Finally got around to installing the auxiliary reverse lights. Waiting for it to get dark to aim them.

Replaced the turn signal arm assembly that was causing the high beams to come on at start up. Now I'm chasing an electrical issue that is causing the hazard fuse to blow.

Added an additional leaf to the rear springs and installed Bilstein shocks on all four corners.

Cleaned up my mud flap brackets in preparation for re-painting.

Had new rubber put on at the local Discount Tire. I figured I'd have to replace them some time over the winter, as I just hit 40K on them. But while returning to my winter home (RV resort in Ingram, TX) I picked up a large screw. I knew DT wouldn't put a plug in a worn out tire, so I just drove it the 1-1/2 miles to the park and changed it there. Really tore up the sidewall!

Got a good price on a set of Yokohamas that have a moderately-aggressive tread (I'll still be doing some off-road driving during hunting trips), and good traction in the rain on the way home from DT, but they are very quiet (great for highway driving/towing). And they have a 70K mile warranty, so I should be good for another 4-6 years!

Brownie,

They look great , seen them during my morning walk around the CG today, and I'm sure you plan to keep those new tires off the icy roads this evening

Today I test drove two potential replacements. On the way home my low gas lite came on. Even thou it was only $2.02/gal, I only put in $20 worth- 1/3 tank.

Give me a sign.

Reading over my own post just drew an old memory. My father (RIP) owned a dealership (Buick, Pontiac, Land Rover) back in the 60's. When cars were low on gas he gave the testing drivers a chit worth $5 at the local Mobile gas station. As I recall gas was about $0.25 /gal then.


This leads me to another old memory. Back in the old days of DOS I knew how to make a cents symbol. I don't remember how anymore. Senile?

I have kept mine safe and warm in the garage....the roads are icy and the City has had over 225 wrecks the past 2 days. I'm getting cabin fever but the 2500HD still has straight sheet metal and no scratches. I will put up with it a couple more days.

I cleaned the SNOW! off mine.. it's ARIZONA! SNOW ain't supposed to happen at this elevation. I moved from MI to get away from that stuff.

My F350 won't fit in my garage. But, like yours, thankfully mine still has straight sheet metal and no scratches. And I plan to keep it that way. I'll drive my wife's car until the roads are better.
