What do you need to do to your rig but haven'y gotten around to it yet.

I think there are probably more things we need to do to are rigs than we actually seem to get done.
I need to fix my front diff cover drip, the charcoal can that I busted at Carnegie, wire up my lights, replace the shocks, and rebuild the front susupension. Probably more but that's it for now.

You do know that you will get hit by a rock 2 days after you put in the new windshield. Never fails.

It's time for tires! (although these haven't achieved Scott's 'racing slick' status ... yet)
Also need to replace the tail light I smashed on Winch Hill1 - thinking of replacing them with round LEDs. ???

I've got the Kilby evap relocator. I'm curious why you would remove that and install the skid?

Just got back from an oil change at the Chrysler Dealership. My rig has 47,000 miles on it and they are claiming that my power steering fluid and brake fluid is dirty. They want $800 to change it out. No fucking way would I pay for a service that can be done in the garage. Typical dealer trying to rip people off. Just a way for them to cancel your warranty because they can now claim that my power steering pump went out as a result of not changing my oil when they recommended me to do so. I call it a scam. Okay sorry this should be on the vent thread as well, but to stay on topic I need to add this to my (what I need to do but haven't got around to it yet).

I hate when they do that crap. They are all just looking to make a$$ (a lot of $$$$$$$$$$). Just keep your recipes and write it in your service record report in your owners manual and you should be OK.

If it isn't in your owners manual maintenance schedule then it cannot be held against you.
