Haha I'm the scared type. Even though I know I could do one, a head gasket's not one of my favorite jobs. So I backed off at 5k.

Stuffed mine in the ditch today on the way to work! Threw the belt. Had to be towed into work. Got it in detailing defrosting...

Truck is defrosted, and I got the belt back on. But now it needs power steering fluid. I don't see any breaks in the lines. And I won't know if it's leaking until I get some fluid in the system. I plan on filling it on break, and see what happens here...

Finally Updated my build thread of what I've been up to these last couple months. Today I built a back wall in my cab to mount all my accessories to.

Explorer full length console



Also took my 31s off and put my 235s back on. Mud tires are horrible for DD duty

Oil change and a quick wash yesterday--cleaner, but far from clean. New pads, rotors, and a brake fluid flush today.

Got the new wipers installed. Now I have the all metal frame wipers instead of the cheap half metal half plastic blades.

Put the last door on, and finally put the new bed on. Now she needs rocker panels (ok, headlights too) and it'll be set.

I installed my LED 3157 bulbs. Now I'm going to have to install the EP27 electronic flasher to get rid of the hyper flash. I did a search, and found several threads about this. Now I know what Flasher to get from the parts store.
