Had some time to kill before picking up my daughter on the way home from work so I took a stroll through PepBoys. Anyone know anyone or familiar with Q-industries MasterFlow MF1050. Looked like a pretty good compressor for $60.

Getting ready to order new transmission mount. Poly or stock? Thoughts/experiences? Thanks. Just looked at it today, did not drive it.

If your just using it to air up 33" or smaller tires I'd say go for it. Follow the instructions so you don't burn it out.

Changed my oil, filled up the food tank, and put about 150 on the odo. Put my bikini top back on, expecting some rain tomorrow. Hopefully it'll get rid of some of this crazy pollen!

new tires would have been first on the list if the old top hadn't been made out of tissue paper... it disintegrated into a pile of dust when we took it off to put the new top on.

Been topless since Sunday. Loving the temps and the beach. This pollen sucks though....

I'd go stock rubber.
Poly transmits more vibes.

Changed both sway bar links. The passenger side separated at the joint on top. I will be disconnecting when off road to extend their life spans. The top bushing/dust boot that covers the cup and ball were split on both of the old ones anyway.

Ordered my two rear Rancho 9000XL's and finally got the two rear fender flares off, bed lined and re installed. Will post pics tomorrow when the front ones are done too.

I have one mounted under my hood. It works pretty well to air up my 33's. Just 2 minutes or so per tire to go from 10-26psi. I have been using it every weekend for 6 months or so with no issues.

Installed a RC 2.5" lift which included new springs and 2.2 shocks. I have a 1.25 " BL with MML to install but I may hold off until I get 33's. Need to find out more about them before I try that one though.

Only go poly if you plan to switch your engine mounts as well. Having both rubber and poly on the drive train will cause more vibes in the cabin.

Took the doors off for the first time since I have owned it! It was easy. They came right off.
Raining here that's why it's inside.

00TJSport, Took the doors off and then it rains. Is that ironic or appropriate?

Installed a 2" lift!

....but didn't think to take before & after pictures

Just talked with my wife about maybe buying some bigger tires, and she said that's great as long as she gets some new dresses!
