Instead of installing an expensive car alarm system or using ineffective methods to prevent your car from getting stolen, learn how to install an inexpensive, hidden kill switch.
This kill switch is easy to install and anyone can do it at home with basic tools. It can also work along with your car’s current alarm system. How it works is it cuts the power to the fuel pump so you cannot jump start the car, hot wire it, or even push start it. In order to steal the car you need to tow it! It is better than a batter quick disconnect because your computer wont restart and you wont lose your radio stations.

Quality axles are not easy to manufacture. Let’s run through the process.
1. Cut a solid beam to the correct length
2..Couplemate developed a program to use a roughing tool, a finished tool, and a threading tool.
3. The first tool used in the video is a roughing tool. This tool removes most of the steel before we arrive at the finishing profile.
4.The finishing tool skims over the profile and produces a journal within 0.02mm.
5. Once the finishing tool has done its job, a threading tool is engaged which also cut a thread within 0.02mm of its specification.
6. The CNC technician then manually fits front and back bearing to ensure a tight fit.
7. The axle nut is then tested for tightness.
8. Finally, if all the steps above pass then the axle is removed from the lathe.
Most Powerful Street-Legal Ford in History: All-New Shelby GT500 Is the Most Advanced Mustang Ever for Street, Track or Drag Strip.
Arriving fall 2019 to join its GT350 stablemate, Shelby GT500 is designed to be the ultimate driver’s car, ready to attack on all fronts – on the drag strip*, producing more than 700 horsepower** via its first-in-class dual-clutch transmission with launch control, and on the track, with its race-bred chassis, Ford Performance-spec Michelin Pilot tires, massive Brembo brakes and performance aerodynamics, and on the street…
The heart of Shelby GT500 performance begins with a 700-plus-horsepower 5.2-liter supercharged V8 engine. It’s mated to an ultra-fast TREMEC 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and calibrated by Ford Performance with state-of-the-art drive mode technologies. As the most powerful production Mustang ever, the Shelby GT500 powertrain is the primary enabler for the ultimate performance that follows.

Against everything I read on the internet, I decided to TRY and install a 3” lift. Although I COULD have gotten it in there, if the strut extended all the way while offroading it would ABSOLUTELY break an axle. DO NOT DO 3” LIFT. So I took that off and just put the 23” aggressive mud tires, no lift needed YET and I ordered another lift that is 2”. hoping to get this up to a side by side SXS UTV status!
I do a test of the new tires, offroad, rock climb articulation, hill climb, mountain and mud. Does really good!
I ordered a CV boot too, mine was ripped so I showed my way of making it hold dirt out a little longer…
Dihatzu Hijet (translates to midget in Japanese) Climber Mini-truck, this one is a 1992, 7th Gen, S83P, 660cc Minitruck. The “climber” means it has rear axle lock. Amir has about 60 units in stock, he was very helpful.
Researching online I did find l lot of information, but Amir explains a LOT more than I knew, he has been in the business for 15 years. Plus if Bubbles in Trailer Park Boys has one, it HAS to be cool!
Don’t forget you’re buying a used vehicle, check it all out, they’re over 25 years old! Some are in much better shape than others. Check for leaks, CV boots ripped, Loose suspension, Clutch slippage, clunks etc. Just like any used vehicle

More info (Wikipedia):
The Daihatsu Hijet (Japanese: ダイハツハイゼット) is a cabover microvan and pickup truck produced and sold by the Japanese automaker Daihatsu since 1960. Despite the similarities between the Hijet name and Toyota’s naming scheme for its trucks and vans (Hiace and Hilux), the name “Hijet” has been in use for Daihatsu’s Kei trucks and Microvans since 1960, over two decades before Toyota took control. “Hijet”, when transliterated into Japanese, is very similar to “Midget”, one of Daihatsu’s other mini-trucks. The Hijet competes in Japan with the Honda Acty, Subaru Sambar, Mitsubishi Minicab, Suzuki Carry and the Nissan Clipper.
