Gonna give my TB a nice warm bath for the new year. Nothing else better to do at work.

Noticed a small ding on the tailgate presumably from one of the neighbor kids. :mad:

A couple evenings ago I ran over something in the road kicked over from the other lane by another car. I'm not sure what it was, but it didn't seem to do anything to the truck or the tires. No marks, scrapes, or cuts on the tire at all. It just made a clatter noise when I ran over it. But now I've noticed a few times a slight wub-click-wub-click sound when making turns sometimes. Not sure if it is related at all or if I'm now just hearing it because I turned the radio off and was listening for anything abnormal after running it over. The first thing that came to mind was the driver side CV from the sound and how it needs a fairly tight turn to make the noise. I won't have a chance to look at it for a few days, but I'm also not driving anywhere for a few days either, so I'll just have to check it later.

Heck given the age of the axle (original with 152k miles on it) and how cheap they are, I might just go ahead and replace it anyway.

I get more damage on my cars over time while parked in our garage than anywhere. Never can catch them in the act. Luckily it is small but still only had it a few weeks, have yet to park next to any other car except at home in the garage.

I installed 4switches in the front top console. It got too dark to run wires so that will come tomorrow or Tuesday.

The plan so far is:
1. Front pair of off-road lights
2. turning my 800-watt power inverter on and off
3/4. Future off-road light bar on top

I could use a good detail right now. Last night, shortly after midnight, a few of the guys at the party decided that it was a good idea to go celebrate by doing donuts on their 4 wheelers. This of course meant that I had to follow them. My truck is completely covered in mud, but I am proud to say that he did some great donuts and did a pretty good job of tilling up the entire yard. :thumbsup:

TLDR: What did you do to your GMT today? I got him completely covered in mud! :wootwoot:

Aside from getting that yellow bowtie replaced, I have no exterior plans. Oh, well, I do need to get this fixed:

New front and rear differential fluid, transmission filter, and 4.75 quarts of new transmission fluid. I also installed my new Dorman transmission pan w/ drain plug to make this a much easier process next time. Two things of note; The old filter was half metal and had ridges on top, the new one was all plastic w/o ridges. The dimensions were the same otherwise. I left the old upper seal in the transmission and threw the new one away. The filter fit snug. The new gasket was rubber, and the old one cork.

I installed the backup camera that came with my LCD GPS but It looks awful. I just purchased a smaller one off eBay and waiting for it to get here. This one is like taking up the whole rear! It's only temporary ofcourse until I get the new camera.

What did I do to my GMT today you ask? I :sadcry: over it for a minute. I noticed last night, one of my switchbacks was funky, and was showing a light orange instead of white (both circuits were active instead of just one). Checked the contacts, and all seems fine, it's just going bad. Gotta check the warranty terms.

So in the meanwhile, it's back to stock bulbs... It burns my eyes!! :banghead: :badday:

Edit: 60 day warranty. LAME!! :mad:

Stock bulbs SUCK! I went for a drive last night and the regular stock halogen bulbs suck. Having my windshield tinted doesn't help either I'm sure :biggrin:

i dont know if was legal or not...but i think the o3 altima i had last had a tinted windshield... just a smidge.. i really liked it..little more privacy in vehicle and helped block out more light which my sensitve eyes liked..lol... and as far as light my stock tb lights put out more than the altima.. highs and lows.. and the fogs on the alt didnt do jack either... on the tb the fogs do help with the low beams on...and kinda covering the close up that i cant see..other wise it is black.. was thinking of doing some hid fogs but not sure.

Ordered my PCMForLess tune! :wootwoot:

Pretty much stock, 87 octane, shift level 2. Don't expect it to be a drastic difference, but looking forward to any MPG improvement and that sloppy shift tightened up.

I emailed a guy about an '06 LS 4x4 today, waiting to hear back. Otherwise I found a black LS 4x4 as well and the owner may be willing to wait until I get to FL to sell it. It was his wifes and she got a new car for xmas so this one is just sitting. its an '05, 82K miles or so and super clean inside and out. Keeping my fingers crossed as he is willing to sell for a damn good price.

took her on a surprise offroad excursion- by surprise i mean i was surprised. just got the engine replaced and for the first 500 miles need to keep it under 55mph so no highway. decide to get adventurous and take new roads home everyday to mix it up. today a twenty minute drive turned into a dirt road going endlessly through some recreation area but it was a thrill going down all the fun roads- eventually i did run back into society, 30 minutes later.

then treated her to a nice full tank and car wash to get all that salt dust and dirt off.

I finally got around to installing a Bull bar, Had to drive 300 miles to the shop that actually had OEM fitment. The shops around my area have it custom fit which I didn't want really. So 600 miles later I now have this (yeh played with the colors a bit lol) :wootwoot:

The mod Bug was hitting me pretty hard yesterday so just had to get it done :biggrin:

I also changed the Oil and Filter :smile:

Manually calculated my mileage for the first time on the 9-7 as I filled it up for only the third time. 16.79 mpg mostly highway. Was hoping for a lot more given the DIC and the light foot i've been trying out.

Every state is different. Can't do it in Minnesota but it is funny when you see a Florida car visiting with a blacked out windshield.
