I did the intake heater element delete today. Couldn't find a plug so I made one. The plug if you are wondering is metric, M22 1.5mm thread pitch. I used blue loctite only when installing the plug in the intake.
Pics for your pleasure.
Everything that comes out with the heater:
Milling the flats for the hex, at first I was only going to put two flats on it but I figured that wouldn't be good enough for you guys so I did the hex and messed it up. lol
There it is:
See the hex isn't right because I did it quick and just eyeballed it.
I took my black lab to the vet today. I had my 7 year old sit in the 3rd row seat to keep the dog in the back. Coming home I looked in my rear view mirror and noticed the 7 year old asleep. A few minutes later I looked again and the lab was sitting in the 3rd row seat beside the sleeping girl. If the 12 year old had not been in the 2nd row seats the lab would have eventually been in the seat beside me.

Yesterday I had a new air filter installed. They did the install for free since I was returning for them to re-fix a job they did a couple days ago. Then when I got home I changed out the transfer case fluid with some Royal Purple. I can't wait to change out the f & r differential fluids, tranny fluid and install the new Bilstein steering stabilizer I ordered. I love my truck.

I have a problem with the passenger door panel. My wife likes to put her foot on the door pocket and it is broken off. Came like this when we bought it and I have tried numerous ways to get it fixed. Wound up getting a small "L" bracket and some screws and just put a bracket on it. Looks kinda "rigged" but it works until I can afford some new door panels.
I did a brake job on my front brakes....Now this may not sound like much, but I only ever did my first oil change myself about 2 months ago....I am mechanically inclined but found it easier to take it to someone to do it....No assistance other than the Forums....so im pretty happy.

I started work on the only rust on my X, the bottom of the drivers side front door. I pealed back the skin where it folds over the shell of the door, cleaned all the loose rust out and POR-15ed everything, folded the lip back and por'ed again. After the por set up a little I took a syringe and injected por-15 into the clip holes for the lower rubber piece. So the whole bottom crack of the door should be submerged and sealed once dry with POR-15. The passenger side front door just had a little minor surface rust just starting at the seam, I also cleaned that door up and injected it as well with por. Tomorrow I will be able to paint it back white and eventually put the rubber back on.
