Its just a little 1.9l diesel so not a monster and weighs quite a bit less then the 4L that came out.
The two sitting next to each other are pretty funny considering they are about the same power or a bit more for the little TDI with some help.
Those TDIs can be some beasts with some tuning

Got the front end all stripped and started to sand blast the front axle when my pressure washer hose blew apart.
New hose in the morning and I should get back at it.
I love sand blasting with a pressure washer, 3000PSI and no dust!

OK, so sandblasting with a pressure washer in BC in Feb is not the greatest thing to do all day but it shure does a nice job.
Got all the front end parts done as well as the engine compartment.
We are supposed to have a rain free morning tomorrow and hopefully that's enough time to get it primed and painted.

You have to love those brown delivery trucks.

Now I need some advice.
Need shocks for all 4 corners.
This thing will not see any heavy wheeling. Its mostly a DD with some logging rood use.
Don't want to spend a fortune.
Best of the "white tube" shocks?
Do I need a longer shock with a 2" lift?

All white tube shocks are the same Chinese garbage. Iirc doestech is the only exception. Yea you should get a slightly longer shock. People will say yes, but IMHO if you lifting up 2" those shocks aren't in ther spec range of absorbing anything

I have Doestech and like them. Dont really have much to compare to, but they're not bad.
