As the trucks finally at it's permanent ride height and mostly aligned I decided to set the pinion angle. It's -1.5* now with preload set on my stifflers bars. I had to install a 3* shim.

Took a few under carriage pics

Loaded up the final revision of my e85 tune.
Put the truck on the lift and fixed my exhaust rattle.
Gapped an ls powered gmc with big drag radials bad enough he wouldn't look at me after.

Got the stripped dipstick bolt hole tapped and replaced the bolt for it.

Adjusted the long bars and noticed that I need to have my exhaust modified because one pipe just barely touches without any weight in it.

Trying to get the power steering res relocation on.
Edit, got it on.

Looks good. Why did you take off the air box? Doesnt it help negate some of the under hood heat?

We'll see. At cruise I was at or near ambient. I doubt it'll be any different. And it was a fucking eye sore.

That's not an "airbox", it's simply a heat shield. And Dusten is correct, looks much better without it. I don't know about anyone else's, but my filter has never gotten that hot to begin with. So why keep ugly?

It's a heat shield that with my hood doesn't even seal against the hood.

@jblot is on here and he makes them.
He doesn't make the reservoir. He makes brackets to locate the stock reservoir to the studs on the front of the motor. The Reservoir is a Summit item, obviously. It says so right on the part.
