Acceptance is the first step, or so I'm told. :roll:

Well, I got over that quick.

Now for some pictures...

Here's what I started with:



Had a fender bender when I got it:



Hence, the need/want/addiction suppressor:


(Better pictures to come, it's few and far in between when we here in the PNW get a decent day)

Afterward, I decided to do some investigating regarding some steam leaking form a junction here:



And ended up getting into the engine this far:



A slightly less distorted picture due to less breath from it being ridiculously cold outside...



I replaced all top end intake related gaskets, including the thermostat to block housing gasket, and of course, the head coolant crossover hose as well as the upper radiator crossover pipe o-ring in back of the engine.

Now, no steam whatsoever, the engine heats up quickly and stays at temp like a champ, and the coolant system stays at a really good high pressure now! :D

Just some random video funness...

Yes but, unlike other programs, the end goal is not to be weened off your addiction. Instead now that you have stated & accepted it you can further seek assistance in feeding said addiction. :wink:

Well your moving right along with mods. I love that ARB, and i really want a Trooper LS just like the one you have (loaded with options!).

I like the ARB. looks good and i am sure draws some looks.

:shock: look at those snowflakes! and uh....new tires? :twisted: :twisted:

They're 16's, and I got them from 2 different sellers off of eBay, 2 from New York, 3 from Alabama. :p

Yah, I love the mirror fold button, makes people think: "I thought only luxury cars had that!"

Can't afford tires for another month, going to lift it first :D

Cool. I've been trying to scare up 5 16" snowflakes with no luck. Mind sharing how much those 5 wheels cost, all told? I wouldn't be offended if you said "non of your beeswax"

I paid $60 each for 3 of them shipped, and $75 each shipped for 2 of them. Probably too much but I wanted them...
