Discussion Starter #1
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.

changes the oil and all the filters, greased the front end and all the u joints. where did you have your truck parked that they felt safe enough to unbolt your running baords?

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.

what did you have to do exactly to get them to work on ACC??
i used a good fuse tap and took power off the cigarette ligter fuse slot and ran it to the window slot. There is a really good fuse tap availible, it plugs into the fuse slot and has two slots built in, one for the existing circuit and one for the new accessory. it then has a 4 or 5 inch pigtail you can attach to whatever you like. I believe i got mine from napa.

the windows have a 40 amp circuit breaker in place of the standard blade fuse, but i wouldnt worry about overloading the circuit. I test ran the windows with a 20 amp fuse and it had no problems, so as long as your not running your windows up and down with a massive inverter plugged into your lighter socket, youll be fine.

drove around town for a bit and went on the highway, noticed that at a higher RPM before it shifted into O/D it smokes black like crazy
