Forcing Trey to learn to drive a stick. Everything else around here,including his 110, is an automatic.

Put the britpart one on the trail 90 we just built. Works great. Install requires two 3/16 holes for rivets on the door frame lower rail.

Need to wash the mud off and finish putting it together. Logged about 100 miles this weekend and she's a beast.
Click on the thumb nail three times allowing it to open ea time before clicking again.

Nice looking 90 :thumbsup

Sorry to derail but it looks like it fits that landscape trailer perfectly. No need for ramps either?

Sharp eye. Truck makes it look small. Thats actually a 16.5 ft deck 12k lb rated dovetail car trailer. I have moved 10k double cab 6x6 perenties with it (which are 9 inches wider than a stock D).
The damn 10 inch wide, deep offset Safari Gard rims make the truck so wide I measured it and have less than 2 inches between the side rails. You have to be perfectly lined up or it won't load as there is no turning the tires to correct.
Yeah, not pulling ramps to load this girl.

Thanks for the info. I assumed it was a landscape trailer as I didn?t see the dove tail. I like the rails as it gives another point to attached items to but probably makes it tricky to walk around when loading/unloading. I?d love to get a trailer but no place to put it.

Default Can finally charge my phone

Can finally charge my phone in this thing. This was a fun one. Radio blanking plug was from UK a few on eBay and the cigarette lighter, 2 USB inputs and voltmeter were from amazon. Switch from auto zone. Nice Saturday afternoon project. With wires and connectors and all parts was around $100 but definitely worth it. Always had my radio mounted in the dash so had this big hole in the tuffy. Glad to make use of it

Default Fixed shock

Tracked down a strange rattle and found a front shock bushing dissolving. Replaced and found I had forgotten what a good ride felt like.

Default New Shift & Diff Lock knob

Got tired of the plastic shift knob constantly coming off so replaced it and Diff Lock knob with some quality knobs from EPOC. Very happy with them!

http://www.epcoshiftknobs.com/

I dealt with Jessica. 508-533-2741. Just a note for what I did...Both knobs are 2" round, gloss finish.

I have the LT85 transmission. The shift threads where the knob screws on are 1/2"-20.

My trans box (transfer case LT230) Diff Lock knob is M10x1.5

As usual, somethings are metric and some are standard, keeps it interesting.

They took a few weeks to get them to me since the Diff Lock is a custom job but well worth it to me. Outstanding quality. Paid about $100 for both of them. Maybe you'll get lucky and since they just did the Diff Lock design for me, they should still have the design and you'll get a break on price since it is a custom order. My invoice number was 41271 if that helps.

Let me know how it goes
