I poop in the furnace.
A doubler would make my life much more fun.
I still have the 203/205 setup off my Ramcharger if you want it. I'm not at all motivated to get rid of it though so you may not like my price lol. High angle 1410 yokes alone cost me a pretty penny. :icon_rofl: I have at least 3.5k into that transfer case setup not including my custom shifters and linkage.

Atlas wasn't a thing back then... Well it was, just not cheaper than what you could make with a doubler. There 4 speed cases were like 8 grand if I recall. Average Joe couldn't afford anything from Atlas is all I know.

Yeah the adaptor to add a 203 gearbox isn't cheap. I checked into it... for a triple stick.

We know you could do it, and i think you would look fantastic, with a cybernetic monacle, a plasma cutter on one hand, and a tig on the other,

Then when the inspector came to look at your work, you could just stare at him and say in the most intimidating way. What these welds, these welds are perfect!!! While striking an arc his direction.

Seven of nine was hot as hell....

Did you know she is back in 'Picard'?

So is Q. But given that Picard was responsible for the existence of life forming on earth, how can he die of old age without his partner, the omnipotent Q.

Got the pressure washer out and tried to clean it up. It's much better. But there is still some mud underneath. It would be great to get it up on a lift to wash the bottom. After that, I libed the front suspension and sprayed WD40 on the moving parts of my airline quick connect fittings for airing up tires. It's a real pain when you can't get the hose to lock on the fitting.

I also have a line lock kit on order. Cant help but thing it would be useful when rock crawling. Much cheaper and easier to install than an automatic transmission. I just need to figure out where to mount the solenoid valve.
That's easy. Mount the solenoid valve on the truck.

Here's what happened to my tailgate, and any input on when that color was used year wise so I can keep an eye out for a tailgate would be nice...

Drove it to work. Picked up little kid from daycare. He excitedly said "truck!" for the first time... and many times after on the way home pointing at various things in the cab.

It was cute/hilarious..
