What did you do to your Gen 1 today?

Today I replaced my wiper motor, the intermittent controller and the co-pilot side power mirror.

Might not seem like much but I have a huge feeling of satisfaction..

Next is the KDP mod, 4" exhaust, cold air intake, etc.

I need to grease those squeaky plastic bushings on the wiper arms, on the flip side, haven't had to hear them, we haven't had rain in months, when you do the kdp mod, make sure to remove, clean, and red locktite all bolts holding inner cover to block.

Got mine on the highway for the first time in about 2 months. She was really wanting to stretch her legs.

We got hammered with rain today.... eastern NC... my yard is mush, the G. Shepard can't even walk across it without slinging sod. I'd take some of your dry mkittle !

So what do you all think?

I know it's a crappy cut and paste but I really like it.

Wow I was trying to figure out how you installed Crab Steering until I looked closer,

They look good on your truck.
