    Yea, that is the one downside...

    I need to also look at getting Christina a more reliable vehicle as well.

    Sometimes I wish I kept my last car and not sold it to buy truck parts.:rofl:I kept it when i bought my truck but after 3-4 months of never starting it I decided it was time to sell it. It also saved me $60 a month by taking it off my insurance to help save for more truck parts!

    @ETXTacoma kept pushing me and I finally listened. I'm waiting on my tread lightly membership packet to arrive with some sweet swag and discounts. I'm ready for some tires!

    I replaced my front driver axle seal, CV dust shield, and the dust seal on the spindle today after work. I also extended the front diff breather with an inline fuel filter acting as a catch can. My diff must have been over filled because it puked all over the place a few weeks ago after some hard driving. I got it all fixed up only to find that the pinion seal is leaking too. Great. At least I had the forethought to order one earlier this week just in case. Should be here Monday. So far this front diff from ECGS has been a huge pain in the ass. Some bigger tires here soon and it'll all be worth it.

    Heck yea man!

    You could prob go ahead and order them as the rebates are General or Falken I am pretty sure, but that packet should be there pretty quickly though! I like the new sticker design they have now over the one I got.

    Very nice man!!! That must really be a good deal then!

    Awesome build. I've been looking for a cab rack to go over my softtopper. Is that bed rack a custom build or what? Is it level with the prinsu cab rack or a little higher?

    Thanks man. Check out this thread for a bit more info...

    The post linked shows the height difference in the All pro bed rack and the prinsu cab rack. The basket I use is also from All pro

    Not too bad at all. Had some very light sleet and snow on Tuesday.

    Roads were pretty icy in spots on Wednesday.

    But everything is pretty much back to normal today.

    Just a tad bit nippie for my liking!​

    I'm over this cold weather! I didn't move to TX to be freezing my ass off. I need some sunshine!!! I worked from home the last 2 days because the roads were icy and I have no choice but to cross a big ass bridge in order to get to work...but I'm back in the office today and the roads seemed fine.

    I got lucky with the weather and replaced my front pinion seal earlier this morning. It was being difficult when I started driving it in so I gave it a good smack and it went in a bit too far... hope I'm still good to go, otherwise I get to replace it again if it leaks from being driven in too far.

    Last night I removed my fender flares and ordered 5 MT/Rs... 35s will ship out Monday! I need this rain to hold off... it's time to :sawzall:
