    I was going to ask you about your Tundra because the only other consideration is a truck with removeable bed shell. The transit connect also seems like a fun car to drive in the mountains for what it is. Hell, I might even throw the rtt on it once in a while. I feel like the size of a larger van...

    I could see us going out and camping with the Promaster and using its space as we are constantly remodeling the house and needing to move around a lot of stuff. This would 100% be my daily driver, so I am trying to make the right decision. The Promaster is only really justifiable if I can get a...

    Well, some interesting developments. I'll make the update brief.... I've been living in California out of a hotel for work, and I had my little daily driver taken to a shop back in Ga. The short story is that the hatchback has to go as repairs will put it well over the actual value of the...

    Thank you for the kind words! I'm always dying to see how everyone is coming along! Hopefully as my job begins to sort of run without so much of my direct input, I'll have a bit more time. The rack was OEM for 320+k! I noticed a pretty massive leak coming from the steering rod coming out of...

    Some parts for testing suspension geometry before spending any coin on the real deal. These won't get used.... They will likely become shop art!

    I've been away a while, so I wanted to update and see whats up! The truck is getting the last of the sheet metal work done and I'm catching back up on projects that have been delayed due to work. I'm feeling like i just want to chop everything off now! I need to be patient on re-welding the axle...

    That's good to know! I have a die grinder and several rasping bits, but hopefully i won't have to use those.

    Updated front end Got my axle sorted, axle widening sleeves are machined, and the next step is to tear down the knuckles to sand blast the housing and start chopping The sleeves are meant to be self centering which should be fairly easy to check and the weldment will be super solid. The plan...

    I'm referencing this thread as soon as I get out there. Not sure what to expect as far as time commitments to work, but it sounds like they want me to make the most of it too.

    Thanks! I can't take credit, a friend of mine made it to put on his 3rd and he rolled it, the epoxy resin job isn't perfect, so I'll work on making it a much cleaner job and replacing the hardware with some stainless! This really modernized the front and it has quite a timeless look akin to the...
