  1. I have three 720s at the house and I think I only have one unbroken sun visor clip that is on the 4x4 I am working on! All the other originals are broken. If you have or know someone with a 3D printer you can print a decent replacement for them. Someone on here uploaded the design to thingiverse.
  2. Even the outer surface of the head looks too clean. Looks cleaner than the block. I am wondering if maybe someone changed the head gasket and possibly the head as well and never went back and re-torqued the bolts after a few temp cycles and ended up blowing the gasket again. I have a machinist straight edge to check for flatness, will for sure do that before reassembly.
  3. The head is coming off because the truck has a blown head gasket. I am starting to think this is the second time it has had a blown head gasket. The head looks too clean. I'll try to get a pick in the next day or so. Looks like the head was either cleaned by a shop before resurfacing or the PO put a reman head on it possibly.
  4. Finally got around to working on this truck some today, got side tracked with work and a hernia surgery. Started tearing into it to replace the head gasket in order to get it running so I could drive it around a bit to check everything out before doing more work on it. I was hoping since the truck is supposed to have so few miles on it that the motor had never been torn into but that is not the case. The exhaust bolts and nuts came off easily which never happens and the cam pulley bold had been scuffed up some. Looks like it may have been by an impact wrench. On top of that when I
  5. Depending on where you are in NC, this truck is listed on Facebook Marketplace in Lynchburg, VA for $700. The add says it needs ignition and clutch cable. Could probably get it for cheaper than that and have plenty of spare parts.
  6. I have a whole bed assembly I'll sell you for $1600 as well lol
  7. It was a local guy who started his own business doing auto glass. Don't remember the name but have his card somewhere. I'll look at the windshield when I get a change to see who makes it.
  8. Yes, some companies still have these in stock, I had mine replaced recently. The biggest issue is the rubber seals they use, at least from my experience. I ended up having to add some RTV to my seal to get it to stop leaking.
  9. Was this brush guard designed for a 720 or are you using one made for another truck? I am asking because I have a 4x4 720 I am fixing up and would like a brush guard for it but ones made for the 720 are getting hard to find. I'm hoping one off another model truck would fit with little to no modifications required.
  10. Awesome, I'll have to keep my eyes open for those. Especially the black leather powered seats those would be perfect.
  11. What year maxima and did it raise the seat height any? Seems most replacement seats raise the seat height and I do not want the seat raised at all. I have tried civic seats that were way too tall and most people are saying neon and rodeo seats also raise the seat height.
  12. I am really torn on what to color to go with on this truck. If I decide to stick with the factory blue has anyone found any of the spray on "dye" that matches the factory blue interior color? The interior is in good shape but some of it is faded. If I don't go back with the factory blue then I will most likely go with tan exterior and a black interior. I have always liked tan on the 4x4s and I definitely prefer the black interior.
  13. I would not have wanted to go hunting with the original owner of this truck. Not only did he shoot a hole in the roof, he also shot one in the floor!
