  • We finshed putting an LS 5.3 into my son's Cherokee Chief, ready for the 2013 ECI!

    Click on the picture to see the start up!

    We are running it in speed density because he is going to put a turbo on it after he gets the bugs worked out. The tune really cleaned up after he got the IAT sensor installed. He let me drive it and I almost did not come back, the thing is really fun to drive.

      • Adjusted the timing, Installed the new heater core, Installed new heater hose, Pulled and cleaned all the plugs...they were surprisingly clean, washed it for the first time this spring, vacuumed it out while I was at it, Had new exhaust system installed.

        Waiting for the Holley carb to arrive so I can install the new edlebrock intake manifold.

          • We went Soggy Bottom Mudpit for a benefit for a friend that was killed by a hit and run. I had several challanges and ran against the ZOO CREW's deuce and a half, a surburban and a 2000 Chero. I almost stalled out on the first run, as we were laughing so hard. at the fact i only had about 1/4 inch of tread on my tires, in foot deep mud. i only lost to the jeep. amazing what a 258 can still do.
            WE had to repipe the shower and replace the power steering pump, i was surprised that 3 vendors had the pump in stock and the 2 have a steering box at the local warehouse. No more "Whaaaaaa...Whaaaaa" at every course correction. Add another $50 bucks to the total, Now I have a better appreciation for the bad tie rod ends and worn out ball joints. may as well throw in a set of seals for the front end repack and couple of "U's". (parts still cheaper than my sons Toyota....).

                          • Pulled the tailgate off, and gave it and the 65 dash to the painter. Next is the bed, and then right after that, the cab gets painted. Then the fun begins to reassemble the entire thing!

                            • I snagged the tail lights, tailgate and hinge arms from the '77 shortbox I parted to post on Ebay. I'll probably turn the box into a trailer after I'm done fixing the stepside box.
