I'm happy with it, looks better and everything lines up nice. Short drive and all was good. I'm going to put a few miles on tomorrow and double check everything.

Put some more miles on today and all was good. I thought it felt more stable and my wife agreed and she isn't a car person so if she noticed a difference then I'd say its a good investment for anyone on the fence. I'm going to re torque everything just to make sure then on to some new tires.

checked the spacers and all was good. Picking up some winter treads tomorrow and started to investigate the blower motor resistor. The cover is missing so previous owner must have been looking at at one time. I'm going to pick up a new one and try to fab up a cover. Going to look for a new rear bumper as well, everything is rusted here so might as well go new.

I got lucky with my bumper. I found one that someone had pulled off at the junk yard that only had some minor surface rust on the inside. If I hadn't found it I would have bought a new one.

LMC wants 192 Canadian but is out of stock and my local NAPA wants $250 Canadian so I'm thinking it through.

I've had a stuck rear caliper bugging me so decided to just buy new pads, rotors and calipers. New fuel filter change and service as well. Hate to spend so close to Christmas but it is what it is.

New drivers side wiper arm installed. All is good now so hopefully won't have that issue again.

Starting to plan the spring/summer upgrades:

intake gasket fix, plugs/wires/cap/rotor and probably do the spider injector too. Any other items I should do at the same time please let me know.

Replace the rear bumper, few rust spots cleared up and repainted
replace rear shocks and find a nice set of summer rims

the rear bumper has really been bothering me so I bought a replacement through Stylin Trucks. 20% discount code came in the email so thought it was as good as a time as ever.
