Friday, i pulled the truck outside for a bit to add some more preload to the front coilovers. springs are getting tired after 4-5 years now. Ill have to change to a new spring ive wanted to try. had my daughter out helping me, shes 2.5 now and i swear she grabbed every greasy thing she could, tie rod ends, ball joint boot, and hitch ball. she had an allen wrench and was telling me how she fixed the front end and that she wanted to help add more pre-load. she tried . spent more time cleaning the grease off her so we could go to the wife's school fair than i did working on the truck!

Default "OFFICIAL" What did you do to your D-Max today?

Cleaned off the dirt and slapped some lipstick on this pig!
I really donít like polishing and waxing because I find all the imperfections and my OCD goes to a new level lol
It was nice to spend some time with the old gal
Itís only been 2 years since her last detailing like this

Nothing exciting, replaced the rear transfer case output seal, no more garage spots. Getting ready to put my traction bars back on for summer

Sanded some surface rust off the bottom of the frame where I high-centered on a whoop a while back. Rattle can primer and satin black paint and now I no longer twinge when I get under her. Need to see about having the tranny flushed and refilled...

Thanks guys! I sand blasted the frame and had a friend of a friend paint it with some kind of semi gloss. It holds up pretty decent to hammer strikes and such. The cross members, all suspension pieces, and misc brackets were blasted and painted with kbs rust seal. That stuff is the shit, you can beat it with a hammer and it won't chip

Finally installed the Boost Auto module I've had for quite a while now.

I also changed the door hinge pins and brackets. That was a PITA.

Replaced front drive shaft u joint due to bad vibration over 45mph. Hit the track to test it out with some 4wd launches. Ran a 13.6 on stock trans and a 100hp tune.
