Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

So I'm a little challenged when it comes to time... and I felt guilty so a took some really terrible pics of the monitor for you. It's dark and my phone is definitely not a real camera, but here you go.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

I really like that port through the frame aclew. Whats your plan for keeping the pipe from rattling on the tubing?

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Thanks Red Chevy, the port is 3.75 id. And my exaust is 2.375 od. The 5.3 vortec is mounted Ridgid to the frame. (I have a poly rear Trans mount to protect the tail shaft brg from vibration.) Ill mount the exaust ridggid also and add small stainless flex couplers to allow for expansion an contraction. I'm thinking that will limit movement enouph. The exaust will then travel through mufflers and out the bed skirt in front of the rear wheels. I'd love to hear suggestions this is my first build.

Put my HI-4 kit to use with some 55 watt HID high beams and changed the low beams to 35 watt HID's. Man does it make a difference!

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

put on my LED tailgate strip (no pics sorry) and got some "new" shoes for the truck a set of 20's a set of American Racing 16's and 4 spares for each. paid a total of $100 at a "clear out this building sale." here they are set in place so you get the idea.

Washed it.... Finally, it has been below 0* up here for almost a week. I used my lunch break at work to pull it into the wet bay and wash and wax it.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Drove the stepper to work and back yesterday. Wet snow on the way home. Found out how bad this 2WD square is in the snow. Several near death experiences. Had to switch to the front wheel drive VW for some errands. Learned why there aren't too many of these trucks around anymore . Squirrelly
