Tell her to get back in the kitchen and make you a sandwich...Just Kidding
I have an engine hoist here at the house that you could borrow, but it would cost less to rent one than the gas to come get it, and bring it back.
Saying things will ban me to the camper for sure, and sense it's in Lancaster being fixed, I'll pass.
I just need to go buy a hoist. My dad has one too, but I think he's worried he will not get it back
Only because have my tools are still at you house! Lol
Only thing I have is the miter saw, which I have offered to send back many times.
So just like when I was a little boy, when I should be sleeping, I'm playing with my cars
Navajo Working Tailgate
Navajo gate by Stic-o posted March 10, 2018 at 1:04 AM
But now you'll have to carry that chips box around with you everywhere.
I have to add the cables still goof Besides you can never have enough chips on the trail
The gate also works just like a traditional pick up gate, where it is removable in about 2 seconds. I don't think we'll see a rash of stolen Mazda Navajo tailgates on the black market though.
That is awesome!
Yeah, just like when he was a little boy, he was always taking something apart, like the clocks, the tv, etc!!! Lol
That tailgate is awesome!
Picked up a 94 Sport 4x4 for dirt cheap today. Bought it for the manual transfer case and linkage. It was actually cheaper the just a case.
I'm going to pull what I need, and Zukman will be parting it out, if anyone needs anything.
Is it running?
Negative, blown head gasket. We could not get it to kick over, so there is something else electrical or the alarm is on. Not sure. We got it for a parts truck. Sad part is, the body is perfect. But I'll probably keep the doors for spares and cut out the quarter panels. Seats are better than the Navajo, but the door panels and dad are toast. 214k on it.
UPS man brought another gift today. This one also from the hard to find pile.
Complete set of grill, and lights. Not a chip or scratch. Taillights look almost brand new. Just need a clean up, but impressive condition after 27 years in the heart of country.
Is that MAZDA or MADAZ! ?
I assume this ain't gonna be a road worthy truck, so why keep the heater box? Turn the AC compressor into an air compressor, pull the condenser for a big trans cooler, and pull the HVAC box under the dash for some additional storage.
Actually it is. Probably more so then JP. JP is a circus to drive. I would probably drive it more on the street if it wasn't for the paint job.
And think about it, a open vehicle with no heater. ...that doesn't sound fun. A/C I can probably live with out, but why not if it works. Canvas top will probably be in the future.
I actually think I can get the full 4 wheel ABS to work with the SD axles for the street
To make the motor swap easier, I have been thinking a lot about removing the radiator support. Just drill out the spot welds, and weld or maybe even just bolt back in after. This would possibly avoid any cutting of the engine cage.
I wish there was a nice way to "un-bolt" the entire front clip. Inner fenders and all. It just would make life so much easier at times.
Look Maa! No Chip box
Say, what are you going to use that wiper/washer fill hole and plug for? I've got that in my 99 truck(93 body), and it looks so good that rubber plug there, I wonder what I could do with that?
12 volt outlet might fit. I've been meaning to check
I did consider locating mine there too, but I chose the vertical area because mine is running a strobe light full time. I figured water would get into it less likely there. I think you could put one behind the fill plug, for use not when raining. I also wired mine with 30amp wiring and fuse, to run a cheap compressor if needed.
