Found out she don't like being manually up shifted when heavy on the gas. The 2-OD shift wants to make it high rev for some reason.. I really gotta get a new TV cable. That and I'm starting to feel a light tug to the left on braking, looks like its time to change brakes, Yay! Now I can hopefully rid it of that annoying AF break squeal under medium-moderate breaking.

Did you have any issues installing the transfer case skid? I didn't have the factory welded nuts inside the frame to just screw it to, neither on the cross member. I had to fish the bolt through and put the nut on from the outside.

There are no factory welded nuts, they are nutserts that are hammered in from the factory. The dealer might have them.

They did have them, but they're pretty thin, and mine got completely bashed in by a low-speed excursion over a concrete median in a 4-lane road, while turning around to snatch my dad's pickup truck from where it had become dead in a left turn lane. Also the mounting points kind of suck.

I have to get a new one too. Busted my header panel when I hit that hog a few weeks ago. Found it for around $60 on eBay. They also have complete assemblies for like $120 or something too
