      changed the shocks in the rear. Noticeably better. They're a little short for my setup, but work good. So I'll have to change the mounts to suit the length better.

      Well it's a sad day here. Pulled the spark plugs, got the water out and started her up and it has a loud knocking sound. So I'm saying my goodbyes. I'm gonna miss this car. Didn't want it to end this way. :(

      I'm not fixing it. I might keep the engine and find a short block for it, and put it in the b2.

      But if I was engine swapping the Navajo, I would put a 5.0 in it.

      I could drop it off at your house. You want it?

      Yes. It's an expensive and time consuming hobby. Too much for me and my current life. So it's kind of similar to when a friend is moving away and you just want them to be happy and do what's best for them.

      So I still have the B2 that I can continue to build a few hundred dollars at a time and still do 90% of the trails I did with the Navajo (just slower in the whoops and lifting more tires in the flexy spots)

      So even with losing the Navajo, I'm still in a better off roading position then a few years ago when I would never go out.

      Makes sense, especially with the need for a new motor. Just a little sad because this thing is a big reason why my truck turned into what it is.
