    Messing around with the intake horn. Kinda like how the distressed Cummins lettering came out

    The new front seal tool came in yesterday. Had a free minute and finally got the new front crank seal in. That's been a something I've kinda been dreading doing. Fingers crossed it seals properly. I did use the crank sleeve because the crank did have a slight grove in it. Put the front cover on. Just need to torque the bolts down.

    With the weather kinda cooperating and being in the high 50s after dinner I decided to do a little more work

    My conscious, or whatever you want to call it got the better of me and ordered a rear main seal kit. Not a 100 percent sure if it is actually leaking but I know doing it now will save a lot of headaches later.

    As like everything with this truck I'm doing more than I intended.

    Didn't plan on pulling the brake booster or hvac but here we are

    Had enough time today to pull the transfer case. Hopefully will have enough time to pull the trans tomorrow, if not definitely Saturday

    Guess it's a good thing I decided to change the rear main seal

    New seal installed

    And a splash of color on the trans

    Definitely a good call on the rear main seal.

    Might have missed it in the thread but what trans is in that?
