My '97 has been sleeping in the garage since November other than firing it up every month and warming the engine. Sleeping on a battery tender like it does every winter up here in Michigan. Before I put it away last fall, changed the oil, anti-freeze, transmission oil, checked the diff's and added a coolant filter.... and a jug of Nano-Borate in the oil too. Love that stuff. Certainly makes the HUEI engine purr.

TC is sitting right next to the truck in the garage. Sleeping as well. Soon to be awakened. Spring is coming soon.

Easy project. Installed an 05-07 grill on our 01. Though mostly cosmetic, but never cared for it, the old grills paint was going away, pretty scuffed up.
Really like it, truck looks like its only 15 years old now.


Just need the 08 mirrors. Then, it'll only look 11 years old.

I just washed mine today. Still had road salt on it from our camper pickup journey. Spent plenty of time washing underneath. They don't salt around here, so it's unusual for any of my vehicles to see salty roads.

Took it to the dealer yesterday. Had the drag link jam nut recall checked out. Torque value was fine on jam nuts.

Changed the oil/filter/plugs/cap/rotor, and went to a 180* Tstat. She goes in Tuesday for rear brakes, alignment, trans service, and AC service before the 1,100+ mile trip to Oregon

I watched the odometer roll over 200,000 miles and changed the oil and filter for the umpteenth time. [emoticon]

Wasn’t today, but before the last time out. Finally, got the backup camera back working. Did an oops a couple of years ago and pulled the harness out when I forgot to unplug it. Not that much work, just getting the harness working again with the tailgate camera and then just plugging the CameraSource camera in after loading the TC.

Also checked all of my lights on the TC. [emoticon] Well, the person who stopped next to me insisted they didn’t work. They were all normal when I stopped to check them. Must have seen me slow down hitting the tow/haul and thought my brake lights were out, but hard to say.

Gettin Red ready for the trip back to socal I had a "noise" when idling. Turned out to be a bad bearing on the tensioner pulley. Had to order the whole assembly cause the bolt that holds it is frozen solid, it's the original that's 30 years old and the bolt is steel and the assembly is aluminum. The whole thing was only $20.00 more than the new pulley and I'll mess with it when I get home and have more tools and time.

We were leaving tomorrow, but that has been pushed to Saturday now...lol. The joys of a 30 year old truck.
