Put my air silencer back in, noticed a big decrease in power and shift to lower RPM in the power band; it did however remove the lag or lack of power at very low RPM.

I will be removing it again in the morning. I like my acceleration when I need it; thx.

Finally worked on mine for the first time in 3 weeks. Made a vent system for my tranny so I can run my Hurst shifter, got my fenders on and adjusted, got my hood slotted and adjusted, and put my front bumper on.

I did the air box mod. Turns out the tube wasn't even in all the way and pulling it out made the truck noticeably quieter.

Got my CB installed today.

Don't have it hooked up yet cause I didn't finish putting my new battery terminal on.
I'm ordering my antennas tonight.

I washed it this morning after I left work, then proceeded to drive the hell out of it around town with a couple of friends. We wound up at the river.

Today another day off, I completely removed the sway bar and links, cleaned and then painted the truck bed, and inside of canopy and replaced the blankets for the dog. I looked at the sway bar bushings and I was right, they were worn pretty bad. Painted the sway bar with rustolium for storage plus the brackets.

Good job on the installation! For your microphone, you can do what I chose to do and buy one of those plastic mic holders with adhesive on the rear. I think that that's a much better option than buying a metal one and screwing it on.

Thanks. That's what I might do. Do you know if they have them at radio shack?
Does the adhesive hold up, or is it weak and falls alot?

I would think that they would have them, but I bought mine at a truck stop. Good question about the adhesive. It only lasted about three days inside my hot cab, so I put a dab of Gorilla Glue on the backside, and it's held great. That's been a few (maybe 3) months ago.

I have some gorilla glue laying around here. Lol. I'll give it a try, thanks again.
