The newest/newest generation, not yet college age may redeem their sorry arsed predessors.

Personally, its all good with me

The us could use migratory workers for the unwanted jobs or the worthless scum suckin college campus rats (CCR'S) to do them.

Eeks! Does that mean I will suffer incomplete or improperly preparred McDonalds meals the rest of my days?

The current unpatriotic generation better learn the word, "Crew"

That's as far as they are going with the views they possess

Dunno, looks hard to me!

Now the muffler ends about 14"-16" from where that massive tailpipe begins. So considering I only have a straight through 4" muffler to quiet things, I actually have the room to add a second muffler!

Remember that little one I took off of C-Max when I added the larger quieter one??? Well it just might see action once again.

I cut it down to get it as short as possible. With it slid all the way into the front muffler, the tailpipe is a few inches too long, so next up I may have to cut the front of it shorter to fit. But If I can swing it, I'll have two inline MBRP style mufflers which just may do a satisfactory job of controlling the noise.

Well, it sounds like I can dovetail into something else

I'm corresponding with Joe of Vinci cams. He is going to build the camshaft for my motor. He asked today if I was replacing the torque converter or leaving it stock.

Since I need to pull the transfer to fix this d)(#%! wobblin' pump part, I'd be half way there to the converter swap out...hmmm...

I think the answer, Don, is "it depends".  I've heard of trucks never having an issue with "pump rub", and some failing sub 100K miles.

To remedy the situation, you have to drop and split the case, then replace the oil pump inside. Let me dig up some pics from when I did mine and get them attached here... maybe I'll start a thread.
This sounds painful!

OK we have a CC (Christmas Cause)

I prayed over this and sent some texts around but pretty much ended up with a dry hole.

Then I called Duane this morning and learned about this:

His youngest daughter who is in college to become a nurse took up a rather unusual habit, visiting the VA office. SHe told her dad that she couldn't stand looking at what she calls all the "Campus Freaks" walking around and the only normal place she could find to study was at the VA office!!!!!!!

It's quiet there and she can use printers for her assignments and again, according to her, the place is filled with "Normal people" Like her dad.

Well one thing led to another and one day they posted an opening for a receptionist there. She applied and was hired. So now she works there when not attending classes at the university.

Without any help from her family and without their knowledge she started up a charity to benefit veterans. She calls it, "Serving Those Who Served Us." Her and some others who have come in to help seek out clothing, food, stuff from donations which she and the kids turn right around and get to the veterans they know and meet them at their point of need.

Is this killer or what!!!!!!??????? So the local Archdiocese is now interested in blowing this up into a bigger thing. Upon hearing about this, like 1 hour ago, I knew in my heart and head, that this is where we sow into this year.

So if you're gonna get involved, dig in and get involved. I will go see her tomorrow and see how we can help. Maybe get some pics. If I can, I'll volunteer for all of us and do some of the foot work as well.

Who's in?

I've got 3 of those t cases remanned with the pump saver kits sitting over in the Florence warehouse if you wind up yarding that one. I don't have slip yoke eliminator kits, but I do have the stockers available.
I don't understand what I'm dealing with here. Have no knowledge of this T-Case rub issue. What am I look ing for to access?

Do all of them eventually fail?

At about which point?

Previous owner stated that almost all of the miles on this truck were long drive highway miles, would that affect T-Case were of this nature one way or the other?

I'd leave the brakes alone.  Like others said,  those factory ones go forever.  The rear ones will usually go first on those.
I can confirm that. The previous owner replaced the rear brakes already.

Does it NEED front brakes?  My 2001 had 125,000 and brakes were close to 50%
They look to be around 50% or so. But the rotors were pretty scaly with rust, and I question the integrity of the caliper O rings and possible pitting behind the pistons.

I think for safety's sake, I may just change out the wearable items

But since the prior owner told me he did not change the front brakes, I will. So in preparation for all that, I pressure washed the front suspension best I could to get ready. I did find some dirt built up behind the fender well liner, so I cleaned all that up. I'll apply undercoating to that area prior to reassembly just to be sure

Ya know, take a look at the space either side fwd and aft of the wheel well. You could easily hang an aux something there, or cur a access door to access from inside. Then there's hanging stuff on the outside, like a propane tank to free up space inside. Add a carrier for a couple 5 gal cans. Could be fuel or water, who knows. Get a reverse osmosis filter and a hose, then simply pump right from the lake and enjoy. I'd add an awning aft and maybe to one side. You could add a fold up shelf to the outside somewhere to use as a wash basin or utility table. Add a couple all weather 300 watt solar panels to the roof, and skip bat numba two, save more space. If you get ambitious you could hack into one side and create a fold up shelf that hinges on the bottom and is held horizontally with cables, Sew up a rubberized tent to connect and bang, just like that you'd get a free room that packs up ricky tick.

JR and Ken modified campers on here so far. Way back when i modded a slide in like yours which was marine plywood base construction. Yea, you could gut and reconfigure, pretty much the sky is the limit. I'd say to set it in a strong jig to keep it where it is while you break things down if you are going after structure. Then reinforce the snot out of it before proceeding. Also be keen to look for rot which is common in those.

JR, thanks again!

I found the owner and talked to him

What a gentleman! And what a truck! He was able to tell me the history of it. He owned it since 2006 and only used it for long highway trips, never as a daily driver. I know the service record somewhat now, and what it needs. I was right when I suspected the manifold had been removed. He said the mani cracked and he replaced it himself. I thought the alternator looked newer-check! He had replaced it along with the AC compressor, the rear brakes and had the transmission serviced. He had difficulty removing the front calipers, so I'm going to address that (today??)

Oh and I have procured a set of "243" casting LS GM heads which are now headed my way. Its coming together!
