Rear Heater Protection

Post by docsavage » Wed Mar 30, 2011 9:11 am

Added some guard to the plastic rear heater on my L300. Mine had a few scars from strikes from foreign objects and wanted to prevent more destruction:

Also tidying up the rear bumper and plotting a front bumper and attaching the roof rack. I took some of the lift out (blocks in the rear) to make it sit more level and plan on running 31's. Bigger tires were just too much stress on the drive train. Had to put in a new clutch and the rear u-joints are going. I'll get to the u-joints after I finish the timing belt and water pump (balance shaft belt disintegrated, but fortunately not the timing belt before I decided to take a look at what was squealing).

He's alive ! Hi James :-D

Nice move on the heater box armor. It's a thorn underneath when you're offroad.

How are things up north ?

Hi Jesse,

Just been lurking awhile. I drove my van home from my wedding last May on a fried clutch (1200 km) and the alternator cooked from Mt Robson to Houston, about 600km. Just made it home, the last 20 km, any hill would elicit nasty slippage and very slow speeds. Pulled it into the driveway and there it has been sitting until last month. We bought a nice VW Passat TDI for our long highway trips so the van was not needed until now.

I have time here during breakup to fix a few things a you can tell!! Spring has finally cast warmth and the snow is melting. Need to get everything ready for some spring steelheading. A few guys on the forum might know where I am heading (AfterOil has friends where I go 8-) ) This includes inside rod rack, and tidying up the sleeping arrangment. It sure is a good thing we get a long spring break!!

Can't see why you would need to travel, youre already there, unless the color of wire is where you are headed :-D
