Getting the Wheeling Fever
Thanks Richard, I like the way you dive into modifications and make it look a lot easier than it really is. That inspires me to keep going deeper with my own plans.

I drove around 23 hrs straight going to pick up a '89 V6 Raider w/ extra rolling frame and drive train around Austin TX a couple of weeks ago, but things didn't work out and I came home empty handed.

I've currently got my eyes on a '89 SWB Raider ($500) with the 3.0 V6 and a '96 LWB Montero ($400) w/ lockers front and rear and the 3.5 V6. The '89 is in NM and the guy is supposed to make arrangements with me to pick it up this weekend. It's about a 9hr drive for me one way, hope it doesn't fall through also. The '96 is mine, I just have to figure out how to get it to Kansas. It's currently down by Brownsville TX and that is a mighty long trip. I may have to take a week off this summer and see if I can't get it picked up.

I wish I could find stuff closer but just haven't had any luck up to this point. But oh well, it's like my grandpa told me "Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do!" and "You don't have to like it but that doesn't mean you don't have to do it!".

I ALSO want to THANK ChadZ for helping me out getting the "Installing LED Lights in a Ground Switched Circuit" PDF reduced in size, so it can be posted for everyone to critique.

I really appreciate it guys,
LLT

Well ChadZ fixed me up with a PDF file I can finally post for "How to Wire LED Lights".

Hope I didn't make it to confusing and it helps out.

Getting the Wheeling Fever
Haven’t posted for a while so thought I’d check in.

Been busy with work and another one of the boys projects. He bought a 74 K10 short wheelbase step side and it’s gonna be a great truck when it’s done. Notice I said “when it’s done”, I just hope we get it completed before he gets done with high school, that gives us 3 years.

Took HAGAR out for a run last Saturday for better than 8hrs and he conquered it all with ease. Outdoor temperature was in the high 80’s with no problems going 25-35 all day. Even found a fair amount of mud for him to wallow in like a little piggy and he pushed right through.

Hope everyone is doing well during this trying time.

Stay healthy and happy,
LTUX

Wow, don't know when I last posted. Been a while. Looking to get back into it.

What is your wife's budget for a turbo swap? I have all the parts and then some. If you search OLD posts from early-mid 2000s you find a bunch from me. My rig from then isn't road worthy any more. I would love for my stash to go to someone who can put new life into them and another rig. LMK if you are interested.

Ride On,
