My snorkel is on!!! I can now ford to about 5 feet of water, if I could find five feet of water in Saskatchewan.

It's noisey, it whistles, I think it may hurt my low end power, but damn, it looks cool.......




The ARB is on, with the PTO winch, I am very happy. I still need to do a little modding and a little welding but it is solid..



And with the Belton lift on with 255/85R16 and split rims

Well after some grindage and precision cutting on the band saw the rear "wings" on the bumper for rocker protection went on tonight. I am very happy. It's big and ugly and is going to be very functionial.

I still need to trim and cap lots but the basic shape and design has turned out well. I still need to figure out the swing out tire carrier...I hope my tube bender gets here soon. It also needs another dozen or so bolt on points and some shackle mounts.....

After countless battery and charging issues last night I finally re-did all my battery conections. This morning my truck started like a champ and my voltage on my dash volt meter has never been higher.

I had a nice long explaination of a bunch of shit on connectors and links and I lost it all...

So the short version.

1) make sure all conections are clean and tight (really tight)

2) Use 2/0 wire or better with solder ends

3) fuse a 2/0 wire from the altenator directly to the batteries.

4) bad ground is your enemy

5) GET A GOOD GROUND

well, as I have been slacking....it's all Jen's fault hehehehe

I finally brought home this to start playing with. First on the list is a spring over and new 36" rubber. I would like to swap in cruiser hubs as well.

Well I started working on my trailer. It should be sprung over on 36's by the end of the day.

I welded land cruiser spindle with a birfield shaft to a peice of 3" pipe for my axle. I will use a mini truck disk brake hub and lock out. This way I can "lock" the hub and have "brakes" when the trailer is parked or if I have to dump it on a hill...it won't roll away...

this is what happens when you're locked up front and run heavy tires, I also grenaded the aisin hub...

Oh I wish I had the $$$ for custom cromo inners...

As a note, I can't get the stars out of my smurfields, if I was using the inner c-clip (which I wasn't) there would be no way that broken stub would have come out of there. I am not sure if they are needed at all. I know you need the snap ring (where the shaft broke) on a dif with out a locker, not sure about the inner c-clip...I don't run with either.

WOW, I can lock upo my 38s. (it's a big push, but I can do it) What a difference the master cylinder and steal brake lines make. It should get even better when I get the rear wheels adjusted properly.

Oh, and I ordered a set of these:



and these:



anyone wanna guess what makes them "special"
