This was over the weekend. Dug out the bar it's in to get at the trailer. Started the Dodge for the first time since November then used it to drag my winter truck (chevy) and trailer out of where it got stuck. After that a took it snow bogging a bit. It was fun.

I striped the paint off my extra set of valve covers. Then sanded the cast flashing off of one. that's as far as I got it has been raining off and on.

My dads D, I struggled with some standard issue, rust belt bleeder screws. 2 outa 4 aint bad!
Then replaced 1 wheel bearing and packed the rest and installed new brake pads
Oh yeah, we also installed new battery and 1 end on the positive cable.
I think that was my first time messing around with the front end of a 2 wheel drive truck, I've always driven 4x4's. The 2 wheelers I did own as a kid were totalled before I could replace any parts other then the oil filter LOL
