I know. No time yet. Waiting for summer. What's the best way to do it so it lasts awhile?

Got the t-case back in yesterday, but it didn't fix my front drive line issue like I was hoping. It is also causing cross member fitment issues in the new orientation. Now I get to cut up a brand new drive shaft to convert it to a CV style to get more useable angle.

Installed some Rancho RS5000's at all four corners. Ended up snapping the top bolt on the right front shock trying to remove it, but the drivers side came out without issue. Truck rides much better now. While I was underneath the truck, I noticed the front and rear pinion seals are starting to seep a little, so I've already got my next project lined up for later this week.

Wished I had the mechanical knowledge to do a SAS because it would be bad ass on my truck but anyone I talk to about helping with it laughs at me because it's not a "big" truck. They call it a little toy.. *pissed off face*

Today I decided to re-route all of my wires from the sirius radio, power and antenna under dash and hid in door moulding. Added a cell phone charger(routed through dash) decided also to get rid of my center console all parts are out and I am looking for alternatives to replace it with something else, let me know of some ideas you may have for replacememnt. I will hard wire radar detector later. So I if anyone wants to buy my console PM me the only thing wrong is the usual arm rest is cracked on the bottom(ford flaw) as you know. Also what can I do with the bolts sticking up through the floor from where the aluminum support was for the back half of the console????

Re-ran one of my CB antenna coax cables, and then troubleshot an issue with the cruise control not staying on..

Drove the hell out of him, too!

Over the weekend, I went on a road trip to visit my family and got 26 MPG! (100% highway, cruising at 60, no AC). I also installed a trailer hitch and hopefully fixed my tonneau from leaking (we will see, it's supposed to rain today).
