Pulled top end of engine apart tonight to replace my intake gaskets only to find that the previous own only had one of three bolts holding the thermostat housing on. The other two were busted off in the intake. Somehow they got one bolt and a whole lot of copper gasket material holding it all together. Will be fixing correctly before throwing it all back together in the a.m.

Ordered a new crossmember. Hopefully they will actually send me the correct part. The diagrams on the website had it in the same diagram the cab parts were (such as the floor pan)... I put a detailed description in my purchase comment on their site when I was ordering, hopefully they don't fuck this up lol.


$70 down the drain because of the previous owner welding my current crossmember in


I love that guy; he's my favorite.

A lot more than if I was in the lower 48.....They came from autopartsway.ca and the total was right around $500 to the door. $290 for the rotors/$140 for the pads/$15 shipping insurance/$50 tax and free shipping...plus they arrived in 3 days.

So it was probably close to twice as much as someone in the US would pay

Got the new truck titled today and switched the plates over from the old truck. Also hooked up the sub and amp to the stock stereo. And the front turn signal mod.
