Does your 4.7L have both the mechanical and electric radiator fans? My I6 does. I'm still messing with that 36mm nut... What about that 10mm bolt pressed against the passenger side frame rail.... does the 4.7L have that as well? Any tricks that you learned during the process?

My water pump was super easy....I did have the front end tore off replacing my radiator so that might of had something to do with it.

On the subject of what I did today I found that my 4 month old, less than 1100 mile Autozone thermostat is stuck in the closed position.

I also took of the frontend to take out, when I replaced my radiator. While I was at it replace the water pump, thermo, and clutch fan. The whole job took about 2 hours with a trip to o'reilys.

They are 255/75 17s. Never had em in the spare well. But they are only 1 size bigger than what came stock so I would assume so

Those 255/75-17s won't come close to fitting in the spare tire well even with a bfh. I think 30.5 full or maybe 31" deflated can fit at the most.

what's the second number? The first number is just the width. The second number is a percentage of the width, which is the sidewall height.

BUT, to try to answer your question, a 255/75/17 is a 32" tire.

because the first number was the tread width.

They could have been 255/60/17 -- which would be a 29" tire.

Doing the math a 255/75/17 is 32.06 but in bfg m/t it is actually closer to 32.5. I know this size tire does not fit. All tires specs are going to very by model and manufacturer. I was referring to the specific make (falken,) model (rocky mountain at,) and size (245/70/17) that is still showing in his signature. I know that some 245/70/17 do fit but have not found confirmation on this specific tire. Thanks for everyones help.

By the way... if your vehicle is still stock height, as your posts and profile/signature suggest, you need to share your voodooo that has allowed you to tuck as much as you are in your pics and not rip something apart.

So I'm still getting a whine/vibes mostly under accel from front drive shaft, noise almost disappears with shaft removed. I have also noticed that the yoke on the transfer case side has a tough spot in it when I turn by hand ( transfer case in neutral).

Is that normal?
Could I have a bearing trying to go bad? Bent output shaft mabe?

I have checked and rechecked pining angle, and the fact I still have noise with the shaft out makes me think its something else. Pretty sure the noise is coming from transfer case side, has good fluid and have had this noise for awhile now, so far nothing has gave out or shown abnormal wear. Just getting vary tired of the load wine all the time and the worst is long trips on the freeway.
Anyone have any ideas?
