That's not a bad idea.

Finally swapped my shocks out today but I haven't taken it for a spin yet.









Otherwise the jack won't fit...



Decided to change my plugs too. I was going to wait until I got some decent wires but I had the plugs and I was already out there dicking around so I said screw it. Turns out that was a mistake because even though I was trying to be careful to not pull the wires apart the first one I took off the connector stayed on the plug. The wires I have on there are lifetime warranty shits so I just got another set of them for the time being.

Plugs look pretty healthy though...

I got my Brazil tails yesterday but I didn't get a chance to take pictures until today. I'm not really crazy about the quality but I supposed beggars can't be choosers...



There's a crazy amount of flashing around the edges of the lights and when they bonded the lenses to the housings they didn't have them properly centered so now when the red part is illuminated it lights up part of the white lens as well...





One didn't come with the clip nuts...

Started cleaning up the tails. The flashing around the edges was obnoxious so that's what I was working on. Kinda hard to see in the pics but whatever...


















I'm going to paint the edges of the tail light but I'm not sure where I should mask them off. Any suggestions?

I got to messing around today and popped the tails in just to see what they look like...





I took them back out though until I have everything to make them work properly.

Brandon, Thanks man! I don't think they have any similar lights for FS trucks..

I don't know if I'm keeping the bed that's on it so I'm not going to mess with it, and if I do decide to keep it I'll have them fixed properly.

Not much of an update but an update none the less. I finally got around to messing with my inner wheels wells. I cleaned them up a bit and then shot them with bedliner...





















Put the wheels back on, took a few pics, went to pull it off the blocks, no fuel pump. lol Not sure if it was something we did(don't see how that's possible) Or if the pump just shit the bed(most likely). Not sure when I'm going to start dicking with that. First order of business is seeing if I have DeJuice at the pump, if so then I'll have to decide if I want to replace everything(fuel lines, sending unit, tank) along with the pump. They're not in great shape and some of the few things I haven't touched on the truck yet.

Fixed it. It was this bitch ass ground wire with the stupid butt connector...

Planned on dealing with it when I do the big three, which should have been done a long time ago.

Milk crates FTMFW...


Amazing how dirty everything has gotten since I last had it apart...


So I cleaned it...




I think I'm going to do the big three and deal with my tailgate hinges while it's apart before I slam everything back together.

I did the big 2 for now. I'll probably make another ground cable for the battery to block this weekend. I was waiting for another terminal extender and more copper lugs to come in the mail, which I got today.




Fixed the tailgate hinges. I wish I would have taken pic of the old ones, or what was left of them anyways.


Finally got new lower radiator mounts.


Here's the old ones.





Got the bed back on and everything back together.

Picked the wrong day to take the truck out a couple Mondays ago and ended up driving through a couple miles of this to get home...


It was DEEP. lol Up to my doors in spots, and the water came up over the hood as I pulled into my driveway. I'm really proud of the little turd for being able to truck through all that shit and get me home. It wasn't without incident though. My fan popped a fuse, it lunched the front bearing in my alternator and the bearing in the pulley on the tensioner, and my clutch slave cylinder got waterlogged. There was about a half inch of water on the floors of the truck and there was water pouring out of the floor vents. lol It basically jacked up more shit that I planned on getting around to replacing anyways. Still amazed that it plowed through all that water though.


New tensioner...




I'll be ordering a new master/slave cylinder soon. That should take all of about 20 minutes to install. I think the most difficult part will be jacking the truck up. I removed the slave that's on the truck then partially disassembled and cleaned it but it still doesn't feel right. Pretty sure it's on it's way out so I may as well replace it. It's getting to the point where no bolt on the truck has been untouched so I'll take the credit for it being able to perform as an Amphicar. I was bummed out the most about my fan because it kept popping fuses. Let it dry out for a day and it's been fine ever since. One of my headlights still has water in it though. lol
