Changed the oil and filter last night. Will be changing the belts tonight and changing out hoses tomorrow night.
One step at a time......

Well over the weekend I built a billet aluminum cabinet to hide my spare tire. No pictures yet until finished though. Thinking about getting it anodized in what else but orange!

Replaced my 2 House/ Auxiliary batteries with 2 Crown True Deep Cycle 12v batteries. Group 27, 115 amp hours each. If I had the Height in my battery box, I'd be using 6 volt golf cart batteries in series, as they are even burlier deep cycle batteries.

Not Cheap at 105$ each before tax, but they are true deep cycle 12 volt batteries.

Most batteries which say deep cycle/rv/marine are dual purpose batteries. Wally world everstarts dual purpose batts could be had for 82$ per battery in my area. Better than a starting battery for deep cycle use but 8 to 12 pounds lighter than the Deep Cycle Crowns of equal size.

My engine starting battery is almost 5 years old now and is just about done too. But the New Deep cycles together have about twice the required CCA to start my engine.

Took my 94 van in last Friday to the shop that put the transmission in. They sent me a coupon for an oil change and a "72-point" inspection.

Came back that I needed a new drag link and upper ball joints. That explains the loose steering feeling I've been having lately. Ball joints? Crap..I had new ones put in 6 years ago. I'll check them myself when I put the drag link in this weekend. Went with Moog brand.

Just turned over 186,000 miles. All that steering stuff under there is original!
