Re: What did you do with your truck today, Part 3

When I have changed the bed floor, I have noticed that the left rear springs fixation was not correctly installed. See photo.



I have cleaned the system and reinstalled it. But now, I have checked the repair manual and I think that it is necessary to replace the parts with new ones...
I can find replacement part for the 3100, but not for the 3600. Are they the same ?
Is it easy to replace them?

Another challenge for me !

I repaired that and got both ready for epoxy primer.

Looking at the lower grille filler, mine is cut out. Stock it simply went straight across at the ruler right? Then had that little fold down, 3/8" or so across the back right?

I have an extra one of those grill filler pieces. It's a little bent but free if you want it. Let me know if you're interested and I will send you a few pics.

Yeah, send me a few photos. But I am thinking I will just repair this one, it's in good shape other wise so I may just be trading work from one to another if you get my drift.

Yeah, I am thinking I will fix mine, or even leave it, what the heck, it's cut nice.

That'd be a good place to put the stealth turbo...

Roll-out party!

It moves under its own power, out of the garage for the first time in a year!

Forgive me Moderators, but I'm so excited that I'm placing a duplicate thread in the forums!
