If you decide you don't like it, would you sell it? I'd be interested in buying it from you for my Trekker!

Selling is a possibility but I would probably end up using the winch plate as a base for a plate style bumper.

Thanks

So found my winter truck bed weight I have been using for almost 30 years.
Measured it, long enough, 1/8" thicker than I wanted but oh well

Was hoping to use a friend's plasma table but no response to text msgs so decided to take the long route

2 hours or so and 3 cut off wheels later I had a 27x4.25x 1.125" hunk of steel

So my half baked plan is to use this as a spacer to push the winch plate out so I wouldn't have to trim the lower core support and move the AC condensor and and an electric fan. It will also allow me to move the bumper up a couple of inches.
If it doesn't pan out I am out a few hours and some miscellaneous supplies.

Played with the drill press friday, got all 8 holes drilled in a couple of hours, started with 1/8" bit worked up to 1/2" and some thread cutting oil.
adjusted the belt on the drill press to the slowest speed posible, was amazed i only used 1 bit of each size

I was hoping to have time this weekend to see if this half assed spacer/riser idea of mine might work but ran out of time and trying to find M12-1.25 thread x 60 mm grade 10.9 bolts ended up being a stopping point, couldn't find any locally, hopefully my Amazon order will be here wednesday or thursday

OK, still not sure if I am gonna keep the Trekker bumper but had some time to continue the recycle experiment
Here is it with the bumper mounted about 1 3/4" higher


I am thinking extending the bottom tube a few inches towards the fender well might help the looks department.

So one thing that bugged me since I picked this hunk up was that that passenger side door key cylinder didn't work. Had today off so decided to fix it.

Some simple cheap Harbor Freight pry bars sure make removing panels easier

Too lazy to pull the wiring harness

$35 at the local locksmith and I have a working passenger side lock

And nice thing I didn't know, passenger side lock will unlock all 4 doors like the driver's side

Oh if you ever take one of these apartments have a magnet handy, the door handle housing acts as retainer for the little internal door and outer cover for the cylinder. I took the cylinder out from the inside and little parts dropped inside the door..PIAA lesson

Wasn't sure if I was gonna do the whole roof rack deal but this was scored cheap at a garage sale this morning.
I will probably end up extending the factory luggage railso forward for a 3rd cross member

i was checking out Dirtco's 3rd Gen Thread on T4R, and he has me wondering if I can fit this beast into my 2nd Gen:

Its kind of like getting super sick after eating at a restaurant; all your friends might love the place and it might be an isolated case, but your still not going to go back there to find out.

I started looking at dual batteries, I know I could make them fit, but it gets really expensive once you figure in the price of two batteries and the isolator system. So that killed that idea.

So Im stuck with one battery, and I wanted something that I could exchange locally if there was another issue. That pretty much left the Duralast AGM line through AutoZone. I looked through their selection comparing specifications on each model until I said screw it, Im getting the biggest battery they make and stock in my local store!

So I bought a Duralast Platinum AGM H8, or group 49, and as you would imagine the numbers are better than the Yellow Top.

Duralast Platinum/Battery H8-AGM- Read6Reviews onDuralast Platinum #H8-AGM

CA - 975
CCA - 900
AH - 92
RC - 170

Here is the Yellow Top in comparison

CA - 870
CCA - 750
AH - 55
RC - 120

Say hello to my little friend!

I have had great luck with Duralast batteries over the last few years...
