Hello! I have had Susan for almost 5 years now and just finished up installing an in-tank fuel pump and FiTech go EFI system, but that has only been the latest in a long series of projects...
Here are some highlights of the last 5 years followed by more adventures and building to come!

Such a great looking vehicle. I loved the Cherokee Chief and the J10 when I was growing up. It is amazing how hard these vehicles are to find down here in AZ..

Been a long time since I updated! Been working on the fuel system and general maintenance. I was able to add some new features on Susan to help in the desert. New fold out awning, cheap amazon version, so we shall see how it holds up. Look ok to me as long as you're careful.

Little project for Susan, building a center console to hold water bottles and store stuff. I will also mount a 12V socket and the HAM radio with an extra mic clip for the CB. I'm not a carpenter but I think it's ok so far. More to come!20190905_173513.jpeg20190904_175510.jpeg20190903_175354.jpeg

Finished up the center console and got it mounted. Need to find some soft touch material for the lid/armrest and call it good enough!20190907_161948.jpeg20190907_162730.jpeg
