You beat me to it. Google 'Chrome Mudflap' and go to images... lots of flap-bling to choose from.
No ladies (Remember...I might let my daughter drive this to volleyball practice or frozen yogurt).
Out for a Sunday drive with the daughter to see how she does...She did great! She respects this modified machine's strengths and weaknesses.
All PA trucks get a plow sooner or later.
Met up with a guy and picked up a steering wheel column. When the youngest gets home from practice we'll install it together.
The one in the XJ is a little broken and you didn't need a key to start it.
Also pulled the on board air tank & gauges from the donor XJ while I was there...He included an "Air Compressor" switch.
The other day the daughter was pulling into the drive way and I went out to assist her backing it up where I wanted it. I noticed smoke coming from under the hood and I freaked out with my baby sitting in the XJ. I yelled to shut it off until she figured out that I was in a panic (I may have over reacted, but that's my kid in there). I looked things over and suspected some fluid cooking on the block...Whew!
Today I had time to trace the problem...Power steering pressure hose had a pin hole leak that was shooting on the exhaust manifold. Quick trip to FLAPS and I'll have it going here soon. I need to get off the computer and have some wrench fun!
Getting to use my tool cart
Fixed an back on the road.
Want to stop by and help me at work? Think i have one with bad piston slap. Used car.
Uh.. Yeah! That would be cool.
Finally convinced manager a used engine would be cheaper fix. Hoping to swap ot out tomorrow
