When I purchased the fuel pump housing, u also invest in a new set of fuel injectors. I'm not sure about the plastic lines the run from the pump. We'll take a look at what we have and the photos that were sent to me. Thanks to all that sent photos if their fuel system.

I was getting out when I got to work and I dropped my hat on the ground. When I bent over to pick it up the door swung into my head. Lol. I'm not sure if it was the latch or the switch that locks the door that got me.

Mine just returned from the shop... rebuilt heads, valves, rockers, push rods, timing chain, and a new cam (stock). Plus a TF pro-sport suspension and their coil over steering damper (jury is out on that one though).
They did some glamor shots of it too.

Been there done that. Have you known the joy that happens when the door striker catches and tears your pant pocket as you get out of the truck ?
Wasted a pair of Tommy Bahama silk pants that way and a couple pairs of shorts.
X Engineering's pant savers are on my wish list.

Its strange how these inanimate objects have very distinct personalities. Some of which are downright beastialities

I've caught a pocket or loop or something, but fortunately it didn't rip.

My current strikers look like this:

No those are anti-burst strikers. They are relatively safe compared to the push button door strikers that will denude you @ the worst possible moment

Fancy rotors on the rear. I don't think they are any real improvement over stock, but they were significantly cheaper than Genuine. I used Genuine pads. I also discovered both rear brake bleeders are broken off.

Finished the Clutch Master & Slave replacement

It was exactly as everyone had described...
A ridiculous example of Nigel's lack of engineering... one more fucking quarter of an inch and the clutch box would have slid in and out in half the time...
Didn't break either of the hard lines, but definitely smart to buy them for the project, cause the upper nut on the lower hard line really wanted to snap off. I tickled and teased it for quite a while before it relented, but if my frustration had gotten the better of me, it would have broken very easily. I wound up replacing everything anyway.
Getting the Master to prime was tricky, but with a little positive pressure it finally pressured up...
Three hours total.

Okay, took out quite a bit of wire added over the years before coming to an impasse. I need to take out the factory AC duct and lower dash. Does anyone know how to do this correctly? Any help will be greatly appreciated. I am heading to read the old posts throughout the forum as well.

I brought new fuel injector lines but we're stuck looking for all the lines that goes from the fuel filter housing to the fuel pump. I've tried RovahFarm and River North but no luck so far. I was to to have them made for me but that would cost me $300.

Thank you. It achieved the three things I wanted out of it- tire carrier, receiver hitch, and some protection. I may make a few more since I have gotten some good feedback on it.
