You should post some pictures! Sounds awesome! All I did today was repair my exhaust after dropping in the engine and putting in a new clutch yesterday. Also put in a new coolant tank and putting in a new radiator.

Haha. Nice! Why did you take the bed off? Just wondering.

Im working on undercoating my frame and axles. With the lift, my rusty frame looks like shit in my wheel wells. I got caked mud and salt underneath the bed, so i just decided to take it off for a few days. Got tuesday off and it's supposed to be 70 here, so i thought it would be a good time to do it. I just scrape off the dirt and rust with a grill brush.

Cut off the old annoying glasspack I had dumped under the bed, and replaced it with a Flowmaster 40 Series shot out infront of the rear passenger side tire with a 3 inch tip. Sounds so much better than the glasspack honestly.

Changed oil, cleaned MAF sensor, washed her, cleaned the inside of the wheels, shined up my rear bilsteins, greased the rear drivers cab mount to cut down on the squeaking

Replaced the lower ball joints, changed out the front brake pads, and a couple other things you all have to wait a few days to see.

Changed oil and filter, rotated tires. Changed spark plugs and wires. Ran like crap afterward! Couldn't figure it out. I was really low on fuel so I decided that being parked on a hill it was just out of gas. After getting my neighbor to take me to the gas station to fill up the jerry can it still wouldn't start.

I then consulted FRF to check the sp wire routing and realized immediately I did it wrong! Problem solved. Next time I'll go straight to FRF first, AND also make sure I have fuel in the tank before starting a project. That way I rule that out as the problem.

I spent 8 hours replacing my cracked exhaust manifolds with long tube headers. And my exhaust is about three feet shorter than it was. Instead of being dumped under the bed, it's dumped right in front of the gas tank, which is about a foot before the end of the cab. It's loud, obnoxious, backfires a bit, and I'm getting a lot more power out of it. I love it.

Removed my sway bar end links, scrubbed the brake dust from the inside of the front wheels, checked the fluids, and inspected the brakes.

To be honest, I don't really know. The reason I pulled them is because the bushings fell out a couple of months ago, and the links were just rattling around. I've pretty much been driving with it disconnected because of that, and since I didn't catch it until a few weeks ago, I didn't really notice a difference.
