Going for a mild off-roader/truck for road trips with our 2 large dogs. Iím lucky enough to live roughly an hour from Uwharrie so thatís where I plan to wheel it roughly 2x a year. With that said...

Did some wrenching yesterday and today. Got the handbrake adjusted, cleaned the EVAP canister and did the EVAP breather mod. EVAP solenoid tested good so I cleared the P0448 code and hopefully it stays off. Also did the ďmagicĒ ABS disable mod. Used a momentary rocker switch and a relay to interrupt the circuit to the ABS module. Pics added to original post.

Some small things done. Got a replacement first aid kit (my OCD couldnít handle the empty void) went with a Vudoo Medical series and itís a perfect fit. Also, recycled an old storage container to help contain sliding items. Also, replaced all of the EVAP system and I think my P0448 code issue is done! (Knock on wood)

Zanethanís Slow but Steady Build

Got them in! Not as bad of a job as I thought it might be based on others posts. They did add a bit of height to the seats as well, maybe 1/4Ē. So much better than the stock cloth IMO.
