the water pump and belt were changed at 180K. im going to order the kit here in a week or two so i dont get stranded, it has a oroblem with extended crank after being heat soaked, i think it could possibly something with timing belt as the previous owner had a reputable shop change a bunch of fuel system components. going to do and OEM kit mostlikely. homer is awesome! little to small for my taste as im in the big city of anchorage. a lot more to do here

well, big betsy finally came in after 2 months, ordered even before i had a 3rd gen lined up and bought.
IMG_7144
i will do a small how to but i was not into extreme detail with pictures. i will provide the links i had used to help install the bumper.

i started by taking off the bumper. there will be 2 12MM nuts to take of on both left and right fenderwells facing the front of vehicle. after taking those off, i unbolted the 4 17mm bolts connecting the tow hooks on the bottom side of the frame. after that i unbolted the 4 14mm that hold the OEM brushguard to the bumper and had help from another guy remove bumper at my shop i work at. you are left with this.

IMG_7146

you then need to cut the framehorns at the weld, and then grind smooth the weld splatter and weld itself. ive seen people remove this using a cutoff disk and grinder, a plasma cutter, and i chose to use my milwauke corded bandsaw and went right down the frame with perside accuracy. this took me maybe 3 minutes for both sides. I had used a file to smoothen everything out ensuring it would not be easy to cut my hands.

IMG_7151

i had fitment issues with the two front body mounts hitting the bumper support and had to cut a section off the bumper rather than grind more of the frame for better strength. I unfortunately did not capture that but it seems as if sometimes they have clearance issues and sometimes they dont, and i had to.

after making necessary fitment modifications, i bolted the frame support using the 4 17mm bolts you use to take off the bumper and tightened snugly. you then have to look on the bottom side of frame . facing up and see that there is a hole you have to drill. this hole needs to be drilled to 1/2" on each side to fit the long bolts with the sleeve. after that this is what i ended up with.

IMG_7153
IMG_7155

on the last picture i show the gap between the support and frame. from all the videso and threads i have seen people have to fit with a hammer but mine slid in with eas and i have an 1/8th inch gap? i was thinking thats the jigs used to weld the frame could vary and so on so i rolled with it and proceeded. if anyone could shed light i would appreciate it.

you then need to put buffer kit on the bumper and in this case i have a brand new smittybuilt x20 10,000 synthetic winch and installed it to the bumper. i assembled the winch and fairlead, bolting it in via the bolts given in the winch kit and fits with ease; i have seen people with other smittybuilts have clearence issues but i had no issues for whatever reason. due to the control box wires being so short i did not want to but the box in a goofy spot, therefore i had made a custom mound by drilling holes and taking measurements to make it all even. i secured the control box wires onto the winch and tested the winch and verified proper working order. you then install the bumper via 6 medium length bolts. this is how it ended up

IMG_7159
IMG_7158
IMG_7156

unfortuneatly i had to cut the grill in order to fit the custom box mount oh well it looks very clean IMO. i will get pictures later i might go wheeling tomorrow. but anyways let me know what you guys think of the writeup even though it wasnt in crazy step by step detail. these are links i had used to help installation

after doing the last trip there was a rock garden i couldnt get passed because i dont have sliders and i was bound to destroy my rockers/body panels. so i stole dirtcos sliders and made a near exact replica with 2/2 3/16" tubing ive already had. im not on a body lift and dont plan on doing one so i had to mound my sliders to the bottom of the frame plate and im going to weld a top gusset for added strength. this is where i'm at with them:
IMG_7206
IMG_7209

i'm also really tired of not having an air compressor anymore since i sold my pickup, so i finally found a spot where i think i wouldn't compromise space with
IMG_7213
IMG_7216
i made a custom bracket but totally spaced the tank and made a use hold for weight savings in CAD. this is useless now and using just for mockup until i make the final bracket. the only thing im worried about is i think the air line going to tank will be interfering with the panel. i have to remove the cubby pocket unfortunately but im willing to take a loss in order for a gain on a clean install and using good space. let me know what you guys think.

well i finished up my rock sliders using the ideas of Dirtco's using 2x2" 3/16. this is how they turned out and im in love.
IMG_7220

went wheeling to test out how they work. got to test out the new winch on a steeper section i couldnt get up that had a few gnarly ruts.

IMG_7289
finally made it to Eska Falls, Alaska.

IMG_7379

on the way up was fairly difficult with no lockers a bunch of bogs. on the way down was steady up until i hit 2 swamps using a different trail down, and got my world rocked with hidden boulders under the mud/water. didnt get pictures as i was too busy getting winched out from my buddy with the new can-am mavrick.

IMG_7459
but eventually made it to the bottom of the parking lot. i hate mud....... this will be fun cleaning.
