  • Conundrum: lol, they're contagious and more lights coming on, worrying to see the oil pressure indicator and also the windshield washer fluid lights, however I'll just wait and see if it goes away when things dry out. Good thing I took it through emissions this morning. Never Fails. lol

  • Conundrum: Wow, with all the rain I've been in as well as flooding in the X on Fat Tire, I have a new issue. Set light blinking rapidly and goes away after restarting the engine. I did a little research and I guess the cruise actuator can get nasty and seems plausible since I went through a puddle on purpose on the right hand side and that made the set light for cruise start flashing again. I'll check it out after the rain stops. lol Have fun and be safe out there everyone.

I did it all myself, knowing what I know now it is doable in a day.  First attempt it took me longer as I fought everything.  I'd start spraying the leaf spring bolts with liquid wrench now.  Also, I've learnt to do the AAL on the truck, just use clamps/jack to hold the spring together while you remove the bolts then back it off.  Remove the overload spring, add the leaf.  I got a longer center bolt to get it started, if you can find one fully threaded you can cut off the end, if not use clamps once it maxes out and switch to the bolt it came with.

I'm not afraid of heat, I've been inside a steel furnace. Way hotter.

Heat doesnt really bother me. Esp when it comes to working on my rig. So if someone wants to host and can get a couple guys on a day I'm free I'm still game.

I don't get all the "man up" comments, and "heat don't bother me"  give me a break.  I did my mod by myself in early May, at around 90-100 and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.  At 110 by yourself is just miserable, if not out right dangerous.  You're talking about suspension components, pre loaded with hundreds of pounds of tension and making bad decisions under the heat of a Phoenix summer.   It would be one thing if we could get 3 or 4 guys to show up at 6AM and get it knocked out by noon.  But only one guy volunteered to help and I can't be there most of the morning.  Hopefully some of you guys volunteer to go up and help a fellow AZXC member install his lift in Prescott.

I think one of the things he was pointing out about doing it in Prescott were the tools. If I have a set date, I can get the day off, and bring the tools I have, but I definitely don't want to be the only one heading out there because my tools are no where near enough.

All in all, mod day went well and we knocked it out with two people within 4 hours with mostly hand tools. Next is getting my new rims fitted with bigger tires!

Good to hear, 4hrs with 2 people is probably faster then I could get it knocked out.

Three people, but still, everything went as planned. I forgot to add, that I just got some Off-road trim level wheels from Masaru and I mounted them to some 285-75-R16 Kuhmo Road Venture A/T's, and I'm living it!

On another note, I'm going to be back down in Phoenix within a few weeks to pick up my low-pro roof rack from whattha when he finishes it, and I'm going to need to paint and install it, as well as my KC lights, and wire it all in, and put some gear up there. So maybe if we could schedule another mod day for other members too in one weekend in late July, that would be rad!
