Since most of us are always doing work our trucks I figured I'd post up a thread so everybody can post up what they are doing.

Here's my list and dates, if you want to come help out or watch in BK let me know! A lot of this is pending things getting delivered in a timely manner - and YES I plan it all by day so I can get it done on my days off.

Thursday 06/16/11
1. Spare tire switched out so I can sell the set of 5 off
2. Thermostat - waiting on this from Lucky8
3. Put console back together and finally mount CB
4. Mount solenoid under hood so it's ready to get wired up.
5. If thermostat hasnt arrived I may do more work on light or start on changing drive shaft UJ's

Saturday 06/18/11
1. Change UJ's - may need a torch or vise if anybody near me has one I can borrow.
2. Rotoflex conversion
3. Change oil

Thursday 06/23/11
1. Install Terrafirma gas tank skid plate - waiting on this from Lucky8
2. Replace panhard rod bushings - waiting on these from Lucky8
3. Wire winch - need to order different cable.
4. Add some transmission fluid - need to find or order

Saturday 06/25/11
1. Put Dynabeads in tires - still need to order
2. Work on Hellas
3. FINALLY install Riv-Nuts in sliders and maybe KBS and patch the hole in my door sills.

Stuff I still need to do at some point
Relocated Damper so I can install QT front diff guard
Get a southdown steering guard and install that

I think that's it for now.

Autozone and advanced auto have a loaner tool that makes it much easier.

If you can find a welding shop near you, pick up some welding cable. Much more flexible, and possibly cheaper than ordering online. That is, if you meant electrical cable. If you meant the actual winch line, cheapest price on synthetic seems to be at Ed's toystore

Nice now we wont have to listen to your handle rattle. I need to pick up that tool from autozone. I bet mine doesnt have it.. I got a propane torch so I'm going to give that shot first. I really need to get that done so I can make the swap..

Changed the stat. Still getting hot with AC on. Going to have to get a flush somewhere. Hope it's not head gaskets.

I need to save money for a move across the country.

Remember when I mentioned Florida?

check the oil to see if it is contaminated that will tell you, my guess is if you are not misfiring, losing coolant and your oil is not conatminated with coolant than HG's are not your problem.

is Florida looking more likely?

Yea I'll be doing an oil change soon. I need to have a flush done for sure.

Florida is looking likely. Hannah's company is getting a job offer together for me so we will see what that looks like.

Hg's don't always contaminate the oil. Mine leaked externally. Are you even losing ccoolant if your coolant level isn't going down, you most likely don't have a leak. Check with a radiator shop and see if you can have the rad dipped and rodded.

Where in Florida might you be heading?

So my rear pinion appears to be a little leaky with the extra inch of lift It's probably the driveline angle and a bad seal. So needless to say driveshaft conversion and a new seal is on top priority. Breakin some of this stuff down

The tool from Autozone is the way to go for sure. I got it done quickly once I got my hands on that. Greased it up and it's ready to go now. I got the old shaft off but then had to go out with the GF. Need to pick up some bolts but hopefully will have this done this week. Was hoping to get the gas tank skid on but.. always running out of time.

not much luck so far this week. Terrafirma gas tank skid needs to be modified to fit. Get the columbia overland one if you ever buy one. Centralizing peg is STUCK heated it up 5 times pb blastered it and beat the piss out of and nothing. Going to get a slide hammer tomorrow.

Here's a pic of the only thing I've completed this week.

You can try getting a puller or slide hammer from AZ and see if that works. Heat it up with a torch, and have a go. You can also use a big ass socket, like a hub socket, some washers, and a bolt to pull it. put the socket over the flange, and thread the bot into the peg, as you crank it, it will force it against the socket and pull it out.

If all else fails, pull the whole diff, and bring it to a shop to pull it.

If you wanna take the drive, we could probably do the tires in my garage, just need a spoon to break the bead.

Headed to autozone for slide hammer tonight. Will try socket if that doesn't work. Got the bolt last night. Have you done the slide hammer method? I was torching it and going to town on it last night and nothing.

I got the tool to put them in thru valve stem which will prob take a while but thanks for offer.

How's your ankle doing?

I've never had to pull the peg before, I just swapped complete diffs when i did mine. Ankle is much better. Out of the boot, and back to work. Have another week or two of PT. Just found out yesterday I can't do Rausch next month. I took of work, then found out that my buddy is having his bachelor party that weekend, and I'm in the wedding party. B/c of that, I'm hoping to make the pines trip, even if its just for a couple hours on Saturday.
