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.
New 1900lb leaf springs and Ubolts came in for the 85dodge so I did the drivers side Sunday with Shock and new caliper.

The anti American Constitutional party. Wants to dismantle your rights, limiting every aspect of your constitutional rights. Death by 1000 cuts is the tactic. Each cut bleeds your constitutional rights so they can control you. Control is the goal.
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.
