11.14.2010
gave myself an oil change. mobil 1 synthetic, k&n filter



11.22.2010-11.23.2010
ive always had a bogging/no get up and go on a cold start. so i went ahead and tried this: http://ford40.com/sputtering.shtml

left it to soak all night, dried today. there was some dirt/dust on the filaments. put it back in today along with a new maf from a cobra.
not only was there no more bogging when cold, i didnt have the slow response/bog related to having my battery unplugged and it relearning itself either.

i reccomend doing this if you have probs and notice the maf filaments are dirty.

the new maf sensor:

and the painted area behine the grille:
130_0579.jpg


i will be painting the grille, bull bar, front bumper, rear bumper all with bedliner.
and at some point paint along the sides of the truck following the top of the bumper line in bed liner



11.24.2010-11.28.2010
bed lined front bumper, rear bumper+rear sides, grill, and re-added wal-mart lights.
took off the hitch that was attached the the bumper also.

what would cause the lock/unlock button on my drivers door to not work. also on the passenger side the lock button doesnt work BUT the unlock button works on the passenger side.
I think it's usually a problem with the switch itself. Water gets in them being on the door like that and after years a bit of corrosion and crap on the contacts.
that makes sense. as i was running through beachy water holes prior to going home and finding out it didnt work anymore lol


so.... after my recent outing friday, and dipping the drivers side into water and getting stuck.... now all the lock buttons work again. LOL

i get so close then run into a snag. the lower balljoint on the passenger side is stuck. when i turn the nut the stud goes with it. impossible to impact it being inside the knuckle. cant get anything to fit in the slit thats in a good position to hold it.
im using a closed box wrench to turn it, i have no socket that size. this is what it looks like just incase:

I had issues like that. I put the floor jack under the ball joint and left the spring in. That put enough force on it keep it from spinning. If I had the spring off it would spin.

~Mark

EDIT: in your case there is no spring. You need weight on that axle so ball joint is pushed into the knuckle.
