Freakin Truck! LOL

Well big blue has been makin some funny noise's as of late.. Like a clattering sound from the bellhousing.. at first I thought it was a cat breakin up or a starter gear stuck in the flywheel..... Well After takin my entire trans out tonight.. come to find out all the flywheel bolts were hand tight and one was almost completely backed out!!!! .... Soo it turned out ok... trans is really easy to get out actually.. Im gonna install a new rear main seal since mine leaks and install a new center carrier bearing,put the flywheel back in and loctite the bolts and torque them down and reinstall the truck back together.. I do love however sitting indian style under my truck with my head in the trans tunnel taking the clutch out.. just something i cant do in a mustang.. and the trucks not even on jack stands hahaha!

couple pics of the dissassembly and others.. notice new headlights, rollbar, KC's, 06 Mirrors :) shes coming along, next is front and rear bumpers and gear swap with and front locker :)

See new motor.. you and totally tell freeze plugs are new and it just looks mint haha other than the stupid oil leak!! The motor sat at my dealer for 4 yrs... soo a couple seals are leakin.. next is V/C's
