    I'm sure there is, we just have a bunch of lurkers that don't comment. Many times members think their builds don't get looked at. We oughta change that some how.

    I've been following along intently, I just have a bad habit of reading through and not commenting. Guess I should post after your updates so you know I've been here.

    Good progress so far. I love your truck :drool:

    I'd love to have reps and attaboys here. It's true, many many lurkers on this thread. If you just watch views, you'll know there is lots of interest.

    hmm, gonna need to work on and see about that reputation app. It really works good when used right, but it goes bad when 1 member gets pissed off and then gives bad rep, or someone thinking they are being funny and give a negative. Or the real idiot which I've seen happen on another forum, the guys gives the OP a negative and says, I hate that color, or, I like LSD up front better than a luncbox locker and then gives negative. Those are the bugs that can jack with the reputation system. I'd rather just have a positive only system. If you thinks its a positive statement or helpful, give the guy a cookie, if you don't like, then you have to keep your mouth (keyboard)shut.

    In the meantime, we do have thread voting, and this one deserves 5 stars for sure.

    Your name request from SP6.2 to Stumpuller6.5 is done too. So now I've know you as Stumpuller454, to Stumppuller6.2 now 6.5, so when the big swap happens, you gonna be StumpullerCummins? or 6BT? or.....?? :rofl:

    I follow but dont always comment. If I'm eating & surfing at the same time I dont post at all even if I want to, then click new posts later and forget. Or if I got a screwed up ear like now I dont like to type, just look.

    Just don't get a Toyota. I don't think Stumpuller2.2 will make much sense. Might have to rename you completely to Weedpuller2.2 if you do that.

    Today I got the rear sway bar bushings and links done, tried once again on the brake line and no show, so moved on to doing the water pump, that has turned into quite the tear down, what I thought was the pump leaking is actually the front cover, this is as far as I got today before I lost motivation, lol.

    I have to pull the intake to get at the injection pump mounting bolts so i can pull that front cover, which in the end is best because i can do the front seal. cause this engine is dirty as hell. why the hell can`t people clean under the hood once a year for fWONK sakes?

    :lol:

    I have turbo envy :naughty:

    You're gonna have to find some heavy duty cleaner to get 6.2 grime off. I cleaned and cleaned under the hood of my truck and finally said fuggit. I did get the motor parts pretty clean with Purple Power cleaner(or something like that) from Carquest. :buffer:

    I find Spray Nine an extremely good degreaser for engine oil and coolant. We use it to clean industrial engines at work, because its non flammable.

    I didn`t think the water pump would be engineered this way, but everything I took off just revealed how much more had to come off as well! :eek:
