Making some good headway, hopefully ill be done by friday but we will see haha.
main goal today was finish up the coolant hoses from offroad gorilla, replace the clutch fan pulley (noisey), install clutch fan and shroud. i did all that and FINALLY the truck is very close to me at least being happy with how its operating. didnt get a chance to take it out i started on the suspension stuff.
this is the top radiator hose to coolant tank.
Removing the stock electric fan for the clutch fan and shroud.
broken *** pulley ive been waiting on forever..
hole it goes in.
upper oil cooler hose
heater hose on fire wall and i actually didnt see exactly where it finished i am assuming the coolant tank but im not sure lol.
lower left oil cooler and lower right oil cooler- i originally wasnt all to excited about the hose clamps it came with but after messing with these pinch clamps i am happy to have something that will be easier to remove in the future.
fan shroud and portion on the left i cut or the clutch fan itself would contact. after this photo i cut more on the lines of the shroud. i think i went a little too far but no more contacting.
also might put the steering fluid tank back to the frontier OEM location, its got a couple minor contacting issues around. given my recent contacting issues im trying to keep everything away from everything on a more diligent level.
i burped it for a while and seems to be happy overall, still need to drive it other than down the driveway and back. im just happy its all quiet for the most part. as quiet as a VK stuffed into the frontier can get haha.
i was kinda excited to dive into the upper and lower control arm swap, i figured since i anti seized everything it would all pop off.
lol wrong, so far i have a pretty mangled lower ball joint bolt off along with the lower shock bolt which did come off ok. im not looking as forward to the rest of it as i originally intended.
