    New Transmission

    Ok rebuilt drivelines are in, new output shaft seal on the transfer case, new pinion seal. The new puller I bought is sweet, almost zero effort to pull the pinion flange. I couldn't see where the old seal was leaking, but to try and prevent the new one from leaking I used Hylomar on the non moving parts. Now to finish up the lugs on the battery cables, I need to solder them up, I did not have any flux... Sounds like my rock rails are almost done, he didn't have any 2X2 so he made them out of 2X3 instead, I may just plumb them up for air tanks lol. I was looking at my overload spring perches and I thought hey I can stick a scissor jack under there and get the spring to push out from the spring mount enough to change the bushings without having to pull the whole spring.... I'll let you know how it goes lol.

    Downpipe is out and will be getting rebuilt on Saturday and reinstalled in the car. Went and saw Jose at JS Performance who has done all the big stuff on the car since it had only 16,000 km on it.. Now at 457,000 km it needs to be watched like an old person does . Still rips out there pretty good when it merges onto the freeway. A new pipe is pretty steep. Rebuilding the existing one with a new flex section and new pipe off the back of the cat makes a lot more sense at half the price installed..

    I will try and remember to do that. We'll be doing that and the engine/transmission skid at the same time.

    New Transmission

    So I found out that dodge glues in the U joints, not sure when they started doing this, but it SUCKS. Heated up the first one by the carrier bearing and started pressing it out and the cap exploded. Decided I'd let Drivelines NW do it, and I had them change out the carrier bearing, ad new boots and balance both shafts. Cost more than I was wanting to spend, but now I won't have to worry about them and have to mess with those glued in joints. Funny thing is not all of them are glued in... weird. Figured well I'll pull the front shaft and take them both the DNW in the morning (Monday) and of course the T40 bolts stripped. Got one out with the impact, two out with the T40 hand tool and vice grips, and one I had to drill out, I had ARP bolts to replace them. Rear transfer case seal was simple, went to remove the rear flange and the tool I bought was 1/2" too small, so ordered a different one. Got the drivelines back, they did a real nice job. Installed the front, along with the new bolts. Rear is installed except the rear axle, got the new puller so I'll be doing that today. While I was under there I noticed the driver side front brake line had been rubbing the tire, I think when Les Schwab did my tires they snagged the brake line. Passenger side is just fine, but I ordered a new set, not worried about the tire as mine get beat to hell anyway. Oh and I finally got around to installing my Larry B battery cable fix... The kit is fine, but I am not happy with how short the battery cables are, I have some 90* lugs coming, I think they'll fit better then the way they are right now. I may just get a new crossover cable and install the new lugs on that, the current one is slightly corroded. OH... and I found some DEKA AGM's for $200 a pop, I may go with those instead of $300 each for Northstars.

    What a night and day difference. I would say the most notable is the difference in ride. So much better.

    Found the reason for my noisie VW... Pipe broke off the back of the Cat. Got the cat removed pretty easily. Looking for a new down pipe that doesn’t have the cat in it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Rear hitch on new Rams

    I'm on my second one! I rarely tow anything, but one of the few times I did, I pulled the ball mount out, walked away and forgot about the adapter.....until a few days later! I don't have a clue as to where it fell out.

    After I finished a transmission install in my friends 2004 that had less than 100 miles on new tires I promptly took a couple thousand miles off them in my driveway [emoji1787] he did not find nearly as funny as I did then he said "I didn't know my truck could do that!"

    It won't be the first time... I'm shocked I need a new Right Hand front wheel bearing.....LOL not really. Pretty sure that was caused by Malone Tuning..

    I should say this is the price here. It won't be the price on any other sites such as CL. Everyone like to feel their winning by beating up a price. Or down a price. But most here know when something is priced right. I think this is a deal. My dad is a potential buyer also. But he also wants to buy a 2nd house in Lake Havasu.....
