    Lets talk offroad upgrades .....

    If I pulled the differential carrier out, and didn't change any of the parts, do I still need to re-do the backlash? Or if I'm installing the parts I just took out, should it be the same as before?

    M1008 Power Steering Trouble Shooting

    Well now that I've topped it off the humming has gone away and the steering works fine. Now I can hear the other problems..... Apparently I have what I would describe as between a belt squeal and a clickity-clack noise that is definitely relative to the speed when I'm not on the throttle. I'm...

    M1008 Power Steering Trouble Shooting

    Just went out and checked the fluid level. Took the cap off, and can't even see any fluid. I'm guessing this is an issue.

    M1008 Power Steering Trouble Shooting

    A few weeks ago now I had to get pulled out of a bit of deep water. Deep enough that water was definetly in the engine compartment, but not deep enough that it got to the intake and flooded me out. As soon as I was back on dry land, my power steering was completely gone. I pulled over, left...

    Manual Locking Hub - Something went wrong ...

    I'm in the process of rebuilding my axle and when I pulled the locking hub off one side, it came out pre-dissembled. The problem is that I can't figure out how to get it back together. Can anyone suggest and tips or tricks? Or is this one junk at this point?

    Progress is being made. To get the seals out I found a few washers that matched my tube diameter, which I then was able to put down with a pipe and pound on. Inner seals popped right out. New seals all around, locker installed. Have to work out some issues on one of the locking hubs.

    OK, what's the secret to getting the inner axle seals out? I had a 1.5" pipe on hand and I was pushing it down the axle tube until I thought I was hitting the ridge of the seal, then pounding on it. I almost pounded the truck of the stands and that seal didn't pop out. I'm trying to avoid...

    I plan on leaving the axle on my truck to work on. And I'm also planning on leaving the knuckles on if possible. So far I've ordered 2 inner and 2 outer axle seals. Grease to re-grease the wheel bearings when I put them back together. And a spindle nut socket. And while I have everything...

    Lets talk offroad upgrades .....

    Got around to looking into my axles. Opened the front filler plug and almost a gallon of grey sludgy fluid came out. Not even sure how that much fluid could have even gotten in there. And that's a gallon out before I've even taken the diff cover off. Looks like I'll be going this route as...

    No reason to feel sad for me. I bought this vehicle with the intention of pushing it hard right from the start and having it be simple enough to learn to work on myself. End of the day it's just money. So far my next steps are: -Hose pressure wash the underside really well. No reason to...

    Lets talk offroad upgrades .....

    Got into a bit of fun over the weekend. Kept the air intake above water so she kept on running and never swamped out. Although with the fan running, I'm sure it swallowed enough. Not to mention the water over the bench seat and some wet pants. First question, anything I should check to make...

    Receiver Hitch Mount

    Tagging in to see what you end up going with. I could dump the spare tire, but I'd like to keep the pintle.
