So I assume that you know if you turn the ignition off whilst the headlights are off THEN push the headlights off that they stay on for 30 seconds or so....... Man I wish the tacoma did that.

Wheeling tomorrow....

Mild trail, so shouldn't do too much damage hopefully. Just a relaxing get-away for the day.

Part# reference for Thursday......

http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/de...1&keyword=2737


Gonna swap a HD ZJ clutch fan in and see if helps keep it cooler and also should halp the AC run a bit cooler. All reports online say it works awesome, just is noisy, which is fine. We shall see. Cheap part, so it's worth a go

210 average +/-. Occasionally when wheeling, it'll hit 217ish but I haven't seen it ever go above 218. Still hot for a vehicle. The biggest thing for me, is my AC started not running as cool as it should because of the heat here, so it should help. I don't mind the noise.

The noise shouldn't be that bad. Hell I ran fixed blade stuff on my CJ's and it was barely noticeable.

Greased my zerks today. Need to replace a TRE boot eventually....bought the part for the HD fan clutch mod, but didn't do it yet. Also started the planning for a complete coolant system/rad flush. Thinking next Saturday I'll do that since I'll be preoccupied with work for most of the rest of this weekend and next week. Wheeling went smooth yesterday. No breaks or damage. Only one tippy part towards the end. Rolled back into town and ended with some fireworks.

My drag link, where it meets the pitman arm, that be where I have a torn boot. Still greased the zerk for now, and will do when i have some time. I hate dealing with changing those out.

Gonna order some wheel spacers tonight also I think....
