Does your Mazda have the 4.0? OHV or DOHC?

I got some more work done to it 2 weeks ago. I tried to upload my pictures to the image hosting site but I can only do 2 pictures at a time for some reason that I don’t know. But anyways, I extended and reinforced the radius arms. They’re strong as heck now.

I haven’t updated this in a while. I was out hunting back in December and locked up the transmission. I knew it was a crappy transmission but tried to get through the winter with it. Due to the location and the amount of snow, I had to leave it there all winter until it melted off.

I got it home 2 weeks ago and ordered a new transmission. I upgraded it to a M5OD-r1 which is significantly stronger than the FM-146 that was stock. I still need to find a shifter for it because the old shifter won’t fit the new transmission.

But along with that, I bought new tires and rims. I wanted to buy the Goodyear Wrangler Authority A/T’s but they aren’t made in a 33” tire. I decided to try the Milestar Patagonia M/T because they’re around the same price. I’ll try to remember to post how I like them next spring.

Yesterday I rebuilt the rusted out exhaust so the dogs aren’t getting gassed out and put a muffler on. She’s nice and quiet now!

I’ve been putting some miles on the truck, hunting. I think I have around 7,500 or 8,000 miles so far. I’ve made several adjustments to the suspension and have more adjustments to make. But I am pretty happy with the setup over all. The tires are doing good when they’re aired down. The suspension is fairly smooth compared to my F350 and I have no complaints about the differential lockers. The dog box is working out great but I need to finish it. I have to build a frame for the storage box lid, paint the wood, put carpet on it and installed tie downs.
I’m trying a couple different ways to link to a new image hosting site here:

I used a image hosting site. There are several free ones out there, but once you upload the pictures you will never be able to delete them. They will always be uploaded to the system of that company. Just so you guys know.

But it’s simple to use, you just go to the hosting site and upload your pictures. They will have several different options for viewing them. So far I haven’t found one I’m happy with. I’m no tech guy at all and I’m still learning to use them myself.

Here is one that I have used and like the most so far.
