I swear everything on this truck is designed the ****tiest way possible. I hate this damn truck
yep. everything requires excessive amounts of disassembly.
wait till you change the $5 front axle seals... take the ENTIRE front end apart include removing the carrier. change a $5 seal. reassemble. takes many hours, or days.

Automotive engineers universally HATE mechanics. I think its genetic. They stay up nights conspiring to find ways to make the mechanics life difficult. Hidden bolts. A mixture of fastener types. Standard. Metric. Allen head (which also come in standard and metric). Torx bit. (which they haven't managed to screw up yet.) Six point, twelve point, EIGHT point...... Bolts in places where you can't possibly get a tool on it. At least, not without disassembling half the truck. (of which, not a single part are you changing.....) Random wiring harness changes from year to year, such that a transmission from one year truck, won't fit the years to either side of it, without replacing stuff inside the trans......
I could go on.... (and on, and on and on....) but, you get the general idea.
I ended up not getting to work on it until again today. Anyway, today, I took the starter off then the inspection cover, and got the oil pan back on no problems. Then it wasn't too hard to put the inspection cover and starter back on. So I finally got it all back together. Thanks for the help guys.
