haha yea, i was starting it with carb cleaner for so long that the flexy hose cracked from being taken off so many times. I'm ordering intercooler coupling and aluminum pipe to complete the intake and installed it with the 5mge AFM. Since i'm not swapping battery and intake, maybe i'll fab up an air box for it and a ricey little hood scoop in the corner of my hood haha.

thanks Eric! picked it up yesterday, on what was the most miserable drive of my life. I don't know what speeds everyone drives at to get low 20's highway MPG, but driving the speed limit (75 out here in the Wild West) I'm getting 15-17 and a spinal realignment. not to mention it was raining the whole day, in Arizona. what's up with that?

oh well, picked up the header, painted it, and just waiting to put it on until I can make/find a flange so it isn't welded to the exhaust piping.

in the mean time, some stripes got painted

just an update:

- built some bumpers out of 4"x6"x1/4" tube front and rear

- swapped in 4.88 gears front and rear, old 4.10 diffs now for sale

- greased up the ball joints, u-joints, driveshafts, etc...

- just finished up the 5mge AFM swap an hour ago, waiting for the wife to come home so I can rob the filter from her jeep haha

that's about it, I know it's friggin exciting, but try to contain yourselves. I'll post pics this weekend after I take some worth posting, and hopefully I'll complete my tire carrier tailgate as well.

I can definitely feel the difference, but since I just did the gears and the AFM at the same time, I don't think I can credit all the power to that little bit of extra air. That thing was giving me the hardest time though, and to mount it i just zip-tied it to a chopped up stock air box

pictures, as promised:

AFM swap and piping

rear bumper - note, we broke the welder at the auto shop on base, so it's not sealed up yet, therefor not painted. well, it was already half-broken, but while I was laying a sweet-ass bead the wire welded itself to the spring follower inside the gun.

front bumper



and even though the gears and tires still don't match the "stock" ratio, i'm averaging 18.5 in town, with only about 40 miles with the new AFM. much much much better than the 15 i was getting for the past 6 months.

Still to finish:
- bed liner (i know, it looks like Frosty the Snowman blew his load on my truck bed)
- rear tailgate/tire carrier
- install front gears when I get them, should be tuesday or wednesday.

thanks to everyone for reading and commenting, it really helps keep the motivation alive.
