What have you done to your 6.5 today?

Well today I took went and got my batteries tested again. Had them tested where they actually drain and recharge it... needless to say I bought 2 new batteries. That and It would not start a few weeks ago with the radio on for about 15 min.

Also found out that my 8th digit of my vin is F.

I didn't do anything to my truck today, well, other than throwing away some drink cups and trash I've left in it. I've been slacking lately, a year ago I'd never have left ANYTHING like that in it. I also need to have a tire fixed so my spare can go back inside (Ive got one Grey wheel and 3 black ones on it right now. Picked up a nail the other day), change the oil, vacuum it out, wipe the interior, wash the outside, and wipe the wheels. Lots of work, but I like to keep my truck looking nice. I'm just so busy & broke lately. I know there are other things I need to do but those are the main things. I spent all day Friday taking out the radiator and cleaning it and the rest of the "coolers". The AC works a little better now so I'm sure i will run cooler in the heat with the AC and my trailer. Wont know until it gets to the mid 90's again later this week.

I was sanding my new "power dome" hood for hours yesterday. It's going to be done really soon, which is nice, because it takes up a lot of room when it's off the truck. I also sat in the truck for a few minutes and imagined driving it when it's all done.

Mine's a 6.2, can I get in on this?

Today I've done nothing; haven't been home and been driving the company vehicle.

Yesterday I pulled the trans pan to see how bad my transmission problem might be by whats at the bottom of the pan. Verdict? Not much there. Hoping the fix will be simple and cheap(ish, it's a transmission after all).

Actually, you can; you have to go to the advanced editor to do it. I did it recently in my TH400 thread (it used to say TH350) when I figured out I had a different (better?) trans than I thought.
