Daily mods and repair thread

I wanted to make a thread so everyone can post their mods or repairs they did to their truck on a certain day. For example.

Today I put my CCV mod on, but i noticed my o-rings were shot so I ordered a set of dieselorings.com so later on this week when they come in I am gunna have to tear it back apart to fix the o-rings.

Also last sunday I put on my amp steps. I LOVE THEM!!

let's see.

I bought my truck a little over a month ago.

Since then, I:

Rhino Lined the bed and the bottom of the tailgate
Put on new pads and rotors all the way around
Installed a 4" ProComp lift
Installed my PHP Chip
Installed fog lights
Installed dual steering stabilizers
Painted my front grille black
Had all 4 ball joints done
Got it aligned

To be done:
Driver's side wheel bearing
possible Tranny Rebuild


Yeah, I'm out of money.

putting a vacuum actuated shut off valve in the heater hoses to shut off the coolant while on max a/c. no coolant circulating through the heater core will make the a/c blow colder. i used the 4 port shutoff from a 96 ranger. dieselsite makes one but it is a 2 port and lots of money. http://www.dieselsite.com/index.asp?...PROD&ProdID=21
