The never ending list of "to be fixed"

Reverses shackels:
The front hangers are cracked right across to the point that a hard hit would break them causing the leaf spring to fall.

Fix - replace with a new kit or have the front custom welded up

Loud engine knock:
This could be the lifters or rockers worn out

fix - replace the lifter and if the rockers are aluminum then replace those as well

Soft brakes:
Have a hard time locking up the tires and I notice that on a hill or pulling someone the front brakes do not lock up.

fix- the only thing left to replace is the proportioning valve

Steering box:
Steering box bolts keep coming loose. Missing one bolt from the last trip.

fix - I have put on the steering box brace but still does not fix the problem. I have seen a heay
duty brace that replaces the stock brace

Rear diff:
Leaking from both seals. The rear end has been replaced to fix the problem before

fix - replace both seals -- short term gix-- replace the rear with an 8.8 Ford or and Dana 44
both options very expensive!!

Front locking hub:
Blown Warn hub because the bolts keep coming loose.

Fix - Replace the bolts with studs and buy a new hub

Front offraod light:
Missing

fix Re-weld that mount and replace the housing and light

CD stereo Deck:
not working

fix- I have it in for warranty but they are charging me to fix it -- http://www.funinbc.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=1927

Transfer case:
When going down hill in 4x4 the transfer case pops out into neutral and send you flying down the hill

Fix- keep hand on the transfer case and hold it forward, bungy cord, or rebuilding the case.

Front and rear bumper:
The manufacturer did a shitty job on the powder coating and has been peeling since day one.

Fix- I have to take the bumpers off, sandblast them and take them back so he can re-do it
the problem is I have to drop the gas tank to get the rear bumper off. PITA

The list is longer but that is what is on the immediate "to do list"

"Someone stop me spending money on this thing!!"


I doubt I am the only one with a list

saw your truck down at the shop today, they say its running well now at least -- man is your shackle reversal buggared, he showed me how you might weld a plate between the two spring hangars.. that would be pretty tough.

anyways, I was down there picking up my axle & a couple new springs for the back... it was about time, so I pulled the axle in my garage, cleaned everything up and had the pinion bearing and axle seals done at the shop, picked the axle up today and just got home now(2am), all done, 'cept I have to drive it down to the shop(in front wheel drive) tomorrow morning to get the spring perches welded on n' pinion angle right.. . .

I could go on, but I think I'm just frustrating myself more. sleep now. [:p]
