    Yea I'm heading back up to Michigan in a month. Just waiting for their Lockdown to get over with.

    I'm going to pull the fifth wheel and 6 of the drive tires and button up the vents on the drive trains than wrap the motor up and go to town sandblasting the frame and differentials after giving it a heavy duty pressure washing .

    Its not super rusty but it is the base of the whole truck and it looks bad. I will paint it with a bullet proof 2-part industrial Epoxy i have used for many years.

    Than I'll pull the axles and just inspect every thing and install new seals and rear brakes and rebuild the cans and run new air lines.

    I wouldnt be a owner operator or a truck driver anymore if i had to drive a truck that has regen. I only like the feeling of owning and driving a truck that sings the symphony of diesel and smoke and no headaches of check engine lights. Just pure bussiness.
