    I'm in the process of rebuilding the knuckles on my cruiser right now. That'd probably be enough to talk most people out of owning one. Not a difficult job, but probably the dirtiest thing I've ever done to a vehicle lol

    So I've had a bit of a gas leak around the tank for some time now

    It started off as a smell when filled, then after time started a mild drip when filled, then eventually got to the point when I filled it past 3/4 tank, it would drip

    For the past few months, I've been filling her up about 1/2 tank (which is just enough to get me to work and back lol)

    New tanks are uber spensive and I didn't want the downtime of welding mine, so I picked up a used one from the local bone yard for a $100 bucks and had it boiled, sealed and pressure tested

    Finally got a chance to throw it in today














    No more smell, no more leaks

    The MAF extended range tank looks great



    but not $1400 great

    Besides, there's a gas station on every corner around here, so there's no reason to load her up with gas and make her heavier than she already is

    So I've been putting off replacing a leaky rear axle seal for a while now

    It was a minor leak (in fact, there was no drop in level when I checked), but after a long shift at work last night, I decided to pop into the shop and just get it done

    Like an idiot, I followed the FSM's instructions and tried to remove the ABS sensor

    Thing is, unlike the front axle, there's no reason to remove the rear sensors

    Ended up snapping the mounting bolt

    With no room for an extractor bit, let alone a drill, I was pretty fucked

    I'd have remove the entire backing plate in order to get it from the other side, but I was too lazy for that and just drilled through the plate and installed a bolt and nut

    Blew an air line fitting for one of the horns last week

    Apparently, the cheap plastic fittings don't like 200psi lol

    Replaced it with a much better brass inlet fitting

    So a few weeks ago I had her up on the lift for an oil change and noticed one of the Air Lift bags went to shit

    No big deal since I haven't been using her for towing lately, but now I'm currently looking into lift kits

    Thinking a 2.5"-3" lift with heavy coils since I'm running so much extra weight, but damn are these things super spensive

    Just had the 2.5" Old Man Emu medium kit put on the wife's 01 LX470 and all the AHC shit ripped out. Pretty happy with it overall.

    Faulty VSS (probably from all the water crossings I've done lol)

    New OEM is $180, but FleaBay aftermarket is only $9 bucks

    Tried one of the cheapies and it worked for one day

    They sent me another and it was DOA (no signal at all)

    Put the first one back in and it seems to work after a few miles

    Asked for another, but seller sent a refund

    Picked up a used OEM unit on the Mud forums but it was also DOA (think it was from a flood car cause it was filed with whitish oil.....seler sent refund)

    Tried all the local salvage yards, but no luck, so gunna try another cheapie from EBay that looks a little more like the OEM unit and see what happens

    Since my XB got wrecked, she's my daily until I can pickup another beater....

    I'm way too cheap for that

    After 4 defective FleaBay units and 1 defective used OEM (pulled from a flood car), I picked up another used one from a Mud member parting out his LX and my speedo is working again

    Currently at 427,xxx according to the OD

    Didn't drive her since last week and forgot the dome light on

    Got in her yesterday and the primary battery was dead, but secondary kicked in for an emergency start, so I just put plugged in the primary to my AGM charger and she was good to go again

    It's 35* and I'm heading to the beach for a little cruising

    Took her out to the Point for a little cruise yesterday





    Closes at the end of the year, so I probably won't be hitting the beach again until April
