Nasty, leaking oil cooler lines out, new lines in. Despite what all the catalogs say, upper/lower-left/right hoses are the same.

Some crafty individual should repopthose oil cooler lines. Seems like once a week people on fb are griping about the leaks.

Been a while since anything has happened.
Had issues with the Gearvender driveshaft yoke, waited almost 2 weeks for a replacement. One that came with it wouldn’t go in all the way. Replacement slipped right in!

Nice build

Nothing.... yet! Looking at options. 2-3” is all I want in the rear. But since I do haul with it, I am concerned about dropping to far, or not having enough payload.
A couple suggestions I have received is
Take a couple leafs out of the stack, that’ll give me 2”, and add air assist bags for when I’m hauling. That will give me a softer ride empty, but still have payload capacity.

And then the ride goes to crap!
1/2 way to the shop, hit a pot hole, and the truck shut off!
Power, spark, but no fuel!
Ended up getting the truck towed!

Been a while since any updates.
After the breakdown. Had it towed to a friends shop. He got it running, did front end Alignment, and converted the A/C to R134. Got it home and had some wiring to repair!
