Truck doesn't handle any better with the new washer reservoir. 😐😟

I took a bolt out from under the go pedal and it scoots better because I can press it down further. Still guberned to 2100 so top speed is the same.
How she do with the new bushings in the back end?

Any difference?

The only truck I've ever had parts fall off of was a '79 Dodge.

I had to stop and pick up my tailgate once. And another time it's battery tray came loose and the battery hit the radiator fan.
Had that problem on a '72 GMC once

Had starters fall off, carburetors come apart...

4" suspension lift did all that. Never underestimate vibration

He didn't want it to fall off like the old one.
Serious answer is it didn't have one when I bought it. It was a foot pump but no reservoir and clogged lines. Now it's an OEM electric off a later LTL. Like a 92 or something. I put a button on the dash under my work lights/camera toggle. I didn't want to mess with the perfectly functional wiper knob for now.

The 1" impact is for suspension bolts and lug nuts and anything else I need it for.

Does having two different colors of lighting not screw with your eyes?

I think it adds a nice effect to your picture but I had to put all "daylight" (5500k) bulbs in my shop. It was messing with my eyes.
Not with the overhead one being functionally useless with the halogens on. It looks brighter in photos than it really is.

Thought I'd go the extra mile here for a little bit and clean up some hardware. You'll notice the count is short. I'm putting them on as they get finished. Without a large, fast refilling compressor it's slow going.
