Keep an eye on the track bar. Im replacing mine asap. Its a solid pice but the metal on metal contact for the hiem joints is proving to be what others said. Not good in the long run. Plus now that my level kit has settled its less than 1/8in longer than my oem track bar lol... p.s. the early99 track bar I have is going to be for sale soon, nothing wrong just my preference changed after only approx. 15k miles etc. Heim joints have their place But, I see the benefit of having the bushing in this case for the long run etc.

Well, the weather people on the local channels are saying rain starting this next week.

Yesterday, I put the cover on my 5th wheel.
Today, I cleaned my windshield, the two front door window and the two outside mirrors. I applied Rain-X to all of those.
Changed the wiper blades. I put on Michelin 24" blades - Better visibility.

Installed a sam wyse stage 1 4r100, the original one went 350,000 miles and was still in perfect working condition! Just wanted to change it on my time to avoid being stranded.

Also installed a turbo back 4Ē exhaust

Man, I call that half-a-day's-work. Rain-X is such a great product. It's worth all of the effort required to apply it.

I didn't actually do anything to my truck over the weekend but I noticed what I am going to have to do to it and right soon...new batteries. Went to crank him up for the weekly trip to the dump and was rewarded with the dreaded "slower-than-it-should-be" crank over. It cranked up but not like or as fast as it has and should. Has been the same every Saturday for the past month but I attributed it to lack of driving. I've had the truck 3 years next month and found a receipt where the original owner replaced both batteries a year before that so I really can't complain on 4 years for O'Really specials. Figure I will replace them both when I replace the UCVH and banjo bolts sometime around Christmas/New Years. Have been wanting to complete that little project for some time now but just haven't had the gumption to do it. Thought about replacing the glow plugs while the valve covers are off but IDK; don't want to snowball the project into the "no more fun zone".

No way id replace those uvch and not replace glow plugs. They are not really that expensive for motorcraft ones and id much prefer not doing that job a second time.

Second. As long as you are in there it's easy to do and cheap. Only get motocraft glow plugs.

Fixed rear passenger door lock latch thing (suicide door). I've done the cable end fixes and it just keeps breaking. $150 for the entire assembly but I only replaced the cables, upper, and lower latches. No way was I drilling out the rivets and riveting the new handle mechanism. If this works out next time the driver's side chits the bed I'll do that side too.

Ford messed up and told me $119 was their price and wanted to sell it to me for $191 so I pulled Amazon up and showed it for $144 and they honored that price. Dayum stealership.
