Now get that big throttle body in there, and rig up that cowl induction, I want to know what kind of improvement you see.

I like the black look but I aslo have a bunch of other rims and tires still. this afternoon I replaced the rear leafsprings. The ones that were on there were totally shot for a 7400 pound truck. The ones that I put in are 91 v30 rear springs, so they have all of the little shims and wear pads inbetween. I snap some pics in the morn,its was dark by the time I finished it up and drove home. It rides so much better and quieter now.

Thanks for bringing this up. I'm working on a 71 suburban. I've had it on my to-do list to talk to you about some bumpers.

Extended the rack put the tire over the passenger and added a few lights. Kinda going for that Camel Trophy look.

Fabricated a 6 gallon solar shower. It’s pressurized by the on board air compressor and controlled with an air switch with a pressure regulator. This will spray at full pressure for 4.2 minutes has a garden hose fill up adapter and soon a instant hot water propane attachment.

Those are cool but I think they’re main purpose is to keep the dang thing closed while you bomb down dirt roads at unsafe speeds. What I would like to do is use 2 big car roof travel bags and trunk organizers. This will net me the maximum storage with full waterproof covering.

55 watt solar panel with solar charge controller. The mount allows me to aim it to the sun.

Very nice Smash! Make sure to use stainless hardware against the aluminum solar panel frame.

Nice row of lights up top, but looks like a hassle to remove the middle covers..., lol. All u need now is a kitchen sink.
