Well, It is happening. I'm finally putting a winch on the runner. Never needed one cuz everyone else has one right. My M.O. for all these years. Now to understand this in and out switch thing. That's what happens when you win the winch at the raffle.

Got most of the rest of my stuff done this weekend. Hacked in power for the back and bolted down the Engel Slide Lock. Still need to do a couple of small things on the truck, oil change, grease driveshafts, probably clean the outside (lots of greasy handprints, can't represent with a filthy truck) and vacuum the inside. Started packing the Action Packers last night. I need to collect all the spare parts and stuff into one or two boxes.

I did hit a major snag yesterday with recovery gear. I got one of Slee's jack tools thinking that it would work on the ARB front bumper. But the orientation of the tab w/ hole is apparently different than on 80s and stuff because it does not sit flat on the bumper. I was just testing my gear and I bent the little tab on the tool. :-( So for the time being I will have to plan on using the kludged together shackles unless hopefully someone locally has an genuine ARB bumper adapter in stock.

I tried to do this, but it does not fit quite the same:


So I need this:


Just 7 days to departure!

After reading about expecting water, I decided to extend the breather on the TC and Tranny. I had done the Diffs a while ago. Tied them all to the same reworked breather per Georges write-up near the brake booster.

If you haven't done this mod, you might look at doing it before you go

George has a bunch of good write-ups I have followed. The Supercharger, Subtank, Snorkle and he sells some cool LED lights. He is also the one who makes the ECU for the subtank.

Click the back to home page link to see the other write-ups he has
