Alright. Nice fun there. Stop making fun of my ostrich loafers.

Wait until I put the grizzly locker in the LB7. It’s still a real truck.


I like ostrich, for my boots. Heck, swelling is down enough I may just get a pair!

Not sure of my rear yet for the LBZ, but the front is getting a truetrac.

Now I have to up the price on this, just dropped another few hundred into it.

So after looking at the pump assembly and the tank after draining I decided to just replace both. The rust and gunk was nasty, so dropping it anyway now  :facepalm:

Summit had pumps for $87 ($67 for the 40 gal?) and a dorman 31 gal tank was $107. It was $122 but when I checked to see if the tank was baffled, it showed a diff tank. So I called to change the order and they matched Amazon and gave me free shipping (normally $10 oversize).

All in stock in Reno so will have tomorrow, but another scout event this weekend so will tackle on Monday.

Anyway  :rolleyes: I cut the hole, disconnected the wires and got her open. Hole could have a been a little bigger, but it worked (8x8).

Parts were falling off and the pump hose had rotted away. With the condition, the R&R is not worth the time.

Drained another 5-6 gallons of something from the tank using the pump I got for the boat, worked great!

Fuel I drained was pretty bad, just real dark. I am not even sure how long it has been sitting. I have had it for 4 years and the last reg tag is 2005.

Cutting the top open today and will see for sure. Got 10 gal fresh gas and a couple filters.

So this thing cranks good, has spark but not firing. I am checking wires and jumping this and that. It starts with a squirt of either, promising!

Clean up under the dash, jump the fuel pump but nothing. Figured it was the pump but make sure it has juice first. Clean the ground follow the pump wire and right past the axle power is gone, hmm. Start feeling around and I find this;

Funny thing is it looks clean like it just came unplugged. Still have to change the pump but at least I have power to it now!

After moving all kinds of stuff around. I finally got it opened up to do the fuel pump.

Drilled a hole in the center to check what looked like the right spot and will open it up to 8in square.

There are wires all over this darn thing! 1/8 drill came out almost dead center  :beercheers:

Have I said how much I hate drum brakes, well changing them at least. But they are done!!

Axle looks good under there, Sub sits nice and the wider axle lets the tires sit even with the sides, how it should have been made.

Cleaned out the master and gravity bled the new brakes. New cylinders little more paint and a few nuts and bolts.

Got the rear cleaned out and put some in Spartan and some in the Elky. I have way to many parts floating around!

My wife puts things in the garage literally. Just throws it out there and put it away. Then they complain they can't get to thing when I throw it in the little garage.

I wish drinking did help, but it feels good.

How about some input here guys as I throw a few things around. 1500 is about done and will have Spartan to drive during this.

Now I can do leafs or coilover, cost is about the same (read below). I will buy some brackets but most will be DIY. Plus the idea is to keep it around a 6 inch or less lift for my 37s.

Coils are more work but should ride better, allow some adjustability both in height and can be rebuilt. Bilstein came out with a new 60mm coilover they say will handle an SAS. (#33-225616) Have to get shocks anyway so stepping to coilovers is like buying custom springs. It would be radius arm, not 4 link.

Leafs will be much easier, really more time removing the IFS than building the setup. I may loose some turning radius most use the 32.5 over the 36.5 axle I have. Many of the kits are for a 38.5 axle so radius may not be a big issue at all.

Actually, you do have the right of self defense and you do not have to back down from an encounter.

I will not go to SF for anything, I hate even driving through it.

If they tried the goings on here like is going on in Portland, there might be fewer protestors if they try to pull me from my vehicle.

I want to see how this works but it would not work here just for getting the wood all the time.

Seeing the pipe in the attic, will that be supported somehow? A lot of weight there with water in there.

Surprised JR didn't ask you why your heater looked like it once had 30 gallons of water in it.
(I assume the drain plugged up at one time? condensation?)

Getting there pretty nice. I was thinking of building the slide for the exchanger the same way as you posted.

As a thought, have you thought about using quick disconnects on the lines for maintenance? You could secure the lines better and still have access. It is low pressure so the only issue would be flow.

Yep, looking good but I agree with the bracing. Even a small cable "X" along the sides will do so much and you know you are going to load it up!

So when is the web site going to be up? Looking for a few things for the SAS as I finish the sub.

Used the scaler for those hard to get to parts, worked great (as I said, I cleaned to much)

Old brake lines worked fine. Fuel pump is bad, tried to jump it but nothing. Getting this running should up the $$ some for sure! Going to cut a hole vs drop the tank, just seems easier. 

Paint the hood black, use bedliner under the side trim and TSC desert tan for the rest. Should look good!
