You could call it that.

It still seems to run good.

The EGR is disconnected since the line broke. Never got around to fixing it.

Yea, sounds like marbles in a can. I know what it is, but money is the problem.

Thats the only good thing about the 4.0 OHV.
Solid lifters.
They can tick all they want, but they won't break unlike other engines.

Not the OHV's.
The newer 4.0's do.

Haven’t decided on the frt end yet, I have one out of a TJ but it still needs to be measured up for fit. (another thread)

The Electric actuator is something that should be sweet.

I think I'm that tread? You are trying to decide whether you are going to go full length d44 or not right?

Yea that would be sweet. E-Locker for the win! I would definitely go this route If I was to put a bit of a lift and did 33's. Don't see it happening anytime soon though. :-I
No point for (me) to do it on a factory truck unless I get into doing gears etc. Which is where the 33's come into play.

Today i ordered a new dash cover and seat covers. When i get the truck it has a red interior and i want to change it to black. Hopefully the trans will be fixed soon and i can go get it? Also picked up oil, filter and slick 50 to put in, not sure slick 50 really works but i flush the engine and put it in once a year and my f150 stepside has 240,000 miles and runs great so i'll keep doing it.

hauled various building materials to do the repairs on the house i just bought, hauled bricks around to the back of the property from the chimney that was torn down and got it all dirty but it still looks sexy as hell.
