run trails, like at the badlands, and some other guys run wellsville, ohio and up in canada. mainly rocks / hills. But I am also building it so i can adjust the suspension some and run out in the sand.

plugged engine oil cooler, the coolant system on this engine is trash, next up is timing cover and probably water pump as well as a new radiator.
