    Mine just turned 9 months old three days ago. Seeing as he started the manufacturing process about two months before anyone in China had ever heard of Covid I wouldn't call him a covid baby. But he has definitely started life in the thick of it. Was wild going to the hospital in the middle of everything. Really sucked that my wife had tickets to fly to Japan to have the baby set to depart three months before the due date. But her flight was cancelled. So we suddenly had to start making plans to do everything here.

    I'm currently working on putting an explorer 8.8 in my wagon. Seems to be the go to for most people.

    I totally understand the doing things before baby bit. Especially when I was sitting at home for a month or two during quarantine not working and waiting the last couple of months for a baby to pop out. I am gonna shoot you a message I want to ask a question about the front end.

    So I finally made the decision on an axle, picked up an explorer 8.8 with 3.73 gears and positrac. Today we were working to cut off all the old mounts and clean it up to get ready to put on the new spring perches. Just incase anyone was interested in if I am still working on it or not.

    I ended up picking one up like this for about $20US. It just arrived a couple of days ago. Now to get it plumbed in.

    Fuck I was there again today. I didn't think to check this. It's a 91. I could go back tomorrow if you want. Shoot me a message. Do you have my #?

    hello

    Shit I wish I had an IS300 or GS300 to put that in. Would make a fun family hauler.

    Since I'm already on here browsing might as well contribute. Went to the local Pull-a-Part yesterday to see what they had in stock for Explorer axles. Since for some reason all the toyota pickups just disappeared. They had two and one was 3.73 which I wanted. Shouldn't have slept on it. Well found a 94, so drum brake, 3.73 and it has a positrac in it. So would save me some money from having to buy one. Plus it can fit 15" wheels. I don't think 15s fit on the disc brake explorer axles but I'm not sure. Anyway probably going back sunday to pull it then start the work of stripping it and getting it ready for the wagon. Also there is a relatively straight White X8 with blue leather interior that looked to be pretty complete if someone needed something. Someone already pulled the taillights.

    hello

    This is so good. Makes me wish I'd just gotten an X7 instead of X3. Since I can't have the brown truck can I at least get another photo of it. It looks so nice.
  10. Wish the links weren't broken in Lucas' update. But this was a hell of a nostalgia trip.

    That round one looks like a good buy. I'll probably go with that. Now I just need to figure out how to plumb it to the 2J. Seeing as most of that is deleted at the moment. 😂

    Someone once told me to look for Yamaha R1 or something like that, But they just had used something similar on a Honda. But this looks like a good option too. Guess I'll have to start looking and just pull the trigger on one on ebay or something. Then mock it up and and see how I can make it fit.

    Beautiful. Are you running an OEM gastank or a fuel cell? Currently I've got OEM in my wagon of course(I like being able to have the spare tire tucked up in side of it), but I'm trying to figure out what to run for a charcoal canister aka evap canister. Not for emissions reasons because I don't have that where I live, but for fuel reasons. I lose fuel to evaporation and my tank burps fuel if I'm not super careful. Or takes a while to replace all the air inside while I let it equalize. Just wondered if you were gonna run something up front or going with a whole different fuel cell setup as I'm trying to figure out what to use.

    SHIT! I never realized that I didn't come back to this. We had to detour three times for traffic. Drove half way up Louisiana to the nearest crossing over the Sabine river that wasn't blocked. I know people that sat on I-10 and moved like 30 miles in three hours. They took 12+ hours to get to houston that day. Mostly because we had to stop to feed a two month old baby like four times. And I think that probably added at minimum two hours to the trip. But it was wild.
