Got invited to an impromptu tour of Pockwock to Ingramport through some woods and Bowater - figured it would be a good time for a shakedown run - we covered 140km, with 58km off road 🙂 I also had

Figured 57/60ths of a high lift was better than none....so i chopped a few inches off mine and made it fit 🤪

@SQRLPWR did you hardwire your mirror? Appears there is a kit for it.

It comes with wires for power, rear camera and a GPS unit, and also a wire to connect to the reverse light,  so when in reverse it flips to the rear camera with a faux distance marker.

You can do without the gps and rear light wire, but it's got to be wired in, because the on board battery is just enough to keep it powered to save the video file correctly

Ok, so that exhaust tip turndown position was better, but I was still getting fumes in the cab, so I've been playing around with bends to figure out what will work.

Then, I found a photo of a stock Sidekick, so I replicated that, which seems to be MUCH better. Just need to fix the extreme loudness @3500

How'd you end up pressing it on?

I scavenged a 4ft piece of thick wall aluminum pipe from the metal bin at my local recyclers, then BFH

Why were the LEDs there? Were they like turn signals or something for fun?

Just for fun and for DRL as it's a Florida car

MVI is up in June and my Rubicon Express Super Flex joints all need adjusting to take up some play in the nylon bushing.

After 3 months and 6 cancelled online orders (due to back order), I finally found the tool in stock on ebay. 

I have tried to free up the collar, but they are rusted on good. Even with heat, a hammer and drif...no joy.  I also started to make a tool, but glad this has finally arrived 😃 its beefy!!

Hoping a few ugga duggas on it will break it loose

lol re: ugga duggas. I don't remember where I heard that first, but it cracks me up each time. Looking at this reminds me how much I need to give the Heep some TLC. So many other priorities around the house though.

Had partial success. Got one of the joints dismantled and Dave got it greased and tightened up for me.

One down....

Number 2 on the list had it's ball seized to the bolt. No amounts of BFH was shifting it, and because they are nylon, no heat is allowed unless replacing the bushing, and I didn't have spare bushings.

Bushings just came in with new joints...

Does Transworld sell individuals again? For awhile there they were getting away from it I thought.

Problem is the length - PA, Transworld, Parts for Trucks, Fastenal or Fastening House Atlantic don't carry 7" 9/16

Heading out to Lynds in Truro as they have stock 🙂
