    I came across that one time at LKQ Pull A Part in Tulsa, dude was hiding shit in a car until the 50% off Memorial Day sale they were gonna have which was a few days. He left and I robbed the stash cause he stashed some stuff I needed.

    The one thing that torque's me though is when they destroy everything to get one freaking part.. most of them do it on purpose too and the guard there is worthless as tits on a boar hog.

    It'll be kinda slow on the progress lol, first on the agenda is finding a decent set of rims and tires other than these 22's with rubber band tires.

    Also the Suburban already had a tune up apparently. He used Autolite plugs though so I may change them out as I hate Autolite, but new plugs, wires, cap and rotor.

    I bought a set of Ceramic pads while at work today, next payday I'll buy a set of rotors on Rockauto, either Raybestos or the Powerstop made with G3000 iron. Screw the Bosch Quietcast and house brand rotors lol.

    Yeah, about the only thing I've done so far is move it to my backyard. My F100 is currently on the cement pad I use for the majority of my work, so it's gonna be a plywood job to get the transfer case out and the new one in.

    I need to get an output shaft seal and a transfer case to transmission adapter seal as well.

    Did some digging and the Brake Best brand we carry at work is actually made of G3000 iron. For what I can get them for I think I'll give them a shot.

    I still haven't found what the Clifford light is for, and the green rocker switch that lights up when it's turned on doesn't seem to go to anything, the lights on the bumper aren't even wired to anything. I wanna find a foglight switch that's factory and run a new set of lights off of it on a relay.

    Haven't really done anything to the burb since my last update. Last Thursday I dumped the remaining fluid out of the replacement transfer case, have decided to strong arm it with my buddy I started this whole thing with lol. Figure the both of us can get the damned thing in and out in a day.

    I have to work OT this week so I only get one day off, which means I'll most likely do the front pads and rotors, and then I gotta do some more shit to the Trailblazer...

    I'm gonna pick up an output shaft seal and the case to transmission seal in prep for the swap hopefully next week, just need to make sure I don't have to work OT and see what day my buddy is off. Also plan on getting some clear corner lights and parking lenses, and also wanna get a new set of the glass fronted clear headlight assemblies. I prefer the clear look lol.

    I've got a few things planned for recent as soon as I get the transfer case squared away.

    New 78 series platinum AGM battery and a new hold down as mine was missing. Also bought two new rotors, output shaft seal and the adapter flange to transfer case seal. Have to pick up a day of work tomorrow so I'm not gonna get the chance to do anything to the burb til probably next week.

    Picked up a Throttle Body rebuild kit and a gallon of Chemtool to soak everything in. I'll probably do that after work tomorrow since I got a rare midshift. Have a migraine and laundry to do or I'd tear it apart today.

    I got side tracked.. uploading the pics now. Pics were to big to upload direct to post and to the gallery here, so I'm using imgBB to host them. Sucks but alas, I'm not about to resize all my damned pics to upload.
