Howdy yall! Start of another week. Was a good weekend. Quality time with kids and spent a lot of time outdoors. Got my old trans dropped and am now ready to pull the old motor this coming weekend. Finally seems like things are shaping up to get my Samurai back in the road. The farther along I get the more excited I am. Still have some hurdles before I am done but forward progress is good.

Know the feeling, been making really slow progress on the stock Samurai. I did get the engine and trans installed yesterday though. Just need to finish the wiring after I get a couple of fenders for it.

It was warm enough to spend an hour outside I jump started my old Camry, going to try and trade it for a moped.

I got my battery put back in my Samurai. I think the cheapo Walmart radio that I installed last summer is parasitically draining the battery. I pulled the fuse, let's see if it can sit for a week without a dead battery. As for my tires, I haven't test fitted them yet as first my work truck needs its seats installed first (after new upholstery). The wheels are Ford wheels, but don't know any more than that.

Thinking probably going with just some 3" Trail tough lift springs. I really don't plan on crazy rock climbing, or large tires, plus, I really don't want to go through all the work for a YJ setup. Just swapping four leaf springs is so much less work (and cheaper) that I think that's the route I'll go.

I put Ford pickup aluminum rims on my tintop. The bolt pattern is correct but I had to mill out the centers to clear the hubs. Those are 235s but it had a shackle reverse on it when I got it.

I think the ford aluminum wheels are semi hub and lug centric.  Even on my ford truck the aluminum wheels fit pretty snug but the steel rims just flop on there.

I also got Ford wheels  off of a 1/2 ton 4X4  bolted right  on  no problems maybe they were cut larger  for locking hubs.

Coldest night in the new house last night. Single digit negatives. Lots of popping and banging from the roof.

Crazy how much less people are posting without a prize - I thought I'd still be checking in more for some reason. I still reach for my phone every once in a while thinking I should post out of habit lol

Anyone have a light plow on their sami? Not really wanting to but will need one either for that or something for my Toyota front hitch

If you do find a plow please post a picture.
