With the dollar exchange rate that'd be almost just as bad haha, like I said I'll 9/10 get duratracs, 31's seem that a good size for my 4 cylinder with 4:10's anyway

But as for driving far places...idk if im just imagining but so far this tank has been much better with the cap on, which is weird because i had a cover before

Is it just the picture or is that lower brake bracket hole on the left knuckle drilled kinda funky? It doesn't look centered like the right knuckles does.

Went off roading again yesterday, same spot as last time but this time without the chevy, No surprise we fit through super easy and went all the way to the pits at the end, didn't have faith in the 2wd climbing some of the hills but surprising it did...having some faith in the bfgs after all :p


Only hill I couldn't seem to climb, was super soft wet dirt

Broke the side step off when going over a steep hill, I may have caught air going over...it was slick and I need momentum



Then I slept in the truck over night, got rather cold at 0 degrees but with enough blankets we managed, going to be getting a twin size air mattress for next year

Truck looks good man. Can't wait to see how it looks lifted. What size tires are on their now.. like a 29-30" tire?

I need a cap for my ranger.. after putting one on the F250 I see how useful they are.

I'm almost willing to bet that the part numbers for the rear are the same as what I have.

A pillars are wired up, oil pressure isn't hooked though, voltage is

Pionner double din is installed, not impressed with the person who installed it, i asked for it to be by passed and he didn't, not to mention he didn't even use the double din dash kit i bought for it, it's literally taped to my bezel from behind(surprising won't budge but of course i'll do it properly)

Also finally got my 2 channel amp hooked to my door speakers, asked him to slide the sub over behind the passanger seat and have the amp behind mine but he did the opposite so back to less leg room, guess I'll fix that too..

Besides those few issues I am happy with it. the double din looks badass in my opinion, kinda makes it feel more classy in there, and the amp defiantly makes it all sound more clear
