Probably 2 mins on road afterwards until I managed to park safely.

    Korby7, any more details on it?
    I made the frame and drawer frame out of 1" square tubing. Drawers are 1/16" steel sheet and top is 1/8" aluminum. I used to have 2 tool bags and a cooler strapped down for trail rides and id have to unstrap everything to get in the cooler or to get to tools. Everything is much more accessible. I'm excited to put it to good use. Here's a link to the build album for more pictures.

    Gotta love the rubber trans hose popping off the hardline, all I wanted was a damn McDonald’s Mcgrittle. Hopefully no damage was done, as soon as I felt it slip I shut it off and rolled it back to the side of the road. There is fluid EVERYWHERE under the truck.

    Nope, came off from a poor flare job from me. I bypassed the radiator a couple weeks ago. Redid the flares and the trans took 7 quarts to fill back up. Shifts fine, I think I got lucky.

    After nearly completing my summer repairs and upgrades I ran into an issue the necessitated a few days away from the H3. I installed new Moog ball joints on the lower control arms and faced the grease zerk fitting towards the inside to facilitate easier access to grease them. WRONG, after everything was reassembled and I was installing the tires I noticed the tire was turning really hard. To my suprise the outer CV was hitting the zerk. I changed from AC Delco because they hit the zerk too. So I was in a really bad mood for a few days ready to get a new ZR2 but cooler heads prevailed, disassembled the front end again, took the arms to the shop and he had a good laugh at my expense and he installed them facing the front for the cost of a case of Corona. You can see where the CV hit the zerk in the pic.

    Another day with transmission fluid on the ground. Luckily it started smoking BAD, so I had an indicator to pull over. Itís not the section of line that popped off earlier in the week but closer to the transmission.

    Iím just going to have a couple beers and call it a night. Iíll see what I find in the morning.

    After installing an external trans coooler, to bypass the internal one in the radiator, the rubber Derale transmission line split on me, spewing fluid everywhere, on two separate occasions. Then the double clamped rubber line blew off the OE steel line spraying fluideverywhere. Luckily I caught it each time and shut it down quickly. But that was the final straw. Decided to run braided stainless steel lines with 6 AN fittings, direct from the transmission to the external cooler (Tru-Cool M7B). I may go back and install a thermal bypass, for when I'm in colder climates. But not really needed right now in Texas. A little pricey, but the peace of mind is well worth it.

    I included a pic of the fittings and trans line I used, in case you're interested going that route. FYI, I used a 45 and a 90 degree fitting coming off the AN fitting adapter at the transmission.

    Make sure you're not having other pressure related issues, I had my trans cooler installed 6 years ago and never had an issue with the rubber hoses
