racks on newer half tons are super easy to install, so you could probly save yourself a couple bucks by doing it yourself

I think his back is still messed up from the accident, he was trying to avoid having to get under a truck and work on it.

Yeah my neck and back have a lot to do with it. I have installed the rear sway bar, air bags, frame mounted camper tie downs, painted the underside, etc. That's more than what I can handle right now. lol

But the steering rack was going in at the same time as upper control arms anyway so I figured I might as well just get it all done at once.

Don't really have many friends in this state. I don't really work well with most people from this area, much different interests and personalities. Nick from Ohio (don't think he signed up here yet) is a good guy, and has helped me out a few times but I hate asking for help too much, you know...?

Got it all worked out now anyway. On to the next problem! lol (hope not)

Is this a hose to an oil cooler you installed Ramsey?
