That's a bummer about the knuckle Jay, I didn't know it was like that. We will figure something out for compensation.

Had a small leak coming into the cab. Initially it seemed to be coming from the sun visor area, but I finally got around to locating the drip drip from the windshield seal and gooped it up with more of the same.

Picked up a dirt-cheap Warn winch mount the other day. Unfortunately I think it's going to be a little too narrow to bolt on directly. It's all just bolted together so I might be able to disassemble it and use some of it and make it fit, then build a C channel bumper around it.

As noted before, I have similar.  I bought the relay kit from LMC Truck.  One for the Burb first, then later one for the Scout.  BEST!

 

You WON"T be disappointed.

....need to find bulbs, but they can't be any worse than what I already have

I've purchased bulbs at Cdn tire, no issues.  H4 IIRC.

Installed the Hellas....just got to wire them up 🙂

I wasn't sure about round lights, but I really dig the look of them without the covers...the covers are waaaay to white.

I believe I have lots of spare that-era roof clearance lights...........  I really like them and have them on the Burb.

Could be donated for a good Ford for a Hot Chocolate...

Could not be happier with my light choice. They're not crazy bright like leds, but they're not blinding drivers and have all the coverage I wanted 🙂

The front end in the truck however was not happy the last 2 club runs....making lots of binding rubber noises when extended. Once it's back on pavement it drives perfectly. I think the pivot bushings are long gone. Time to pull it in to the garage soon for its SAS.

You should open a SAS'r'US shop.

LOL...the SAS isn't going to be as long and complicated as the Xterra SAS was, as it's pretty much bolt-off bolt-on when replacing F150 TTB.

I'm at a stop right now and I'm just pending GUY's old D44 for the knuckles.

Got the 79 axle painted up...
