Must be an embed problem. I'm on chrome on a desktop, I can't get it to be clickable, and any variation of copy/paste ins't working for me.

This is what I see:

Both of your posts are showing the link just like my post, on my device. I'm using tapatalk though. I haven't used a desktop in years.

I copied the link and took the s off of 'http' and pasted here and 3 other forums. I have no ill report from them from their replies so far.

Happy to correct with your help, this is the first time I've link a video, ever, iirc.

Sounds good. Looking at the video, I thought of something. If you are sitting off road on something that has your right rear tire stuffed, you might not want to idle too long.

Lol, but it may be beneficial for the sticky tire to get warned up...

Don't be sad, lol. Its never done. This thread still has much more life over the next season or two.

I took it to uwharrie national forest last weekend for a veterans day ride. I pulled nearly two all nighters getting it cranked and moving under its own power. It went on the trailer with half the floor boards, a ever so slight fuel drip, and water drip- of my own creation, smh- described below... I went with no intention of getting on the trail, just to visit the veterans and some old friends I hadn't seen in a few years- cuz I been ass deep in the shop...

I had last minute decided to change a fitting at the heater port of the water pump, to get more chassis clearance. After I pulled the current one, I realized I ordered the wrong fitting- soooo, when putting original fitting back in (at 4am mind you) I cracked the damn pump. Well, I wasn't going to miss my day out of the shop...so I cleaned the anodizing from the fitting, drained water and dried the pump, acetone the shit out of it, and tig welded the fitting into the cracked housing. Very slowly (1/2" at a time) so as not to screw up the other port or the thermostat. There is one slight annoying pinhole drip yet, that I'll be fixing this weekend.

Got to the event, unloaded and chatted with a dozen or so build followers and friends, letting it idle for an hour or more. Everything is good, so far. A couple seeping fittings on trans cooler line and steering cooler fittings after the heat and cooling cycle, but really a non issue. All told, a successful afternoon. Oh, except it turns out my used rear grizzly locker is defunct... only powers left tire...smh. But I have a spare drop out with a spool going in this weekend.

Still much left to do before loading for RBD @ Busted Knuckle Off Road Park, thanksgiving night...

-Change rear third
-Change rear lower spring (225/350 now), currently zero pre load at ride height. Front is great 150/150 1.5" pre load.
-finish passengers floor and dog box
-couple wiring tid bits; rear stock taillights, front turn signal led mod, wire heater fan
- wrap and insulate headers
- install skids
- channel tailgate for clearance of racing lights when closed
- bleed brakes a couple more times

Past couple days I've;
- finished interior lighting including dash indicators
- wipers installed
- Yukon hardcore hubs needed a thicker spacer to operate correctly- completed
-headlight relay mod
- fixed fuel and trans leak, still need to fix leaky Lokar dipstick at block...
-plumbed and installed the fire bottle suppression and interior extinguisher

Initial drive impression...

- comfy and cozy
-a bit stiff but I haven't played with the dsc adjusters yet, currently set midway on both low and high speed compression. Current shims- front 1:1 ratio; 2,2,1 comp/ 30# reb... rear .7 ratio - 3,3,2 comp/ 30# reb, 225 nitro.
- very peppy in both ranges, surprisingly so in 2wd; I was pleasantly surprised with this, but had anticipated it, coming from heavy tons on 43's in the past.

There will be more progress pics through next week and hopefully some video throughout the weekend!

Looking awesome. Sounds great too. Your fab work continues to make anything I've done look like a play-doh train wreck. Can't wait to see some videos from the trails.

Quick question, as I may have missed it, but I recall you saying you would be keeping this titled insured and streetable? If so, out of curiosity, the way you have the dash plates laid out, it obstructs what would be the original VIN location. Since this is an entirely hand built chasis, are you using a new or custom VIN?

The vin on the early Comanche is on the firewall beside the driver's hood hinge- not under the glass, at least this one was... exactly where my tubing comes through the firewall. I'm going to reattach it a few inches over. (This is a 1990.)

But it's already tagged, titled, inspected, and insured. In non metropolitan counties in NC, there are no obd1 emissions, just safety and visual obd2 emissions inspection. I have customers in low places who "inspected" my truck with just the title...... at that point in time (two weeks back) it wasn't even running yet, and I just finished all the lighting tonight, lol.

But I'm hoping for some video next weekend... Getting excited to finally go wheel!

Thanks devil's ride!

The truck is finally- safety, mechanically, electrically, plumbing-ly 100% complete. The punch list of stuff left to do after RBD is very short, aside from anything that arises post trip. At this very moment, all I have left do to load up is finish the floors and firewall.

There are some things I still want to do of course, but upon leaving Thursday night, it will essentially be "done" for wheeling!

Bunch of random pics of tasks accomplished in the last few days...

It only takes me about 7-8 minutes to tear the front clip down to this degree, with nothing but a 1/4" impact driver and a couple torx bits. Had to tighten the steering cooler fitting and finish trimming the header panel for tire clearance, and led mod the front marker lights.













Skid plates on










All stock lights now functional

Comment and a couple requests.

Comment, when I would take people for rides in helicopters, I would always brief them "fire extinguishers are not for putting out the machine, they are for putting out the pilot". I think you should have at least one available to point wherever you choose.

Requests, could I get another pic of that heater? Source? Also, we need some "outside" pics. (Even if just in the driveway)

Note, why do the tail lights look yellow when lit? Is that legal?
