    Electric Fuel Pump advise

    Yeah man it worked fine in stock form and it's a design that is used by almost every vehicle of that vintage. If you are installing this to band aid something else wrong like long crank times you have other issues. Sure I get it if you are putting a turbo on and want to use the FP plate for...

    Dual Snorkel Air Cleaner Housing

    That will change, once you get a lot.ofntje stuff dialed in the truck will become reliable. I have gone through every system and sure it's expensive and time consuming. But for most of a decade it was basic maintenance and the occasional fail which was usually just something small. Most of my...

    Dash lights

    Even when everything works correctly the OEM illumination sucks. Or maybe my eyesight is dimming as I age. Regardless the CUCV has aftermarket gauges which are super bright. The Burb has LEDs in the factory cluster. Dimmer is on full blast, no need to dim. They are as bright as they should be...

    Engine Oil Cooler Lines

    Depends on who is doing it. But I'd bet all the money to my name that I don't want to see anyone on this forum doing that.

    Engine Oil Cooler Lines

    I remember replacing mine when I got the truck. Something about the ones listed in all the parts fiche online were wrong but there is a set of AC Delco lines that fit with some minor bending. Probably bought them from RockAuto but maybe not under the 84 model year.

    Using your CUCV as a generator

    There is an endless amount of joke material here that I'm passing on. Wanted to let you know. 🤣 I would think that an inverter would be primarily powering AC devices only while running without a house battery bank. When I camp I'm a snob and will only drink drip coffee. I have a small machine...

    Using your CUCV as a generator

    Cool I do a segment on a show called The Survival Podcast. There used to be a guy who said the same thing on the show years ago. I never knew where it originated from. Sounds military... Tow bar is on the list. I have a CUCV and my square Burb has all the CUCV bumpers. I'd like the ability to...

    Using your CUCV as a generator

    Inverter is great to have in general. My concern is buying a 24v unit it wouldn't work with normal 12v vehicles. But I'm guessing you would permanently mount it. I don't know if Id go through the trouble of making a PTO generator. Probably would just buy a used standby or light tower for that...

    Using your CUCV as a generator

    Not sure why you need that...my M1031 came with a generator 🤣 I would think the stock system at 24v is good to about 3k watts off idle. Anything more you are really taxing your alternators and discharging the starting batteries.

    Your NP208 32 spline input shaft is GOLD!

    Same dimensions right? So no driveshaft refit? Seems like the way better option over the 208.

    Harbor Freight Winch questions

    PTO winches are cool if you have four legs and three hands to make all that work. Lot to be said for progress when you can tap a button on a key fob to pull cable. Of course it leaves more shit to break. I used to have a hydro winch on my TJ. Plenty of pull power and cool factor. It still...

    Harbor Freight Winch questions

    I had a real winch in my old rock crawler. A Warn M8000. That was 15 years ago. Since I sold that truck every one myself or my friends bought were Smittybilt. Sure you know it's 100% Chinese. But they all have worked well and done some tough work. Sure, we aren't doing competition rock...

    Your NP208 32 spline input shaft is GOLD!

    Talk about a polished turd... I don't know why someone would chase after that. So they had a half ton with a 208. Must have upgraded the transmission. Seriously you could swap a 205 in at that point. Already has 32 splines 🤣 I wonder if it's easier/cheaper to just put a 241 in?

    M1031 with serpentine belt questions

    Wow, most mods done by previous owners suck and are hacked. This is the nicest belt upgrade I have seen. Aside from having a very expensive alternator I'd keep it. Makes my Leece Neville 555JHO look like a toy...

    Dual Snorkel Air Cleaner Housing

    I'm guessing the most restrictive part of the 6.2 is the engine 🤣 Personally I like to turn the screw up so it just starts to puff at WOT. I know I'm getting full fuel at that point. Then advance the pump by one line width. Anything short of a turbo is a waste IMO. Sure you can port/polish...

    ARB Snorkel Warning!

    Probably fine under most circumstances but I'd only chance that with an EGT gauge.

    Cucv 12v bus normal amp draw

    Yes Are you wearing without the alternator charging? Because you may be reading the current going into the battery.

    Harbor Freight Winch questions

    My group and myself had always had great luck with the Smittybilt units. Probably similar price points or construction. I doubt you will find a bad cheap winch. They are all above and beyond the old Mile Marker 8000 from decades ago which absolutely sucked. The $300 winches of today are pretty...

    Dual Snorkel Air Cleaner Housing

    I have a snorkel on my Burb with an 8.1 engine. The intake air temp is always nice and low. But noticeable power gains... probably not. I also had one on a Jeep XJ. Could notice a slight bump on low throttle tip in but that's it. There was zero seat of the pants improvement. Now make the...
