Dropped the gas tank to drain the 2 year old gas that was left. Luckily there was very little in there. Whole job wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, only took about 45 mins. Now I need a battery and some vacuum lines and hopefully the Magnum will come to life.

Gave the interior a little winter clean so the dealer mechanic won't get dirty pulling it into his bay, lol... 7a appt to get the OPDA tuned and then off to the muffler shop.

Can you afford the car? Have I provided you all the information you need on the car? Do you like the car? Then buy the car.

Put in a new TPS and battery. Nothing to big but it runs 100% better. I said goodbye to that low idle issue.

Chased a clunking sound most of the day. It sounded like u joints in the front drive line so I pulled it. Test drove nope noise still there. Put the front back on and pulled the rear and test drove. Nope still there. Crap thought it might be the front diff coming apart. Put it on stands with just the front shaft in and no noise. Figured it must only do when under a load so I figured I might as well pull the diff cover off and inspect it. Everything looked fine. What the heck drove it again this time I could definitely tell it was coming from the rear. Now I'm thinking I snapped an axle on my pos D35. Nope what do I find a loose freakin wheel. I can't believe I spent all day chasing my tail for a loose wheel. At least it didn't fall off. One stud was broken and the others were all jacked up. Replaced all 5 put the rear drive shaft back in and test drove. Guess what no more noise.

Oil change and I installed a fram air filter in my stock air box and wow does it make a difference on the road, anyone know if it'll make a difference with sucking in more off-road debris?

I've always ran one so I couldn't tell you if it makes a difference
Was you old one clogged up?

Take your time. And don't get frustrated with how annoying some areas are to reach

That's a ***** of an instal. Make positive you do one side at a time. Undo both mounts at the same time and you're most likely screwed.
