Default What have you done to your rig today?

So I thought I'd start a thread for little odd-ball projects that don't really need a whole thread. A place where we can just throw out a couple lines about whatever it was that we did to our rigs and maybe a picture or two.

Installed all new inner and outer tie-rods and new steering bushings. After 200K+ miles, it was definitely time. She drives like a brand new truck now!
Huge thanks to Squishy! for helping me with that today.

Wiring....rebuild is almost complete. Hope to turn the key for the first time later this week!
V8 engine, 4 spd trans, power steering, disc brakes, winch, lighting, seats, electrical and paint. And it all started because I wanted a little more power! Almost a year in the making. I'd like to hit the 40s Only this year. I was on my way there last year when the pilot bearing went.

By the way, ToyTec in Thornton is having an open house next Saturday. Vendors, food, music and Toys.

I spent a good hour last night under the 40 in a gas station parking lot trying to get the lights to go back on. Eventually drove home holding a flashlight out the window.

I got nothing done on my trucks. But I did spend 5 hours getting the garaged whipped into shape so I can actually get a truck in there to work on. Heck, I can even get to my tools now!

Repairing my front paggenger Fender Flare and popping a dent out in same where I hit a huge rock in Moab. PITA. But learning how much one can twist in tight areas...
