Put on my new front bumper and 8274 that I've been rebuilding, just need to get synthetic rope for it now. Also installed some Genright front fenders about a month ago and upgraded to some Bilstein shocks, world of improvement in the ride.

Just keep looking. Don't settle for anything cheaper.

I replaced my tachometer bulb. I can see the gauge at night now. The old bulb worked but was tinted looking.

I completely agree, the "refurbishing" of the 8274 has definitely surpassed the price of a new cheap one, but this thing is 26 years old and will last another 26+ years when done properly.

You're correct 82, OME YJ springs with conversion shackles from Ruff Stuff Specialties and regular CJ spring hangers from Crabtree. Love the combination.

Couldn't find anybody to go wheeling with so I rotated the tires, then cleaned it up.

Finally found my intermittent vac leak, the grommet on my pcv valve. It would only leak if the engine was hot then I shut it off for a bit then start it back up when the grommet was warm. I ended up putting teflon tape around the grommet so it seals.

Wow, your '7 is looking great!

Like how you do all of the work yourself, wheel it hard and daily drive it!

Hat is tipped!

In memory of RAMS, since I used a quote of his above and these waterfall pics reminded me of his infamous water fording picture, I 'fixed' the mileage for you.

Now if someone could photoshop Vex into one of them...
