10. wire in elec cooling fan

Got some done tonight

The bolts holding the ujoint to the 14 bolt are so chewed up I cannot get two of them off to install my pinion guard. gonna bring my air hammer home and chisel bit to see if I can start to turn them out since beating a socket over them isn't working.

Truck worked AWESOME...

only issues...

the new "extra duty" reman pump that I installed on Monday, apparently when it was reman'd they had to fix the body of the pump and brazed it. It developed a pin hole leak that was spray straight onto the exhaust manifold. So it got removed and we welded the hole over. Also I would randomly slip my serp belt off now and then. I also destroyed my rear driveshaft, and blew the ujoint for the front shaft at the tcase. Both were fixed at camp and was able to wheel the rest of the weekend.

The truck got worked HARD, made alot of climbs I used to think I had no business even trying. And if I haven't already said it 40" LTB's KICK ASS

I have a few vids of some 4 wheel burn outs on some ledges and lots of other vids I will upload later.

Heres a video thanks to XJ4Life

I pulled it after Friday to help keep the temp on the motor down and Friday I had a p/s leak that was getting it on the exhuast manifold, we band aid'd it friday night but I wanted the hood off in case it leaked again I could see the smoke alot quicker. As well my belt kept coming off so it was much easier to just jump out and throw the belt back on.
