So far it’s been OK? They were/are really popular in the Arab states and apparently sold in this body style until 2002, so one can order parts from them interestingly enough. Read more

Yep, oil change about 1,500 miles ago. Will probably do another when I get back and get a Blackstone analysis on what was in there.

Got five fresh tires weeks ago, spare’s brand new! And yep, fluids, filters, a few key tools are onboard.

They had the flares for 1998, 1999 and 2000. Basically, a facelift on the second gen. Engine also changed from DOHC to SOHC for some reason. The ’98s and ’99s are generally the ones you want, because you could get the factory air locker in the rear diff.

Valve cover was done recently, and I got the thumbs-up from the Mitsubishi specialist mechanic I use in LA when he did some new oil, brake pads and post-purchase pre-purchase inspection for me. But I’ll keep an eye on that for sure. Read more

Yeah, we definitely avoid driving at night in Baja as a rule. Especially at speed. (Though of course it’s unavoidable when you’re racing.) (But we’re not racing this time.)

I appreciate the faith that I ball that hard! Alas, as some other commenters have pointed out, they’re not genuine Volk TE-37s. Not in my price range. Read more

Haha, yeah, I thought about that, then I forgot about it. I’ll wipe it off next time I wash the truck.

Might be fun to spectate the race in November. Weather will be rougher, but, I bet I could find us a pretty badass spectating spot!

It needs an extra little circuit that detects a long-press, and one that auto-stops when it hits resistance.

I was wondering if anybody would notice this. The man driving in that photo is very short. (Really.)

I’m still going to call my SUVs trucks. I invite you all to join me in defiance of Jason’s whims. He can’t punish all of us!
