Did my usual six month oil change today with Mobil 1. The truck had no other issues according to the mechanic. So I'm good for another 6 months.

Greased the driveshaft spline earlier this afternoon. Cured the jerk/thunk I had when going up a hill from a stop. The splines had never been serviced and after 110k miles was completely dry! Removed old motorcraft clamps with a flat head screwdriver (special tool??? ya right lol), pulled back rubber boot,greased it and installed new hose clamps. Drives so nice now!!

Today-pumped up second set of tires for installation tomorrow :)
