    Repowering the Amigo: Planning out the next steps

    Good evening. In the past, I had a small 4x4 that I rewired, with a lot of help from folks here and elsewhere. Sadly, once the electrical was figured out, the entire engine went south, and a replacement wasn't going to be possible. That vehicle, a Daihatsu Rocky, was small, something I sought...

    1998 Isuzu Amigo: Let's Try This Again

    Hello! Some time ago, I was attempting a build of a very small 4x4...and after two head gaskets and associated other worries, that little oddball has retired to the boneyard in the sky. Or is now razor blades. About the time I punted that thing to the boneyard, I looked for the heck of it at...

    Onboard air with ARB: questions

    Hello to all. I just posted this question to the electrical board here, as they have been awesome with helping me navigate and understand what I will do with my electrical system. This does include an electrical question about a compressor, and while this isn't a straight recovery question, the...

    New Question: Power requirements for ARB onboard air

    So, a lot has come together recently. I have a Daihatsu Rocky, and the offroad bits for it can be hard to source. I'll keep to the point for this thread here: I finally found a locker for my rig. Even though the Rocky rear end is essentially a 7" Toyota, you can't simply throw a 7" in there...

    Underhood fuse/relay box

    Years ago, when I had a full-size Suburban, I saw a nifty large blue box that included relays and fuses that could be fit under the hood to run all manner of power to and from. The Suburban is long gone, but my new mini expo rig (for short expos, of course!) is a Daihatsu Rocky. My electrical...

    70-series flatbed with camper and euro plates, side of the road, NW PA yesterday

    Hello there: feel free to delete this thread if needed, but I saw what looks like a unicorn where I live: a 70-series flat-bed with a nice camper and euro plates. Definitely did a triple-take when I saw it! was by the side of the road at the state line between New York and...

    Two-Thirds Mad: 2003 Suburban 1500 LT

    Condensed story: had a K5 Blazer, couldn't kill the electrical gremlins, I junked it. Had a 1986 V20 Suburban, and loved it, but it was lacking a lot of creature comforts, and I did not have the barn doors I wanted. Plus, I wanted to throw our old minivan off of a cliff. So, I looked and looked...

    2003-ish Suburban roof rack question

    OK, so I have the rails on my roof like everyone else. I saw this thread here: ...and I'm intrigued. However, I get worried about the crossbar, and then the rack on top of that. Can you simply bolt it to the...
