(ANNOUNCER)>> WITH ITS SHORT WHEEL BASE AND NOW FRILLS DESIGN, THE FJ 40 HAS BECOME AN OFF ROAD CLASSIC.

BUT THE PUSH/PULL MANUAL STEERING HAS GOT TO GO. TODAY ON XTREME 4X4 WE HELP A FATHER AND SON UPGRADE TO MODERN POWER STEERING.

(IAN)>> YOU NOW IF THIS YEAR'S SEASON OF XTREME 4X4 HAD A THEME, IT WOULD BE THE THEME OF US GIVING

BACK TO YOU GUYS AT HOME. WE ANSWERED A BUNCH OF YOUR EMAILS, TOOK A VIEWER'S JEEP AND COMPLETELY REBUILT IT FROM THE GROUND UP.

BUT PROBABLY THE MOST POPULAR THING THAT WE'VE DONE THIS YEAR IS OUR DRIVEWAY RESCUE SEGMENTS. THAT'S WHEN WE PARTNERED WITH OUR FRIENDS FROM FOUR WHEEL PARTS, LOADED OUR VAN FULL OF PARTS AND OUR TRAILER FULL OF TOOLS, AND CAME TO YOUR HOUSE TO WORK IN YOUR DRIVEWAY. SO YOU GUYS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN EMAILING US SAYING WHY DON'T WORK ON PROJECTS LIKE WE DO AT HOME IN OUR DRIVEWAY. SO THAT'S WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING, AND TODAY IS OUR LAST TRIP OF THE YEAR. WE'RE HEADED DOWN TO ALABAMA, TO HELP A GUY OUT WITH HIS FJ 40.

NOW WHILE WE'RE HEADED THAT WAY, LET'S TAKE A LOOK BACK AT SOME OF OUR BEST DRIVEWAY RESCUES. OUR FIRST STOP WAS AT JEFF HARDY'S HOUSE. HE GOT STALLED AT PUTTING A SUSPENSION LIFT IN HIS JEEP WHEN HE FOUND OUT THAT IT NEED TO HAVE A SLIP YOKE ELIMINATOR KIT INSTALLED IN THE TRANSFER CASE.

SO WITH THE JEEP UP ON SOME JACK STANDS, WE PULLED OUT HIS CASE AND DROPPED IT ON A FOLD TABLE IN HIS DRIVEWAY TO BE COMPLETELY REBUILT.

SO WE'RE GONNA TAKE THIS INNER CCLIP OFF AND THAT WHOLE HOUSING WILL SLIDE OUT.

THIS IS THE OIL PUMP. THIS IS THE ONLY TRANSFER CASE THAT'S GOT AN OIL PUMP. INSTEAD OF JUST LIKE THE GEARS SPLASHING AROUND IN THE OIL, THIS ACTUALLY DRAWS OIL UP FROM HERE. THIS IS YOUR LITTLE FILTER DOWN HERE. IT SUCKS IT UP AND LUBRICATES EVERYTHING. THE BIGGEST PROBLEM PEOPLE HAVE WHEN THEY PUT THESE BACK TOGETHER. SEE THAT LITTLE, TINY LITTLE PIPE IN THERE. THEY WON'T GET THAT HOOKED UP AND THEN WHAT HAPPENS IT'LL LAST FOR 5,000 MILES AND THEN THE TRANSFER CASE IS GARBAGE.

ONCE WE TORE DOWN THE CASE, WE SHOWED HIM A FEW TIPS AND TRICKS SO HE'D BE ABLE TO HELP ANOTHER WHEELER IN THE FUTURE. THAT'S THE OIL PUMP TUBE THAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT. AND IT'S EASY TO COME OUT OF THERE, TO POP OUT OF THERE. SO IF IT'S SITTING LIKE THAT IT'LL STARVE THAT CASE OF OIL.

(JEFF)>> WILL YOU HOLD THAT LIKE THAT?

(IAN)>> I SURE WILL.

(IAN)>> IF YOU TAKE ONE OF THESE APART TO CHECK THE CHAIN ON A CHAIN CASE LIKE THIS, IF YOU HOLD IT UP LIKE THAT AND IT STAYS LEVEL, THE CHAIN'S STILL GOOD. IF IT DROOPS, THE CHAIN'S BEEN STRETCHED. ONCE THE CHAIN'S BEEN STRETCHED IT'S TRASH, GOTTA REPLACE IT. HERE WE GO.

(JEFF)>> IT'S KINDA OVERWHELMING TO TEAR APART A TRANSFER CASE IF YOU'VE NEVER DONE IT BEFORE. THERE'S A LOT OF LITTLE PARTS IN THERE. A LOT OF THE SMALL STEPS SUCH AS THE OIL PICK UP TUBE WERE VERY HELPFUL. I WOULD FEEL VERY COMFORTABLE DOING THIS IN THE FUTURE.

(IAN)>> OKAY, WE'RE GONNA LEAVE THIS FRONT NUT LOOSE JUST LIKE THE FRONT OUTPUT. THAT WAY WE'LL TIGHTEN THEM WHEN THEY'RE IN THE TRUCK. USE THE ENGINE TO HOLD IT STILL, WE CAN TORQUE

IT DOWN NICE AND TIGHT.

(JEFF)>> SOUNDS GOOD.

(IAN)>> THEN WE FILLED THE NP 231 WITH FLUID AND

BOLTED IT BACK IN THE JEEP. AFTER A SHORT TEST DRIVE HE WAS READY TO TACKLE THAT SUSPENSION INSTALL. NOW THE VERY NEXT DAY JEFF INVITED A BUNCH OF HIS FRIENDS OVER TO HIS HOUSE AND THEY INSTALLED HIS FOUR INCH SUSPENSION LIFT.

AND HE'S BEEN WHEELING HIS JEEP EVER SINCE SLOWLY UPGRADING AND ADDING EVEN MORE OFF ROAD GOODIES.

(ANNOUNCER)>> A COOL DAD TEACHES YOU HOW TO WORK ON HIS CLASSIC FJ 40, BUT THE COOLEST DAD IN THE WORLD GIVES YOU THE KEYS ON YOUR SIXTEENTH BIRTHDAY!

(IAN)>> TODAY WE'RE HAVING A LOOK BACK AT SOME OF OUR FAVORITE DRIVEWAY RESCUE PROJECTS WHILE WE'RE ON OUR WAY TO HELP A VIEWER OUT WITH HIS CLASSIC FJ 40. NOW FOR A COUPLE OF PEOPLE IT WASN'T A LACK OF SKILL THAT STOPPED THEIR PROJECT. IT WAS JUST THE OVERWHELMING OPTIONS OF PARTS THEY HAD TO CHOOSE FROM. SO WE LOADED UP OUR VAN, PICKED UP SOME PARTS, AND HEADED THEIR WAY. NICOLE AND HER HUSBAND HAD JUST GOTTEN MARRIED. SHE WANTED TO GET HIM A WEDDING PRESENT FOR HIS TOYOTA TRUCK. BUT WHEN SHE WENT TO PICK OUT LIGHTS, THERE WERE SO MANY OPTIONS SHE FELT OVERWHELMED. WELL WE SWUNG BY OUR LOCAL FOUR WHEEL PARTS AND GRABBED

ONE OF EACH TYPE OF LIGHT. AFTER SHOWING HER THE THREE MAIN OPTIONS, WE HELPED HER INSTALL A RIGID LED LIGHT BAR ON THE FRONT BUMPER OF HIS TRUCK. AFTER DRILLING AND TAPPING THE FRONT TUBE BUMPER, WE'LL APPLY SOME BLUE LOCTITE TO THE STAINLESS STEEL FASTENERS AND PULL THE LIGHT BAR DOWN. WIRING THE LIGHT BAR IS VERY EASY THANKS TO THE INCLUDED HARNESS. HOOK IT UP TO THE BATTERY POSTS. THEN WE'LL MOUNT THE RELAY ONTO THE FENDER.

THEN WE'LL HOOK UP THE SWITCH AND MOUNT IT IN THE LOWER DASH. NICOLE AND HER HUSBAND HAVE BEEN OUT WHEELING MANY

TIMES SINCE OUR VISIT. THEY'RE ENJOYING THE ABILITY TO WHEEL AT NIGHT THANKS TO THE NEW LIGHTS ON HIS RIG. JOHN WAS ANOTHER VIEWER WHO WAS UNSURE

ABOUT HIS OPTIONS. HIS YJ WAS RIGHT ON THE EDGE OF BECOMING A HARDCORE WHEELER. HE WAS NOT SURE WHAT TYPE OF ROLL CAGE TO PUT INTO

HIS TRUCK, A WHOLE NEW ONE OR SIMPLY

UPGRADE THE STOCK CAGE. WE BROUGHT HIM A GEN RIGHT FAST BACK STYLE CAGE FOR HIS JEEP. AND WITH THE FACTORY CAGE COMPLETELY REMOVED, HELPED HIM INSTALL THE PREBENT, PRENOTCHED CAGE KIT.

SEE HOW THE TWO TUBES ARE HITTING EACH OTHER?

THAT'S FROM THE NOTCH. WHAT WE WANT IS WE WANT THESE TUBES TO BE LINED UP PERFECT WITH EACH OTHER. SO WE'RE GONNA GRIND THE INSIDE EDGE OF THIS POINT AND PART OF THE NOTCH. THAT WAY WE CAN SLIDE THIS BAR BACK A LITTLE BIT, AND THEN THEY'LL LINE UP PERFECTLY. THEN THE REST OF THE TUBES WE'LL JUST DROP INTO PLACE. THE BEAUTY OF A PREBENT, PRENOTCHED CAGE IS YOU CAN TELL IF EVERYTHING'S FITTING CORRECTLY BY INSPECTING THE JOINTS. IF THEY'RE TIGHT, THEY'RE READY TO WELD. NOW WE OFTEN FOUND AFTER SPENDING THE DAY WITH OUR DRIVEWAY RESCUE VIEWERS THAT THEY FELT EMPOWERED AND WANTED TO WORK ON THEIR PROJECT EVEN MORE. NOW IN JOHN'S CASE WE WANTED TO LEAVE HIM WITH A LITTLE BIT OF HOMEWORK TO DO AFTER WE LEFT. WE WANTED HIM TO FULLY WELD IN HIS OWN ROLL CAGE JUST TO GIVE HIM THAT SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT. BUT BEFORE WE TURNED HIM LOOSE WITH THE TORCH, WE WANTED TO SIT HIM DOWN AND GIVE A LITTLE WELDING LESSON. OKAY, THE CAGE IS ALL TACKED IN, AND THE NEXT STEP'S GONNA BE TO FULLY WELD IT. AND YOU DON'T WANT TO WELD IT OUTSIDE BECAUSE THE WIND IS GONNA BLOW THE SHIELDING GAS EVERYWHERE. SO NOT A LOT DIFFERENT THAN WELDING FLAT PLATE, BUT YOU'VE JUST GOT TO REALLY PAY ATTENTION TO THE TORCH POSITION BECAUSE YOU'RE GONNA BE WORKING ALL THE WAY AROUND A TUBE JOINT. AND JUST TRY TO GET THAT TUBE JOINT WELDED IN AS FEW STEPS AS POSSIBLE. SO IF YOU CAN GET IT ALL THE WAY AROUND IN ONE, THAT'S GREAT. TWO, THREE, FOUR IS PROBABLY THE MAXIMUM. SO I'LL JUST RUN AROUND THIS ONE JUST SO YOU CAN WATCH HOW THAT TORCH MOVES. AND THEN I'M GONNA LET YOU TEAR INTO IT. SO THE KEY TO THIS TYPE WITH A 110 VOLT WELDER IS JUST TO MOVE SLOW. THAT'S ALL YOU'VE GOT TO DO. JUST SLOWLY MOVE THAT TORCH AROUND. 220 STUFF YOU CAN GO A LOT FASTER, BUT THESE LITTLE WELDERS LIKE THIS. YOU'VE JUST GOT TO TAKE YOUR TIME CAUSE YOU'RE ONLY RUNNING WITH LIKE 140 AMPS. THEN JOHN SUITED UP TO LAY DOWN A BEAD. GOOD, THAT'S PERFECT MAN. WE'RE GONNA DO THAT LIKE 87 MORE TIMES.

(JEFF)>> WELL ALRIGHT.

(ANNOUNCER)>> COMING UP, UNLESS YOU'RE TAKING YOUR RIG FOR A SUNDAY DRIVE, YOU NEED A WINCH.

(IAN)>> NOW WE'VE HAD A LOT OF FUN AND MET SOME GREAT PEOPLE COMING TO YOUR HOUSES TO HELP YOU GET PAST SOME

ROAD BLOCKS ON YOUR PROJECTS. NOW IF THERE'S ONE THING THAT'S A COMMON THEME IN ALL

OF OFF ROAD IT'S THAT IT'S A FAMILY AFFAIR. AND WE HAD ONE VIEWER WHO NEED SOME HELP, ADDING SOME RECOVERY POINTS TO HIS TOYOTA FOUR RUNNER SO HE WOULDN'T GET STUCK IN THE WOODS WITH HIS KIDS IN THE BACK OF THE RIG. SO WE LOADED UP OUR VAN AND HEADED HIS WAY. OUR FIRST STOP WE TO OUR LOCAL FOUR WHEEL PARTS STORE TO HAVE A LOOK AT OUR OPTIONS OF DIFFERENT SIZES SMITTYBILT WENCHES. AND SINCE JEREMY'S ROCKING A TOYOTA TRUCK, WE HAD THEM SPECIAL ORDER US IN A COUPLE OF TRAIL GEAR HEAVY DUTY OFF ROAD BUMPERS. THEN WE JUMPED IN THE DRIVEWAY RESCUE RIG AND HEADED ON OVER TO HIS HOUSE.

SINCE YOU DON'T HAVE ANY OF THE FACTORY BOLTS, I BROUGHT

SOME GOOD HEAVY DUTY GRADE EIGHT HALF INCH STUFF.

AND WE'LL JUST DRILL OUT THOSE OLD BOLTS, GET A NUT IN BEHIND IT, AND BOLT IT FROM THERE.

AFTER A COUPLE OF TEST FITS, WE OPENED UP THE FACTORY HOLES AND BOLTED THE BUMPER INTO PLACE.

ALRIGHT JEREMY, TO FINISH UP THE FRONT END OF YOUR TRUCK

I'VE GOT THIS SMITTYBILT 8,000 POUND WINCH. IT'S THE PERFECT WEIGHT RATING FOR A TOYOTA RIG LIKE

YOURS AND IT'S A SYNTHETIC WINCH LINE WINCH, WHICH IS GREAT BECAUSE IT SHAVES A LITTLE BIT OF WEIGHT OFF THE FRONT END OF THE TRUCK, WHICH IS GOOD

FOR STEEP HILL CLIMBS. BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY IT'S SAFE. IF THE WINCH LINE DOES BREAK, IT DOESN'T HAVE THAT KINETIC ENERGY THAT A CABLE DOES WHERE IT'S GONNA WHIP BACK AND HURT SOMEBODY. IT'LL JUST FALL TO THE GROUND.

(JEREMY)>> GOOD FOR THE KIDS THEN.

(IAN)>> YEAH IT'S GREAT FOR A FAMILY WHEELER CAUSE IF

YOU ARE WINCHING, YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE AS WORRIED WHEN PEOPLE ARE AROUND.

AND THIS'LL BOLT RIGHT ONTO THAT BUMPER, AND THEN WE SHOULD BE DONE. WITH THE GRILL OUT OF THE WAY, THE WINCH WILL SIMPLY DROP ONTO THE BUMPER, AND IT'S WIRED UP TO THE BATTERY, AND WE FINISH IF OFF BY INSTALLING THE HOSS FAIRLEAD.

ALRIGHT JEREMY, NOW YOU HAVE A GOOD BUMPER ON THE FRONT

WITH A RECOVERY POINT AND MORE IMPORTANTLY A GOOD NEW WINCH SO YOU CAN SELF RECOVERY, YOU DON'T HAVE TO RELY ON YOUR BUDDIES ALL THE TIME.

(JEREMY)>> ABSOLUTELY, REALLY APPRECIATE ALL THE TIME AND ENERGY ON THAT.

(IAN)>> HEY, NO PROBLEM. NOW I WOULD SUGGEST WHEN THE WIND DIES DOWN A LITTLE BIT, GO AHEAD AND GIVE THIS BUMPER A COAT OF PAINT. EITHER MASK IT OFF OR PAINT IT ON THE TRUCK, OR PULL IT OFF AND PAINT IT. AND I LIKE TO LEAVE A LITTLE BIT OF WORK FOR YOU GUYS TO DO. SO I GOT YOU A MATCHING REAR BUMPER FOR THE TRUCK AND IT HAS A RECEIVER HITCH IN AS WELL FOR YOUR RECOVERY POINT. GO AHEAD, GET IT ON, GET THEM PAINTED, GET SOME SHOTS OF THIS TRUCK ON THE TRAIL, YOU AND YOUR FAMILY HAVING FUN.

(JEREMY)>> ABSOLUTELY WILL DO.

ALRIGHT MAN, I APPRECIATE IT, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

(IAN)>> AFTER WE LEFT JEREMY'S HOUSE HE INSTALLED HIS REAR BUMPER AND HAS BEEN OUT WHEELING HIS RIG EVER SINCE, HAVING FUN WITH HIS FAMILY.

(ANNOUNCER)>> YOU CAN GIVE YOUR SON A TRUCK FOR HIS SIXTEENTH BIRTHDAY, BUT HE'LL APPRECIATE IT MORE IF YOU BUILD IT TOGETHER.

(ANNOUNCER)>> NEED HELP SOLVING A PROBLEM WITH YOUR PROJECT? HERE'S DRIVEWAY RESCUE, BROUGHT TO YOU BY FOUR WHEEL PARTS DOT COM.

(IAN)>> WE'RE BACK ON XTREME AND ON OUR WAY TO HELP A VIEWER WHO HAS A CLASSIC FJ 40. IT'S BEEN IN HIS FAMILY FOR YEARS. BUT BEFORE HE PUTS HIS SON BEHIND THE WHEEL, HE WANTS TO UPGRADE THE COMPLICATED PUSH/PULL STEERING SETUP. WELL WE LOADED OUR VAN AND TRAILER FULL OF PARTS AND TOOLS AND SHOWED UP TO HELP.

HOW YOU DOING JERRY?

(JERRY)>> GOOD!

(IAN)>> GOOD TO MEET YOU MAN.

(JERRY)>> NICE TO MEET YOU.

(IAN)>> ALRIGHT, SO THIS IS THE TRUCK, TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT IT.

(JERRY)>> THIS IS A 1978 FJ 40.

(IAN)>> AND HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD IT?

(JERRY)>> I HAD IT FOR 11 YEARS. I BOUGHT IT FOR MY SON BEFORE HE WAS BORN.

(IAN)>> AND SO THIS WILL BE YOUR FIRST CAR? (IAN H.)>> YEAH.

(IAN)>> WELL YOU KNOW PART OF OWNING A FIRST CAR IS YOU HAVE TO WORK ON IT. THE PLAN HERE IS TO UPGRADE THE STEERING, WHICH IS A GOOD IDEA CAUSE THE STEERING ON THESE FJ'S IS A LITTLE BIT SKETCHY. AND YOU'RE GONNA HELP ME INSTALL IT, AND YOU ARE TOO RIGHT? (IAN H.)>> YEAH!

(IAN)>> ALRIGHT, WELL I GOT THE PARTS, WE'LL TEAR THIS THING APART.

(JERRY)>> I BOUGHT IT ABOUT TWO WEEKS BEFORE MY SON WAS BORN. I'D BEEN LOOKING FOR ONE, AND HADN'T TOLD MY WIFE ABOUT IT UNTIL I'D ALREADY PURCHASED IT. AND I HAD TO COME CLEAN AND TELL HER THE TRUTH BECAUSE IT WAS ON ITS WAY FROM TENNESSEE ON A TRAILER AND GONNA SHOW UP AT MY HOUSE, AND I WASN'T EVEN HOME.

SO I HAD TO TELL HER THE TRUCK WAS ON THE WAY.

(IAN)>> ALRIGHT GUYS, TO CONVERT THIS FJ 40 OVER TO POWER STEERING WE'VE GOT TWO DIFFERENT KITS. THE FIRST ONE IS FROM ADVANCED ADAPTERS, AND THIS CONVERTS IT FROM THAT PUSH/PULL STEERING, YOU SAW THAT COMPLICATED STEERING SYSTEM UNDER THERE, TO WHAT'S CALLED A CROSSOVER STEERING. AND THAT IS WHAT ALL OF THESE PARTS WILL TAKE CARE OF.

NOW TO CHANGE IT OVER FROM MANUAL STEERING TO POWER STEERING WE HAVE THIS KIT FROM PSC. NOW THIS IS A BRAND NEW POWER GEAR, NEW PUMP, AND A RESERVOIR TO HOLD ALL THE FLUID. AND THAT WILL CHANGE IT OVER FROM THAT REALLY HARD TO

TURN MANUAL STEERING OVER TO POWER STEERING, EASY TO TURN THE STEERING WHEEL. SO WHAT WE HAVE TO DO NOW IS WE'LL START WITH THE CROSSOVER KIT, AND THEN WE'LL DO THE POWER STEERING KIT AFTER THAT. SO ANY QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS?

(JERRY)>> PERFECT, ALRIGHT, FIRST STEP, THIS BEARING ONTO THE FIREWALL, IT'S YOUR JOB. THE BEARING ON THE FIREWALL WILL SUPPORT THE NOW TRIMMED COLUMN WHERE IT USED TO MOUNT TO THE FACTORY BOX.

(JERRY)>> AS HE STARTED GETTING A LITTLE OLDER AND REALIZED WHAT IT WAS, HE WANTED IT FOR HIMSELF. SO HE AND I BOTH STARTED WORKING ON IT TOGETHER. SO IT'S BEEN A FATHER/SON PROJECT.

(IAN)>> THE FRONT CROSS MEMBER ON THE TRUCK NEEDS TO BE TRIMMED SO THE STEERING BOX CAN ACCESS THE NEW STEERING SHAFT. THE OPENING IS CLEANED UP WITH A GRINDER, AND THEN THE FRAME RAIL IS DRILLED FOR THE MOUNTING HOLES FOR THE STEERING BOX.

BEFORE WE DO ANY WELDING WE'LL ROLL THE FJ BACK INTO THE BARN SO WIND WON'T DISTURB THE SHIELDING GAS. THEN THE PLATES ARE PUT INTO PLACE AND THE

BOX IS BOLTED UP.

NOW JERRY HAS NEVER WELDED BEFORE, AND A PROJECT LIKE THIS IS A GREAT TIME TO LEARN.

(JERRY)>> I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO, JUST NEVER HAD THE EQUIPMENT TO. AND I LIKE IT, SO I THINK I'LL DO SOME MORE OF IT.

(IAN)>> IT'S GOING WELL. WE'RE GONNA HIT THIS WITH A GRINDER TO SMOOTH IT OUT CAUSE WE'RE GONNA DO A BEAD ON THIS SIDE AND THEN A BEAD ON THAT SIDE. WHILE JERRY AND I FINISH UP THE MULTI PASS WELD ON THE FRAME, IAN WILL BOLT A NEW POWER STEERING PULLEY ONTO OUR PSC PUMP. ALRIGHT JERRY, THE LAST THING WE NEED TO DO IS PUT ON YOUR NEW PUMP. NOW THIS PUMP HAS AN EXTERNAL RESERVOIR, THAT'S THIS PIECE RIGHT HERE, AND YOU WANT TO MOUNT IT AS CLOSE TO THE PUMP AS YOU CAN. JUST BASICALLY KEEP THESE TWO FITTINGS IN LINE. NOW YOU SAID YOU'RE GONNA REPLACE YOUR BATTERY BOX SHORTLY RIGHT?

(JERRY)>> THAT'S RIGHT.

(IAN)>> I THINK THE BEST THING TO DO IS JUST LEAVE THIS LOOSE FOR NOW. WHEN YOU GET YOUR NEW BATTERY BOX, DRILL A COUPLE OF HOLES, MOUNT THIS RESERVOIR UP IN PLACE. THAT'S A PERFECT SPOT FOR IT. IT'LL BE A STRAIGHT SHOT ONTO THE PUMP. WE'LL GO AHEAD AND BOLT THE PUMP UP. I'LL SHOW YOU HOW TO RUN ALL THE PLUMBING AND WE'LL BE GOOD TO GO. THE POWER STEERING PUMP BOLTS ON TO TWO EXISTING MOUNTING HOLES IN THE BLOCK AND HAS A BUILT IN ADJUSTMENT FEATURE.

ALRIGHT JERRY, IAN, YOU NOW HAVE POWER STEERING ON YOUR

FJ AND A CROSS OVER KIT. YOU HAPPY WITH HOW IT TURNED OUT?

(JERRY)>> I AM.

(IAN)>> ALRIGHT, GOOD STUFF. WELL ALL I'VE GOT TO DO NOW IS YOU GUYS GO AHEAD AND FINISH IT UP, GET A BELT ON THAT PUMP, BUILD YOUR

BUMPER, PAINT THAT FRAME RAIL, SEND US A PICTURE OF THIS THING OUT ON THE TRAIL. YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL HE'S OLD ENOUGH TO DRIVE IT. YOU CAN DRIVE IT UNTIL THEN. ALRIGHT, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. ALRIGHT, THANKS IAN, TIGHTEN THAT FITTING UP WILL YA.
