    Almost purchased a $150 rear passenger SILVER fender flare last week from ebay to replace the one my wife ripped off nearly two years ago. She grabbed all the parts and I managed to glue it back together but it's looked like hell since.

    I checked LQk today and found a pretty beat up Yukon same color and dropped in for a look. Most of the truck was ravaged and torn apart but sure enough, a black 8 out of 10 condition rear fender flare was there ready for the taking. I also grabbed my missing center bumper step plastic trim.

    Walked out of there for less than $20 today feeling awesome!

    Also received Pooryukon.jpg newflarepicked.jpg OldFlare.jpg Newflareinstalled.jpg LEDflasher.jpg my new LED flasher relay. I put the new ANZO brake lights on and installed a Sylvania 3157 into the BRAKE/TURN socket in fear of bulb heat damaging the housings. This of course caused hyper flash which was fixed for 8$ Wooot!

    I did wash and wax the new cladding, just so ya know it matches well!

    Installed a billet shifter, auto dimming mirror, 96-98 ashtray assembly, and homelink in my 95. All junkyard parts except the billet shifter.

    Seat covers came in for the front. They are PLEATHER material. decent quality for 27$ on amazon. I just could not spend 600$ per seat right now for new leather. Maybe later These FH tan covers are a nice fit and we'll see how they hold up.

    On Saturday, I finally replaced the right front wheel bearing, so I have ABS for the first time since 2009! Last summer, the left side had noticeable play. The right side still didn't, but it felt off on the road.

    Yesterday, I replaced the original rear calipers. Both have felt like they weren't always releasing, and felt stiff when compressing them, even with the lines disconnected. Flushed the fluid in the rear lines while I was at it. The brake pedal feels FANTASTIC. It's at least as good as when I bought it 13 years ago. Then again, the only original part left is the master.

    I also I replaced the recline lever on my driver's seat (been broken for 4+ years). Treated all the weather stripping for 303 protectant, which actually prevented my windows and doors from freezing shut.

    Yes mostly back to normal. Still wants to not let the throttle release on idling speeds at about 1000k rpms and 2500-2800 in neutral but idle is calm and I've been just driving it.

    Finally found some time to get on this. Got the puddle lights working last night. I already had footwell lights installed and signaled from the dome, so I just tapped into those wires and the puddles come on whenever the dome comes on.

    Also purchased two pair of EMF Swag 6.5"s. Got the front two in last night while hooking up the puddles. Hope to get the rear two in tonight.
