Dually work before Christmas was my fun. Had to replace the water pump this last weekend. I always hate that job because of all the crap you gotta take off just to get to the water pump on a 91 big block. It took me a few hours but the job was successful :)

I also put in some new LED tails on her :)

I hate changing a water pump. Depending on the miles on the vehicle, I will sometimes go ahead and replace the timing gear and chain.

Yeah it’s not fun LOL this truck only has 70k miles on it so it really didn’t need much else. I did go ahead and put a new lower hose on and new belts on while I was at it.

More LEDs added the last few days. This time to the rear dually fender lights and the rear license plate lights. It's supposed to be warmer this weekend so I'll be able to finally hit another door with getting new seals, wing window and door internals installed. Then I'll just have the rear doors to attack after that as weather allows...

Pics of LEDs....

Finally finished up the last door over hte weekend. Now all four doors have fresh felts, rubbers, window motors, exterior door handles, and refreshed door panels.

Next up is headliner and then window tint. After that's complete I'm turning my attention to the exterior with a goal of getting new paint on her by the Spring

That's the hope!! I haven't had a chance to take it out for a spin just yet because right after I took this pic the skies opened up and I didn't feel like getting drenched while getting grease in all the joints LOL I plan on doing that tonight and taking her out. Then do the same on Saturday after the ball joints but I expect it to be like a completely different truck :)
