Re: 87' 4x4

Nice! Three wheeling topless! I actually had to look through your thread last week before I ordered my vintage air system to make sure my memory that you liked it was correct.

His wheel got higher than that, but I didn't get a picture. I thought he was going to roll it over at one point. That Blazer is a beast. He has a locker and 1 ton running gear.

I have had the Vintage Air for over two years now. No problems whatsoever with it.

Re: 87' 4x4

Looks like it was a fun trip. Glad to see you're putting that 4x4 to its intended use!

Re: 87' 4x4

I haven’t posted on here in a while, but my wife got me some “red square” vanity plates for Christmas that I figured were post worthy.

Re: 87' 4x4

Checkout this hillbilly aluminum skid plate I came up with this morning.

I don’t like the stock plastic ones because they cause the tank to rust, but I didn’t like have nothing at all. I wish it was a tad bit longer, but I don’t think it turned out too bad for nothing but an old sign and about 45 minutes of work.

Re: 87' 4x4

Man reading through this whole thread was nice. You definitely have a nice rig. Was your truck an original A/C truck? I love the color and those white wheels really make the truck. Hope to see some more down the road.

Re: 87' 4x4

That’s a great idea. The railroad probably won’t even mind...

People should get the idea when they come up to the crossing guard anyway. Who needs the advanced warning Looks like it should work pretty well, and leaves access for the pressure washer to keep the crap from collecting.

Thanks for the kind words! I really enjoy the truck. I haven’t posted much in a while because I haven’t really done much to it lately. Yeah, it was an A/C cab. The cab is actually an 83 as the original 87 had a bunch of rust.

Ha ha. Someone gave me that sign years ago. I don’t know where it came from. I have a game room full of signs and license plates. I had it hanging in there, but took it down a while back to make room for new stuff. I hated to cut it up, but I figured incorporating it into the truck was worth the sacrifice.

Re: 87' 4x4

We had a beach house this week for a family vacation. I took the truck to cruise up and down the beach. First day here the power steering pump went out. Seems like there’s always something! It took two trips to town for parts and tools (60 miles round trip) but I got it fixed! The shaft and ball bearings just fell out of the pump after I took the belt off. It has still been a pretty fun trip overall!

Re: 87' 4x4

You must have headed south a ways. That beach looks too nice for any around here. Truck looks like it was having fun playing in the sand. Glad you were able to work out the PS issue although I'm sure the time it took away sucked.

Re: 87' 4x4

Hey Rick! Yeah, the truck was fun on the beach. We were actually just down at Crystal Beach, not too far. But your options for a parts store were to wait on the ferry to Galveston or drive to Winnie!

It was kind of nice going to a small town parts store. The Carquest in Winnie had a little machine shop in back. I had trouble getting the pulley off the power steering shaft and they got it off for me. Couldn’t have got that kind of service at the parts store by my house!
