    Sorry guys Im still recovering from the river and the 16 - 18packs of Lonestar Light me, my dad and cousin killed :)

    The only updates are:

    I have a set of 35's to mount after I dismount the 33's that are on it now.

    That should get done this week. My power disconnect and Blue seas fuse block are in as well. That will be done by the weeks end.

    Oh, I scored an 34/78 PC1500 refurb Odyssey battery last thursday for (65 bucks) and got it mounted up. It is a little shorter than the previous one. Ill make a spacer to bring it up a little and it will be fine. But really 65 bucks you cant go wrong with that. Its only missing the sticker on top and the red top matches the engine accents. So Ill be holding off on the optima for a while.

    I think my alternator is on the downhill slide though. With the new battery, It still shows a higher charge rate than expected. I'll probably do a the GM 1 wire upgrade fairly soon.

    Clean that cold start inj. It by far was the easiest thing that I have done so far. Less than 10 min easy.

    I need to get my 35's mounted so I can get Rob his tires. I am also kinda bummed a group of friends are going to hidden falls this weekend to wheel and I cant make it. I should have some good fender chopping pics soon though.

    In my above post 41 in the third pic there is a connection on the intake manifold beneath the "I" in "EFI". The rear bolt is a 12mm for the fuel line. Take it off first, the 2 bolts on the intake are 10 mm. 3 bolts total. You might have to bend the fuel line a little to get it out completely. I used some contact cleaner and cleaned it up really good and reassembled. Be careful of the small brass gasket on the fuel line bolt. Its easy to drop.

    Well I bit the bullet this morning and ordered a set of Longfields. Ill have to wait another month for my front bumper but thats fine with me.

    Since I'll be diving into my front axle and have all new parts for it; seemed only logical to order the Longs. The new internals include: Longs Chromo Hub Gears, Longs knuckle ball wipers, knuckle rebuild kit from TG and now the Longfield 30 spline axles. The new externals include: TG knuckle gusset kit, Marlin axle truss, Marlin wheel spacers, Marlin HiSteer.........

    Justifying the money for the axles was pretty easy considering they have a lifetime warranty.

    I think it will work well :)

    Sounds pretty bullet proof. I can't wait to see this rig come together. :)

    Are you familiar with the shortcuts?

    If necessary drain the front diff, I use an ammo can to catch the oil. With a little care it can be reused in a pinch. If the axle can be jacked up high enough skip this step.

    Remove the wheel/tire. Remove the brake caliper and zip tie or wire it up out of harms way. No need to add a broken brake line to your problems at this point.

    Remove the 8 bolts that hold the backing plates on the felt wipers and pull the wipers/rubber gasket etc back out of the way.

    Remove the six bolts that hold the selector into the locking hub.

    Remove the snap ring that holds the Birfield in the hub.

    Remove the four nuts on the steering arm, use a brass drift and BFH to remove the cone washers. Move the steering arm out of the way, no need to remove the TRE.

    Now the whole knuckle and hub can be tilted forward and pulled off as one unit.

    Assembly is the reverse.


    By doing it this way you do not mess with your wheel bearing preload's.

    Spent last night hammering down some pinch welds and removing the plastic inner fenders. Getting ready to mount my 35's tomorrow.

    Rob your tires should be ready for delivery by the weekend.

    I have a little rubbing but not too bad. This is only temporary for now anyways.
    Suprisingly the truck still seems to accelerate at the same pace as with the 33's.

    Just by chance, I was talking to a wheeling buddy from TTORA last night and he is looking to get rid of his Marlin front bumper off his trail rig. He wants one with a little longer stinger on it.

    So long story short, I am the proud new owner of a Marlin Tube bumper. Should be picking it up Sat morning.

    I hope the mounting holes line up since he has an 86 4 Runner.

    If not I'll make it work :) Not trying to copy you too much Sean, but this was a deal I couldnt pass up

    I think it will be pretty close.

    With the money I saved there, I just ordered a set of Race Ace hood Louvres to keep the engine bay temps down :)

    It was a little tight but it worked. (That's what she said.)
