Back from a great run at Truckhaven could not have been more please with the truck. Sliders were great and they got a good work out for the first out.

the first mark :D

After the Night Run :thumbsup:

New Shackles were great also could tell the Difference between these "C" Channel shackles and the Cheapie AZ ones. Since the back end did not feel so dissconnted this time out unlike prior runs.

went out on the night run Saturday night and came back with this flesh wound :cool:

so after the Run i was feeling rather inspired and of course taking Monday off work too. I finally got a chance to break out the new welder and give My mad welding skills a whirl lol.

repaired the Latch thingy on the rear bumper

Finished product

and repaired one of the leaks in the Headers

Next up for this Truck?
It's time to tear into the front Axle and start showing it some love since a whole new crop of noises have surfaced in it. and I need to get the nose up again since the springs are really giving up the ghost badly. And oh yea i still have the Radius Arms to get on also.

With another Truckhaven run in the books. It seems the noises in my front axle are getting worse.:eek: now it has also seemed to pick up a noise like a screeching sound when the driver side is stuffing itself.

And Like DB1 my Fenders/inner Fenders are going a diet also i have finally have had enough with the tire constantly hitting the pinch welds and the fenders themselves.:mad:

While i was at Truckhaven i got this new addition for the X:D

and then i found this..........
DCFC0177.jpg

it been doing this for awhile but did not realize how bad it was getting. It actually wearing a groove in the axle.:( Now to figure out what to do about it.

And unlike someone else this the only carnage i have this time out.;)
