i also did a 6hp mod. what is said mod, you ask...with a pick, i took out the 40 extra pounds of silt and sand that had made my vented rotor into a non vented rotor.

finally, i got rid of another spot of sketchy p.o. wiring. at least the wires were soldered (and rather stouty regardless of how it looks). the wires are now "routed" and have actual connectors.

Cool pics Ige. They'll help if I ever tear into mine like this.

nasty

why not use that duplicolor spray on bedliner for the back and forgo the carpet?

I have fallen in like with that stuff. I sprayed my fzr frame and components with it, and it has held up real well. needs a long cure time though...

plus, it's cheap. 7.00 a can.

Yeah, or why not spray the whole thing? Would be like Shorty's 40 (his is red), but whatever color... then you could have that hose-it-out 80 everyone's always dreamed of...

And I yanked my rear carpet a few years ago, truck has smelled better ever sense. Plus the drawers & junk that get bolted down through the floor are much more secure without that big pad & carpet "washer" back there.

used the duplicolor in my 40 and not impressed. plus, this is my "luxury" ride, so i'd kinda like to keep a rig with carpet.

weather and side gig permitting, i'll get the carpet in this weekend. $7 at the pressure washer the first time, then a soaking in tide and another $10 at the pressure washer. almost looks great, so definitely worth it and definitely cheaper than new carpet. you almost can't tell where the big stain was.

also got the second knuckle rebuilt. this one went much smoother than the driver's side. (i had one bolt that holds the felt already snapped off and i snapped one, so they took, some work..the other four bolts were so rusty that i had to replace them). had to do the 6hp mod on this side too

next on the front end is to grind out the ring around the drain plug and finally change out the fluid.

the interior is back together...looks so much better.

also got the driving lights wired back up (the wires were disconnected when i got it), cleared out the smashed drain plug ring from around the plug and swapped the front diff juice with fresh synthetic.

slowly but surely...
