    Nice writeup @98100Crusher and @gatormark91 I did not apply any sealant to my cover gaskets although I did see the two spots that it was applied to. I respectfully disagree with putting vasoline around the gasket as vasoline could lead to...

    Just did my driver's side using a Fel-Pro kit from Amazon. Notes on the prep and photos below. I'm not an experienced mechanic but can usually follow a step of steps that might fill in some gaps from the FSM. Step1: Hose removal. I usually...

    Any one have an idea on how to replace the tube seals? I am doing my timing belt and also replacing my valve cover gaskets and the tube seals on the PS are cracked. I read about removing the rivets but to much work. the seals have like a metal...

    I couldn't find much info on valve cover gaskets, so I'll post what I learned. Mine were leaking slightly causing a burning oil smell. Not using any oil really. I didn't worry about it until I had to change the starter and then I was pretty deep...

    Just did this today. Holy wow what a difference! I have replaced all rotors, all calipers, and all pads searching for why my brakes were never that good. Immediately after doing this, it feels like the truck lost half its weight. This thing...

    Nice, I did the exact same thing on my rig. Was gonna have my wife sew the 5 shades but it wasn't needed in the end. The material cuts clean. We used Reflectix, which is the same as a folding shade, just in a big roll. I keep the back window...

    I had the same problem. Install notes said to offset 5 teeth which maxed out my front end and had zero droop. I only had to offset 1 tooth to get it right and I have winch, bumper, skids etc.

    Update I completed the job but only did a 4 spline off sit and that gave me just enough room to put the adjuster bolt in. The 4 off still gave me the 2inch’s I was looking for. I was installing the ome bars in which the instructions state a 5...

    How to install them! I counted the splines with the five spline offset. With this off set I can’t get the bolts back in on the anchor 🤦‍♂️ . If I get the bolts in I can’t get the adjusting both in. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance

    Steven, Thanks for the compliment! We had to sleep sideways to fit all of us in there. And let me tell you, it wasn't cozy for the wife and me. But the boys did not have any problems with it.:D Let me know when you're ready! Mine does...

    Window shades I am also going to test quilted/insulated window shades for all six windows, windshield and the rear window. They are supposed to keep the interior of the rig cool during summer and warm during winter. Offer good protection...
