Wow, I cant believe its been a month since I’ve posted, but this is my busiest time at work. July is the time we harvest our wheat, peas and canola. Once I’m done with my normal farm duties, I then harvest wheat with my life long best friend on his farm. As of now, weContinue reading “Time for some catch up”

Thoughts from the cab #3.
Here we go. It was just made public that the Panhandle Overland Rally in Sandpoint Idaho is a go, I repeat, a go. The date is October 1-3rd. Of course, I bought my tickets right away since I believe they are capped at 500. The most exciting thing about this is that now I haveContinue reading “Thoughts from the cab #3.”
Last time hitting the pipe, I swear.
Finally, after way to long, the exhaust is done. From the headers to the tail pipe, done, for now. I finally broke down and ended up buying 90 and 45 degree pipes and just building my own tail pipe. While yes, I’m quite happy how it came out, its a bit too loud, according toContinue reading “Last time hitting the pipe, I swear.”
Tryin’ to give this thing the boots
Tonight finds me in the shop enjoying the do it yourself bed liner in the Bronco. Is it perfect, no, is it better than it was, yes, much better. This finish will be great until I get the floor mat in someday. But now, I can get the shift boots, seat belts, seat brackets andContinue reading “Tryin’ to give this thing the boots”
Finally, and I mean finally, drove the Bronco out of the shop and took if for a cruise. We managed to get the timing closer, Y pipe and muffler on and worked on getting the carb adjusted better. Out of all of it, the carb is still making me mad. This Quick Fuel carb isContinue reading “Outside, finally”
Working out at the “Y” pipe
It’s been a little crazy around here lately and the Bronco has had to sit idle since my last post. Between farm life kicking in to overdrive and having a kid about to graduate high school, my time has been spread. However, I did manage to devote a whole evening and finished the Y pipeContinue reading “Working out at the “Y” pipe”
Thought from the cab #2
Every day, and I mean every day, since 2008, I listen to podcasts. They keep me going every day, they’re always there, very entertaining and sometimes I even learn something. As far as Overlanding podcasts go, I’ve only found a few consistent ones. They are The Overland Podcast, All Things Overland Podcast and Highpoint OverlandContinue reading “Thought from the cab #2”
Hitting the pipe……..with a hammer.
Tonight after work, I continued with the long drawn out exhaust fitment. Finally, I was able to get the Y pipe on, but more massaging is needed. I want this to be perfect, or as near as I can get it, but at this time, the clearances are just not as good as they needContinue reading “Hitting the pipe……..with a hammer.”
Let’s get Jiggy, kind of
Don’t worry, no dancing here, just dreams of overland projects. Now let’s discuss Bronco campers for a moment, or the lack there of. Years ago, Four Wheel Campers made slide in campers for Broncos, Blazers, Scouts etc. However, they are mostly long gone, or very and I mean very expensive. After giving up the dreamContinue reading “Let’s get Jiggy, kind of”
Another exhausting evening
Yup, another evening fighting the exhaust system. If only someone made a direct fit 300 6cyl header for a 4×4 my life would be a lot easier. But finally, a little progress was made and the headers are almost ready to bolt to the Y pipe. With any luck, I’ll be hanging a muffler thisContinue reading “Another exhausting evening”
