Also just picked up a Covercraft (WeatherSheild HD) custom truck cover (Thanks Mike!) through Auto Geek with a 15% welcome discount.
    Installed the rear rotors a week ago (Just installed front rotors on Sunday. Photos to follow)

    I just did brakes all around with new powder coated Power Stop calipers (one of my rears was locked), new Stifflers lines front and rear and new Rotorpros up front (rear RPs were still good). Also bought a set of high flow cats/mid pipes from LR and new headlights but haven't had a chance to install them yet. My current aftermarket cats plugged then blew out about 5 years ago, not a fan of the exhaust smell or sound (kind of raspy instead of deep) so looking forward to getting it done.

    today....I'm thinking about servicing the rear caliper's on my truck.


    the rear/passenger side caliper has gotten sticky a few times.....I got the last of the parts delivered last night....now I just gotta wait on my coffee to motivate me...

    I kinda hoped I'd have the time to have the calipers powder coated, but the local shop said the quickest they could do it is 4 days and that's too long to wait....so I'll just clean them up and spray bomb them as-cast grey....


    anyone rebuilt their own calipers vs/ replace them? the square o-ring and piston seal kit is literally only 6 dollars.

    Sorry didn't catch this until just now, the center caps are sheet vinyl, and I used a razor blade to cut the bar and shield out. Make sure you clean first. I used alcohol to clean. And make sure you have enough to do it twice cause I messed up on two of them and had to start over.

    You either have to make your own hard line or buy an OE ford line, they are still available. I personally would get the OE ford lines, you may as well replace both while you are at it.

    I don't know why Ford didn't make just the rubber part serviceable.....I'm prolly just going to order a set form Stifflers and go with stainless lines + stainless braided lines

    Yup that's what I got on mine.

    Funny we are on the subject of brake lines. I have an 04 f250 that I use as a beater for home depot trips and what not. So it never gets used lol. Well my dd jeep needs some work done, went to start the 250 up and dead battery. Jumped it and went to move it over to my house from where it's stored. Damn brakes went to the floor! Look underneath and fluid in the middle. So said f it, it's too damn cold to mess with it. Meanwhile I scoured the interwebs looking for the line to no avail. This weekend was nice so I drove the truck over to my house. Luckily it wasn't far, cause that was fun with no brakes. Oh actually I had a flat rear tire also so that helped slow it down lol. Had to make my own line which wasn't too bad. But damn that truck is long.


    So still don't have my Harley truck. Now I'm going to start messing with the f250 lol. I installed 08 mirrors since I like them better. Just ordered some tinted cab lights. Going to do some other maintenance things to it while I'm at it. I'm actually excited to be wrenching on something and buying stuff. Been too long since I've had my truck here and have actually thought about selling it. So I'm hoping this will fill the void till the day I do get it back.

    anyone have the Ford part numbers handy? the only one's I can find are coming up with discontinued and the Dealer quoted me 67.49/each....at that price I'd rather go aftermarket. The counterman at the dealer didn't want to give me part #'s over the phone


    the part #'s I did find were
    XL1Z-2A442-AB (Left Side/Drivers)
    XL1Z-2A442-AA (Right side / Passenger)


    edit - F' it....Just got off the phone with a cool guy at Stifflers and have a set headed my way
