Homemade custom cell phone mount...no more bouncing out of the holder while offroad

P35 LED relay so no more hyperflash turn signals

Use a small piece of steel. Cut and angled to match contour of dash. Drilled a hole through it and modified a cell phone holder to run a flat screw through its back plate and secured with a nut on backside of the plate. I initially used Velcro to attach to dash but moderate offroading with weight of phone cause it to fall. So now I've removed Velcro and attached plat to dash with small screws.

Very nice! I had the same design idea, but was trying to avoid drilling through the dash. Does it seem strong enough to support the phone with just screws in the dash (I assume the plastic part of it)? I was pondering using some type of inserts to make it a bit stronger.

I should have taken photos and done a writeup...
The phone mount has a rubber washer between it and the plate. Flat lock washer between the screw and internal part of phone holder. Cap screw nut on back side. The rubber washer dampens vibration and any rattle noise. Haven't tested it off road but have driven like a maniac in my neighborhood (hitting pot holes, driving up onto curbs, etc) so far so good. I also put my phone in the holder before installing it and shook and threw it around and it held the phone the entire time. Won't be able to hit trails for a week to really test it ( maybe longer if my UCAs come in, I'd really like to get rid of tire rub).

This phone mount has a rubber back and feet that hold the phone. The side arms are pressure fit and have an angled hug like hand on each side. Small button on the backside spring releases the arms to remove phone.

Replaced my ancient spare tire with a purdy new Wildpeak A/T 3W.

I'd hate to be in the middle of the desert and have my spare fail due to age when the problem could be solved for cheap money.

P.S. Decided to stick with the fugly steel rim as getting an alloy one was just too much hassle.

I let my son drive it to work. BUT, I have an opportunity to buy a '96 Limited tomorrow! I'd love some advice and opinions.

158,000 miles, been garaged. not been registered since 2018 (husband died). used as a vehicle for vacation home. Looks like it has never been vacuumed. Front leather seats torn and hammered. Probably doesn't have service records. Few dings in bumpers but no body damage. Tires have a lot of tread but probably so old they need replacing. Tranny fluid looks good. Oil a bit dirty, airfilter mostly plugged. Very minor surface rust on frame/underbody.

Going to drive it tomorrow and probably make offer. Hopefully all the 4wd systems work including rear locker. taking a creeper to do a thorough inspection.

any suggestions are welcomed! Thanks

I mounted my 40" light bar. I'm very happy with it.

You don't say where. Don't get caught by rust. Check out that frame. That'd be my #1 concern.

As others have said in the past, factor in a grand or two to get everything back up to tip top unless it is documented.

Stealth oil change...

Stealth oil change in a gravel pit. Hate that sh!t but what else to do on the road? I've got it down pretty fast and non-spill so I don't feel too bad about using the space for a while.

Walmart is kind enough to take used oil back so that's one thing taken care of. I wonder what they think of the Amsoil bottles? Hard to pretend I bought it there...

Hey guys I did my own timing belt and all accessories to go with it today! It was original at 265k. Replaced crank shaft and cam shaft seals too.
It took me 2 partial days and could not have done it without the help of Timmy the toolman! I am a female who loves working on this truck! I also cleaned maf sensor and replaced radiator. Going for the 300k mark this year. 👍😎

Sounds like with a little tlc, you have found a good rig! Frame is the bigges issue check the weld spot on the passenger side next to the muffler. Check and see when the timing belt was done and if it has not been done, figure that into your coat to purchase.
