    Dang you work quickly. Didn't you just get that thing a couple days ago? What did you have to do to it, other than paint?

    I didn't really need to do anything too it. I pulled it apart to check and repack the wheel bearings. Replaced the seal in the hub. Changed out the gear lube. I supose I'llpull th king pin caps off tommorrow and look in there......Although I have no idea what to look for. RyanB reminded me about the spindle bearing stuff that I forgot, other than that....I'm not gonna mess with it. 40K miles on the thing is nothin. Came from a CUCV. Most of thise trucks hardly ever get used or even put in 4 wheel drive. When I was in the Army, the battalion mail clerk had one that all he did with it was drive to the post office and back. 3 miles each way. I don't think it ever saw dirt. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
