april BS thread

well boys, its still a few minutes before the clock hits april, but i figure i can start the april thread a few minutes early

spent my evening pushing wires around the van, now my engine driven battery charger can connect to the front, rear, or right side of the van, and my jumper cables can also hook up to all of those points. i also got wires run to my winch, so next time i get myself stuck on some easy trail i can just slide it in the hitch, plug in the wires, and go. well, that works if i bring the winch with me anyway

maybe tomorrow i'll get around to installing some tires with actual tread on them, then i'll figure out my work schedule for the week

whats new with y'all

I have welding cable. Well on a limited basis. Don't know if that helps anyone.

Ahh lunch time at work. I could just about fall sleep in the bronco right now.

Anyways pertaining to the other meet thread, I was talking about Sean's computer issue he was having as far as the DEA video goes, that S is pretty funny.

well boys, another day in paradise, and almost another blown tire. driving it today i started getting a minor vibration from the front end, which felt like a tire out of balance. all tires were intact with no sign of having lost any weights, so i swapped out the fronts for 2 of the 16.5s that i got from oddfordjunkie after the meet, and sure enough, the vibe went away.
so i'll be taking the pair of nearly worn out rubbers i pulled off back to the tire shop where i got them, and have them check the balance and for any damage, probably gonna condemn one of them - but it sure beats having it blow out like mine usually do.

i'm thinking about going to the 16.5s all around until they're worn out, but i don't have a spare in that height, and with a locking diff in the rear, i can't mismatch tires on the rear... so i think i might just run the 16.5s which measure 29" tall up front, and keep the 16s that measure 31" out back. keeps the speedo honest and keeps me with a spare that matches the tires on the drive axle.

i'm just damn lucky i didn't blow it up this time around

yeah, i have a few used tire places around here too, but if i can kill brand new tires in 8 months, i can kill used tires in a few weeks. the ones i got from oddfordjunkie were too cheap to pass up, and still in pretty good shape, so i'm breaking my own rule running used tires in the first place.

Well I'm defiantly happy that I'm now able to work outside in the evening again and not have to use shop lights

All kidding aside, it is really nice to be able to come home from work or college and still have some time to work on projects.

Looking good man. At first I thought you had something on the roof of your truck, but then I realized it was the shell station..

yeah, i like that big yellow rack on your roof

and whats that chain hanging down under the center of the door? is that a step to help you get in, or a safety device to catch a broken driveline before you pole-vault?
