The radiator that's in the truck is an aftermarket one anyway and it's been in there since I first bought the truck in 2012. Who knows when it was actually installed, but it was very dirty and probably needed to be replaced anyway. I got a new one from Amazon for $40 or so.

It was a pain to get the driveshaft out. Those bolts on the flange there (visible in the video thumbnail) were stuck tight. Even my air powered impact wrench wouldn't remove them. I ended up getting them off with a 10 amp electric impact wrench. Ordered a couple Moog 269 super strength non-greasable u-joints from Amazon for $20/ea. Once the shaft was out I pressed the old u-joints out with my Harbor Freight 12 ton.
I've also got some more parts for my big electrical system upgrade...
More to come on that later this year hopefully!
