Yesterday I spent a bit of time going over everything, took off my rattly *** resonator heat shields, fixed my rear diff breather that had broken off the fitting in the axle housing, fixed a leaky power steering line, recharged the AC system (as best as you can when its just above freezing I guess..) and then I took my spare off and got a new valve stem and the beads re seated, it was only 10 bucks I don't know why I put it off for this long.
Then today I took 'er out on what I'm going to call it's inaugural run on a drive to Tofino this morning. Already had to put the tires to their snow rated test on Sutton Pass, I didnt even need to put it in 4wheel. Got about 1400 Kilometers on it now. I will change the oil again at 2000 and then after 3000 more k I'll throw synthetic into it, hoping that will shut up my lifters.
