Just went through the build thread that extended cab swap was cool love the bikes too, and I never thought about that tech tip for taping in the cup holders! This thing has come a long way man, now get some damn street scene mirrors!
thanks! and no way on the SS mirrors, I spent forever looking for these power-folding envoy mirrors
I suppose I could use this opportunity for an update.
My laziness has really gotten the better of me. I have NEVER had any part of my truck in a shop. ever (except paint). well, I got really lazy, and needed to change the U-joints on my DS. So I took it to some local guy at a relatively new shop. ever since, It's been wobbling and getting worse.
so I take the shaft out, take it to another long standing shop to get it balanced, and the guy tells me he won't touch any sort of s-10 driveshaft because he's gotten burned on them so many times.
So I pretty much had a ****y driveshaft. I went to the JY, pulled one from a 2003 (got lucky because I found an extended cab 2.2 manual) and I completely rebuilt the thing (carrier bearing and all) like I should have done in the first place. since then, no wobbles
so after that got all sorted out. I felt really bad for my old girl so I bought her a bunch on new parts and pampered her.
PITA drums cost me a hammer, tank of MAP gas, and full an of PB blaster
much nicer and easier front replacements. replaced the bearings cause they needed it pretty badly
couldn't figure out why my truck wasn't going anywhere when I was all done and ready to test drive it
really, I haven't done much to her other than routine maintenance. she's pretty strong.
I did however, find my first sign of rust
luckily it's very small and not progressing at all. and it gives me a good excuse to paint the thing this summer (staying with white)
....and some other updates
got some ink
bought a "new" toy
saw this badass thing
