    Major jealous..!

    Although if I had my choice for a sandbox toy...



    Anything else, definitely a trophy truck!

    Only pipe dreams though as there is zero place around me to offer such a playground.

    If it was a dedicated sand toy maybe, but I built the jeep to rock crawl. Taking it to Utah-Pennsylvania - Kentucky - Ontario etc.

    I only go to the dunes once maybe twice a year. I find it boring after a few hours.

    The new trans cooler works well, def. keeps the temps in check better.

    Took the car on a cruise, joined in with Great Lakes Panthers for their summer meet across the u.p. of michigan. Had a great time and more importantly the wife had a great time.

    I think I put 600-700 miles on the car over the course of 3 days. But wasn't without incident. I knew going in that good fuel wasn't easily accessible in the u.p.. 91 was the best 99% of places had. I figured I'd just take it real easy and be fine. Unfortunately my lack of self control got the better of me lol. On the return trip I passed a buddy in his military convoy, and on one of the passing lane stretches I rolled into while driving by his specific truck up to 120 and got some detonation. I developed a misfire about 150 miles from my stop. I drove about 20 miles to the next gas station and pulled off. Removed the plugs and found cyl 7 had the gapped closed. No obvious marks or damage to the strap. I bent the gap back open and reinstalled and made the 150 miles w/o issue. I got home and pulled that plug again and seemed fine. But I got my bore scope out and took a peak in the hole...

    So off came the head. No damage to the cyl wall, and no damage to the head. I was amazed. I still had the last motor I ate earlier this year, so I robbed a piston from that and swapped it on this motors rod and reinstalled. All seems good now. Next time I better just detune the tune to be safer and not rely on self control which I clearly have none of lol. I had $80 into the repair mostly just fluids and one head gasket and head bolts.

    Buddy did tag me in a ad on facebook for the same motor I run (04.5-06 5.3L). So I figured why not. $200 and another spare on a pallet. I'm still off work due to my back injury so I had nothing better to do with my day. SO I went and scooped it up. Currently I have 2 5.3s, another that I was told was a 5.3 but turned out to be a 4.8 (and has a bad cam lobe and lifter, that was supposed to be a good runner), and parts and pieces from two other 5.3's that were hurt or damaged. All less then $800 combined.

    20190802_173104 by Cheapthrillb2, on Flick

    We verified timing on my motor as LS motors are known to have the tone rings slip and give false timing. After verifying mine we found mine was off 2*s. So we revisited the tune and made some adjustments and decided to be on the safe side we pulled a little more timing out just in case I have more self control issues lol.

    I keep a couple of cans of Torco in the trunk of the supercharged Crown Vic in case I find myself somewhere with only 91 octane gas. I had to spend three months last year in Colorado Springs for work so I got a case of the stuff. It makes the exhaust smell funny and it isn't cheap. Not everyone can rebuild an engine out of parts lying around the garage. LOL I'd love to be able to do that again but it isn't in the cards for me. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. Sigh.

    8-Lug trailer to match the 8-lug Jeep. I like it .
    You "feel" the difference because you want to "feel" the difference. Since you just spent money on the upgrade you "have" to feel the difference

    That's my buddies jeep, it just got a 1 ton swap and full hyd steering. We took it out saturday to test it out, he ended up breaking a hyd fitting on the ram from hitting the frame. So I have to clearance the frame more and replace the fitting. This is both of ours on the trailer. We travel around the US together wheeling.

    Took the car out to Gladwin Michigan for "thunder on the strip". They shut down the airport and run a 1/8 on the taxi runway. It was pretty cool, felt very nostalgic.

    I met up with a guy from a local Facebook group for some races. He had a p71 that was pretty well gutted, 150 shot, drag slicks, 4.56s etc hes setup to run 1/8 pretty well. He took me to school at every light lol. I was trying to work on my 60' which I suffer at. Unfortunately they weren't tracking that on the time slips. But the first race I only launched at 1 psi, then the 2nd and 3rd around 4-6 and spun each time.

    Man thatís a short race!!! Repeat after me ďLeave on the last yellowĒ.

    The one thing I can say Iím damn good at. I seem to always come in at .008 on the tree.

    Reeled him in quick though!! Traction must have really sucked as Iíve seen the fender gap on just a 100 shot stock Marauder that I could have put my head in to fill the gap. Iíll have to see if I can find the still of my old Trilogy against Lowbuckmmís 100 shot. The Trilogy fender gap is nothing compared to his.

    Yeah track prep was horrible. They laid sticky down further back from the start line then in front of it lol. And where they wanted us to warm our tires was in the sticky stuff.

    Cool old pic.


    Hoping to get back to the track. But I'm not sure how/when. Local track only has one test/tune this month due to events every other weekend. And I'll be in Canada with my jeep for that test tune. Hoping to go in October before they close. But I might not be the driver, I'll learn next week if I'll be having surgery on my back or not. So I maybe sidelined and may have to get a buddy to drive it and try and get it into the 10s like I hoped this year. Running out of time, this back **** has sidelined my entire summer. Had "grand plans" of trips with the car and jeep all summer that I had to cancel. Could be worse. Take what I can get.
