Added the final piece to my temp air intake she now has an Air Charge Temperature Sensor after a little ingenuity 😁. Then I finished putting on the last of the junk yard haul YAY!! cup holders.

I ordered the Chevy RB172 spring bushings to replace the bushings in my 97 transmission crossmember. Has anybody ever done it? Any tricks I should know?

Giving my truck more money than it deserves.
Moved my rear hanger as far back as I could.

I'm excited to see what leaf springs can do. I hope to keep up with my coil spring friends...

There sure isn't much room to move back there...

It appears you found ALL of it.

My 2011 rear differential now has a drain plug.



And I discovered that I narrowly missed getting a flat tire at some point.

Friday I parked the Missing Linc on the front driveway, which is pretty steep after they “fixed“ the road, facing in/down. I rarely park anything out front.

Sooo, when I got up for church today and headed out, there was a nice little grease spot under the rear end. So when I got home, I pulled it in the back and checked the diff level. The level was fine, but once I was underneath, it’s obvious it’s been leaking for a little while because there’s a little oil spray around the underside of the truck in line with the universal which was also wet. So I ordered a pinion seal.

I once again ask the wise ones to chime in on what I need to know when I change out the seal.

God forbid they should all work okay at the same time…,

Looks good. I like how it wraps around the sides.
Could add a step loop on the corners.

I bought some components... did my own thing.

The double shear hinge is pretty nice... and a bit spendy. 4x4 innovation I believe is the company.

I got a Destaco latch... rubber bump stop and the spring pin from another company.

The bumper is an AOR.

cool I was looking at the 4x innovation hinge, probably gonna end up buying a whole ready to weld kit maybe theirs. because I’m too lazy to go buy metal. I also only have a grinder to cut stuff and it gets old blow through death wheels on these projects.
