8V53T Detroit Diesel first start
Engine is for sale,
Serious inquires only please, listed at this link, you need to be registered to see classifieds (it's free, and a great forum anyhow)
First start in several years, it's a new engine to me and had been sitting a long time before I got it.
It is an 8V53T even though it appears to be only an 8V53.... I removed the turbo for now but it'll go back on soon. You can look forward to a another video as a true 8V53T!
Off Roading in Death Valley - Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ vs Toyota Truck
This documentary is of a trip to Death Valley in my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a freshly installed IRO long arm 4" lift kit. I talked an experienced "off-roader" friend of mine into teaching me the basics of four wheeling and showing me some of the cool spots that many people don't see when they go to Death Valley.
Special thanks to my friend Mike Todd for letting me eat some of the real food that he brought and cooked, instead of having to survive on Cliff bars and beef jerky like I had planned!
Also thanks to the guys at Iron Rock Off Road for the right advice on all of the upgrades I've made to the Jeep so far...
How to paint your car with Rustoleum. The right way.
I've been asked to make this vid a million times. So here it is.
This is a how-to regarding the 'Rustoleum technique'. I go over everything from mixing the paint to applying a clear coat. It takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, but if you have the determination, you can get great results.
Sorry about the repetitive audio. Youtube muted my original audio so I had to change it quick.
