So I cranked it and oil spit all over the hood. I wahoo it down and cranked it again... About five times. Should I clean the plugs and try to start it or keep going

Crank it without plugs in until you don't see any vaporized oil coming out. Ideally, you should pull the fuel pump fuse before doing this so you don't wash the cylinder walls down with fuel, and fill the oil pan up with fuel. Clean the plugs, and try to fire it up. Make sure to change your oil after it starts as it likely has coolant/fuel in it.

Thanks. I would have tried to turn it over tonight but while pulling out the spark plug wires ones of them wires crapped out on me. I called around and a shop nearby said he'd make me one for free if he has one laying around. I'm calling him back tomorrow morning.

He has no idea how helpful he's being. I like nice people

Is there a reason you're getting rid of your Rampage? Or just to change things up?

Garage
Put on a new window decal and added some 5/8" hose to the back of the condensation drain from the A/C so the water will no longer drain into my passenger side floorboard.

About getting the tank stolen from mounting it outside the rig. Guess its no different than having a 300 tire hanging off the back.

Where did yours leak at? Any pics of where the hose is attached. Think I have the same problem

I left one day and forgot to close the carrier, it bent funny when I hit the speed hump (3' wide speed bump). It was a PITA to open so I took it off.
