    I work from home office nowdays so put so few miles itll be a while before I fuel up (especially at these prices im still on the $3.20 stuff). When I do ill post up but I cant imagine it wont be better just based on what im feeling I e had to input on the pedal compared to what it was. But again i was at 200k miles and my plugs were not looking that great either so a major maintance if nothing else so im sure it didnt hurt the MPG

    there's gotta be an Addicts song title or album title to help me associate you with 35s lol. Sadly I never got into the Addicts. I've only heard a small number of songs a few times from them.

    How’d that happen? You said 33’s and I quoted you and it was 35’s in your quote. You edited as I clicked on quote.

    Yup, I would diagnose with the calipers off before ordering bearings etc. When doing MC work on my truck I had issues which led to the calipers sticking.

    If it's the master cylinder, changing it out isn't bad at all. Hardest part is bleeding the MC properly, then bleeding the rest of the truck. A couple hours tops.

    For the bearings, believe you'll have to take the spindles off to press them correctly, not sure if that's the case for 2WD though. Taking out the spindles is a bit more time consuming but not too bad. If you don't have a press, you can pay a machine shop press them. A little bit more involved then changing the MC but could be done in a day too.

    I want to say @Darkness has a good write up on the bearings in his build thread - his truck is 2WD.

    Steering wheel was canted to the right a few degrees when driving straight. I loosened the steering shaft pinch collar and rotated it one tooth.

    Make a witness mark on the steering rack side first. It's easier to slide the collar up towards the wheel once you remove the bolts and tap a flat blade screw driver in to spread the collar. I managed to do all the adjusting through the driver's side wheel well.

    Not required. I cut this stuff into 4x12" and 6x12" strips and laid it over the header tubes where I could. It's a 1/2" thick high temp fiberglass insulation with aluminum cover. Not a full 360* all around tube wrap. I will say though stainless zip ties fucking suck.

    So I suck and spent an hour getting the LBJ loose. One joint. Took me that long to realize where I needed force. Here are the Moog and solo next to each other.

    If I’m feeling it I may swap the dash today. Airbag cover will be here later so I’ll have to swap that when I have it.

    I managed to accomplish a few things this weekend. I started with playing around with vinyl wrap and attempted covering the lower chrome piece on the bumper. I was hoping it would match the gunmetal on my wheels, but not quite right. For my first attempt "wrapping", it looks okay from 10 feet away and the sun in your eyes.

    [​IMG]

    Then I went about replacing my fuel pressure regulator and damper. I thought I would replace the intake plenum gaskets and clean out the carbon buildup in the intake with some cleaner. Weird though, there was quite a bit of oil pooled up in the plenum. Is that normal? It seems really out of place. What could cause that?

    [​IMG]

    I also decided to clean out the rats nest that had accumulated in there (damn cottonwood trees) and tried to clean out some of that buildup too.

    That's it! I need to stop huffing freon so I can understand all this jibberish. :D

    Actually, it's a good explanation. I mostly thought purging the system was primarily an environmental thing but it's good to know the science.

    I got pulled over doing 27 on a 25 mph road.

    Also a 30 minute registration check & lecture for me checking my car passenger side was locked from the outside before attempting to run back to the dorm to get to a party.

    Middle of the swap. Set the red arc brake controller knob in its final home. Need to find a usb that fits between the outlets and I’m happy

    I’ve been too busy to catch up. But, the damn arms are in. I kinda suck because what it thought was 3-4 hours became 8.
    I should have known. More on these things later.

    Nah. Mine comes off the back of the head unit. It's primarily there for the purpose of attaching an iPod and doing firmware updates for my head unit.

    I have two-port high-amp cig lighter chargers for charging my phone.
