Made the deal on mine in early December. Had to wait a month to get it shipped. Drove it 2 times and the exhaust fumes almost killed me, so I parked it in the garage the second week of January. Ordered loads of parts, lift kit, tires, etc. Waited another month for the parts to clear customs....been working in the shop with below freezing temps outside with my trusty reddy heater. Now it still sits, waiting for the correct bushes to clear customs again, so I can install the front radius arms, get an alignment and start driving again.....I'm hopeful that I'll be driving again next weekend. Wish it was this weekend...it's supposed to be sunny and 70 degrees. Anybody got a buddy in customs???




Always tell her you're looking for something for her....birthday present, anniversary present, vacation planning. She knows you're probably lying anyways.

Ha, we've been married for 23 years--if I use that excuse, she will probably kick me out of the house.

Well I don't suppose the part will ever be identified. I've asked several "Master LR" mechanics and none can name it. I think I'll put it back on the truck somewhere just so I can say I used it...


One good did come out of this post for me. The mention of the dipstick ferrule made me look a little closer at mine. After comparing the old to the new, I realized that the old had the truck running 1.5 qts low because the ferrule had slipped up on the tube.

Just open the bonnet and from 20 feet away and toss it in there.. Or act like you're working under the hood and that its a very delicate and important crucial unobtanium part and drop it in there.. There is no way it will hit the floor or EVER be found again..that's been my experience..
