    Nice link! Thanks.

    I was going to get some 6 dollar leds from trail gear, but this looks easer.

    So today I cleaned the TB, super dirty.
    Then seafoamed and holy smokes!!! She smoked out the block, so I had to go drive around. WOW, I also put a bunch of marvel Mistery oil in her and now the oil is black. Time for a change.


    Next project is the side marker/turn signal, oil change, and black rims!!

    Full rebuild short of machine work, mean green motherfucker! Lime green block, hand-polished valve cover, and stickers! Too broke for real mods right now. Stonewall is my baby, but he's also a work truck.
    Subbed! Looks like the same green as my '96. :D

    I'd tape off the corner lights and paint those too, that's atleast what I did.

    swaped mufflers, sounds better. Have a few exhaust leaks, need to fix the welds.

    Ordered a new shifter bushing from marlin crawler, as well as a rear transfer case output seal. Which I hope will work for the front out put on the case.

    Also getting some redline for the trans

    need to bleed the clutch master.

    Kind of forgot about the build page, oh well update time.

    Installed marlin crawler shifter bushing, much better.

    Replaced valve cover gaskets, this was not super hard but a we bit stressfull. I did use autozone gaskets, the valve cover ones were fine but the spark plug hole gaskets I jacked up on install, so I had to get some yota ones, much better to install.

    Checked plugs looked new.

    Got some NGK wires i need to install next.

    Next up is suspension. I have some ideas of what i want to do, so we will see.
