  1. Decided to reinstate my CB radio because it would have been really useful on the last run as nobody had a HF radio. So with no room to add another radio, I moved the HF from the passenger footwell to the rearview mirror. I like it up there. There's a lot of weight on that sheet metal tho, so we'll see how long it lasts without me having to do some reinforcements.
  2. thankfully, easily fixed received_1619548338389978.mp4
  3. Been chasing down a noise for some time now. Thought it was a bearing somewhere in the drivetrain, but just couldn't figure it out. Went wheeling in Stewiake on new years' and it got massively worse on the way home, to the point of screaming. Eventually I found it 20220103_183154_1.mp4 20220103_183154_1.mp4
  4. Merry Christmas, hope you're all having a fab day.
  5. Bought this generic TJ cargo net a while ago, and had an hour spare to make it work. The net is rectangular, so had to do some cutting and switched out the useless velcro for snaps. Really it serves no real purpose other than a faux divider, but I like it
  6. It doesn't, so no need for a quick connect really.
  7. Got an NPT swivel from PA, problem solved
  8. Wheeling plans got cancelled today, so decided to tackle the slow air leak on my OBA. Re-taped all connectors and all is good again. I found the new quick connect circled does leak if I wiggle it. It wasn't the original cause of the leak. So I need to figure out a better way to connect the pump (under the passenger seat) to the tank.....better quick connect maybe?
  9. it does, the switches for that are in the center console
  10. None of those other switches are wired up...they are just spares
  11. After the last adventure, I decided I needed an internal winch switch, just for convenience sake.
  12. post wheeling maintenance.... front brake pads replaced, readjusted the rear brakes, replaced rotten diff breather hose and greased up the suspension arms. 20211127_133125_1.mp4
  13. AFAIK they don't check passport there.
  14. was thinking Sunnyside Mall has a communal seating area that may work for you @littlered
  15. Great to see u out wheeling again James. Jeep works good, and I like the red too
  16. um, hold on mr @TomWood - no mention of the Bullnose?
  17. IDK what options you have for the Jeep and RAM, but this is a super popular hotrod conversion using this style of caliper.
  18. Parking brake was super easy to install, as the stock cable was a perfect fit with no modifications needed
  19. Brakes are in, just need to hook up the parking brake lines. Took me a while to bleed them as they cannot be bled in place as the bleeder isn't at the top. Had to make the hard lines, which are toyota bubble flare to GM double flare.
  20. Thanks. The stress-reliever has been laid up for a few weeks now, so really looking forward to getting it back on the road!!
  21. Bit of an update on the rear brakes. Unfortunately the Mitsubishi rotors are not going to work without major reworking, because they are too tall and a bit too deep to fit the caliper within the 15 inch rim..clearance is tight!!. No big deal as they were super cheap, so worth a shot. Because of MVI and the fear of an inspection seeing DIY brakes, I decided to buy Sky's Offroad Design caliper brackets and pre-modified Chevy rotors, just like Clarence's. If I factor in materials, my free time, which is pretty limited right now, it works out about the same cost as making my own brackets, buying standard Chevy rotors and paying for them to be turned to fit. So, excuses out of the way, I've got one side offered up, and made some brake line brackets. Next step is to chop out the other side and do the same. One thing I have learned is, the GM metric calipers with ebrake are an absolute PITA to setup. There are videos with various techniques to get it done, so no worries there.
  22. Started on a little rack project to help secure gear on the parcel shelf. I wanted this ready for the summer event, but didn't have time. Rear brakes are on hold until the weather turns.
  23. Replaced the dead Mishimoto transmission fan...it was rusted up, and it was blowing forward too, so sorted that out whilst I was in there. Got a 1990 Toyota truck axle shaft from Kenny's...$22 lol. Started mocking up how the caliper is going to be positioned in relation to the axle. I'm super pleased with the Mitsubishi rotor as it slipped right on...the bracket will need a step.
  24. Correct, here's a good explanation of how it works
