Nope, changed the front diff oil the transfer case fluid. Now stuck at the rear diff, the bolts are too rusty can't fit a socket on then Off to buy bolt extractor sockets. Got a new cover too. You happen to know the size of those differential cover bolts on that limited slip 8.5 inch GM 10 bolt? Need to buy new bolts. Going to drain the antifreeze too. But the oil is changed, the trans and filter, the third door handle
fixed. The belt is changed, the thermostat is changed (leaking), the air filter and the battery. Needs a idler arm, brake fluid change, maybe brakes (we'll see) diff cover and bolts, rear fluid. Then alignment. Got one new tire because one tire is nearly new, two others are pretty equally worn and one is shot. Got the same brand and tread tire to match the other three good ones. Luckily the one was almost new also. Got two rear shocks
, one is seeping. Going to have to soak them with penetrating oil to get them loose. Quite the project, but the 4.3 and trans seem to be in really good shape, the 4 wd works, all the lights work even the dash lights. It's definitely worth $1000, none of the rust seems fatal, just scale. Good scrape and a spray bottle of 30 weight oil will do wonders ha ha. Liberal use of truck bed liner on bottom third of the body, bumpers, bed, etc. Actually looks better than way than the original color. Pretty good first truck for 17 year old. Only 128,000 miles.
