Well, obviously I'm not getting far. The town here decided it was a good day to clean up the roads and road side. So they've been around the front of my house and the neighbors, digging up the drainage ditches, cleaning up trees, etc. They have 2 trucks, a shredder and a backhoe blocking the road. They hopefully are almost done.
Since I do my work part way in the middle of this dead end road, I can't be out there in their way. Ugh.
They had to pick this morning to do that...

Well, I didn't get much done.

Did get the axles replaced, both sides.
As of right now, no more popping noise when put into gear from park or neutral. We will see if it stays that way.
Got the fog lights mounted, and part of the wiring hooked up. It just got to the point where it was too damn cold to be messing with wiring outside. I'm still shivering right now. It went from being decent, warm, sunny.. to freaking dark and cold in a hurry.

Would have done the oil change, but I realized I was 1 quart shy, Otherwise, that would have been easy. Already had it up on ramps working on mounting the fog lights.

Considering when I went to work to get my check, I was told my back up was going to be out for medial reasons for at least the next week. So, I had to figure some things out... that took up way too much time.

I looked at mine, told myself I got to get it waxed before winter hits. And found something else to do.
