    I got frustrated with trying to remove my oil pan so I rebuilt my alternator out of spite. New oem brushes and springs, Koyo bearings, oem condenser, high temp paint. Waiting to do the oil pan later this week.

    Sure Ed, it's DER-13950 from Summit Racing. I had to make my own brackets to fit it in there. Theres a few minutes worth of 10+% grade on my commute and today I pulled over at the top and hopped out with my infrared thermometer to check temps. I had 190 at the cooler inlet and the fan was running. I drove the remaining mile or so home and the fan was off when I got home. I got some thermocouples and a digital display that I'm going to play with in the next week or so to get some better numbers on temps.

    This evening I replaced fan clutch, brake hoses, pads and sway bar hardware this evening. The list to prep for SAS 2018 is getting shorter.

    It isn’t really the weekend in Aus, but I am a school teacher, and on holidays - so every day is a Saturday at the moment...
    During our last trip away the drivers side speakers kept dropping out - I have no knowledge of car audio systems, but it annoyed me not being right... I went to a car audio shop looking at the cheapest gear they had to fix my issue (the amp was stuffed as I could wiggle random wires on it and have it temporarily work...) - but after they had a look at my system I realised that the previous owner had put in some pretty expensive components, and I decided if I was going to spend money, then I wanted it to sound better than what was already there....
    So...
    The front splits are MB Quart 6.5’s with Alpine 6.5 s types (apparently) in the rear with a 4 way Bridgeable Pioneer Amp...
    I replaced the amp with a Pioneer 5 way and added a Rockford Fosgate 12” P2 Sub in a sealed box (following Rockford’s volume calcs and shaped to follow the angle of the back seat) - I have only managed to temporarily hook it up and have a quick play but it sounds awesome!!

    Be sure to swap that pulley. Pretty sure the one you have pictured needs to be swapped w/ the stock single v belt pulley.

    Turned it around just to see what it is - it would normally face the other way (just be able to see the carpeted box...)

    Winifred. I drove there once from Arkansas to float the MO River. I'd read a story prior in National Geographic where they interviewed some people in the bar. I went there and mentioned it to them and they had a puzzled look until someone said, oh....those were the people in here with the camera's. A good memory and I'd love to go there again. Was 20 years ago.

    That's awesome! The Winifred Tavern is still operating as the only watering hole for 40 miles in any direction. Lots of history there...

    When I was quite young, my family spent a week floating the Missouri from Fort Benton to the P-N bridge outside Winifred. It was a spectacular experience, though the biting flies and mosquitoes were always a drag.

    I have the adjustable tuff dog steering damper. How do you like the shocks?

    I think they're great. I've got about 14k miles on them and no complaints on road or off. They are quite a bit heftier than the stock shocks and seem to do a great job when loaded up heavy on rough stuff and still ride nice on the road.

    I have very limited time in OME equipped trucks, and none with what I would call a comparable setup (similar age/miles on suspension and what I believe would be a heavy front/med rear setup). Making a comparison to a rusty clapped out OME kit of unknown age wouldn't be fair, nor would comparing to a stock weight 60 with no added weight and a heavy/heavy suspension. I have had positive feedback from others who have rode in it who have more OME seat time. That said, I like it and would do it again. Theres's some more info on my install thread. The Badger gets a new Tough Dog suspension

    You know how many times I’ve heard someone very popular on mud say to swap it? This pulley came off the crappy Cressida alt my truck had when I bought it. The GM 130 alt I switched over to had the double pulley and again I heard, ‘make sure you swap that...’

    Not to long ago in Nov, driving back from Pismo, my pass rear OME HD shock came disconnected from the upper shock lug. I didnt have a spare washer or nut. So I removed the entire shock for the rest of the drive home.
    Many many hours, fully loaded with RTT/ Awning. My truck weighs close to 7000#.
    I have 10 leaves in the rear and 7 up front. With the shock removed there was no difference in ride or handling, nor in appearance/ sag.
    Reinstalled the OME shock the following day.
    I've used OME since 2004, but I'd give TD a go if the have HHD shocks.
