What did you do to your rig today?

Recommended Posts

That compressor install turned out nice!  Where did you get the waterproof circuit breaker?

Pulled the distributor on the Wagoneer today and took it apart to replace the centrifugal/mechanical advance springs.  I installed a lighter set of springs that will allow full timing advance at a lower RPM.  The pic is a generic photo of the springs.  My first time fooling around with this mod, it did make a difference, but I still need more low end acceleration.  The engine runs amazingly smooth for its age/mileage (~200,000).  The search for power continues.

Long Saturday, did not get the gears fully swapped. Ran into a shim issue on the front. But should have one that will get me the backlash I want by Friday.

Did get the fenders and level kit installed and mounted the rims and tires. This week will be the bed rack swap.

New booty. 

Don't ask what I did to my old booty. 😢

Just to keep me from being totally happy, I managed to ding the quarter panel putting it on. 

 

I also finished sealing off wind noise areas. I can actually hear my tires now. 

Both areas that I addressed were subtle. First was the gasket around the windshield at the top where it meets the frame. I put a very thin bead of flowable silicone on the edge to seal tiny imperfections in the gasket.

 

Then, behind the little plastic doohickeys behind the side mirrors is a piece of foam that doesn't do squat. I pulled both sides off and gave them a liberal coat of 3M weather strip adhesive and then put them back on. 

It's not a Lexus, but it's much better.
