  1. The lights on the back of the truck, iv been having some issues with them burning out, probably due to vibrations, the last filiment bulb I put in only lasted an hr and it was a grote 2.5" round marker lamp, so led markers in and no problems, now onto taillights, the taillights are just universal truck lights, similar to the old taillights on a YJ jeep, and take 1157 bulb and 1156 for reverse light. Princess auto has led 1157 led bulbs, and 1156 , so I took a chance on them, Wow! On the 1157, I went with the princess auto line and chose the red 1157 led and put it behind the red lens of t
  2. Did sparkplugs, and changed the fuel filter again, then light wheeling for the rest of the day received_2519739898172888.mp4
  3. Hope it's good for you, it's been in there a while now
  4. Before the roll bar , looked really long in the bed
  5. And green LED cluster backlighting
  6. PICTURES lol. Finished the lights on the roll bar, they operate, the switch is not my first choice as it is just 3m stuck to the dash, it came with something else , but is functional with red LED light for off and green led light when on.
  7. Like the chariot races with spikes on the hubs,
  8. Hopefully getting some pics, today, Baja Rollbar is now installed, removed the one remaining off road light from the bar and installed 2 smaller off road/fog lights? That were just sitting on the shelf. An LED light bar just didn't look right on this truck. I ran new 2 conductor 14ga wire through the tubes of the roll bar, also have the relay and interior switch wired, just need to connect the lights. Next thing on the mod list is to install a "tool" box in the bed, I have an odd box from the towtruck that opens "up" which is useless on the towtruck, but should work fine on this truck. N
  9. Took the little truck around ellershouse for a quick little Run, works good, but the driver side stub axle is popping out if the diff, it will need a new snap ring , iv already replaced the pass side axle shaft snap ring for the same reason, except it was jammed and alot more work to replace it. Driver side shouldn't be too bad to replace.
  10. I sold the SAS Xterra probably within a year of rebuilding it. We had a 2008 Xterra and that is the one she rolled over, this pic is from last summer
  11. I like to think of it as no evidence
  12. Tried the s15 out on two minor off road situations, worked flawlessly, scaled both with no issues, pretty happy with the results
  13. Looking forward to the privilege of that!
  14. It's official, I'm full time Towing full time for myself, FireballTowing and recovery! It's crazy leap, especially since I just committed to buying a new er car for Tracey after she flipped the Xterra. But I feel great, like a huge weight was lifted and scared at the same time! If anyone needs a tow, 902-329-3440 , or a heavy objects moved, I delivered a brand new snow blower and more odd non car related items. FireBall Towing and Recovery ! I'm so excited
  15. More Progress, and interesting find, I found the original keys to the truck, they were sitting in the glove box haha, oh well, at least I found them before I changed the door lock cylinders, saved some time there. I tore apart the front diff long side axle tube, replaced a snap ring, freed up the stuck shift collar and now the Duke has 4x4. tried it out around the yard, worked as it should, no issues. got it in for undercoating, I pulled the grille, headlight bezels, door vents and taillights in their parking lot, and they did an awesome job for me , got everywhere with it and lot
  16. @72LandRover88 saw you inbound on the 101 crossing lucasville overpass on Saturday, your Rover looks awesome with the cab and open bed, I was in the work towtruck headed out bound
  17. Very possible, probably right on that assumption, iv done temp fixes that worked good enough they become permanent lol
  18. That reminded me to install new rad hoses on the Duke. Still has the originals with still readable GM partnumbers
  19. Nice! Good when the parts are on hand to fix those nusance issues
  20. The guy I got it from told me as much as he knew, he was planning on full restoration to better than new condition, but had too many irons in the fire, this little truck is almost rust free, amazing condition, so I'll keep forging forward, . Dropped off for MVI today, it failed, the windshield was broken, the ignition switch didn't require keys but needed a screwdriver and the tailgate handle was not there. Took to glass shop, they installed new windshield, then I put in a new ignition Lock cylinder in the steering column and installed a new tailgate handle, but did not have bolts, so I
  21. The "DUKE" got it's new headgasket, along with the rest of the gaskets needed while pulling the head, also did rear shocks, new muffler, intermediate pipe, new tail pipe, new side mirrors, new rear brakes and wheel cylinders, fixed the inoperative wipers, fixed the inop reverse lights, installed really ugly license plate light, swapped tires with the Nissan and gave the Duke it's identity back by installing the proper GMC grille. When removing the head, found a broken head bolt!? Was broke for a while, had bit of rust on it, and found bent pushrods. !? Didn't see anything to cause those issue
  22. Headgasket arrived today, in 4 days I'll tow the s15 into work and finish the rest of the maintenance and install the new gaskets. And some little mud tires
