Thanks for the compliment.

Oil pressure and Water temp wires are run by the passenger fender then across the firewall. Then through the FW where the throttle cable goes in. Fuel gauge wire is run down the passenger frame rail.

Currently saving $$$ for a complete front suspension overhaul. my drivers CV is completely trashed, I.E. sitting in the cargo area LOL

Am currently looking for another Trooper to swap all my goodies over.

Got the hood opened over the weekend. Fuse box, power steering and brake reservoir are smashed, surprisingly didnt damage the Rodeo MAF/upper airbox. Went ahead and pulled the headlights and grill to keep them safe from any possible damage.

Got my eyes open for anything but around here if it aint 'Big 3' or Nissan/Toyota its ignored/trashed.
