Default What did you do to YOUR truck today?

Hopefully there isn't already one of these. This is specifically for the '87-'96 trucks on this board. So go ahead, instead of starting a new thread for something small, why not post up what you guys have done to your truck today in this thread!

I'll start, since my tach has been broken since I bought my truck, I finally went to the junkyard and pulled all the gauges out of a '91 and '87 save the speedometer, to swap to mine. I have a working tach now! Sadly it didn't fix the gas gauge, but hey, one outta 2 ain't that bad. I'm taking back the rest later

Put a Mark8 Electric fan on my truck and swapped door windows for windows with awesome darker tint. Oh, and found a big **** bubble in my back right tire.

-Changed my smog pump
-Changed my bracket for my A/C and power steering pump -The guy who rebuilt the motor rigged a 4.9L bracket to my 5.0L motor and it has been eating belts since.
-Cleaned my throttle body, ICV, and EGR valve
-Changed my TPS
-Changed my o2 sensor
-Went to junkyard and got a fan shroud and air intake hose to replace the old busted ones on my truck
-Pulled off all the old A/C stuff and will be installing a new system this weekend.

Also found that my power steering pump was leaking around the shaft and will have to replace it also.

Tore off all the old exhaust components, put on headers that I grabbed of the guy I bought my engine off of, welded 1/4 my exhaust together. 3 inch tubing with not cats! Heck ya.
