Started to change my front pads and rotor...and discovered the rotors were gouged. Had to put everything back on to go to the store. Luckily they had one more in stock.

Also put a diamond plate patch over the upper center windshield between the visors where the PO drilled holes for switches...

Changed out turn signal switch, which didn't fix my fast blinkers, and finished my install of my AtoZ rear bumper/carrier.

Two weeks ago I primed, painted, and installed my AtoZ WW2WW Rockers



Last Saturday I installed my Skid Row Steering Box Skid and put a fresh coat of Krylon Fusion Satin Black on my headlight bezels.

Today I changed the engine oil, changed the D30 gear oil (the old stuff was really milky, not cool), and topped off the D35 gear oil.

All bulbs are good. I'm going to try to replace both front turn signal sockets that are in the flares.


Will these work in a 97? It is a different style than what is in there now. The old style is no longer available.

POR-15'd my frame rails. Hasn't rained yet.

UPDATE: Started raining about an hour after. Talk about timing

Took the doors off for the first time since getting it a couple weeks ago. Got yelled at by my mother for taking the doors off because it could get dirty. I fell over laughing then went and played around some old R.R. tracks where I volunteer. Also bought some tools while out and about, enjoying the nice day.

Put my top down and took my doors off and drove around the Smoky Mountains National Park all day.

Installed the MML this morning, had two friends helping me. The install went great, only took about an hour and a half, a lot less than what I was expecting. Torqued everything back to spec, and went on to install the OME coil springs and Track Bar relocation bracket. The BL made the biggest difference, the coils barely gained anything over the BB, but I did add a 3/4" spacer to the front to level things out. Sits very level front to back, rides fine. Have a few bumps and squeeks I am not sure about coming from the rear, I am assuming it is the track bar bracket. All the bolts on there are torqued to what they are supposed to be, so I am not sure what is making the noise back there. I think everything may just be settling. After having installed the MML, there is a slight vibration that I had before the MML, which feels like it may be the T-case/transmission mount on the skid plate.
