Thanks :)

I finished the brakes on the Dana this week. I put new bearings and seals in the t-case. I got the t-case half way back together when I realized that the pump retaining bracket was worn...

Thanks man. I'm really enjoying this project. But the hard part is yet to come...installation. At least I have a donor frame from the front spring shackles.

Thanks. Actually it's a Cannon Powershot Elph 1501S. It wasn't terribly expensive. But anymore, 10 megapixels is pretty common. My wife got it for me for documenting this project (my old one...

Update - Very Pleased

Well, I've had the truck officially on the road for about 10 months now. So far, I've replaced some wheel bearings, changed out the the calipers, and replaced the crap-o-matic front wheel hub...

Thanks. I think I'm working too slow and making things perfect. I've never setup axles before (also makes things feel slow), but the workshop manual pretty much laid everything out. We'll see if I...

Nick's 1996 Project

So...I guess this is it. I haven't been very active lately on the forums.

I spent most of last summer building my dream workshop. But that's finished now. So onto the truck projects? Well at...

Mine sits for most of winter (stupid salt!). Even in the summer it'll go weeks w/o running. I've been using DieselKleen for about a year now. I have better cold starts, noticeably quieter...

2WD with 235 85 R16s. I have a 5" Diamond Eye now. It was a bear to get in. I'd say with 2WD, you really need to stop at the 4" (unless you want to spend more than 8 hours fighting 4 pieces of...
