What did you do to your 1st gen truck today?

I wanted to start a thread for everyone to discuss what they may have done to their truck on a daily basis. Rather than create a new thread for each and every thing, perhaps this will be a good one to discuss things.

Today I had to go out and buy some cheap mud flaps. My aluminum diamond plate running boards were stolen a few days ago, and I want to try to deflect some road debris as I ponder where I may find some more, and if I can afford them. I screwed the cheapie flaps in to the front fender wells and hope they do a decent job, especially on gravel roads.

Verified that the recently machined pressure and reaction plates will center the forward & intermediate clutch-pacs on their associated hubs (auto trans thing). Will put it all back together as soon as I figure out what I'm gonna do with the overdrive planet.

did a little more pump tweaking, changed some wires around so the power windows work with the key in acc too, not just on.

found that both end joints in my 1 year old steering center link are toasted. time to rain hellfire down on autozone.

Changed the oil, oil filter and fuel filter... Filled up the truck with 10.09 gallons of diesel from Fred Meyers and checked my milage... 20.89mpg not too bad for a 1990 W350.
