    Start regular morning exercise now. And get used to getting up at oh-my-god-its-early. If you're already in the routine, I'll make the transition easier.
  2. We're getting some much needed moisture so I'm not gonna complain too much.
  3. Dana 35. 4.10 most likely. Auto or manual?

    It's a blast. You should have it high on your "to do" list. But then clean the truck afterwords and it will lose some of the appeal.

    Mud is fun. Until you have to clean and maintain the vehicle you drive in it. Mud gets into everything. It is murder on seals. It will sneak into your diffs and you need to clean it out. It finds it's way inside the frame and stays there along with all the moisture so it promotes rust. It can even get into your transfer case, transmission, and engine. I like driving someone else's truck in mud.
  6. I would change the process slightly. When bleeding the rear valve and you have the front open, depress the pedal and hold it. Then close both valves before letting up. Repeat as necessary.
  7. Having a bleeder open when you release the pedal sucks air in through the bleeder.

    Whats in your cab

    Right now, my cab is filled with parts I will be using once I get time and budget to work on the conversion to tons. Once it's up and running, it'll be mostly a trail rig. The bed will be filled with all the tools and spares I will need, along with things like a fire extinguisher on the roll bar/cage. Mostly, the cab will be empty except for me and the radios I have hooked up.
  9. Random thought. I may or may not have been involved in doing this once myself Did you get the front calipers installed on the correct sides? The bleed screw should be on the top. If you swap them, they will fit but the bleed screw will be on the bottom and the air won't bleed out.
  10. ¿Por qué no los dos? Really you can't go wrong with either. I'd lean to the burrito if I had to. Cummins, Power Stroke, or Duramax?
  11. I love Evapo-Rust on small parts. It's convenient and cheap. Soak it overnight and it comes out clean. Minor prep (rinsing and final degreasing) and it's ready for a good coat of paint. For big parts, I use some kind of rust converting primer. Paint it on and wait for it to cure (and convert the rust). Then paint over it.
