Got the mud guards partially mounted as well as the skid plate... partially.
Thanks SurrealOne for the advice! after doing some research and looking at alot of pictures online I'm leaning towards 20% for the back window. I think that will probably be my best bet for visibility for my canopy on or off. that sucks about that carwash scratching your truck, never trusted those type of car washes. hope the repairs go well
Oh yeah, It was definitely a blast. After that week long trip of off roading and hikes, my truck has lots of scratches from tree branches and bushes. I ain't too worried about it though, the truck will get a new paint job eventually. lol
I pulled the boat out to a local lake 1.5mi from here! I set out bait traps, for next weekend fishing trip. Whisker Fishes, are waiting for me, LOL.
Got these finished today.
Mudguards from Bluex:
and the skid plate:
All painted up and looking nice
[maybe I should paint "95C1500" in the skid plate :lol:
Installed new weatherstrip on both doors...no more wind noise!
Yesterday I installed a second battery...
Today I installed mini leds in the panel under the tailgate, installed a tailgate lock, installed some halogen backup lights on the backrack, installed my Wilson cell booster, and gave the torsion bar bolts three full turns.
Tomorrow is oil change, rear diff drain/fill, and off road lights.
In the past weekend I drove about 120 miles round trip to and from camp for a work detail. Tonight the truck killed 100s of bugs on the highway and got all muddy on the trails so I will have to wash her tomorrow.
Now 199690.5 miles on the truck.
Removed the air system's annealed copper hard line everywhere except for the tank equalization line
Removed the rear air manifold
Removed the front air manifold
Replaced the 200psi pressure relief valves in each air manifold with 235psi pressure relief valves
Replaced the 140psi/175psi on/off (respectively) pressure switch in the front air manifold with a 160psi/200psi on/off (respectively) pressure switch
Replaced every compression fitting except those of the tank equalization line with brass push-to-connect fittings
Reinstalled the front air manifold
Reinstalled the rear air manifold
Re-plumbed from the rear QD to the rear air manifold with 300psi reinforced nylon tubing
Topped off the truck's coolant level
Tomorrow I need to replumb the front end of the truck (front air manifold to rear air manifold, front air manifold to front QD, front air manifold to air horn valve, front air manifold to coalescing filter), pressurize the system, leak test it, and try to decide if I'm taking the air tank carrier down to re-plumb the equalization line.
and when did this mod happen??? I just so happened to see a chevy truck pull into one of our bays at discount tire with this mod in his stock rear bumper.... got me thinkin about it
