Then shortly later got the propane set up fixed (needed a new part) re-installed and got nearly 20mpg with a 40+gallon propane tank. I could go for ever and at the time Propane was just a tad over a buck.
wow....20 mpg....thats awesome!

id be happy with 17mpg.
shes running real rich at the moment,been driving it everywhere.
found out the heater doesent work,30 degree weather,1 hour drive to work.

about 1 hour ago after work i went wheelin in ou812's woods,the truck handled it like a champ.a few hills,narrow trails made for his jeep.was fun.

for awhile now...i been driving the 82 camo yota 60 miles a day on the interstate,75 is all she will do.
needless to say the 22r is loaded up and burning up,has less power now.
so time for engine swap,in 1 mth ill downgrade to 31 inch dc mud country tires to help unload that engine.either that or a gear change to 4.88's.
maybe some homebrew rock sliders,half doors for the summer time,replace the bed floor with diamond plate sheet metal...ect.

pulling the 81's engine now,ill update soon.
just a routine clean up and tune up,no performance mods.
has a weber carb there already,new clutch,needs water pump though.

got the beast out,fought with a stuck pilot bearing for an hour.
took 2.5 hour to pull a running 22r.
looks like my 81 has the beefy cast iorn l45 tranny.
am i correct?

might look like junk to you...but she runs beautiful!

but he states it will pull the truck up a tree with ease.
don't know how i missed this thread. guess i didn't scroll down far enough to see the 1:1. nice rig you got there.

on your winch, it appears to be a old model 8274, could be wrong, but thats what it looks like or a variant of that model. if it is a 8274, its one of the most desirable winches out there that 6 years ago when I was still wheeling 1:1s.
