    Made some mods to the Rubi.

    I took off the steel cable winch and added a synthetic version with a bit more pull. Also added new red shackles for the Rubicon look.

    Then I added a shelf in the rear that will also work as a built in dog crate.

    Thanks. That's what I was going for. I added a set to the rear as well. Gave a nice pop being the Jeep has a color matched top and fenders. It's a lot of gray.

    I've been having problems with my truck lately. All cylinders have over 150psi of compression except cylinder 6. Cylinder 6 only has 25psi of compression. Took it to the dealer from where I bought it at and they are putting g a brand new motor from General Motors in my truck under warranty. My truck has 80k miles on it but I will have a brand new motor. Should be done Monday or Tuesday.

    Talk about standing behind a warranty.

    Yep! They said a lifter exploded and pieces of metal were in the oil and went thru the motor. At first, I thought they would take the motor apart and fix it. But after they showed me the oil and pieces of metal, not just metal shavings, small pieces of metal, then I realized it would need a whole new motor. Thought they would get a remanufactured motor. But they got a brand new motor from GM. It's has been almost 3 weeks now, since I took my truck in to the dealer, but it's worth the wait. Excited to get my truck back. And kinda impressed that the dealer actually got a new motor from GM for me.

    I just got back my 64 El Camino after 26 years. I'm excited to bring it back to life after sitting 12 years in a garage. 64 ElCamino.jpeg

    Is this allowed in the truck thread???? Lol, I kid, I kid. Never been a fan of the El Caminos and Rancheros, but glad you got it back and I’m sure you’ll have a great time getting it back into shape!
