Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Painted the tailgate, fitting the bed (in primer) tomorrow so I can drill the wood bed. Then remove and paint and reassemble.

In stalled the New LMC tailgate! Painful-for the first time, but with wisdom from the wise on this forum, everything is possible!

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

I just went out yesterday in the carport and checked the dryer sheets and made sure no vagrant rodents were setting up shop..

Post Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Remember to change those dryer sheets every month or you'll get an unpleasant surprise....

I just came back from running errands in my stalling out C/10 W/ 250 I6 & TH350 , two footing it through dense L.A. traffic isn't my idea of fun .

I stopped to fill the tank and did a fuel economy check ~G , not bad for an old clapped out pickup truck .

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

I removed all the trim (moulding) from the fender I bought from Jeremiah King. (It came off amazingly easy). Then I ran it over to the body shop to fix the UPS damage.

Talking Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Redid the door panels in my truck a few days ago.





Also installed road kill inside the doors while I had them a part!

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

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!

I got my Aux Battery system working on my longhorn. A big thanks to Roger Koop for the harness, fits and works great. Now I have 12V power at the back of the truck via the camper harness.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Played with glove box stuff while I wait for the new alt.

Nice day. So I was also under the hood cleaning up a little.

In the mail came some faux leather sheeting.

I'm trying to figure out if I want to match the cluster by getting a *real* chrome glove box and covering the center with an insert of this stuff, or just stop all the madness and paint it the color of the dash.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Picked up a cherry H052 4.10 ratio 3rd member with it's axle shafts.

Big step forward in getting my burb more highway friendly, by swapping out my 4.57 3rd member for the 4.10's.
