    Just a slight difference... good for reclaiming space for storage. Drilling holes today and laying things out... I think I got those holes where those directions said to. 😁. Something in the back of my mind keeps calling me with that big round hole... πŸ€”πŸ”ˆ πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ₯“πŸ₯“πŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒ

    Mike, the only issue I really had was the flange at the manifold. They required some grinding to seat properly on the doughnut do to the spacing of the studs in the manifold. This second kit took much less grinding than the first one so I can't say how much is needed. I reused some of the...

    Luck was on my side... πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ. Always check where those wires went that you shoved out of the way while doing your lift and painting! 24v+heat of exhaust pipe = exhaust leak! Still need the wires for the box as they will be utilized for a DC to DC charger. 24v arc welding results!!! Dynomax...

    I started seeing a girl named Dana... axle seal replacement is under way. Both axle shafts got new u-joints. Despite being 36 years old they still turned freely and they argued about leaving their long time home. I also installed new slingers, spindle bearings, and new seals. Had I known I was...

    With the opening cut for the sink it’s time for a faucet. Keeping it simple with a hand pump version. Sanded and applied three coats of Waterlox. The cutting board came with the sink so I'm refinishing it to match better... πŸ™„. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ₯“πŸ₯“πŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒ

    Back to some interior work. I’ve had the straps for a while but finally putting them to uses. Each one is rated at 350 lbs so they better hold the fridge in! Fits in nicely πŸ‘. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ₯“πŸ₯“πŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒ

    When you want to drive it bad enough you vacuum a quart out of the front diff so it stops leaking... 🀣. Waiting on parts... Of note I got up to 55 without vibration so I think my 8 degree shims might be good. I felt the tires a little, they convinced me to put balancing bags in them but they...
