    Thanks, I appreciate it!

    Used some UV reflective oil dye and confirmed my rear main seal is leaking:

    Pulled Radiator, fan shroud, fan, all idler pulleys and the tensioner. Got all idlers and tensioner on (but was lazy and just swapped pulleys lmao), got the belt back on, cleaned off my fan and battery tray, Gonna clean up some more shit while all of its out, then the plan is to pour some water through the upper radiator hose without the rad on to flush the block without getting any of the nasty stuff in my shiny new radiator. Then I'll get everything all back together and hopefully get that rear main seal taken care of next week/weekend.

    Bit of an update on all this trash now:
    I finished up the rad, and had a mishap with the trans cooler lines, all in all lost about a half quart of ATF, so I added some back then temp and level checked it. Actually DROVE the thing for the first time in over a week, about 25 miles to my buddy's place, where he'll be doing my rear main for me. @Emelianenkov also is getting my CO's and rear springs shipped out real soon. Pretty excited, everything seems to be coming together. I should be getting UCA's and rear shocks soon, too.
    Edit: I'm also gonna be finishing up that damn winch solenoid when the truck's done. I got some 2AWG wire for it, just need connectors and I'll be good to make new wires.

    Rear main seal has been done for a few days now, everything seems good. A good portion of my suspension got shipped a few days ago, too. Now I just need to buy UCAs and rear shocks!

    Did have to cut a few exhaust bolts along the way, but it went decently
