    Over the last few days the 60 has been stripped, drivetrain pulled from the 45 etc. So what were some of the f***in buttmunchin previous owner dingles found on the 45?

    How about:
    No f***in oil filter. :eek: It was just routed for recirculation. Hello, Earth to Beavis. Did I find a 45 that was owned by a long distance cuz of stuck (wait, is it the same cuz or Arya's?)

    Shoeless Joe Jackson apparently once owned the rig too (see attached).

    Broken ubolt on rear :ban:

    Alt bracket not attached - just kind of freeballin :doh:

    Oh, and of course may as well weld all the f***in bolts to the frame when tightened (not captive nuts - but rather the bolts) :doh: :doh:

    45 will be dd for a while as some bits are pulled off the 80. Then once the 80 is replaced the 45 will be the trail rig and town beater etc. I only work about 8 miles, all country roads, from where I live, so I can drive it to work no problem - 2F, trans and tcase as well as front knuckles etc from 60 are going to the 45. Eventually I'll have another beater trail rig, but after puttering around at CMCC with a stocker rig I decided I can learn a lot more from driving something close to stock for awhile. Biggest mistake I ever made was modding the 80 too quick. The 45 will never be far from stock.

    If that truck would have come from MS, I would have sworn it was owned by my late father-in-law.

    Agreed a 1/2 - 3/4 inch vibrahm lift is pretty unmatched in terms of imagination and the pursuit of function AND fashion...

    No pictures, but one customer had something like 6 pucks for a lift, we would stop and watch the shifter move back a couple inches, accelerate and watch it move forward several inches.........

    It was like being on one of those rides at the park.
