Related the fuel lines under the intake manifold, hoping to get rid of a fuel leak. If that doesn't do it, I'll be replacing injector seals. Tomorrow, it's getting installed, along with a new turbo, as the older one has a nut bouncing off the impeller for probably 50k miles.

Ugh I gotta do the same to my NA... Every couple days I get a whiff of fuel on startup, and sure enough if I look it's a little damp under the rubber fuel lines...

Re: What did you do to your Baja today?


Hey gang. Anybody know what these rhomboid shaped pockets are for in the bed of the bajas? I figure such a dedicated space must have a deliberate purpose. I went ahead and built a bed divider that sits nicely in the rectangular spot within the rhomboid. It worked great in my 19 Ranger and I was able to modify that one to fit the Baja. I also did a brake fluid flush today on the Baja. Pedal is way better now. Not so spongy.
Anybody done a complete brake replacement. Hoses and calipers and rotors?

The best upgrade that can be done to the Baja are brakes with 4-2 pots. I hated my OEM feel and once I had them installed, the Baja didnt nose dive anymore. Ive done it all to the Baja since 2008, WOW

I installed Home made Sport Activity Lights. I bought a partial used set a while ago and had the brackets remanufactured.
I will have these brackets for sale when they come back from getting powder coated. $90/Set shipped
