Well and I imagine it would have been quite heavy, although you did say you had a couple friends helping you

yes i did. it would have taken me longer to disconnect the tank and remove it, then spend the extra 2-3 minutes lining up the wrench with the nut on it in the small space.

A small update fr my truck. the leafs have settled, and the truck is sitting 2" taller in the back then the front, which is perfect. i've been having some trouble with the E-fan fuse, i need to bump it to a large 50 amp as 30's are blowing when im on the trails. Waiting on a email back for fender timeline, the order has been in for a week now. im really just wanting to get the fenders on and stand back and take a look at how the truck sits. My goal is the prerunner effect, without the costly parts. i have a couple of guys saying go camburg, cage it and run a 4 link. Im still not sold on the idea of emptying my savings account, plus i just want a sweet looking daily driver.


I recently regaped my plugs, seafoamed the truck, coolant overflow was flushed out, and my K&N was cleaned and reoiled.


my small to do list includes the following.

~close out E-fan shroud
~50amp e-fan fuse
~replace LED tailgate bar
~remove scratches from last offroad trip. (their bad)
~move XM antenna off roof
~fenders installed and painted to match
~pull bedsides (how far can i pull them without creasing the bed??? looking for 2")
cb antenna wire run
~possibly move XM radio someplace less obvious (cig lighter type now)
~digital temp guage, and voltage guage
~black out inside of headlights
~check wheel bearings
~new pads and shoes all around
~OHC sensor replace (mine is 27* off on the temp at any given time)
~Clean and shampoo interior ASAP (got dirty last wheeling trip)


im sure theres a few more things, along with some regular maintenance that should be done. updates will come as i have time to do things. alot of that list will be this week, as my girlfriend is doing exams and wont be seeing her for the rest of the week.
