Used an angle grinder with a wire wheel and a drill with a plastic wire wheel. It's a pain it the ass for sure. I zip tied the wires and hoses and had them pulled back with a small bungee cord to keep them out of the way. The hard brake lines above the frame got moved by loosening the fittings and twisting out of the way. Made a lot more room to work but it was still a *****. There were a couple small spots that couldn't get bare metal so I just burned right through it.

Thanks - I've pulled brake lines, zip-tied electrical; guess i'm going to the hardware store to look at wire wheels.

I do a lot of rust repair on old 911s, and I don't usually have this kind of prep issue - didn't see that coming!

Over the weekend we went up to Big Bear to cruise around Burns Canyon area for the day and then headed over to Pioneertown to a little country western saloon for dinner called Pappy and Harrietís. It was supposed to be an easy 2wd friendly run since we have a beginner off-roader in our group and I had my 3 week old son. Well that didnít quite go as planned when we came up to Heartbreak Ridge and Pontiac Sluice trails. I got designated as the leader of the group and since I never been on those trails before, I decided ď**** it! Letís check it out!Ē. The newbie did really well and my son didnít seem bothered. AssBurns 2000 Limited Build Thread These trails are pretty cool. We went down Heartbreak Ridge which is the easier direction it looks like. Iíd like to check it out again going up next time. Neither of these trails are very difficult but they have a ďDifficultĒ rating. Turned out to be a really fun and relaxing day with a good group of people. Dinner was great as well. Iíd definitely recommend checking Pioneertown out. Pappy and Harrietís has some good country western bands play on the weekends, so that is something cool to check out as well.


The rolled Pontiac that the trail got named after.

AssBurns 2000 Limited Build Thread

So a few of you guys already know I’ve been working on doing the F-150 gas tank swap. It’s finally finished, well 98% finished. Still need to button up a couple minor things but overall, it’s done. I’m going to do a more detailed write up in another thread so my build thread doesn’t get sidetracked and all the info can stay in one spot rather than scattered here. I’ll post a link here when I write it up.

Here is the link to the write up on the tank swap. Fuel Tank Relocation Thread Post #90-92


The reason for the swap was mostly for belly clearance since I constantly smashed my stock tank. Instead of just building a skid, might as well eliminate the problem. Another big thing that I liked about the relocation was to make room for an eventual 4-link upgrade. The tank being in the rear will hopefully settle the rear suspension a little more evenly and lower the ride height a little too. Also no more drive shaft contact with the tank!

So to get started I got an auxiliary (rear) fuel tank from a 1990-1996(I think) Ford F-series truck. Initially it didn’t fit between the rear crossmember and bumper because of the way I tucked my bumper up and in so much, so the only option was to cut the bumper back. Didn’t like that option, but wasn’t that big of a deal. Also had to cut the spare tire mount crossmember to make overhead clearance.



Next I started working on mounting the tank.




Once the tank was mounted it was time to work on a skid plate.




Skid plate done with a fresh coat of primer and paint.



Then came the wiring and plumbing. This was by far my least favorite part of the whole thing because I couldn’t just “make” what I needed to make it work. I had to buy a few different size fuel lines and buy fittings to reduce the fuel line to the Toyota factory size. This meant multiple trips to the hardware store. Also fuel injection hose is much more expensive than I thought. Measure twice!

Some finished shots.


Lost a little bit of clearance here but not much.





So much room for activities!




Overall this project took much longer than I initially expected but hopefully it will be worth it in the long run. For anyone considering this project, I’d say think about what you are looking for in the long run and if you actually need to relocate the tank for what you use your vehicle for.

AssBurns 2000 Limited Build Thread

Took a couple trips up to Big Bear area over the weekend and ran a few cool trails. Initially we were supposed to camp and just hit all the easy trails and explore the mountain some more. Unfortunately there were high chances of thunderstorms all afternoon and night, so the wife wasnít feeling it with the babies. We were just going to go up for a day trip on Labor Day. Last minute Saturday night I got invited to go up with a Jeep ZJ group at run Dishpan Springs and Holcomb Trail. Still havenít been able to make the main line on The Waterfall on Dishpan. Sunday was raining so the waterfall was full of mud and water. Even some guys on 39Ē stickies were not having an easy time. Had to take the bypass route after a few attempts. After Dishpan we ran Holcomb. Iíve been trying to take harder lines more and more but I got stuck a couple times doing that. Having a low ride height is only nice when your not rock crawling. One spot I got high centered on my t-case and had to hi-lift myself up and off the rock. Just as we were getting to the last little obstacle of Holcomb there was a Jeep with a broken truss that couldnít drive without his axle twisting and had a broken front driveshaft because of it. We had to wait there for over three hours for that guy to finally get out of the way. Met some cool people and drank a few beers with everyone. It was a great time to be stuck, but didnít get home till midnight though.
For Labor Day the we were supposed to just do easy trails but since some of the less capable rigs backed out, we ran Dishpan Springs again. Still didnít make it up the main line. I need a locker up front. After Dishpan we just cruised around the fire roads up there then eventually ran half of White Mountain up to the peak. We would have done the whole thing but we ran out of time. We all had a great weekend with no major trail damage. I did smash my CB antenna mount somewhere on the trail and I think I broke my transmission mount too.

Sounds like you might want to do what I did with my trans mount...
I swapped out the rubber block with some captive poly bushings. Made a huge difference in the amount it moves.

I was planning on just getting the Trail Gear Bomb Proof Mount but that is a much cheaper option. Iíll probably copy yours now. Thanks for the idea!

Nice job on the tank work. I missed that post the first time around.

As far as taking harder lines goes, I already want bigger tires. Either that or the current rig stays as is and I pick up a mid 80's truck and build a beast. You know, the kind of beast that isn't a daily and you don't mind breaking it when you need to. 38's would be nice. Twin sticks. Custom axles. Then drop a 5.0L in it. That kind of rig. I need to get another job but pipe dreams are nice to have. lol

4x innovations sells a set of bushings that would work perfectly. I think they are like 20 dollars shipped. It's listed on their builder parts page
