    Capitalized on the warm Chicago weather: washed the truck with Adam's detail spray (amazing) and installed the KHC jack handle holder. Much better than my previous setup.

    Well under the truck several hours this afternoon, taking advantage of this unusual spring February weather.

    Removed skid plates. To clean because the last oil change spilled it everywhere, damn kids at the dealership. Wow, I bent the shit out of the Heftyworks STEEL transmission skid plate. I am sure I can blame that one on Matomi in Baja. Transfer skid too but was able to pound that one back. Got the Rogue belly skid too and busted a bolt in the nut, geez.

    Saw that I managed to get the rear cross member, nice!

    I knew when I was down there that my brake line was loose and picked up the only clip in the USA at the Ford dealership in Yuma (its that white one way up there in the picture). Well I decided to get it in there as I didn't want to rely on the zip tie fixes. I am glad that I got 4 regular clips at my local dealership too as every single one was broken except for one. Damn shop that did the frame swap, reused the clips and put them in the wrong spot and missed one under the frame completely. If anyone has to go through a frame swap, demand that they replace all the clips with new as the old just don't hold as well and if they are broken, guess a shop doesn't give a shit.

    Replaced all clips, feel better now that I won't lose brakes one day when off-roading now. A couple were a pain to get to.

    Did a complete service:

    1. Oil/filter change
    2. Transmission fluid and filter change
    3. Spark plug change
    4. Coolant flush
    5. Differential fluids replace
    6. New tires
    7. Alignment
    8. Engine air filter

    38.5k on the clock. Yes, pretty premature for a few items, but i want to keep it for a while.

    Got a little bored and decided to make a gauge cluster for the gauges I'm ordering, giving this a try first, if this don't work then I'll go the a pillar route, just trying to stay away from airbag locations,

    Have two braces for it, just not in picture, so far pretty solid, but things can change and scrap it.
