35's. We'll see how they perform. Think it'll climb the logs?

Default More pics

When I got home from work I mounted the Mixer, air cleaner, propane feed tube and installed a new starter.
Another shot of the mixer assembly.

Here is the ARB air locker compressor that I am installing in an ammo box and mounting next to the propane tank.

Here is the T Max EW9000 winch I am running. I am going to wire this into a switch panel into the dash. I plan on using it in thier more than outside any ways.

I am also installing a starter switch and button, so I can do away with most of the steering column wiring.
I cranked it over for a few seconds today. It felt good, first time the engine has turned under it's own power since 2008!!!

I have that same air filter on my pathfinder....but aren't you worried about it getting covered in mud/water?

I'm also taking mine off before my next offroad trip! ;)

I have a K&N air sock that slips over it to prevent water and mud from clogging it. Desert Pre Runners use them alot to prevent crud from getting into the engine.

Well last night I mounted up the fuel hose, set the regulator in it's place and am going to make a bracket to mount it on...but my welder gun broke!!!!! It will not feed wire past the handle, it gets bound up inside so now I have to find a new gun. I want to get it running this weekend. doubtfull though. I am going to put the rear diff back in, add some good fluid and run a new breather hose(the old one was completely clogged). If anyone has an old mig welding gun they want to sell let me know.

Finally getting to work on my rig for a few hours. With all the family stuff, helping a buddy get his rig ready, honey do's, and being too friggin hot!!!!
I finally got the fuel lines ran and pressure relief valve installed. I have some small things to finish on the engine. picking up a Ford Taurus cooling fan this weekend, then filling it with propane and fire it up for the first time in 2 1/2 years!!!!

Here is the pressure relief valve installed under the mounting plate.

Here's the finished tank and hose set up.

Now I just have some finish welding to do and put the rear end back together.

Stay tuned...

yep the other side is worse. I am going to band aid it for this year and over the winter I am going to rid my self of the frame and tube and 4 link the rear with air shocks.

Or wheel it as is until the frame breaks

I haven't wheeled it yet, kind of a shot in the dark. I am the only guy around where I wheel that is running propane. I can't wait to wheel it!!!!!!!!!!
I wanted creepy crawlers sooooooo bad but I could not justify the price at the time.
