    Without a trailer I drive it on the street to the trail...normally a 2.5hr drive at highway speeds. Bias ply wouldn't be the best.

    Sooooo....how did ^that happen? Don't see many tires complete separate the bead from the sidewall like that. There isn't much sidewall on a radial Irok, eh?

    with a properly balanced bias tire you will not notice much if any difference from the radial

    Tree root grabbed it, punctured it and I kept spinning because I didn't know I was caught on a root. Can opened the tire. I should have taken a different line but made the mistake of trying momentum before crawling and now I reap the consequences.

    Shitty deal! Pretty sure there's a handful of 39.5" iroks in my basements in a 17" rim flavour.

    LOL.

    Well if anyone has any 39.5s lying around that I could use for a spare that would be really helpful. Hell I'll take a 38 too.

    Went wheeling again this week. Just did a little trip to Scotch Line....had some fun doing the side-trails and obstacles along the side. It's really wet in there these days. Plenty of pretty deep water crossings. Also put some new headlights in the Jeep that have integrated indicators...I thought they were pretty cool!








    The HOISTWAGEN made a cameo appearance this trip! No damage either!





    And finally......who tagged the no parking sign at the Timmies in Minden with a WARN sticker LOL!

    So I finally was able to get most of the work done on getting my 4-points in. Would have done 5-points but my special seats from TMR Customs didn't have a cut out for the anti-sub belt. Military seats don't need them I guess.
    So I picked up a set of MasterCraft harnesses, a harness bar, and tabs from TMR.
    Welded in the harness bar.....the welds look like shit...there was a few gaps I had to fill with weld because I suck at notching tube....big time...but plenty of weld and heat so screw how it looks....it will be strong!



    Then it was time for tabs. I decided to weld the tabs to my MasterCraft seat brackets. Not the most ideal, they "should" be to a cage, but I'm not a desert racer or nascar driver. The factory belts mount to the seat and these will be plenty strong and safe enough. Also it allows the belts to move with the seat which makes it safer for people who need to move the seat forward to attain the ideal driving position. Welding flat on the table produced some much nicer welds. I burnt the seat though...stupid cardboard.



    Installed the shoulder harnesses and I was happy to see them in the acceptable range for angle as shown in the MasterCraft instructions.


    Finally clipped the belts into the tabs and voila!

    Ran out of gas on the first tab for the passenger seat. Of course I forgot to turn the gas off after welding last time...AGAIN. So the weld looks shit. I'll have to get some more gas, not until Tuesday WONDERFUL, and go back over it.
    I was able to get my new aluminum fuel filler front GenRight Offroad installed. Looks a lot nicer than the bastardized factory/industrial metal tube thing I had there before.


    So all in all a fairly productive day.....sucks to run out of welding gas on my long weekend off of work but....my own stupidity did it so what can I do?

    Very happy to have harnesses though. The factory belts were pissing me off more and more and were a safety issue and an eyesore with the MasterCraft seats.

    I'd recommend these seats, belts, and even the way I mounted them to anyone. Mounting them to the seat rails with the TMR tabs was stupid easy.

    I think i am going to get one of those gas fillers for mine. i have given up trying to find a suitable setup to take it out the back (I moved my filler door to the rear on mine). The angles are just fakked and i have a feeling it'll constantly burp up and make a mess.....
    RIP OD, YOU'LL BE MISSED.... BUT that's OK 'cuz you've been REPLACED !!!

    It's a no-brainer install. Comes with tons of different sized tube.

    So I added a few gussets from TMR to the harness bar. A pair of their brass knuckles on the top and a regular one on the bottom. Bottom welds came out nicer....the bung from the factory belts kind of f'd up my mojo on the top welds. I'll paint it this weekend....factory colour and be done!

    Been a slow winter. I've devoted most of my hobby time to my other favorite thing:



    But with the help of a good friend I have removed the AX-15 in preparation for the AW4 swap!



    A few tips from my experience....drain the transmission of all fluid before removing it! I dumped pretty much the entire thing out of the rear of the housing onto the floor of the garage dropping it out of the truck. Awesome to clean up...NOT! Look at a picture of the dust shield before you take the transmission out. Note the location of the stupid dust shield bolts. We pulled and rocked and tugged on the transmission for a good 45 minutes before we went and looked at a picture. Saw we missed two bolts, removed them, and it was almost out 10 minutes later. Remove the shifter. It will hit the tub. You will not be able to drop it out without removing the shifter. Removing it while I am holding the transmission up under the jeep is tedious at best lol.

    Money will dictate how fast I can do this but I am counting on it being ready for the May 24 weekend. I am going to be using the fully manual AW4 shifter from RADesigns. It has worked flawlessly in the Blueprint by TMR and means I only need to hook up a few wires. Also gives me full control of the gears which is nice.

    Got the clutch and the last of the manual transmission parts out.







    Now I need to begin the problem of sourcing all the AW4 swap parts!
