It's always a joke, they never carry spare parts and drive like dumbasses.

But, it's still fun to watch.

This poor truck has been a bit neglected over the last year. Time for some TLC.

Just bought brand-spankin'-new 285/75/R16E's for it.

Gonna do some fluid changes, give it a nice cleaning, buy a new column, and put the interior back together.

Also, I might have a line on F-350 springs and blocks, steering, and panhard for eventual Dana 60 swap.

BTW, have done a bit of work recently on the truck. It looks alot better and not so sad and messy. I've done a good bit of maintenance like brakes, fluid changes, fixing burnt out bulbs, new headlights and lens cleanup, door shimming, etc.

Plans for the reasonable future include:
Dana 60 swap (stock first then RSK)
New turbo-back exhaust
TS Performance chip
Bilstein 4600 shocks

New Tires:

I've done some odds and ends to the truck over the last year or two. Figured I could update:

Got those Bilsteins:

Last time I updated I had new 33ish tires. Now I have new 35ish tires :cool: :

Still working on those performance parts. Really want them after getting 315's. Got my JF updates done :cjerk:

Didn't realize those were 35 all terrains you put on. Are you an all terrain fanboi yet? hah Truck looks good! Some day I will have a clean OBS. What kind of locker in the Sterling?

I like them. I think the KO2's are pretty badass and got them for $200 a tire. Interested to see how they are in the snow. My Coopers blew and these BFGs are "snow rated". It's a Lockrite, the only lunchbox I could get for the 10.25. Impressed with that too. The lockers and tires made a big difference in mild stuff like Mt. Lake and towing offroad.
