    I FINALLY got off my lazy ass and installed the front stainless brake hoses. Getting those factory hose clips lose was a PITA, at least until I figured out that it was far easier to tap them lose from the top of the engine bay with a long-ass screwdriver. Bolting them up and bleeding using my power bleeder (the one that works off an air compressor) was relatively much easier. The old fluid that came out resembled black tea. :eek::p Pads were also replaced. The rotors are still in fair shape but I'll plan on replacing them by next spring.

    I've had a pop and lock for 10 years now without a problem. I rarely lock it though.

    I've got some exhaust leaks at two flanges, figure might as well replace them all. Can anyone confirm part numbers?

    90917-A6005 for the manifold to crossover x2
    90917-06086 for crossover to cat x2
    90917-06057 for cat one to cat two and cat two to muffler x2

    I've gone with felpro in the past and had issues, so figure I'd go OEM this go around.

    Nic but why didn't you just use the OEM holes? They are right there in your photos. Could have saved you a bunch of effort. Every cab has the mounting points for them.

    I can't speak to the V6 exhaust gasket PN's, but I will say that OEM for exhaust gaskets is the only way to go.

    I chased exhaust leaks for the longest time and went through so many Felpro/aftermarket gaskets. The quality control on them is terrible. They would vary in thickness and sometimes diameter for the same part number.
    OEM is the way. The design is so much better than anything available aftermarket for exhaust gaskets.

    Got my bed all bolted back on ,shell, carpet kit and swingout back on.
    I think I fucked my tailgate. It's not closing right .the top sides are separated out and the gate feels like it's trying close while it's on the bed.kind of like it's positioned just below the top of the bed.I may pull the shell and lossen the bed bolts and see if it helps. .

    Here's were the Shocks are sitting. I haven't found a place to flex it but I did hit all the big speed humps and jumped it a little. Didn't feel like it's bottoming out. The shocks are definitely stiffer than the icons I had before. They kind of look a little short.

    Do you have bed stiffeners? It could be separating because of your DCU

    That's likely what it is. The bedsides like to flop around and move when you add weight onto the bedsides.
