Oh well. MAYBE I will swap them around before Saturday.

Still think you need to cut every other lug out. Grind a sharp edge on a sawzall blade and go to town...

I'll leave the fronts as they are... with both axles open and only the rears cut, breakage should be minimal.

But, I am out of time. Going to bed now... tomorrow is the night Sheri and I are going out for our anniversary and the bog is Saturday. I may do it real early Saturday. But, I have to get there early to set up my vendors tent.

Got the tires swapped around this morning... new tail light in. Splash flap scewed in up front.

The combination of the tires and the lift... it gets horrible wobble at over 30 mph. Bummer. Gotta take care of that. Wanders pretty bad too, I think its because of needing to be aligned now.

Make sure to roll film to capture the probably uneventful ordeal.

Edit: Oh, I see you did that. Good job.

From this evening.

Looks good if I take the picture immediately after spraying it off.
Amazing what a little water and the correct camera angle can do.




The jack stands are for the tires that go flat. The tires are real dry rotted, so I didnt want them cracking even worse when they go flat.

So, today I decide to look at how I can rework the intake since factory is right at the grill.

Stripped bolts made it a pain to get out. But, it came out.

Bad news... I dont see anything real easy to rework.

Good news... air filter was barely dirty.

Screw it... leave it for now and have some fun!
