Still working on the body damage, these tan bumpers are stupid expensive! Looks like I'll be doing another steel bumper like I did on the '06 but I just straightened it out a little so it doesn't bug me too much. I think I'm going to a PDR shop tomorrow to get a quote on fixing the bed and hoping that isn't too expensive.
Just got back from 4Wheel Parts getting new shoes for the Beast. Toyo 35 X 13.5 20's on 20 X 12 wheels. Previous Toyo AT's were only 12.5 wide and really a bit narrow for the wheels (rims for you sprouts out there! LOL) AT's were working fine but when you get into the muddy stuff they just ball up and act like slicks! Did not want all the noise from MT's so I compromised with the R/T's.
Well, just more boring old routine maintenance for me. Got the fuel filter set in from Amazon.ca and discovered shipping damage so I returned them. Amazon sent a new set in a proper box with protective bubble wrap and they arrived undamaged. Got the installation done okay and only spilled a few drops of diesel juice. Fired her up and backed out of the garage only to have my bride come smokin' outta the house to tell me the truck was leaking profusely, about the same time that the Low Fuel Pressure light came up on the info. display. Shut her down and sure enough the fuel line from the under hood fuel filter had popped off. My fault for not paying close enough attention and allowing myself to be distracted by the cold and my freezing hands. I put the line back on and drove right to the car wash to wash down the engine bay, motor and under the hood. Sheesh, whatta mess!
Also noted that one of the plastic "fingers" in the bottom of the frame rail filter housing that hold the filter in place had broken off and was laying in the bottom of the housing. Man, they sure build those housings in a fragile (read CHEAP) design. Is one broken finger missing in there going to be a problem? Should I order a new housing?
Cheers and Thanks!
It is up to you, but my filter housing just floats around with only the fuel lines holding it in position. It was like that when I bought it. It probably bounces around, but has never posed a problem
