    Test fit the ctis armor-cant wait to get all of theM done..as mentioned in OTHER threads, minor clearance modification to armor so it can be clocked correctly.

    Anyone WTB two brand new HET CTIS covers. [sold]

    Also started removing the 3 rear red clearance lights [I loath thru lock nut bolting] not getting the truck-lite lights installed tonight, going to convert them to riv nuts. Good part, the lights i got from fuzzy have a two wire robust harness, so I will eliminate the needless plugs.

    Where'd you find a set?

    I have two and have been planning to have something made if I can't locate a pair.

    Forward movement is always appreciated. It doesn't seem like much progress, but this is my first ever look at the belly of the R-T-Beast. Impressed with results.

    After almost a gallon of 5606, successfully deployed the cab forward and spare tire down. Appears to be pushing fluid out of the air over hyd box and looks like it had 10w oil in it..So will be draining/ cleaning and refilling..so some more work to do.

    Reis gives up another gift when she presents a pair of large vice grips clamped to the backside of the cab latch..Oh and i found the #4 stencil laying on the bumper-et.

    I am happy to say that she is in great condition overall. Does need a set of belts.

    Today will be spent cleaning, cleaning and did I Say cleaning..maybe disassembly of the air/hyd unit

    If fluid is pushing out of the breather on the air hyd box then it needs to be rebuilt. If it’s coming out if the cab latch too that is also rebuildable.

    Thanks Suprman, Cab latch is dry..yes, you hit it square on the breather..was just looking at the TM and a few great post on SS. Will see how she looks after disassembly. I may add the in line lubricator, in the future.
