    and now i think i have 2 cbs that don't broadcast...
    i think i'll need to get my antenna set. possibly the old antenna damaged the transmitter. then i'd have to get learnin.

    the canoe rode fine on top with some creative rigging and no racking. did some backroad running- need more uptravel.
    the BFG MT tires hold well on gravel and dirt roads. reallly well. a bit noisier than the mtz's but not by much. they are way better balanced than the tiny hankooks' that came on it- thanks to British Bulldog. took out the steering wheel shimmy. entirely.

    there's no airbag disable switch for the passenger side in this truck. i've pulled the airbag 10a fuse. system probably doesnt work anyway. the truck's been in a few crashes 60kmph to the drivers front, 10kmph and 40kmph to the passenger side front (not by me), and couple of wheel dingers. and no airbags have went off. probably doesnt work anyways. now i can use that buld for the dark spot on my speedo, where it will actually be useful...

    a bumper has been acquired, going to see if i can grab some explorer leafs tomorrow. i've got 2 sets of front jeep coils i may try stuffing up front. but i am also starting to think about a solid driven axle. t case later, but something D30 at a minimum . maybe even leafed. i'll see how it sits. 2wd cant satisfy me forever anymore.

    got explorer leafs.from a V8. they came with an axle for the jeep too...
    i've already started prepping them. had to pull the mudders off for the jeep again. it'll look mighty funny with a 4" lift and 25" tires. hope to have the 30's back on soon.

    Looks like i need to get spring hangers and shackles before the leafs go in. slow, drawn out build...
    at least it's on the mudders again.

    and back on the little tires. put enough k's on it today xmas shopping, it self-cleared the trouble code. gotta love self-fixing trucks. this truck likes to stretch it's legs from time to time.
