    I like those too, they don't look like some of these other bulky blobs just slapped on.

    Did you do the regular rear bumper or the high clearance?

    I did the high clearance with the hitch mounted behind the license plate.

    That's what I was leaning towards, I think it looks good. I still have to do my 4WD conversion though, before I go adding all this stuff.
    Soon hopefully.

    Here so far.

    Definitely and adventure!
    I'm still looking for a good FJ T-case and a 750F transmission donor. I'm looking to source a higher mileage transmission at least since I plan to rebuild it stronger anyway. I'll have to do some work on the engine too since it's at 203,000 miles on what I can only assume are all original parts.

    I'll have to keep an eye out, it seems like they go pretty fast.

    Well finally decided to tackle the spark plug change, It appears worse then it was.

    pic of plugs top is passenger side back to front and bottom is drivers side, same order. Not bad considering they have 99k on them

    I was surprised on how tight they were to remove, most state that they are very loose.

    Looks better than mine did when I changed them here.
    I don't know the last time they were changed before that.

    That’s what I thought, thanks

    Ya i just kept putting it off and well you know and finally I just decided to get it done.

    Sup bud, I need to spend some time digging through your thread, looks like you have done a bunch to it since you got it. I started and something pulled me away...

    It's all good, I have three or four threads that I'm working my way through in my free time. I understand :laugh:

    I was slightly distraught when I pulled that first oily spark plug out :eek:
    I need to check them again and see if any more has found it's way past the seals.

    Well spent the past week out at the cabin this past week in Sanderson, but before those pics felt I should post the truck first as it hit its first 100K while on the trip home.

    Here is checking the feeder prior to leaving, had to adjust the time as it was going off too early in the morning.

    Then as they say first of a couple of these I look forward to seeing in this rig.

    Well where to begin, it was a long week but enjoyed it at the same time...had plenty of nice evenings but some long days getting it where it is at now. I am not done and as I did have help @07taco @Phoosa @BuzzMor ( thanks again for coming out guys) there were some issues with the cabin as I started to get into it, some could not be fixed but its a far cry from where I started.

    Small history, cabin has been in the family for 30 years, abandoned until last spring for about 10 years....If you scroll back in the thread there are other pics on how bad it was.

    So now the outside starting view

    Lets start removing the trim

    Not as much done the first day as we had to unload the trailer to get to all the material but here is the end of day one.

    IMG_3321.jpg

    After relaxing in the afternoon, the guys decided to go for some small wheeling on the property. Courtesy pics from my wife.

    Then sitting back and enjoying the evening, couple of beers/drinks and cooked up some food for us all.

    Well day three, the guys are gone and the wife hurt her back while moving something....:annoyed:

    So here we go

    Prepping for door relocation

    IMG_3333.jpg

    Door out and exterior walls coming downIMG_3334.jpg

    IMG_3335.jpg

    More of the exterior coming down

    IMG_3336.jpg

    Time to prep for new window for where the kitchen is being relocated to

    IMG_3337.jpg


    Had to fix the floor first, door had leaked for years and the flooring was weak.
