Replaced the oxygen sensors (two) and it passed its smog test with excellent readings!

Now to do some upgrades instead of junking it.

Plastidipped my wheels. About $14.00 in product. They look fantastic, it was super easy. It covered all the road rash and clear coat peels.

took off my new tires and had them rebalanced, still have a slight vibration, might put the tires over onto my original "deer-paw" alloys, kinda sucks, i really liked the deep-dish 8" D-windows, but with the vibration its alot better to look at then it is fun to drive...crazy!

Changed the oil, aired up the tires and re-torqued my u bolts. I love having a vehicle that you can slide under to change the oil rather that put it on a lift.

drove it up to 80 today, doesnt vibrate much after 65. got some slushy snow here, these wide tires dont do very well in it, a 2wd would be almost undriveable.
