    You got the “union” correct?

    I bought a new breather for $12? Iirc. Ran the hose/breather up to the gas tank and zip tied it. This way I can swirl the breather cap easily with a gorilla arm twist versus removing the brake light. You could go to big box and buy a lawn mower fuel filter (in lieu) if you didn’t want to wait on a breather. I’d put that in the brake light.

    The A/C does alter the RPM by design. Those other things you discussed I have no idea.

    Front gas stank strap BROKE during playtime after removal. Very weak, and pitted metal.

    Also, the rubber "boot" on OG strap "heat welded" itself to the rubber coating on the tank in some spots.

    So uh... what do I do about the bare metal spots on my tank now?

    Replaced the transfer case fluid today. Removed the skid row plate to do the front diff. Started inspecting everything and found my driver side CV boot is torn. It only lasted 25k miles. That's what I get for letting Meineke use a cheap one. Decided to hold off on replacing the front diff fluid and just wait to do it all at once. I'm going to order that ECGS bushing and do both CV's at the same time.

    Also noticed the bushing for my LCA doesn't look to great either. Not too worried about those though.

    Did my transmission fluid today! Rainy day here in aurora illinois! I put in exactly 4 quarts and its got me right on the top of the hot side of the dipstick. 4 quarts of dex/merc is the perfect amount. Also siphoned out the powersteering fluid and filled it with the dex/merc.

    Thanks to @empty_lord I now have my parking lights back! Scion sockets were the way to go! Used El cheapo Big Gurll 1157s

    Tried to remove the old rear shocks. I was able to remove the lower bolt, and I couldn't get the top to budge. I even asked Pops to help.

    His reccomendation was to cut it off, torch it off, OR contract this job out to someone who has proper facilities, and tools.

    I will update this with pictures later. I cannot upload them right now. NG

    Put a pair of vise grips on the shaft and the longest wrench you can get on it. It'll either move or snap off, either way problem solved.

    Irwin vise grips as tight as I could get them, and they still lock. They damaged the shaft slightly, and the longest breaker bar with cheater pipe we had. I felt the nut start to "roll" on my 6 point socket. I removed the set up we had, and verified it was starting to come loose, but it was only damaging the nut. Crusty up there. If my gut told me it was going to come loose I would have continued.

    I just cut the shaft under the perch, then punch the top out through the bottom

    I swapped sensors bank to bank, to see if the code followed the swap, it did not. So I know it’s not the sensor:(

    Started pulling out the shelving and Strut rails to install in the 2015!

    It turns out that the length of strut I need for the new one is exactly the same as is already in the 2001 so I will save that money Today and just resuse the old strut.
    Not sure yet about the configuration of the new one in back just yet but should be similar to the old one I imagine too.

    I wish I could find some 8' drawers for a reasonable price!

    But no really that's exactly how I felt today laying under the truck, even with safety squints on old metal particles, and rust flakes kept making their way into my fucking eyes.

    Can't see nuthin, cut me mick...
