Stole idea from PBB. (FNL and SNL)

Well im staying home this long weekend and wrenching. Been working 12 hour days the last few months and have not had time to do some projects.

I have to replace a serpentine belt on my daughters car for a 1” shorter one. Because Dad put in a big stereo with two amps and then a 220 amp alternator that has a smaller pull. The smaller pulley lets the tensioner relax too much and bounce around making a purring sound. Nothing like creating more work for myself, I have to pull the wheel off the car and fender liner just to get to the tensioner bolt. Sum bitches!!!

Second project is adding a Mopar severe duty fuel filter to the trusty Megacab. She is on 06 and only has one filter and could use to keep my injectors from having issues.

Third one is my X3. I want to pull the trailing arms off and add the S3 style weld on gusset kit(sorry Dustin ill cut my own out since shipping to AZ is a lot for some flat plate). Then replace trailing arm pivot bushing, wheel bearings and rear axle shafts just because they have seen 5000 miles of MEGA abuse not because they are showing any signs of wear. Also i have to pull off my exhaust and sell it to a buddy and build myself another one.

Last one is trim some palm trees and bolt my metal framed gazebo down before the monsoon season relocates it to the neighbors yard.


What are you losers doing if you are not out enjoying the trails????

Alignment then swapped the sway bar links and a tire rotation on the Dodge 5.9 after work. Fuel filter, air filter clean, finding the voltage drop to the trailer brakes, swap shackle straps for some 1/4" BIG boys and fresh water filler hose replacement tomorrow. X3- lost another wheel bearing. Probably do both. Going to check ball joints and bushings. Then the house roof leak. All in time. Happy Birthday America!!!! We earned it.

Escrow just closed on Tuesday so were now moving. Excited for the new house but had to cancel our Walker River Resort trip. Cant take any additional time off work due too all migrations of new clients, but excited about the new house and I need to break in the neighbors with the X3, loud music that 'some - one hates' on here (not gonna mention any names - mega) maybe some illegal fireworks and a pool party

Had to work until three, My old ride is sold on Monday so I am in between rides and now camping in eastern Utah so we are going to tour Canyonlands and Dead horse point this weekend and hoping my new ride ships soon as touring in a dually is not too exciting but beats doing yard work!

Today did misc Yard work, spread 12 yards gravel on rv pad- needed 20 so that’s not done, moved a sprinkler head, fixed chainsaw I trashed cutting railroad ties for border on rv parking, prepped general to go fishing north of Boise tomorrow and trail ride for the day, assembled 10x12 shade gazebo for back patio so wife will quit bitching at me there’s no shade, and drinking of course

Friday - going north into mountains where it’s cooler for the day

Sat / sun groom yard back into new rv parking and reinstall strips of sod I trashed with excavator, build (3) planter boxes for new garden


I bought new house 2 months ago to live in for a year while I build new house and shop so I have been slammed with upgrading everything it seems on this little shit hole
