Put on a new left rear hub then gave the old girl a bath. hoping this will finally stop the wheel seal leak problem.

Filled her up with Chevron diesel and contemplated replacing the front bumper or putting on a lift pump. Hard choice when your work is right around the corner from a diesel performance supplier....

Replace front Drivers Brake line - was rubbing against my inner wheel...my most excellent Diesel Mechanic added a reinforced rubber hose slit down its long side and tie wrapped on to the area it rubs (added protction), going to do the pass side this week.

Also replaced the original WIF which finally shat the bed and was leaking constantly.
I guess they simply wear out with the plastic becoming brittle over the past 14 yrs.

Still the best damned behicle I ever owned....hands down.

Done a lot in the last couple months. but aside from some uneccesary stuf that I did because of an annual safety including brakes line replacement, routing, bleeding multiple times with about a gallon of fluid to kind of flush it and other things. Then got an air bag code after passing the safety so replaced the front sensor on the bumper.

I just hit a 1/4 million K on the odometer(id be well over 400k if I wasn't driving other vehicle more often the last 5-6 years) so I decided id bleed the Brakes again, do an ABS bleed a couple-few times because I now own the tool that lets me do it(didtn fix an issue where Im almost at a stop and the abs seems to kick in for a split second, maybe hubs is my next guess?!?), then changed out the transynd with fresh stuff and a new Allison spin on filter magnet and plug gasket. Then decided Id change the transfer case fluid out quick too. Did an oil change recently but I may just do another one with a flush first just cause since she just turned 250k and I have a couple pails of Rotella. Plan on doing the injector cleaning pricess with liquimoly diesel purge since the dealer stuff is different and not in stock locally now too.(thoughts?) Weird that the trans is running warmer now after the fresh fluid though....and if the brakes aren't the abs issue, then my next guess is a hub even though there is no play and no code(and I did replace a hub sensor wire because I noticed some minor rubbing on it but nothing changed then either). I its not hubs then dare I say torque converter? Am I on the right track Or am I just scaring myself?
