    Got a text from body shop. Truck will be done and ready for pick up tomorrow at 5:30pm Now I hope it doesn't rain until I get it home and in the driveway. They detail it before giving back so I will have a nice clean truck to bring. Have projects to Bed Lights, under hood lights, Bed mat and couple other I can remember, will have to look in cabinet and see what on shelf.

    About a week ago I decided I wanted to move my hi lift out of the bed and onto my camper shell roof rack. Partially because I wanted easier access (even though I’ve only used it a couple times) and partially because I thought it’d look cool, if I’m being honest.

    So I bought some pelfreybilt universal hi lift mounts via BAMF.

    I ended up ditching the included hardware and using my own. 2.5” long 1/4” carriage bolts will hold it to the prinsu. The main bolt that holds the hi lift down, is a 3/8”-16.

    I bought a 3” all thread bolt, and installed it with red thread locker. Then I cut the head off, and cleaned up the threads when a nut. Scuffed them up, taped off the threads and acetone wiped them, primed and paint.

    To actually hold the hi lift down I bought a pack of these.

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005LI7HWU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_lmwGCb473RBK8

    I don’t want to have to rely on tools to get them off. To fight corrosion, I’ll put a bag over the main part, and regularly maintain it so it works when I need it.

    For security I’ll get some braided steel wire and run it through the hi lift and around the prinsu, and just unlock it before I hit the trail, like I do with all my other locked stuff.

    Once the knobs get here Saturday, I’ll do the actual install. That’ll also give the paint plenty of time to dry.

    Wasn’t terrible. Just time consuming and tedious. The hardest part was the camper shell by far.

    Picked up the rest of the parts for my headliner install (one is still on backorder).
    Bought power steering lines (pressure and return), Off-Road gas tank straps (so I can install a gas tank skid), and a couple small brackets and seals.

    Now I need to bribe Mother Nature.

    Did you swap the rear lines? That’s probably the biggest PITA I have done on this truck. I want someone close to me to do that swap and I want to just sit in a chair with a drink and watch and listen!
    Never again in my life. Not to mention the factory hardlines were kinda gauled, so you have to file or work around that too


    Oh and today I changed oil and spark plugs. 120K
