    Yeah each one seems to go a little easier and I have a much better idea of what to order before I start

    The main thing I miss about my diesel is the heated steerin wheel, the crew cab and the air conditioning in the seats but my truck is way more fun to just drive around

    Worked on installing new exhaust manifold bokys, finishing fuel system, installed new shocks and started the wiring. Getting new exhaust collector built tomorrow and pedal mounted then I can finish the wiring.

    Sorry for all photos being sideways

    Re: Tow Rig Update

    update had some issues with the front disc brake swap, one of the hubs was bad and a backing plate was bent, plus the new brake booster was bad and proportioning valve was not centered causing the front brakes to remain locked up. got everything worked out by using the old booster with new master and proportioning valve. I will say this it will throw you into the dash when you stomp on the brakes now.

    sorry some of the pics are upside down but it was that or not put them up

    SSBC rotor, Wilwood calipers and warn premium hubs

    this is the collector pipe Steve built for me and the air filter was sucking a lot of hot air so I moved it closer to fender. I will eventually cute out part of the radiator support then build a nice screen to go in place so the air filter will get fresh air from the gill
