Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Not really today...buuuuuut, heres the list.
smoked tails
smoked corners
55W HID lows
painted bowtie
powdercoated rally wheels
new tires
new rear window
full fluid change (royal purple)
bought the truck a less fortunate buddy (85 bronco 2) its purpose, to beat the crap out of off road, saving the chevy for an easier life.
please note the f**d isn't running and the Chevy is running like a top, all seems to make sense dont it?

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Pulled tank, replaced sending unit, fuel pump and fuel filter. Took about 5 hours to complete. Luckily it had only an inch or 2 of gas in the tank. Primed the filter and she fired right up.

I have about $270 in it doing it myself.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Should have putted on some rim upgrades to my truck and stainless steel ones with awesome designs may work. However the engine is a little bit squeaky while customizing the mods would be an indefinite proportion.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Four hours worth of washing, buffing, waxing, vacuuming, rain-x-ing, armor-alling...I'm beat, but the old girl looks pretty good.

I wish I paid that little! I just paid $3.96 a gallon. Nothing like 50 bucks to get half a tank!

Thanks to NAPA got some tune up items on the 4.3: plugs, wires, cap, rotor and TPS.
So much smoother now...

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

yesterday I changed my rear brake hose and got the brakes working again finally after months of fighting them.

Today I removed all the tools from the front seat and floor I used working on it all these months, cleaned the garbage out of the bed, washed it good, cleaned overspray off my bumper, bull bar and windows, and vacuumed the inside.

Also put the heater hose and overflow hose back on as well as the fan shroud.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Cut off spring hangers in rear for 63" spring swap(I'm putting a 99 burban body on a 89 frame). Cut front hangers for 56" swap in front, removed the oil filter mount/oil cooler, to fit long tube headers and started building the exhaust

Good looking rig! So you can cut just a half of a coil. Thought you could only cut a whole coil at a time. Good info. And nice truck.
