Safari Upgrades

Postby protectedstock [OP] » May 1st 2009, 7:04am

Well, after spending much time and money getting a new oil pan for my 1993 GMC Safari AWD (after ramping it like a dumbass), I was unable to change it due to the incredibly difficult location of some of those nuts. Anyway, I ended up patching the tiny hole with JB weld which has held this far (about a month) with zero leakage. I also changed the coolant, oil and air filters.

I also ended up installing 2 x 10 inch Concept EX-10 subwoofers running Dual branded 2 x 500w at 6ohms with Kenwood components and headunit. They're in a huge ported box and sound amazing! I took out my rear row of seats so now it's 4 captains chairs with my box taking up half the rear cargo. Also purchased since my last post were 2 Hella 500FF lights, 2'5" Flowmaster muffler (it purrrrs) and 40 channel Cobra CB Radio with Wilson 5000 antennae. I think next on the list is a 4 inch lift from Overland, hopefully ranchero shocks and skidplate.

In all honesty, I love this van. It has just enough power (the flowmasters make a huge difference. if you don't have exhaust I highly recommend it.) All my friends either have trucks or smaller cars. I have a truck with a giant customized luxury compartment on the back. I'd say it's a pretty sweet first car, wouldn't you? Pictures coming tomorrow!
