Lol. There will be a thread when I get started. I hope that you aren't implying that I have money though. Just different priorities. I don't have a wife, kids, or anything to tend to, so I don't have anything better to be doing. Lol. So yeah, I pass my time piddling with projects. It just happens that I have more time than married folk.

Yeah, you've hit the nail on the head there Travis. It's not a matter of having or not having money (or time for that matter) it's just a matter of priorities. I have a good job and make a decent living but with a wife and three kids, a house, etc. the truck can't be a priority for the money and time like I wish it could be. Ah, well...to everything there is a season. Right now the season belongs to my family for the most part. I'm just glad I get to use the leftovers to tinker.

If it isn't under warranty, I'll fix it myself.

Alright guys, so an up date.

Got the socket in, and put it all back together last night. Ran into some issues I'm not sure what to think. So when I went to tighten the nut, it acts like its catching, then releases, catches, then releases. I tightened it down snug but then could not freely spin the rotor. Backed it out (same thing, catches and releases) until I could spin the rotor. Got everything back in and when I went to put the hub back in it didn't want to go in all the way. Looked around the edges and the gaps were a little off. I wiggled it up and down and got it in, but had to really apply force to get it to stay in far enough to get that retainig ring in. Took two sets of hands. I WOULD of taken it all back out but it was dark, I was getting sleeted on, and it was cold. My main focus was to get it together for an emergency because we were going to be receiving a bad ice storm (for Texas anyway). 4x4 works, hi and low. Now, when I drive, it sounds like the dust cover is rubbing or something. It's a deeper sound than brake pads. Goes away when I apply brakes.

As soon as the weather passes, I will tear it all back apart.

Any ideas?
