1 year in my Safari so far (lots of pics warning)

Postby pauledude [OP] » January 21st 2009, 6:55pm

A Brief history of the Van.

I got it in Nov I think. I cant find my original post. Paid $575 FOR IT! It has a salvage title. Installed NP231 Tcase, and a front axle disconect from a S10 a friend was about to take to the scrap yard. Then on Jan 2nd I left home in Ohio and headed west. Here are some pictures where it has been. I just thought I would share.

Lake Mead Yes the water is low

And I got stuck. the realized the cable I made didnt pull 4x4 disconect in enough. I still need to adjust that.
