installed my alpine head unit i had laying around. thought speakers in sound bar were blown. took them out to check, only to find out someone hacked the holes to fit 6x8s and made their own screw holes. but after putting the alpine in and listening they dont sound too bad so they will stay i guess. dont feel like dealing with installing and wiring a new sound bar. also found out front speakers are completely dead, so 4x6s are on the list now. next on the list is to find out where the whistle noise is coming from. thinking its the intake mani gasket

I you want a cool look paint your chrome center caps with "night shade". It gives them a black chrome look. Lots of light coats though, the stuff runs easily

Ordered combo BL and Coil Spring Spacer lifts from Zone with Nitro shocks today from Allen Off Road! Can not wait for this to come in!

Thinking about getting rock guards as well so they can all go on at the same time!

Took half a day to replaced my TPS on my Rubi.

Let's see, broke the Ratchet T20 tool, stripped the ends off my L wrench, finally took off the Throttle body and bought a BIG Ratchet T20 tool. Tada. But my factory M5 x .8 x 25mm (hard to find) screws were toast so I had to buy a Factory TPS (Comes with new hardware) and it went in flawless. Now it is beer 30!

I used my winch and 4 wheel low to pull some bushes and their stumps out of my yard Sunday.

Best looking piece of yard equipment I own.

When I took it apart I noticed this wire(in the second pic) under the dash panel. Any idea what its for? Just wondering, I know I'm not missing anything but maybe its worth adding to.



If I'm not mistaken, that's the cable to hook up to the auto-dimming rear view mirror that has temperature and compass readings.

I built my hard top holder last year but I just put some new foam on it.

I also just built a door hold out of PVC. I need to run back to Home Depot to get more foam for it. Luckily I had some scrape PVC.

Poisonspyder.com Currie had them on close out special. This was the last pair Poison Spyder had. The only thing is they didn't come with hardware or instructions. No problem. The internet gave me the parts list and instructions. Other companies carry these sliders so check them out. Might still be a couple pairs out there.

How long did you spend in the water...?
How did you fix her...?

I went swimming the other day...
About that deep, but no water inside...

I'm concerned about my auto trans breather... and weather i should extend it....

I had factory breathers, spent about 5-10 mins in there. Gearbox fluid replaced, it worked for about a week after, now its in the shop getting the gearbox replaced... learnt that lesson the hard way.
