      I'd give you the right of way with that guard on the front of that truck.

      Not a lot has happened with the truck. I upgraded the fuel pump and pressure spring in the throttle body. I put tailpipes back on the truck, because I got tired of the drone in the cab. I can hear myself think now.

      Drove the truck to my girlfriends house in eastern Missouri earlier this month, and I’m quite surprised how it drove.

      Given all the power I have, keeping my speed between 60-65 mph, I’m getting 15.5 mpg. That’s not bad for a well built truck with 250 pounds of bumpers (combined weight) on each end.

      I had the truck aligned in August after I replaced the steering gear box and steering shaft, it tracks straight down the road like it should.

      Still no serious updates, I have relocated from NE Oklahoma to SE Missouri.

      I have however gathered most of the pieces to do a 95-98 dash swap. That will be the next undertaking, my first Z71 was a 97 with the dash style I speak of, and I just really prefer it to the dated square dash I currently have. People will ask how come I didn't buy that style to begin with? Because 99% of those trucks were automatic, and I don't do automatics in trucks, so I took what I could get when I landed my current 5 speed truck, plus my late grandmother helped buy the truck for me, so there's sentimental value there.

      heck yeah the little dude is a helper!
      I'm loving this truck and thread, thanks for sharing :)
      FYI two gallons of Monstaliner with all the things needed to roll it on runs about $350, with the $$$ you put into Rustoleum or Duplicolor or whatever you can have Monstaliner

      Yeah little man LOVES to be outside, I figure I will have him turning wrenches before long.

      I hadn’t heard of monstaliner before, thanks for the tip. If I calculate all the liner material I bought, I might have $300- $350. I probably have two cans in the bed. The can in the picture wasn’t empty, so there’s still some left. I have brushed it all over my truck several times, over the years. The bottom is gloss black spray paint, and the grey is charcoal grey gloss rustoleum spray paint.

      @410Fortune

      I’m also back in a first generation explorer again, and I hope to finish what @red.EDDIE.4x4 started, so if you’re interested keep your eyes peeled for the updates.
