Disappeared for a few months....

Nothing new on my end except purchasing a Nikon D300 in August, but...
  • Beard's super charged (I hate you...where's the write up? LOL...haven't search yet)
  • Stone actually got a real truck
  • Matt (99ranger4x4) is SAS'd
  • Bob and John have HAD to have done something, I just haven't found out what yet

I'm actually visiting to read up on changing diff fluid and trying to decide if I want to do it now (needs done as I'm leaking a little) or buy a better diff cover. Oh the more practical things I should have asked for my birthday last Thursday!

So catch me up you pansies, that includes you Razor.

John hasn't been on in forever. Bob put a supercharger on his 5.0 making his truck even more badass

Razor sold his truck and got a pink Miata

Welcome back man

Fits right in Hobbs now! Sweet! Does the exhaust fart flowers or rainbows and ponies? Can't help myself. My gf's cousin has a miata for his metrosexual feeling days and a lifted jeep for excessive consecutive metrosexual days.

aw common, its not THAT bad

yea its not hard, just leave the top bolt in and peel the bottom of the cover up letting it drain out, don't just pop the whole cover off at the same time.. I've never tried it, but i can't imagine it would end well.

First time doing it, but seems easier than changing the oil. AND definitely less messy (d**n RCD front pass side diff bracket spreading oil everywhere). Question is, do I want to drive to Hell Pisso (El Paso) just to get the exploder diif cover for the useless junkyards there. I could even go looking for an extension housing.

yea, that RCD bracket made it a pain in the ***! i hated changing my oil, i put a small pan up on top of the cross member, filled it 1/2 to 3/4 of the way, drained it and put it back up there to get the rest..


where were you all that time?

Dealing with myself - frustrations with work, depression as a result, and later onset of self-diagnosed seasonal depression, and just avoiding here in general because I can't afford mods; which gets me frustrated because there are so many things I'd like to do whether necessary or not.

I expected more out of you. A sas'd truck in INDIANA with no mountains to crawl and then you go and supercharge (one of the things above that I'd like to do). Gees! I mean you could AT LEAST come out here to harass me and Razor AND you could have used that money from the s/c to do it. LOL

And WTF....GRAY?! I was figuring blue or silver.
