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......

Heard a strange grinding sound the last day or two on my truck. Tracked it to a dragging brake on the rear passenger side. Rotor was smoked, past being able to be turned. So I drove to Orielly this AM in my wife's VW and grabbed a rotor and pads. Pulled it all apart and it still had the original pads on it from 2002! One pad was worn completely down to just bare metal, hence the ruined rotor. If this new set lasts as long as those did I will have gotten my $88 worth out of them.

I did brake work today too. Replaced both front rotors and pads. Also rotated tires for the last time on this set.

New cold air intake and a Flowmaster 40 series muffler. Sounds like a truck is supposed to. Pretty peppy out of a red light too! Too early to tell if it effected the gas mileage.

Question for all of the experts. After installing said parts, do I need to do a tune to maximize my efforts or will the computer handle it? I'm not really a gearhead!

Thanks in advance,

Elk Country

Just loaded up extra hurricane provisions and a buddy helped me mount up two extra spare tires for the truck.

Girding my loins to change the alternator.
I hate the serpentine belt.


I like to do my hunting BEFORE I pull the trigger!

Serpentine belts rock - much easier than fiddling with the adjusters on the old v belt system.

I had new Nitto M/T tires installed, flushed the brake system and had the front end aligned on my 2006 Duramax.

Been using mine to haul panels and materials lately, no real work done to it. I did install a new stereo with XM, rear view mirror with screen and backup camera in Momma's Durango.
