I'm thinking about it, but I don't know how they'd look since I plan to keep it a plain daily driver and not building it much. I think since it's a small hole I might leave it till it becomes a bigger problem. I like the stock lights, but can't find them anywhere for a reasonable price. Do you have any pictures of yours you could post?

Would you be willing to part with those tail lights for a semi reasonable price? Mostly need the driver's side, but for the right price it would be nice to have both so they're faded the same amount and have decent spares. If you wouldn't mind PMing me a price I'd appreciate it.

For you, no problem.

Got the clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing replaced. Just waiting on the master cylinder to finish off the clutch system.

Got a full gauge cluster and a 1990 ecu for the Comanche today. Gotta look up how to turn the miles back in the cluster and hopefully everything works out. Probably won't get work done on it till next week sometime since I'll be going to harlan Kentucky wheeling this weekend and going to Charleston for parts sometime next week.

The sensors are really easy. Unscrew the oil pressure switch, screw in an oil pressure sending unit and plug right in. Do the same thing for the temperature switch on the back of the cylinder head.

I think I have the right oil one. It's huge though, and I got an open style radiator so I need to figure out the sensor in that, and the one in the back of the head had an aftermarket temperature gauge hooked to it and that worked so the guy may have gotten the right one. I need to get everything kinda pieces back together and test it. He has some weird cooling stuff going on and I need to ditch the heater hoses with all the plastic fittings that are leaking and get some new style ones. It's all just a mess right now, but I got it some wheels and tires today, and the clutch master cylinder should come in too.

Drove it today, apparently the dmv is already closed for Christmas and will be closed till the 27th, but drove it around the neighborhood and it runs, but the starter has died and I had to roll start it. Strange how things can go out within an hour.

Funny how that happens.
I love that truck. I have been feeling like I need an MJ, but I have not seen any of them in my area.

I've always wanted one, then my friend texted me letting me know someone she knew was selling theirs for $500 so I jumped at the opportunity.

How hard is it for you to find a rear window up there? I'm getting ready to take mine out for a sliding window instead. So I'll have one more spare.
