Looks real good! No matter what you end up doing to it, I'm sure it will look bad ***.

I wish I had just spent the extra loot and got 238/80's, or 250/100's and PHP tuning again, instead of what I have now (BDP).
ok thanks! So you think PHP tuning is better than BDP? I am wondering who I should choose for tuning! Id like to get a chip here soon so I can have high idle.

I wouldn't let it go man. I think you would really regret it. You have so much time and money in it. You just need to enjoy it!

yea i do have a lot of time and money in it, but its just a hobby, you have to move on at some point. I would be a lot more content if I could keep it at my house. Just not enough room in my garage.

I have PHP tunes and enjoy them. They're reasonable, fast and very willing to help you out.

Did not say it before so I will say it now, nice to see you posting again.

Looks like a nice truck. Keep us updated on your progress.

Zach another diesel!? haha
I just read the other thread where you said "no more diesels" and something about a sour taste in your mouth...

Nice looking truck man. These days I think if I ever have a diesel truck, it would have to have either a 7.3L or a 12v cummins in it.

Hope life is treating you well!

Hey Brian, ha yeah I think I said that a little prematurely I think once you own a diesel you never go back. I missed mine so much, still do miss the 6.4 but this 7.3 is pretty nice. I am liking the older diesel a little more because its not as picky as a 6.4 or the newer stuff. Its just a little under powered but still fun to drive.

Life is great! Hope everything is good for you too.

haha thanks Andy, the truck is a little rough but I like it. Great hauler and work truck which is all I use it for. I dont DD it.

Im still itching to lift it and get some wheels and tires. I was almost there a few weeks ago then I opted to buy my wife a newer car... Probably a wise decision. Maybe this fall.

haha yes, probably a good decision! I have to do the same too, and get my house so my progress will slow down on the toys some as well.
