It's been about three weeks since I drove it last and it looks like next Monday is when the final parts come in to put it all back together! It seems so far away!
I saw an old 12v cummins "rolling coal" on the highway today and I look at him to see it's a kid my age or younger with his flat billed hat on backwards and a Holden bro's diesel sticker across the windshield. Pissed me off seein him think he is cool while I'm stuck in the slowest suburban ever made and not able to show him how the real trucks play!:help

If it makes you feel any better i'm 1700mi away from mine for the next 60 days and there are tons of diesels out here lol. Got stuck with a Nissan Altima too.. (although, I am proud to say it IS trail rated.. just like jeeps hehe) Definitely feeling the pain already! I feel like someone needs to teach that dude how to wear a hat as well as how real trucks play lol

I dunno how you do it. I'm gonna do all fluids filters and ATF Hoot flush as well as a CV boot and Transgo, and the thought of the truck being down for the DAY sux. Only part keeping my sanity is that at least I'll be WORKING on the truck. Good luck, hope your parts arrive safe and on time.

I know how you feel. My truck has been super good to me and has yet to let me down but damn have the aftermarket mods screwed me over. First it was parts missing in my trans rebuild that was like a month down then it was like the worlds first bad 4094vvt that was at least a month. Now I'am scared to do anything to it

LB7 engine bays are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more open than the LMM and a little easier to work on. I couldn't believe it when I look under the hood of an LB7. The LMM engine bay is stuffed and is a PITA

I don't care dude, heads vs turbo is no comparison.......... Not saying at all that he's stupid for it taking so long, most guys wouldn't even attempt it and I think he's around my age (20) so he obviously isn't super experienced and probably doesn't have the right tools too make it easy.
