Re: "The Bucket" project diary

Really fun truck. I enjoyed reading the build. Hope that you will have more to add down the road.

Re: "The Bucket" project diary

Good stuff. How well does turning out your exhaust out ahead of the rear tire work? Do you have a problem with fumes?

Re: "The Bucket" project diary

Zero fumes...Had them straight out back before & that was the worst, not as bad coming out at back corners, but out the side in front of tires seems to work the best!

Re: "The Bucket" project diary

I've always used ammo boxes for storage & love them. But been a little worried about someone swiping a box while I'm in the store or away from the truck for any length of time. It's where I keep winch controller, snatch straps, shackles, tools & all that other good stuff that doesn't need to come up missing. And heaven forbid I should ever crash this thing, the box weighs at least 50lbs & could easily be a death blow to the head (bunji corded down but don't really trust those) bouncing around. I've seen folks rig up locks on ammo boxes and cool hold-down brackets you can buy, but decided to go a different route...
So with pieces already had laying around the shop, a 6' aluminum hinge for $13 (this leaves 4'+ for another project) and $8 lockable paddle latch we fabbed up this solution.

LOL! Thankfully my husband does most of the fab work & puts up with me being picky about this kind of stuff, which equals alot of time in labor. With all the time he puts in these kinds of projects, it's a good things I don't have to pay him in ca$h, and he likes it better like that too

Re: "The Bucket" project diary

No real upgrades lately to report. Have just been riding in it!
Had to do a little playing with the heater duct work as it blew out at the floor in the middle & with my new console all the heat was going straight into it. So blocked that off & made where it would blow onto my & passengers feet instead.
Last week the speakers quit & it seems my amp took a dump, so just wired them back directly to the head unit.
That's about it lately. Supposed to go on a camp out & mud ride with a MS group first of Feb an looking fwd to that!

This is all I have on my computer (besides what's in above post), but I can take a few more if you want to see something specific.
Got a new master cylinder & reservoir from AutoZone from '01 (?think that was the yr) one ton truck & put after-market proportioning valve just in rear brake line so wouldn't be sliding those tires with the drum to disc swap in rear.

Nice blazer!!
I like the out of the box solutions you came up with for storage and that you have made all the good mods to make your drivetrain beefy!
