Started replacement of power steering reservoir and hoses, oil filter housing gasket, and oil separator and hoses last night. Let's see if I maintain my sanity over the next couple of days...

I wouldn't switch if you have 4.8is tips, the ractives while nice are noticeably smaller side by side, they give the "look" for 3.0 guys but I would stick to your factory tips.

Just break out some steel wool #000 and some Optimum metal polish or similar, get a few rags and use some elbow grease! I haven't seen many exhaust tips that can't be restored to original luster!

I removed the faded and fatigued wiper arms, wet sanded and repainted them with Rustoeum satin black spray paint and I'm delighted with the results. I'll post pics when the sun comes out as it's overcast and raining today.
