Default project whatever you wanna call it

timeline will be off since im cutting and pasting from another forum

1987 pioneer, 4.0L, 5speed. 231 tcase, 30/35 with 3.07 gears. right now im doing a brake job on it while waiting on parts for my powerwagon.

the ad said new tires, new clutch, new water pump, and new brake master cylinder. I paid all of $500 for it lol.






as soon as i had insurance and titled it in my name, the next thing i did was pick up my OHV sticker


still has the original owners manual too


this morning i ordered a rustys budget spacer and shackle lift. it will give me about 2 inches of lift, im just going to run the tires on it for now. also ordered a plasma cutter and will be making frame stiffeners, swing out tire carrier, rock sliders, front bumper, and maybe a roof rack.

ok so the other day i started to take the front bumper off to build a winch bumper, nothing special just something to hold the winch. basicly all i got done was taking the bumper off and cutting the fangs, and i cut some of the material for the new one.





i had today off so i was hoping to get all/most of it done BUT as i wa making a cardboard template for my bumper mount i noticed something on the side of my radiator. it looks like there was a hole in the side of it and they stuck a good sized bolt into it and then tried JB weld. i touched it and it started leaking SO now i have a new radiator on order. > not happy.



after that i didnt even feel like working on it anymore but i made myself do it anyways and got one of the mounts cut out.



this shows how much further the mount will go back on the "frame" than the stock one. the driver side will incorporate the steering box bolts and i will add more on the passenger side also.



here is the center section of the bumper (not finished)

ok so this was what they had JB welded into the radiator



i got the new radiator in and of course with it being a closed cooling system it is fun to get the air out so i decided i was going to make it easier and installed a 92 thermostat housing and put a drain in, also drilling a small hole in the top of the thermostat flange itself to help get air out.

ok i got the passenger side bracket cut out today, also cut out the center section for my winch fairlead to mount to, bent it up and welded it on. looks like i might need to cut a little higher for the cable to come through.







my buddy had a bracket that fit on the fairlead that held his license plate and it would flip up or down depending on how it was mounted. well if it was flipped up you can see the winch cable spooling, and if its down and you winch upto something it will rip it off. so i am working on a bracket to flip the license plate out sideways.

last week i replaced my coolant bottle and heater hoses, figured since i had all this room i might as well change the spark plugs also



getting the factory press clamps off, i used a cut off wheel then used a screw driver to spread the clamp and pull them off.





then i started on some plating, side protection and getting rid of the stock tail lights with the molded plate and round lights.



thats as far as i got, last weekend was hunting and this weekend is the toy run at virtue
