not fully locking. One was a low quality one big buck.

Really? I've never in my life owned an actual locking one so I assumed they were pretty simple and problem free... Guess I'll stick with the standard pin I've used forever.

I have a locking pin for the Jeep... I have had it since probably 2006 and I have not had any issues with it. With that said I don't leave my hitch on all the time so the lock/pin has spent maybe half of that time sitting on the shelf in the garage.

I can feel it locking, so I know that it is engaged. I would say that I have cleaned and lubed it, but I would be lying.

Not sure if they go old enough for your explorer, but something like this would be cool if you hate have 20 keys for everything http://www.boltlock.com/shop/part-7018459

Huh, that's interesting... May have to look into that.

So tonight, clean up and install coilovers, install brake calipers, set it on the ground, torque whole front end, then go out with chick.

Tomorrow morning I think I'm going to try and knock out the headliner install in my expo first thing in the morning. If that doesn't end up taking ALL morning I'll get my cab cleaned out in the yota and start stripping down the rear half of it. Sunday, paint paint paint... Everything is getting painted black!!!!

Today on my lunch break I'm ordering a sprayer and 4 gallons of matte red dip. Hoping that comes in by next weekend and if so, that'll be next weekend's project. Actually I'll probably do all the prep on Friday night and then get up before sunrise on Sat and be spraying as the sun is coming up to try and beat the heat. "If" all that goes well, Sunday I'll spend the day swapping beadlocks around on rides.

Hopefully after 6 weeks I will finally be putting my seat covers on tonight, I was told they take about an hour. Then I have to switch out tops and put the rack back on before next weekends camping trip. Normally easy, but with both kids by myself doing normal grocery shopping is a freaking chore.



So who is all in for tomorrow afternoon?

You can access it from underneath.

I have a master lock one from walmart. I have had it for about 10 years through salt, rain, sand, and mud. It looks like **** but works fine.
