Got a lil list of things to do over the winter ...
- going to add a compressor under the hood just for the tires ... leave ARB one for locker
- got some fender bolts to drill/retap larger
- replace one balljoint, realign wheels
- send chrome/moly birfields for a bearing rebuild
- new front seals
- more rollcage tubing over the rear
- install a yellow top Optima
- LUBE the leaf springs and body mounts

Spoke to Forbes ...try to get the valve guides replaced.

Dream ... sell Cepaks and get PitBulls
- MAYBE find a used tent trailer

Going to add another compressor to Bushwacker's compartment for just the tires ... picked this one up off ebay ....


incl. shipping $100
Direct Drive Oil less Motor
Thermal Overload Protection
Twin piston
12V clips 8ft
included: hose, gauges, and carrying bag
max Air Flow: 60 Liters Per Min
Max Voltage: 13.8volt
Max Amp Draw 30A
Max Working Pressure: 150PSI
Maximum Duty Cycle Time: 40minutes @ 40psi

Was thinking of mounting it under the hood ... but portable use makes more sense for ATV, Jeep, boat trailer

Timed 10psi to 28psi on front 35" ... 3min 30 sec.

Need to change the valve stem attachment to a quick disconnect

Thinking of changing it right where it comes out of the compressor ... where it screws in ( likely metric )... might be an adapter for that line.

Mine has a unique quick disconnect for the coiled line . Not likely going to find anything in Canada for that.

Princess Auto here I come.
