Dropping it off at the front end alignment/repair shop to hopefully repair damage done from a 25mph run in with a rocky side ditch.

I bought a kit to install the Tracker power steering unit on my Samurai I've had in the garage for 8 months.

Pull the rear diff cover and drained out the old fluid, inspected, cleaned and sealed it up. Need to fill it back up tonight.

Replaced all the seals in the Dana 44 (that passenger side inner seal is a hassle, but the pinion seal needed done also) and installed the rebuilt axles this morning. On my project 85 dodge 318/4speed 1/2ton shortbed. Next is the Wheel bearing/hubs. New discs and calipers, master cylinder. Then I will start a complete rebuild of the Chrysler 9 1/4 and rear brake system.

I can FINALY say (HOPEFULLY) that my 2007 5.9L Cummins will have a transmission worthy of this truck in the next week or two! Went to see a guy a gun. Ended up giving him the gun, cash and my truck for a triple plate billet torque converter, billet pump, Kevlar bands, new transmission electronics and a rebuild! I cant wait! No more nervous nelly pulling our 35' toy hauler!

Drove my 2002 F350 SRW 4x4 on a 1250 mile round trip to southern CO for family vacation. Pulled a Polaris RZR4 a bud loaned me on a utility trailer I built in my spare time the last couple months. Had another 6-700 pounds of "stuff" piled in the bed.

Old truck did fine but I do need to hunt down a set of stock wheels and tires for traveling. Factory gearing was 4:10s but the 35" Toyo MTs the previous owner hung on it makes the effective ratio more like 3:40. That's way too high for the 260hp 5.4 that makes all of it's power up around 3000 rpm. But I just kept it out of 6th gear and buzzed along at 2750rpm at 65mph. Checked mileage at every fill up and averged almost exactly 10mpg. Used one quart of oil.

I wish it was a diesel or better yet a newer SuperDuty with a 6.2 gas but for a guy who just started over by moving thousands of miles, buying a house, starting a new career, and raising a little family on one income for now, getting by with a pretty good old $5k truck allows us to take our little boy on vacation and me to go on hunting trips with my family. I guess I'll keep it running for a while longer if I can.

New calipers on the front of the Wrangler. I put new rotors and pads on a few weeks ago and had one of the old calipers promptly lock up on me. That was fun.


Now with even more aplomb

Put a new set of struts, new springs already installed, on the 2010 GMC. Amazing ride difference between the new ones and ones with 122k miles on them. Kinda knew that going in tho.

Went ahead and put the new wheels and mud tires on. I was going to wait another month or two, but the rain season came early this year. Both my daughter's deer tag and my bull elk tag are in areas that can get really nasty, and I don't want to waste a day being stuck. I also really dislike chaining up, but will do it if it's that bad.

Changed the rear differential gear oil and greased the driveline yesterday. Went with Amsoil gear oil on huntsonora's recommendation. Changed the engine oil last weekend. Routine maintenance is all I ever get to do because it's a 1st gen Tundra. grin

New brake rotors and pads all the way around, along with axle seals. Bigger hit than I wanted at this time......
