Stupid lumbar adjuster on new driver's seat is busted. Sigh.

Thanks for the link. Great stuff.

I did the vinyl seats that came out a while back. Still in therapy over that.

If you have good hog ring cutters and pliers it's a breeze really. For those 242 seats I just used big zip ties as they are easier to work with and do the job.

Had a new vibration at certain RPM's. Found a shiny spot on the oil pan where it was contacting the crossmember. Those mounts sure don't last very long. I ordered a driver's side diesel unit from Skandix.

BNE Hybrid arms should be out in the next few weeks (ordered 8/19).

Hoping Volvo's in the Hood happens this year. Looks like IPD may happen this fall.

Sweet. I would think Leavenworth would be safe, but my eldest is getting married right around then, so I doubt if I can sneak out. Not my year for car shows.

How much would I hate Bilstein HD's? The rebound on the Tourings is inadequate with the new springs.

Not a SME but in retrospect I think I would have gone with the Koni's instead on my wagon. When I go coilovers that's probably what I'll do. I don't hate them but definitely not in love.

Ratchet strap or take back that third mount you dropped off at my house. It’s probably more comfy now with the bushings in the middle...

New rear shocks arrived. They seem kind of stiff.

Yesterday I was lamenting that some of the Jeep guys were able to sort out Covid-compliant trail runs and enjoy a day of fun. This morning, while flipping through my phone, I saw that it was snowing on the mountain. With nothing better to do than watch the four walls close in, I bolted on the snow tires and the wife and I ran up the hill for some fun. So nice to get out.

The car is running great. Almost like a "real car."

On the drivers side of the engine block I found the following numbers: 498966 05456. I think the motor is an ‘83 B21FT. Can anyone confirm?

Im running 350 x 10" on GAZ / 150 back on gas adjust and I feel like 150 is too stiff for the back.
