    So in a couple of days I'll be at my dads and we are going to do several things to my truck:


    • Installing AirAid MIT
    • Replacing engine belts and belt tensioners
    • Replacing alternator
    • Replacing rear diff cover seal and rear diff fluid
    • Replacing front wheel bearing/hub assemblies
    • Replacing front brake rotors
    • Replacing front brake pads
    • Installing 2" leveling kit

    Looking at that list, are there any last-minute tips or tricks I should know before I get started?

    Thanks!

    inventory the tools, then check it again. lots of rags, maybe some bandaids? busted knuckles are a pain.

    where did you get the air aid MIT? im looking at getting one.

    I agree. Inventory your tools. Stay organized and have a lot of patience. Nothing sucks more than getting POed at a bolt that will not come out when you are just starting. Then the rest of your day just goes down hill. If you can't get a bolt out. Spray her down with PB blast and go work on the other side. Hopefully that side goes smoothly and then you can attack the problem bolt.
