Spent the morning cleaning my frame innards. What a f'ing hassle. DO NOT let it dry (which mine was, at least on the outside...Under still wet and a future disaster)

So steep hill, powerful hose, and flush it out

Shipped the 40 inch E Series bar that I picked up used here on the forum back to Rigid for a small overhaul. Very easy process with their warranty department. Had slight condensation in the driver side corner, broke a bolt when tightening to the tab, the shell looked kind of shabby. Amazingly it is not costing me a dime except shipping cost, fantastic customer service.
Rigid has definitely great customer service, never had any issues with them. Should be like that with every company if there is real issues.

Here it is, a dinosaur mod in the Raptor world. Easy to install, really good quality. I ended up using exacto knife to cut the rubber mat alongside the edges of the tool box so that I can take the mat out to clean.

Changed engine oil and filter. Oil drain plug almost completely stripped, hanging on by a few molecules of metal. Fuck. Oil drain plug added to neverending list. Replaced air filter and cleaned MAF. Drained, cleaned and refilled stock P/S reservoir, backflushed little metal screen filter inside it with gas through the return line nipple. Replaced all of the 3 remaining T40 screws and one Tinnerman nut holding the skidplate oil filter drain access plate and the one that was missing. Luckily threats and cursing got the last little bastard out that was almost stripped into a circle before I had to resort to vicegrips and/or violence.

Nice I have been looking into getting that, how much was it and where did you find it. I can only find plastic storage.

go to www.amazon.com it was $243.35 shipped, i have a sub so they make two versions. Not a bad price for the box that built like a tank. Two locks, two sets of keys, bolts into seat mounts....
