    I greased all of my rims with anti-seize grease so I don't have to kick-box them off of the caliper. I also greased the back-sides of the brake pads and brake piston to stop the metal squealing when brakes are applied (brake pads were far above the metal tab, also known as the squealer)

    2ft to my right was also a massive boulder as well...

    And yeah, we got hit with a rogue storm. I was trying to drive back to school my apartment in Maine (this was in VT) and had my summer tires on. Didn't even make it a mile from my parents house. :(

    New windshield was installed today to replace the old one with a massive crack all the way across it.
    --- Post updated ---
    I also applied a new sticker to the windshield, since I was waiting for a new windshield to apply it to.

    He clearly lost control of the car. Look at the road. So much ice.

    I'm teasing him. It genuinely does look like he didn't try to steer it back onto the road though. Must be some really bald tires. And what's with the clunk right when he starts to lose control? Sounds like the transmission shifted hard and threw everything out of wack.
    Really threaded the needle though. Got pretty lucky.

    I fixed a piece aluminum dash trim on the bronco. One of the previous owners had drilled 4 holes for switches and left large burrs that almost ripped my microfiber towel when I cleaned out the interior, so I removed the headlight and wiper knobs to remove the trim, then I removed the rear window controls from the trim and broke a clip in the process, then I deburred it and then covered the holes with electrical tape that matched the black paint. Since that was done I reassembled everything and after bending the lock tab on the headlight knob back into position, everything looks better than when it did when I got the truck though. I would have just replaced the trim but no one makes the part I need so I patched it together instead.
    I still need to install my stainless lines and hoses though, but it has been raining my entire April vacation.

    I cleaned the windows, vacuumed the carpet and put it on the battery tender because the tailgate window won't go down due to low voltage.
    I also made a spreadsheet

    My "new" Suburban has a slow window motor too, I think I might try one of the harnesses from LMC that runs power straight from the battery. I wish it had barn doors, but oh well it was cheap. Make sure those side steps you have listed bolt to something secure like the body mounts or frame, I just had to take some cheap steps off an older truck and they were a PITA because they were just bolted into the sheet metal.
