89 Trooper The Armadillo

Mon Jul 14, 2014 12:48 am

I should have done this a long time ago, but I never really could find the time. I am gonna try to update this when I can, but here are some of the things I have done over the past year, most have actually been in the past 6 months. The pics are kinda out of order, sorry for that.

Here are some more. To go along with the pic of the hood louvers, there is a video to show some more detail about them.



Watch on youtube.com

If I can ever get the time, this will be put on the front, not the whole thing though, just the lower half. I will post pics if I ever actually make it happen.

This is something I forgot to take a picture of. My stock shifter boot had rotten away from age and heat and i couldnt find a good one on any Troopers in the salvage yards but a late 70s or early 80s model Toyota pickup had one that worked really well in my opinion.

That actually looks good. Do you have some sort of flange holding it down?

The metal flange came from the toyota too.

Thank you. A friend of mine liked it but i couldnt find him the same one when i went to pullapart. I instead found him the one from a sidekick and it looked similar but it was a rectangle instead of a square.

That boot looks like it works great. have you considered painting the flange gloss black to match the boot or try to color match the carpet a bit so it isn't as noticeable?

Re: 89 Trooper The Armadillo

Nope, I like the metal flange showing, but I have very odd tastes, lol.

I finally took some pics of the hitch I made when I first got the Armadillo, only took me 4 years to get around to it. Unfortunately, the pics are not that great since the bumper is in the way, but hopefully you can get the general idea from them and see what I did. The part that can not be seen is the 4 bolts that go into the main mounting point, the gussets are in the way.

*Added picture on 11-11-2014. In going through some old pictures from back when I did the hitch in 2010, I managed to find one that my wife took, if you make it bigger you can get a good look at the hitch and how its mounted.
