March Truck Work

Thought I get this one started for a new month. Thinking about picking up a cheap set of Flowtech headers today to replace my cracked exhaust manifold. Constantly ticking and setting lean codes. I want to get a set of longtubes from Summit but with the dollar's slide, they'd run me about $440 + tax while Flowtech shorties are $269 + tax. Really waffling on this decision...

Because I want to be just like Chris, I'm going to look buy a pillar gauge pod from a kid off of craigslist this afternoon. $40...

I have an addiction...

Well, change of plans. Apparently, the exhaust leak sound I've got is in fact rod knock. I didn't crack an exhaust manifold on the trip up the Coq. last month, but actually spun a bearing. Took the truck into my exhaust shop for some help tracing the "exhaust leak" and got the bad news. So now I don't know what we're going to do. Tina and I are going to talk it over tonight but its not looking good for old "Solid Gold".

I think I need a beer...

I must say that sucks. Maybe have a couple beers.

I finally got tired of looking for the rod to drop my spare tire hanger so I made my own. Cost me less than 6 bucks. Not as pretty as the Ford piece but does the trick and the spare is where it should be.
Fixed a bad power connection on my sirius as well.

That tends to cut down on the surprises. Sometimes they are not good.

You could clear the trail for every one else.

Was thinking of doing the zoodad mod today but don't really feel like tromping around in all the snow we got last night.
