COFL Does Basic Maintenance

As I’ve mentioned, I am not mechanically inclined. In the past, I have a) hated working on my truck and b) just done a “good enough” job.

But, that was back when I did all my work exclusivly in my parents driveway. Now that it lives at my new place, I’ve discovered I LOVE working on it! Having your own space, own tools, shade and beer/cold brew coffee on hand really makes things way better.

Not to mention, the floor in my garage is mopped bi-weekly and it is cool to lay on and smooth. Not a dirty, scratchy driveway.

So today, I replaced the transmission gasket, filter and did an oil change. First time doing a transmission pan gasket and first oil change at my place.

Got it up on my rhino ramps:
