This would be the best time to move, before the kids get older. I imagine Idaho to be a beautiful state, with lots of outdoor activities .

You wouldn't believe the dust we get...I have the best 3M filter for our HVAC system, and I replace it every two weeks.

Yeah, Idaho is a gorgeous state.

Yeah, absolutely! While the Service Manual shows where it goes, it doesn't do a good job of showing the routing of the cord.

One of the local owner/ops stopped in at work to pay the bill for his truck service driving a brand new fully loaded F350, and when we were looking it over he was saying how the salesman told him to always keep the tailgate locked (no bed cover, either). Our puzzled look made him explain how the tailgates are getting stolen when they have that step feature in them. Locking it closed keeps the gate on the truck.

Yeah, I gotta get the lock rekeyed to my key.

Got the frame back from the alignment shop this afternoon. I didn't take a tape measure to it, because I had to take Renee to softball practice, but I did manage to get the rubber axle snubbers and the motor mounts off.

Going to the sandblaster tomorrow. Interesting tidbit I never saw before...my frame has a date code stamped on the underside of the next to last crossmember.....111775B, so I can only assume that it was built November 17, 1975 on the B shift?

I'll post pics, as soon as I get it back.

Woke up early this morning and felt like a kid going to Disneyworld. Dropped my frame off at the sandblaster; it'll be ready this afternoon....$120

I was so excited last night that I couldn't get to sleep, so I grabbed some Brasso and a rag and started cleaning the Levi's buttons on my seats.

I forgot how much fun putting a vehicle back together was!

Alright guys, here she is, fresh from the sandblaster! Had enough time to get a coat of self-etching primer on it, but now it's time to take the family to dinner and celebrate. Huge milestone reached!

NICE WISH!!!!!

I'm going to buy a new tub from Willys Overland, since the guy re-engineers them to fit on the tubs, but that's going to be a few months down the road.

For now, I have to concentrate on finding a place to rebuild the Dana 30.

Send it to me Fred, I'll rebuild it for you! More fact than fiction, but it would only be my second diff. No charge for labor, just buy the parts.
You know I would have excellent supervision!!
