My 01 X Nightmare repair and Future Mods

Well I have a 01 X I've had since 1-08 And was My wifes to replace here suburaban but she wanted a 7.3 like the one I had in my truck. Well now my wife has here mustang and drives my 6.4 ford in the winter so this has kind of bacame mine. Well When I got it it had 156,000 miles now 214,000. I realy haven't done alot to it. The few things did was resealed the winshield it leaked, New front leaf springs, front wheel bearings, The front trans pump bushing (snow plowing), the front wheel joints, And many front brake pads. Furure plans It needs GP, new exahast, maybe injectors, air intake, front springs maybe (x), rear air bags, and any thing i might come up with. I don't have to may pic of it. But a few I do have and a few working.







Brings me to where I'm at now I am rebilding the brake system. Front and rear Calpers With brackets, front and rear rotors, front and rear pads. And add in driver's side upper and lower ball joints, and drivers side wheel joint. Here some pic's
Had to go buy damaged bolt kit just to get the dam locking lug nuts off


do we see a problem here??????





Then tore the kuckle down to change ball joints



All the new parts OUCH!!!!!



I got a set of stock rims for it with the wrong center caps but we'll see if they work

Had to do all that when I bought mine before I could even drive it, so yea I know how much of a PITA it is to do...as it is right now my hub bearings on the DR side of mine are shot and have the hub nut heat welded to the axle shaft so my axle turns ALL the time in 2wd
