Hey man. Are there any decent 4x4 shops in Philadelphia? I live in BFE so I have to order everything, but will be in Philadelphia (right near the University of Philadelphia) 2/8-2/12 and was hoping to pick up a few small items and save on shipping.

Got any ideas?

Thanks, I'll look into these. Only 20 minutes away and I'm sure the taxi fare would kill me.

Yesterday wile the boy played in the snow. I relocated the vacuum ball from on the soon to be replaced bumper to in the engine compartment, right under the master cylinder.

with the help of some flexible hose that fit snugly over the hard vacuum like it was no problem at all.



not the best pic but you can see how I ran the line.

***** new home.
Eta,the line with the black marker on it is the line I ran.
