    Nice! I've got a day of sandblasting lined up for Friday. Might get lucky and put my tires in dirt Sunday if all goes well.

    the truck is coming along pretty damn good so far. I am starting to like it so much I am considering selling my 2nd gen and making this one my daily driver. I have literally done almost everything you guys and I listed as far as replacing shit and maintenance and it is running 10x better now. I wish I would have takan a picture of the throttle body before I cleaned it, it was so gummed up with crap that I am surprised the truck ran at all. I did notice while taking the airbox ,intake tube, and TB apart that some idiot drilled about 15 1/4in holes into the front of the airbox and then cut a 2inx3in hole into the metal intake tube for some reason. They had the hole in the metal intake tube covered with tinfoil and electrical tape which I did not notice when I bought the truck. Does anyone have any idea why someone would do this??

    I was very pleased with those marlin crawler shifter bushings too, it took me half an hour to take the shifter out, clean all the crap off, put in new bushings, then put it back together and wow what a difference!!!

    All that drilling sounds pretty half-ass to me. You could go back to stock, or maybe a snorkel? :D

    Glad to hear the overhaul is going well! Any evidence of damage when you replaced all the fluids (milkshake in the diffs, metal shavings, etc)?
