oil change and 5-tire rotation. took them 3 tries to get it right. every time I'd get it it'd pull right, then it's pull left. finally after too many times they got the balance right. I dunno what nerd they had doing it, but dang.


anyway, also had to tighten down a loose nut on my engine skid. that damn thing was rattling so much, it was driving me crazy.

Rerouted my winch wires so I could put the cover on. Also cut the platic sway-bar cover to fit the winch plate.

Replaced and adjusted the headlights.

Popped the weather stripping back into place on the driver's side door.

Stood back and figured the wash can wait until the weekend.

Installed my AA SYE and my Tom Woods DS.

Suffice to say...it was a breeze. Thankfully...

But I also broke the head off of the banjo bolt on the driverside front brake.

I am glad it went pretty smoothly. How long overall did it take then?

Measured my front axle to frame clearances after a high speed impact with some really tightly packed snow to find out that my track bar stretched!?

I feel your pain. Just got the control arm bracket welded back on after playing in the snow too rough and finding a ditch. Steering wheel is off center a little, hoping nothing else is bent/stretched.....

Resealed rear half of transfer case and also replaced seal to fix leak. After ordering the wrong output shaft seal, and then replacing the seal twice (both leaked immediately afterwards) finally there are no leaks. Its funny how good it feels to fix a leaking transfer case, especially after you go for a long drive and look underneath and there is no puddle of ATF. A thin coat of Black RTV on the outside of the seal was the trick.

Replaced the front wiper motor. It died last year but I got some life out of it by banging it with a hammer and squirting lube in it. Finally died again and started to blow fuses so a new one went in Tuesday night.
