Did some more grease scraping on the trans and t/case this morning, & changed the fluid in both. Holy cow the trans fluid sure flies out of there when you pull the plug! Almost got a face full!

Haha, yeah I know. I'm, a very slooow mechanic i've been mostly working on it on Sundays while listening to football on the radio, but I think I'll try to expedite this thing.. Just trying to balance time, money, and trying not to get all OCD over it But yes you're right I think I do need to hurry it up!

Replaced both front shocks, nothing fancy. Check out the ones that were on there, bushings shot, bouncing on the bolts.
