Your truck will get up to temp while just idling? I live in Florida and have new t stats and still won't get up to 185 just sitting there.

Alright, my bad guys. I just did not see anything about it in all of the write ups and vids I watched on it. Can you explain to me what exactly needs to be honed/drilled out?

Yes. I use a factory grill cover this time of year and when high idle kicks in it’ll get to temp pretty quick.

Bought a gasket for my rear diff, probably will change it Friday night.

No known history, only that I stuck my finger in the fill plug to check before I bought it last fall and was OK but somewhat metallic looking.

I'm planning to pull the cover, clean with brakeclean, fill with O'Reilly cheap fluids, drive several miles with tight corners and repeat, filling with mobile 1 synthetic.

I welcome advice /suggestions

Took apart my climate control panel and right side steering wheel control to clean the sticky soda residue from the inside of the buttons. Salvage truck was in an accident, I'm assuming there was a soda cup in the cup holder when it happened.

Doubled up the tray sides to stop stuff blowing out/more storage.
Only took 2 hrs from start to finish good system!

I went with the 12” width and the plus length for the front and rear. My truck is stock height but want to level/lift the front. I will post photos when I get them installed.

This hole at the end of the rod. 41/64 drill bit will work perfectly.
