I’ve been waiting a long time for this. They look amazing. Cooper SST Pros. My cousin works at a national tire store and got me the employee discount.
Welp, just cute a huge hole in my frame. PSA, make sure to test fit your engine swap engine with all the accessories attached... otherwise you’ll end up doing this.
I recently started school again. Up until this point my primary vehicle had been my trusted land cruiser. However, due to an ongoing LS swap on my truck, I was forced to find a plan B car to take with me to school. Luckily, I found a minty fresh Mercury Grand Marquis. However, this new car lacked anywhere to mount a…
Got some BF Goodrich rugged terrains installed on the Mercury. Got a great deal on them as they ended production on these a couple months ago.
Bumper is all welded up, my that took a long time.
I think it looks like a cross between a cow catcher and a snow plow.

This is the scene greeting me this morning. Hopefully I can get her all put together today.
Guessing Amazon prime lost money shipping these 2 day-
My favorite of the bunch - much want.
Went on a fun little road trip this weekend. First stopped at Kiptopeke state park in VA where they have constructed a huge breakwater with surplus concrete ships from WWII.
ITS LIKE CHRISTMAS. This bad boy came all the way from Australia and is used to mate a GM 4L60 transmission and a Toyota HF2A transfer case. I like to think of it as the keystone to my engine swap project. Surprisingly air shipping was only $130 from Australia, seems like a deal given how much I usually spend when…
Just put my deposit down for a 6.0L LQ4 and a 4L60e transmission!! My engine swap dreams are finally coming to fruition.
Photo of me getting stuck a couple of years ago. Thank god for Warn winches.
