Your ladder rack is way cool. form and function.
dig the shot with the hammocks attached for camping. great idea.

When I replaced the shifter bushing in mine I almost couldn't drive it. I was to used to just moving it back and forth and it magically found the gear.
night and day with new shifter bushings, usually an easy opportunity to change out the trans fluid too. pour the gear oil through the top when its opened up. saves you from laying on your back and pumping it up hill.

Yeah it's so nice with the new bushing. It was really hard to get it into first amd reverse, but now goes in way better. I also recently replaced the clutch master cylinder, but now it feels like it grabs really hard when I slowly release the clutch. I can slip it after that, but before that it will thump as it grabs. Not sure what it is.

And thanks! I like the ladder rack. Works great for what I need it to do and I'm pleased with how it looks. Cant wait to get the shocks on.

Truck still have the old clutch slave cylinder? might not be a bad idea to swap it out. Also found that if you have the patients for a gravity bleed it works quite well in absence of a vacuum bleeder.

barely crack the bleeder with a submerged hose and bottle attached to catch, and let it gravity draw the fluid down with no assistance. takes a while but works. sometimes overnight.

Just for my own documentation...

Built some fender supports for my buddy's bronco. Everything flexes, so these are basically a band aid fix until he cages the whole front, beyond the giant engine cage.
