    So here it is. My vision is to start as a hunting/fishing rig. Although I need this burban to get me 4-6 hour drives into the mountains and back. The window and door seals are shot. So I will start there. After getting it off the ground and checking out the front end I believe the tie rod ends and ball joints have been updated in the last few years. Radiator will need replaced from the look of it. Odd I know but the neck at the return house is really weak. From there it will need tires. I will run 35s. I have a deal on a 50% set will rims so.... that might work for this year. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I have seen the relay window motor kit on LMC. I have been told a person this forum makes them as well. I am in the market for four of them. Although I need to start on the lock switchs right now. It will lock fine but neither of the switches will even make a click to unlock. Going to dig into that today to find a relay or something.

    I plan to run 35's, he seller had 37's on it and wanted 2grand more for the rig with them. He gave the option of taking them off and I gladly agreed. The plan is to get it in a bit better shape. Then proceed with tires and wheels. I would like to eventually wrap the rig in a Matte Stone Grey. BTW Thanks for noticing the rig has missed legs day at the gym a time or two

    Stock oil pressure gauge. I replaced the sensor. The gauge still pegs out. I am going to try to find the gauge and replace it. Has anyone had this issue? I know someone has

    I have that issue with my oil pressure gauge now. I had a sender that was leaking so I replaced it and now it pegs at the high end. I believe there are 2 different senders and it's pretty common to get the wrong one. I can't help with any part numbers but if anyone knows I'm sure they will post them soon.

    Just recently had this issue on my 87 R10, 350 TBI.
    It would peg out, every now and then have a normal reading.
    Replaced with a standard sender, goes by the oil filter. Part number PS269 from rockauto.
    Only issue is that the cover that went of the factory one doesn't fit. The new one is wider.

    That looks like your knock sensor in the right side.
    Should look like this...

    Looking for recommendations for weather stripping. Rock auto has the front and rear doors in stock. The barn doors seem to be varied. There looks to be some generic styles, yet some fitted with ends that screw in. My barn doors don’t have enough metal left at those bottom end to screw anything to. What have other’s used

    LMC does not sell the barn door style weatherstripping, I have been searching every website I can for it. Any recommendations!!!! Before I go with a generic style

    Thank you! I sent a email to them last Tuesday. Stating that all I could find was the tailgate option. Their response was a apology that they stopped carrying it. I will see at checkout if they are still in stock. Thanks again.
