    I use that exact same model pump (I love amazon!) to refill my gear oil.

    Here's a quick tip on that pump...that long soft plastic tubing that comes with it... well you can cut and attach a portion of it to size to extend the short hard tube that slides into the bottle. I had to do this cause the hard tube couldn't reach the bottom to suck out all the fluid from the bottle. Making this simple modification I was able to suck out ALL the fluid out of my mobil 1 gear oil bottles.

    I love brown santa too but I really wish he wasn't so damn harsh on all the packages he drops off on my porch. He can really be an asshat handling my packages sometimes when nobody's looking. :mad:

    I got the part # off your build thread for the pump!!! You have an awesome build and I enjoy following it! :cool:

    And I'll def take your advice and extend the pump tubing into the bottle. I happen to know my typical UPS driver. Our kids play soccer together. So I hope he doesn't throw my stuff too much....:D :eek:
    (Im not too happy with the "other" company though)

    Thanks!

    I changed my rear diff oil yesterday. Good thing I got replacement crush washers. My old ones were flat! Changed out my plugs as well. Old ones looked ok. It's probably just a mental thing, but the truck feels so much tighter and smoother!:D

    Woody,

    How do you like your suspension set up (OME 883, Dakar, and Nitrochargers)? I have the same truck with a 3" adjustable Fabtech suspension in front with stock leafs and a 3" block in the back. this setup is worn out and i am debating on upgrading. I run Toyo Open Country 285/75/16 and currently i get a slight rub on the passengers side when I back up and sometimes when i make a right hand turn into some place.

    Since you have the same truck and same size tires, i just wanted to see if you were happy with your setup. also what are your messurements from the center hub to the fender flares?

    I like the set up so far. It does exactly what I need it too. Its not my DD, so I am trying to have it suite my uses. I got the 883's because I knew I would be throwing on a plate bumper.
    I jumped on the Elite GB here on the site, so the bumper should add some weight to the front end.

    If I never planned on getting a plate bumper,I probably would of went with the 882.

    I think the Nitrochargers are good. They do fie for what I throw at them.

    I love the Dakars! Well worth the money in my opinion.

    I have the same rubbing issues as you have. I still have my sway bar on though (I don't know if you removed yours)
    Soon here I will be removing my sway bar and at the same time, i will be making some modification to my inner wheel wells with a 5lb sledge.

    I will measure the height when I get home. :)

    Woody,
    Thank you for recommendation and measurements. I just went out and measured mine.

    FP-23 1/2"
    FD-23 3/4"

    RP-23 1/2"
    RD-23 1/2"

    I have already done the 5lbs inner fender mod, so I think if I go with your suspension set up, I will gain almost 1/2" - 3/4" and have a smother ride. I really appreciate you taking the time.

    Anytime! I asked tons of members here questions before I made my decision. Thats whats good about this place.

    I am seriously thinking about a 1" body lift as well. Just for a little extra clearance.

    Good luck

    I agree with you on the 1" body lift. I'll do it sometime in the future. Looking at BoxRocket's after he did his pretty much confirmed my thought's on it.
