Thanks for the responses , guys .
Don't get me wrong, when i wasn't getting something electrical fixed it was great. Plus the 17 in town/26-28 highway with 33's was nice. Not being able to see at night, cleaning the iac monthly, computers and interior lighting issues not so much.

We don't drive at night very much , causing interior lighting to not be much of a problem , although headlights would be nice . I had a similar IAC problem on my wife's Jimmy of the same vintage , so I know what that's like . Computer problems are enough to keep me walking , so to speak .

IDK , maybe I'm getting spoiled by not having problems . Our Country has been fairly trouble free , but for a water pump and a TPS early on . Oh , I had to replace the heater fan motor , too . Along side of having to change the oil and filters ... I forgot that I had to replace a couple rusted out brake lines .
Hmm , now that I put it all together , maybe it hasn't been such a great vehicle .
No matter , for what I paid for it and the fact that it has 220++K miles on the clock , I'm still not complaining .
It doesn't owe us a single red cent .

Got some suspension and steering parts in the mail last night. One step closer to having all the pieces for the front suspension.





Also had enough time to drop the fuel tank so I can start to weld the rear stiffeners. That's all taped off now, but I really need to find a good spot to store it in the mean time. I guess it should probably go out in the shed.



Was glad to see there isn't any big rust issues in the back. I'll wire wheel everything and hit it with POR15 and call or a day.

I have sockets going up to 2.5" in my 3/4" drive set, but no big wrenches. I'll be building adjusting the links at my buddy's house and using his lift and tools for that part though, so it won't matter much. If I want to adjust them I'll use an adjustable.

Some think its nuts to buy a tool for one rarely needed purpose. But for $16, I enjoy knowing I have it anytime I need.

3/4" drive ... I wouldn't want to be totting those around very much . Heck , I strain with just my 1/2" stuff . Granted , there's a lot of extra sockets and other 'attachments' .

Something that size can be considered a multi purpose item . A weapon , an extra anchor and maybe just the right tool for adjusting fist sized joints . LOL

Believe me, they rarely leave the shelf. But when I need to break loose a pinion nut or something similar, it's handy to have the big ratchet and a long piece of pipe that slides perfectly over the handle, and a properly fitting 6 point socket.

Since I'm quite a bit smaller than most of my friends and enemies, I've considered it for self defense. But mostly, its awesome for the double wrench prybar trick. Its actually gotten alot of use due to that.

I have both for my 1/2" . Simply amazing what a little leverage can do .

I have used too much leverage in the past and broke more than one breaker bar . My daughter once bought me a breaker bar for my birthday , just as a spare . LOL
