  1. Actually started this thing up the other evening and put air in the tires. Front left must have dry rotted to the point of a slow leak. Surprised it fired and the gas was any good. Ran great! Took it for a little spin around the block to get things moving. Brake calliper has not fixed itself yet. Deck is now done and shed shelving is nearing completion to get the junk out of the garage to pull this thing in. Priorities ...

  2. Well was going to do 100%white, but I'm liking the top white and thinking I'll keep the red. And when ready, the bottom will be white too. Anyway , the top is done, and it's very white lol

  4. Spent a couple of nights at Fox Mountain to do some wheeling with new and old buddies. Turnout was fantastic, with around 40 rigs, ranging from mildly modified SUVs, to full-on rock bouncing buggies (very impressive they were too!!) Day 1, I did Unnamed 2 and Sea Legs. Both trails we rated as 33's and above. Both great trails, with a little challenge for the Zuk. Day 2, was High Voltage, a minimum of 35's, lockers and winch. This trail is no joke. It's a powerline trail up a mountain, with big rocks to wet the appetite as you make your way in, then on to massive rock climbs and boulders. All with a go-around if needed....but what's the fun in that? Most folks attempted the hard climbs. Some made it without pulling cable. Some suffered big breakages rendering them with 2WD only for the rest of the day. The Zuk did awesome. On approach to big climb #1 we noticed the rear locker was not engaging, but I kept going all the same with just the front locked up. I made it to the top of the climb, but could not get enough traction to make it all the way. So, after a few attempts, someone (Mario) jumped on the front bumper to get some extra weight on the front end. Another (Rick) was pushing the rear tire. Eventually, with the tires smoking and warmed up, the Zuk made it up. What a trip!!! Next up was the rock face. A 50 ft wide, 20ft high wall of rock incline. Daunting to say the least!!! Watching some of the buggies with 40"+ sticky tires and big horsepower struggle to climb it, I knew I was unlikely to make it. Had to try it though. I only made one attempt, as the Zuk got half way up, then slipped sideways, pulling a right tire off the ground. I knew right there, I was done !!! The rest of the trail was super fun. Big rocks, climbs and tons of fun!! Carnage report New Bronco - damaged door (unnamed 2), inoperable 4WD (High Voltage). Hats off to the guy, he really put that rig though the ringer.. Ford Ranger - Dana 30 Solid axle swapped with twin transfer cases (cool rig) - blew BOTH front axle shafts Jeep JK - new differential gears installed the day before - stripped (bad install) Jeep LJ - starter issues (intermittent) My Zuk - rear locker inoperable (High Voltage - but may have been faulty prior) - air actuator is getting very hot - maybe needs a clean, or replace Toms Jeep - sheared off a valve stems (fixed) James' Cherokee - blew the tire off a rim mid rock climb (fixed) Robbies Willies Jeep (Wilma) - Got through Unnamed 2 to discover no more bolts were holding the transfer case to the bell housing ( Jeep retired) Barry's TJ - Broke axle U-joint and axle, then tore the knuckle and ball joint out trying to exit the trail What a day !

  6. l got tired of tripping over this 2.3 four banger cover, so decided to paint it and install. Greased up the letters for for easy pealage. Chevy Orange engine enamel doesn't mask off very well, but I'm happy with it 20220905_123613.mp4

  8. I was impressed with the Bronco, considering where he put it for a brand new rig it did well. Just one snapped CV climbing the same side Hill that Jay has the video of his going up. I sheared a valve stem trying to climb that hill lol

  10. added a headache bar? to my rear rack to protect the occupants from anything large tied down in the back. also added some tie-down tabs, because the tubes are too wide for tie-down hooks. boy these buck sixty PA tabs are a real time saver

  12. This is my current biggest regret in life ... I didn't get the phone out to take pics. I still have one stump to pull so perhaps I'll remember to get a pic / video of that action. The full tree would have been something to watch I think - about 10 feet in diameter and about 20 - 25 feet tall. Yanked it up and over like nothing with the loose rootball.

  13. TBH - it does look great! I'd keep running that for now. re: generic console - not sure specifically, but they do make stuff like below that just "generically" can be made to fit into a rig. You'd have to find the general dimensions and then probably massage the bottom of it to sit properly.

  16. I removed the center console to install the new shifter boot, but IDK if there's any saving it as it's in bad shape. I've attempted to JB plastic-glue it back together whilst I figure out what I'm going to do. I've realized I don't really need an arm rest, but cup holders are a MUST. So, I might just make a simple dog-house for the shifter and leave the rest bare for easy cleanage. Then I can screw a cup holders to the floor.

  19. Time to tackle my shifer boot, as the Trail Gear boot had gone hard and cracked. Many years of very hot engine and transmission heat will to that. Also got a knuckle rebuild kit as it's time to refresh the front end. Front brakes are on order too. Oh, and I'm swapping the steering wheel out, so got a boss. Just need to find one I like.
