Question What did you do to your truck today?

Hey all, a few other forums I'm on have a thread like this where you can say a few words about what you did to your rig recently. I did a few searches and didn't find anything and I don't recall seeing it on DTR. The other forums have hit thousands of posts on these threads and I figured why not start one here!

I'll start it off with Today I changed my front brake pads for the first time at 156,000 km's, replaced the anti-rattle clips and had a good look at the recalled tie rod they put in yesterday. I was amazed to see the pads still had lots left but we're pretty glazed and burnt.

Feel free to post pictures, comments, rants, etc.

OK, I'll put up a couple of recent work days. Washed, waxed and detailed (at least a little ) the beast. Took the Timbrens off and installed a pair of Air Lift bags. Here are some pics of the beast, at 15 years old I think that she still looks pretty clean. A few dents and scratches. nothing too terrible though other than the drivers side box at the back where I jack knifed a small trailer into it .

Not much interest it seems.

No, I think it's a cool idea for a thread; this is just the first I've seen of it.

I climbed under mine and touched up a bit of surface rust on the frame with rust converter. Just getting ready for winter coming .

Hit a deer, pulled off the grille and headlight to see how bad it was underneath. M1 bumper took it like a champ but the AC condenser and headlight are done.

Drive by mine and looked at it, does that count for anything. Been needing to put a clutch in, just haven't had time.

Changed the oil and change the radio on the 01. I don't have to change cd's or cassettes any more. Finished changing the locks on the utility bed.

Repaired a broken wire for the rear running lights - a real PITA to track it down. Installed a couple of new rubber 5 wheel hitch thingies to replace the destroyed, broken and missing ones. Interior detail cleaning, window washing and filling of fuel (OUCH! >$6.31 per imp. gallon). Installed 250W mono block for the as yet to be acquired sub woofer. A good day!

Cheers!

Mike

I vaccummed mine out. For the first time ever vaccummed the headliner...man was it dirty. Nothing extremely exciting other than its always clean now with the new satin paint job.

I installed the sub box - nuttin fancy, 10" sub in a vented enclosure. 500 watt capable and it sounds pretty good. I cleaned up the ground wires at the batteries because a couple of days ago the TC kept dropping out and reengaging and when I took my foot off the fuel feed the TC switch light kept flickering as if the TC had not fully released or was doing the engage/disengage thing. Ran out of time to test drive as got some disturbing news from the GP and have to go see a specialist next week. Got me pretty worried.

Cheers!

Mike
