You probably unplugged it back when you were going to do it right and drop the tank.

Been no-opped since I had it no issue there.

Anyway  :rolleyes: I cut the hole, disconnected the wires and got her open. Hole could have a been a little bigger, but it worked (8x8).

Parts were falling off and the pump hose had rotted away. With the condition, the R&R is not worth the time.

Drained another 5-6 gallons of something from the tank using the pump I got for the boat, worked great!

Well TRN dose not like locking hubs because he doesn't like getting red dirt on his loafers or even getting out of his truck when there is a water puddle in the driveway.

So after looking at the pump assembly and the tank after draining I decided to just replace both. The rust and gunk was nasty, so dropping it anyway now  :facepalm:

Summit had pumps for $87 ($67 for the 40 gal?) and a dorman 31 gal tank was $107. It was $122 but when I checked to see if the tank was baffled, it showed a diff tank. So I called to change the order and they matched Amazon and gave me free shipping (normally $10 oversize).

All in stock in Reno so will have tomorrow, but another scout event this weekend so will tackle on Monday.

Alright. Nice fun there. Stop making fun of my ostrich loafers.

Wait until I put the grizzly locker in the LB7. It?s still a real truck.

I like ostrich, for my boots. Heck, swelling is down enough I may just get a pair!

Not sure of my rear yet for the LBZ, but the front is getting a truetrac.

Now I have to up the price on this, just dropped another few hundred into it.
