    Just ordered CVJ Reman axles because mine are puking grease. Doing axle seals and ECGS bushing while its all apart. My alternator is also on its way out so I’m going to replace that as well and maybe idler pulleys too.

    Finally got the fire extinguisher mounted up. Not 100% sure I like the location, but I think it covers most of the bases. Inboard so it won't get hit by trees, and on the driver's side rear for quicker access

    Regreased my Ome Dakar leaf spring shackle bolts and sleaves that were squeakier than a cheap motel bed in the throws of passion. Put the frame on Jack stands and drooped the leafs by lowering the floor jack. First and last time, it was a super pain in the butt to do it without a shop 2 post lift. The squeak is gone. Next week Durobump bump stops front and back. 20190519_190833.jpg 20190519_190859.jpg

    The same shit everyone else has.
    Washed, claybar’d and waxed it today.

    upload_2019-5-19_22-30-45.jpg

    Finally pulled the clear film off the rear flares. Took a handful of beers to work up the balls to pull it off. I’ve been wanting to for the longest time, but was worried about what was underneath it.

    Turns out the paint under it was fine after a little bit of polishing and some wax.

    New rear shocks go on tomorrow.

    It’s pretty simple, get throttle body cleaner and MAF cleaner. Take off the stock air box so you can see the butterfly on the TB, then get a toothbrush and some rags and spray the cleaner and scrub away. Open the butterfly and scrub everything until clean. Then spray the MAF without touching it and let dry. Reassemble everything and start it back up. It more than likely wont start on the first time, it’ll sputter and die. Just try it again and it’ll crank right up.


    Edit: here’s a write up.
