I bent my bumper all up while pulling out some stumps. Oh well time to make some new bumpers anf tire carrier!!:D

lol, mine's bent up from playing bulldozer on one of the trails near my place. Big log across the trail, what do I do? Put it in 4 Lo and push!

Mine isn't doing the headlight thing as much, so I'm wondering what's going on now.

Last night, we slapped in 4.56 gears in the rear end! Front gears today!

Freshly chromed T-bars installed later today, rotors are getting black ceramic paint. Hopefully the Vac gauge installed on the A-pillar as well.

I toasted my head unit on Friday night while doing other things behind there (hardwired GPS). I didn't know it was toasted until yesterday (lots of troubleshooting this weekend to determine that). Replaced it with a new Pioneer HU that used the same harness as my 5 year old Pioneer.

That wouldnt be too bad to do.

Today I grounded and reinforced my antenna mount:

Problem is, it took the better part of 2 days to isolate that it's either the head unit, or the secondary wiring harness (RCAs) that were causing the problem (all signs pointed to a bad ground). I managed to locate the harness Stateside but won't be here until after I get back from another trip. Pioneer uses 2 different wiring harnesses these days, one which was identical to the one I already had wired up. Spent time at shops going through boxes to check their wiring harnesses before I decided on a deck. Once I found the deck I wanted, I slotted it into the slot in the parking lot. It was then I realized my grounds were fine and my HU was giving me the problem.

At least I'm set for road-tripping. :)

Got it banned from the mall parking lot somewhere around 2:00 this morning. Now I can't park at the mall until August 8, 2010.
