Default LOW budget & SLOW progress, introducing Cochese!

This is more of a way to track my own progress on this truck, as I haven't really documented my endeavors before.
It's a 92 with 126k miles, KA24E, 5 speed, no a/c, no power options besides steering, but it did get factory fog lights.


How I got it. Broken marker light, nose in the air, but everything works.


Ngk plugs and wires, Napa cap rotor and air filter, new battery with custom hold down.


Dirty interior shot, installed my trusty 1 ball knob

Since then I've installed KYB shocks because I got tired of floating down the highway.
Leaf spring bushings were looking sad, so I installed my first set of poly bushings. Totally worth the effort, firmed up the back of the truck nicely.



How she sits now. Loosened up the torsion bars a bit, cheap amazon side marker light.
Up next is the junkyard Delta H4 kit I had on my Cherokee, it has a light bar so it won't miss them.

Thanks guys, also not pictured was the basic stereo installation. More stuff I had laying around, Panasonic cd player replaced the functional factory cassette player. If I still had my tapes I may have rocked it longer.
6.5 pioneer 3 ways replaced the working factory speakers. Didn't have to cut the plastic behind the panel or modify the door panel.
This install I ordered up the dash kit, antenna and harness adaptor, also from amazon, made it too easy.
Needs- an oil change soon, tires eventually (which means I may as well get 16 or 17in rims too right) secure the battery...
Wants- 16's most likely, leaning towards the front/rear bell tech sway bar package, more poly, drop spindles, 2in blocks, herculiner the bed, newer style front bumper, roll pan, a "unique" steering wheel, tint the fog lights yellow, window tint, etc.

Headlights done, of course the delta ring didn't match the Nissan buckets and didn't seem removable, so I cut the bottom edge of the stock ring and stacked it on the delta housing. Problem solved, harness run and hooked up.

The engine likes to sit at 1200 rpm randomly till I give it a little rev, then dips to 800. I cleaned the tb from the top when the air filter was off, but it persists. It's not annoying enough to warrant taking off the throttle body, yet. Haven't looked for an iss yet

Update, cleaned deeper into the throttle body, found a very small hole near the blade. Hosed the tb down with cleaner, a little wd on the linkage and it runs even better than it already did.

I pulled the huge rear bumper, looked at factory "roll pans" at the pickapart they're not that great.
I did find something that was cheaper and should look better when I'm done with it.
More to come
