I put those same bushings on the front of mine. I can’t remember if I put any type of lube on them or not, but they squeak like crazy in cold weather when I go over the speed bumps at work. I dont know if I’m going to try to disassemble and put some SuperLube on them or just replace with rubber ones.

Today was the lightbar

Unlike most, I tucked it under my roof rack. First for protection but also to keep the glare off the hood. Driving off road last night thru rain and fog I discovered another advantage. There is no reflection off the fog once the fog falls into the shadow over the hood.

Great light, $56.00 off Amazon

I wired it plus the A-Pillar lights thru the factory fog light switch. These LEDs was $62.00 on Amazon.

Took the NP231 out for rebuild, replaced rear sway bar link bushes with poly bushes, cut a hole in the frame to be able to remove the transfer case belly pan cos the nut on the inside decided to free-wheel - put stainless bolts in front warn bumper, removed the exhaust system to straighten it all up after duning had shifted all the angles out of whack, re-oiled k&n filter, replaced transmission mount...swore a bit

Where did you get the trailer?

Or did you make it?

I’d like to see more info on it.
Bought the M100 Military trailer over near Yakima, It was listed on CL.
PO told me it was built in 1945, after its military service it was bought by a farmer.
it was resold in the mid 60s, and thats where the paper works starts.

I have a few more pics of it in my build thread:

Painted the rear mc fender plates body color today. It's still growing on me but I feel it looks better in person than in the photo. Prehaps because the black looked like a fender. Once the paint cures a few more days I'll throw the fenders on and see how it looks.
