Installed 3.5" axle bump stops today. I like 10 minute jobs better than all day projects.

Repainted the recessed area where the headlights go and swapped out my Hella headlights with Speaker LED units. They look cool and am now anxiously waiting for the sun to set.

Got the Tickford on in record time, 35 mins. Almost waited until it was too cold and would have been a nightmare to stretch to connect snaps.

Put a makeshift headliner in my pickup cab. It came sans headliner....

couple of sticks of 8'x1/4"x1 3/4" pvc slats (4 bucks home depot) cut tem to length to bow between the slots in the front over windshield (6) and the lip above the rear window. Put a grey 4x6 down quilt from Goodwill up there. Works like a charm. Looks fairly clean for such a cheap quick fix. Noise-wise, different vehicle. WIth pressure and insulation against the big drum head that is the roof, It cuts noise in half Do the same to the hood and under the dash and it should be all but civilized.

Removed, cleaned and replaced oil pan. Drain plug leaves about 1/2 qt of goop in the bottom even when its jacked to pour better.

Put about 80:20 against it not leaking. Sure enough, this afternoon, 1 drip coming down. Slower than it was from the army, and not nearly as covered with silicone, but it'll spread.
SO, now I'm down to 2 leaks. Neither are dripping on my driveway. Transfer case ( at front output shaft housing) and rear of oil pan. Examining the area, I don't think there's much chance that the rear of the oil pan will ever be sealed for long.

I got my boost gauge, EGT and extra volt meter hooked up into the Mud Pod. Plus changed all dash lights for LED green...bloody speedo is still not good because of the stupid plastic light holders in the back...but it is much better too.

Where did you get the LED internal roof light? Is it a direct replacement for the OEM doom light?

I've actually had mixed results with cheap LEDs from ebay...with the dome light I didn't figure it was worth saving a few bucks.
