My biggest problem was not having room to turn my shitty ratchet, could only get a click or two out of it. All of my good tools and air tools are at work, would have been a breeze with them.

January in Washington state and we were lucky enough to get 60 degree weather and sunshine today, so obviously the top had to come off.

Still a chilly drive in the evening but gotta love it.





Also, I'm trying to figure out how to level my rig out? It always looks to me like the front end sits a fair amount lower then the back (if you can tell in the pictures). I don't have a back seat or spare in the back usually, but I wouldn't think that would make a huge difference. Can I get spacers or anything?

Yeah. They have 1 and 2" spacers. Try those in front. Engines are heavy

Filled er up! But she didn't want to take it spit about $5 worth of gas allover the place half way through filling. This is the first time that's ever happened I have had it act like its full when it's not but never spit up a bunch of gas. For being a gas guzzler you'd think she'd take all she could...

Put 32s on.
No lift. Well, might even be lowered in the front with the bumper & winch.
Somehow (sway bar connected, that's how) this only rubs control arm at steering lock, no fender scrub.

Just ordered a new distributor. The upper bearing in mine is getting a little sloppy and allowing the rotor to drag on 2 of the lugs.

Well that and aerodynamics...

Just put in a new wiper motor & linkage, and cowl panel.
Haven't found wiper arms yet, might have to break down and buy new ones.

High colonic - stem to stern. Changed all fluids - oil, tranny, differentials, radiator - the works. Also but on four new goodyear radials - stock style, haven't decided on what the long-term plan is yet, but the old tires had to go. Also, got to play in some unexpected Indiana slush on my way to the garage. Then I drove around for about five hours just loving life. It was a good day.

Sahara, they are 33/12.50/15 Duratracs load rating C. Had to buy new 15" wheels, but certainly extended my tire options in load rating C. I had the 31/9.0/16 MT/R's Kevlar on the stock Rubi rims, load rating E. They rode terrible. Just installed DPG Ultimate OME 2.5" lift with JKS 1.25" BL with new wheels and tires.........

All I can say is WOW.....I am now a believer in the OME coils and DPG Offroad Ultimate kit. The Bullet rides like a Caddy now compared to stock.......
