Unless your in my area and that same part is $25 at Autozone.

For any ACTIVE Member in need of a OBD][ reader just PM me for some information. :roll: Rockaholic just as an FYI... I finally changed over even though the need never arised for yourself. :wink: 8)

Eventually I will have some pics of my install of the SG][ for those interested. I just need to finalize the installation since right now it is held in by UNYX business cards till I do finish.

Haven't posted here in a bit...

But a good cheap tool that will save you a bunch of time is a Gear oil pump. It works great for getting your gear oil into your rear diff easily..

I've looked at those I always wondered... Do you need one for each type of lubricant? i.e.: one for transmission fluid, one for differencial and one for transfer case (IIRC same fluid ,dif/trans, for Gen1s), etc? Or would just a plastic exchange hose change and a "pump cleaning" with a solution work with just one pump? I have an old JCW manual pump that I was thinking of using for the differencial but was worried if I used another fluid.

I can imagine you can easily clean it out with some kind of solution and use it for the different types you mentioned..

Anyone know who makes a decent right angle impact wrench?? I see plenty of the Makita, etc. Li-ion versions but didn't know if there was one for compressed air that was cheaper.

Do you mean an air ratchet? Like this?

I have an older Stanley one that has an all aluminum housing that has held up well for years. Do know, however that air ratchets don't have the oomph of an impact gun, but are great to speed up lighter work. Most are less than 50ft lbs; my gun is 600 ft/lbs.

With my welder, I got a certificate for up to $500 of snap on tools. Here's what came today.

My impact wrench was loosing its oomph, so I got a 1,190 ft. lb. gun:

With the money I had leftover I got this:

The guys in the shop use them all the time. Handy for smaller things when you don't need the torque, or have the space for a full-size cordless drill.

you will love that MG725 impact gun Scott, i have the same one, you got the best gun on the market! What model is your welder? Is it a muscle mig 250.? The muscle mig machines kick butt but are very expensive.

I got the NN250SL. It came with a spooler and tig torch. I got a slightly used one (a repo) under a promo they were having, so I couldn't turn down the price. I had been looking at a Miller 250 for years, but with the added accessories included, I went for it.
