Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Grmpy - you and I should be neighbors. That is exactly how my projects seem to go. Start small and scope creep sets in right off the bat. The end product is always nice but usually more time and money than originally thought.

Andy - where did you get the seals and who is the maker?

It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Told the guy light blue he brings me an Ochre bed.

JK, the guy does good work. This is the first stage on the bed, though the underside and inside are done. We finished the body dry run, drilled for the tail bezels and lower molding. We'll work on the side moldings next time. Someone stuffed a LH upper tailgate molding in a RH NOS bag. Long story I got three LH, no RH

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

I got my Tow Hitch fitted, after seeing one on a truck in this thread on another Longhorn.
Its a Draw-Tie 41938 and fitted up very well.

Now to do some wiring for brakes and lights.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

By using a syringe there's no tapping. Ink refill syringe does the trick quite well.

I got the under side of the cab stripped. The tip-n-flip is a life saver. So far, NO rust repair!

Subtle brag? Even if it is, I am jealous. Looking good.

Do the rockers, inner and outer. Once you cut into them you will most likely see why. They hold dirt and then the moisture. Always a nightmare in everyone I have owned.

I took out the black vinyl and replaced it with dark saddle. I think it goes better with the color of the truck. Golden Ginger
