Finally figured out what the problem was with the driver window. it hasnt worked since i got the truck. checked out all the wiring, thats good.. hmm must be the motor, pulled the motor out and moved it by hand hooked it up to the plug and presto it works. musta had a dead stop on where it was at. reinstalled and motor works..




next finally pulled out the carpet, what ya know the driver side carpet is SOAKING wet and there is rust... wonderful.. good thing i bought carpet from a guy for cheap.. so washed the whole floor. the problem was the wire plug under the seat was poped out and mud and water came up into the floor. so washed down all the floor let it dry and painted... here is the before and after...

before



After






also worked on the dash. first the stock dash peice that goes around the (gauges, headlight switch, vent, radio, ac, ashtray) had about 5 broken clips. well when i went on the parts hint i picked up a new one. notice in the before the astray is sticking out and down thats how it sat.. now its all better lol..

before



After





now here is how the suspension is all torn apart





spindles all sand blaster and painted, also here is the bearing drivers and seal driver for the spindle needle bearing my father made.. good stuff...






Next I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone with a TTB suspension and replacing axle u-joints, here is the axle machined down so you can run full C-clips instead of the half clips that the U-joints come with. this way less likely hood of it popping the half clip and spitting out a U-joint cup..







Thats it for today more tomorrow....

why did you take out the radio, or do you have the pictures backwards?

oh and that might be why my driver side floorboard keeps getting wet, i might have to pull my carpet and look...

well if you read thats not the same dash piece, and also its a POS alpine from like 1986, it was wired up with house wire nuts. and it wouldnt even turn on. lets just say it found its way to the trash quite quickly. i still have a Pioneer DEH-6700 laying around that i will put in it

im sorry but almost all of the new pioneer stuff is junk, the radios suck feature wise and the speakers are cheaply built.

i had two pioneer speaker in my doors and i was only pushing 75watts to them.

it only took the speakers four weeks to die, now i have kenwoods and i beat the crap out of em, been in my truck for over two years now and they still sound new.

Pioneer headunits are top quality....unless you get the cheaper Wal-Mart models, they are great radios..

I don't doubt it, they say there 240 watt but for the price they are I bet they sound like poop. I'll be upgrading to components when I amp everything anyway.
