Changed the oil, rotated the tires, and figured out what the roaring noise I've been hearing for a bit was. Driver's side front hub assembly bearings are GONE!. New one is on order.
Now if I could just track down that pesky metallic rattle noise coming from the front somewhere.

Replaced both batteries...yuck. Added a soft trifold tonneau cover. Took out the tool box. Now I move on to fixing the couple dents and dings.

I stared at her. Again. For the eleventh day in a row we are socked in with clouds and yet another looming thunderstorm and under flash flood watch. So, my project of adding a Mopar badge to my grille is on hold. Again. This is such a basic, straight forward mod but it is turning into a battle with Mother Nature as to when I will ever get it accomplished.

Default Today is yesterday's tomorrow.

I fixed my blend door for free. I had been doing some research on the issue and decided to fix it with a wire hanger. Dropped the three screws out of the fan, reached up and wedged the door back against the firewall side, then folded an entire hanger in three sections and shoved it into the hole. The only warning I have on this is to ensure then hanger is wedged to the left some so it does not fall out. I tried to get the hanger out and could not budge it. I am 99% sure it will not move. Here's a short video I did on it. The only change to the video is to note that I removed the cut hanger and used a full hanger.

As a result, I now have full air flow and no more rattle. I am satisfied, even if the air is stuck on recycle. That's not a problem for me.

Installed an AMP Research bed step. So far, pretty happy with it; a trip coming up where I'll be in and out of the bed several times a day, hoping it works out well.

Complete detail. Spent 6 hours on the paint, really happy with the results. Did the windows inside and out and then applied rain x to the outside. Put vent visors on and changed the crappy stock wiper blades (already smearing after 10,000 miles and 7 months) with some rain X latitudes. Cleaned the rims and exhaust tips. Treated the leather and dash/plastic pieces. I even armor all'd the inside of the wheel wells. I used to do this on my 4 wheelers/sideXsides and mud wouldn't stick to them. I was offroading a little bit about a month ago and they were still stained from then, hopefully this will help.

i fixed my ramcharger today. the EGR Transducer took a dump on the way home last night. kind of redneck repaired it using old egr parts off of my 91. the parts did the same job but looked a bit different.

Scotchgaurded the upholstry and updated my bed setup for mounting 2 regular bikes and a tandem. Used the bed step I installed yesterday about 30 times; really glad it's there.
