Changed the front rotors and pads today (90k miles). First time doing it on any vehicle and it was pretty easy, once I got the rusted rotors to come off with a small sledge. Put everything back together, took it for a ride around the block only to find the pedal kept going to the floor. Took the wheels back off, opened the bleeder, had my girlfriend step on the pedal, and had a big spurt of air followed by fluid to come out. Put it all back together and everything was great.

1 RC-TB732-WK Trac Bar - Adjustable Rear (WK) It isn't on Rusty's website, so you will have to call. The female receptionist will know exactly what you are talking about.

The 1.5" spacer in the back end, what did you use? Cut down poly spacer?

And Omelet's right - gotta see some pics. Sounds cool.

Good to see she has finally learned something! A year ago if you wanted anything you had to ask for Rusty himself, otherwise it was constantly "I don't know let me go ask" or "No we don't make that even though it is sitting right next to me"!

Front Bilstiens are now on, it rides so much better now. Next is waiting for the Husky mudflaps to come in the mail, and start changing my audio system out.

Also need to find info about a trailer brake controller too.

My 08 has had the rear tail light only go out 1 time and that was about a year ago. How frequently have they burnt out after being replaced? The bulbs should last a few years.

Put in all new plugs yesterday and cleaned out the throttle body. A few of the plugs were at least rounded down to the ceramic, if not completely worn down to it. This is probably the first time they've been changed, hopefully we see an improvement in gas mileage!

Also got a lead on an amp for the Alpine stereo. Need to order aline converter today for delivery on Tuesday and get a stereo hooked up.

Installed an external speaker for my CB.

Here is a short, not the best, hope you like it, give me yo opinions write up.

There is a small bar that runs cross ways under the seat. I zip tied the mounting bracket to that with 2 zip ties. If you look directly above the speaker itself, you can sort of make out the bar, bracket and 2 ties.

The speaker will not come loose from the bracket and the speaker is not in the way of my feet. Also, I can pivot the speaker up so if I ever move my seat forwards or backwards, it can pivot outta the way.



After that I put the speaker on the bracket and ran the wires out to the left of the seat, under all the plastic, and under all the plastic trim up towards the CB in the cubby hole.



Here is another shot of it under the seat.




The speaker is plenty loud under the seat. It's prob 10X louder than using the speaker in the CB. So this turned out great. And the other thing is, since I zip tied it under the seat and ran the wires under all the plastic trim, I can remove it and it'll be like it was never there.

All I did on mine was take off the big plastic 4.7L box in the middle of the engine while I was taking out the plugs which left the throttle body exposed. There were three bolts holding it on (8mm) that I took off which gave it enough play to basically flip the body over without disconnecting anything. Sprayed some carb and choke cleaner in there and wiped it out really good. Took the wet towel and tried to clean in behind it where it was bolted to but that wasn't really dirty at all. Let all of it dry, flipped it back over, and reinstalled the bolts. Pretty easy, but takes a little while to remove the intake stuff.
