For the record - I'm the dork narrating - my buddy is driving it - He is about 200 lbs lighter than me - so I figured I should do the pushing -
Reverse doesn't work for sh!t -
Got everything unbolted on the side of the house - now just need to lift the tub off the frame.
"the glove is gonna pop like a zit?"......
what are you talking about?
That wheel/tire combo is hella G dude!!!
Those new 27" megga muds look killer.
for years i would ask my wife to push me around the block when i was doing my restore. She never did so i would just sit in the seat and make motor noises.
thats funny man! You got to take brakes to have a little "none too serious fun" like that in the middle of a porject.
I ziptied a latex glove over the steering box return line - I pulled the pump but left the box - it was spilling fluid but the glove contained it - but got pretty full pretty quick
I can't believe YOU are making fun of MY wheel & tire combo - I'll take it from Greg - but you - you're just a friggin newbie
This made quick work getting the Blazer up the driveway to the side of the house... Embarrasingly enough, the wife's rig is the one with the winch - that makes a hella lot of sense huh? Here's a pic at my grandpa's rock quarry in Coos Bay...
Oh and just for fun - here's a pic coming down from Mt. Hood last winter
That cracked me up. Sure is a quiet rig
so how long before the winch ends up on your rig?
Thats because you didn't invite me over to go for a ride.
Well you see... I sort of have a line on winches... Might say it's an "employment benefit."
what are you doing to the blazer anyways Ben?
getting ready for a 383 TPI IIRC
yep - Jeff you're right. Frank (BurbinOr) hooked me up with his engine builder that built him the TPI'd 406 a few years back. I'm saving up my money right now to be able to afford him - and while doing so I decided to powdercoat my frame, core support, inner fenders, etc...
Probably will rebuild the T350 & go through & re-seal the 205 as well - good Winter-time projects.
I was hoping to get the tub off the frame today - but it didn't happen - woke up and the Expedition had a flat - so that consumed most of the morning - and then the whole family went costume shopping for the 3 year old. Oh well... Hopefully tomorrow
