Haha that would be really awesome! I definitely think something like that would be really neat since I don't see much desert. How would one do such a modification? Is there a good website?

I got an O2 sensor replaced. Now I can happily say that I don't have a "Service Engine" light on anymore. Which makes me feel better.

I also had my mechanic put my brush guard I bought off of the Letgo app. It was from an old Dodge Dakota. So I couldn't just bolt it up. He had to heat bend it to fit.

Unbeknownst to me, this brush guard was warped. Probably the last owner hit something and I couldn't really tell until it's been put on the truck. When I bought it it looked straight. The mechanic bent it up as much as he felt safe but it's aluminum so he didn't want to ruin it. I might try bending it up some too, but i doubt I can fix it.





I'm happy with how it looks for the most part! From the front though you can tell the passenger side isn't straight.

Here's a straight forward picture and some up close pictures of where I had him cut the body for braces and bend the arms to attach to the frame. It's bolted on.













Next thing I'll have done is put my winch on. He didn't have any metal to install it yesterday. So when he gets a plate made ill go back and have the winch on, then I'll take a break from upgrading the truck. The past few months alone I've spent almost what I paid for it in upgrades. Bleh, don't want to think about that haha.

A question for anyone who has had an LSD rear differential for a long time:
---Does the LSD wear out? And how long?

When my truck was up on the lift last time I spun the rear driver, and I was expecting the passenger side tire to spin the same direction, as it is supposed to. To my surprise it spun the opposite direction. >
I saw one an old post saying one went out after 30,000 miles. Mine is wayyy past that. I think I'm at 159k miles. Does it sound like mine could have worn itself out?

What would you do? I don't want another one wheel squeal truck again. And I don't have the money for an ARB locker, which sounds awesome, or a 4x4 SAS which would be the dream option.

Thoughts are appreciated!

You could find someone who has a vinyl cutter who could do a custom decal. I have a friend who can do that. Not sure how much he'd charge. But imagine "jungle" written in the same font as JP. He made a decal for me years ago for my old frontier, lasted several years. Good considering the decal had lots of fine lines that held up incredibly well.

Late reply but might as well... If your truck is up in the air and it is not in neutral and you spin one tire it will spin the other in the opposite direction because the drive shaft can not move. When you put it in neutral with both rear tires off the ground it should spin the drive shaft and both tires should spin the same. Im over 182k miles on mine and its still working fine and I have abused it on dirt roads for years so I know it has gotten lots of use. Even with the LSD you might get a bit of tire squeal before the clutch pack in the diff engage.

Wow! I didn't know that. Thanks, this gives me hope haha. I wasn't sure if my LSD was gone of not. I'll give it a try next time I have my truck up in the air the way you said it. I'm very thankful for the reply, it's never too late haha. Thanks nthorn!

I wasn't sure but I know I can still kick up rooster tails last I checked (or whatever you want to call them) with both tires and not just one tire like my old Ford Ranger.

Haven't been able to do much and won't be able to for a while because of money. Had some unforeseen personal travel due to holiday family fun and also unfortunately family passing away and went back and forth from Florida, South Carolina, back to Florida, up to Georgia, South Carolina once more, and back to Florida. Also visited Massachusetts by plane. So all in all I have negative money left (bills and credit card). So once I am back on track I'll do my next mod. Not even sure what that is yet but I'll just wait and see haha.

Oh, I almost forgot to say that I have broken both of my roof lights. This is both a sad happenstance to me, and a prideful accomplishment because it means I now have to replace them, but also means I finally can say I have a tall truck. Haha.
I was backing into my girlfriend's parents' house with their Christmas tree in the bed. I have parked in their carport before and had no problems. But now with all my lift I apparently am too high for the carport, and smashed both of them. One is actually shattered missing glass.
So unfortunately and also fortunately I have to upgrade once I am able to. For now I put the plastic covers on them until I'm ready. I'm going to rewire it for LEDs when I do upgrade. That's my plan anyway.
Also I think I fried my trailer wiring harbess/circuit with a bad trailer. Constantly pulled power until the wires were hot then I smelled electrical smoke and saw the little black box smoking so I pulled the plug. Happened today. Still mad about it but I'll figure out what to do.


Happy New Year to all!!!
