Congrats . . . you have the mod bug! Now just wait until you get the exhaust on with that 6637 and hear that baby hum and you'll be itching for a chip . . . then comes the expensive mods, injectors, turbos, HPOP's, lol!!

I am on all the sites under the same name, I hang with the OBS crowd though. If you got any questions let me know. But do yourself a favor and dont cheap out on stuff. When it comes to gauges get autometer cause anything else just breaks. Same with the transmission crap. Its all a matter of getting what you pay for

Out the door I paid a little over $17k. I wasn't too sure about the color either but I couldn't find anything else with this low mileage and this many options for the price!

How does ISSPRO compare? That's what is in the package deal for the gauges off RiffRaff Diesel.

I talked to him for a bit last night and a little this morning. His flight was delayed a few times so he wasnt able to actually hit the road till yesterday evening. As of this morning, he had 900 miles left and expected to be home at around midnight lol

Oh yes. Rides like a dream! I think i'm going to tint my windows a bit darker than yours. I showed my girlfriend your truck and she loves the color. But then again, who doesn't? lol

Thanks I love it too lol.

Darker tint is nice I just wanted the tint to match the factory tint on the rest of the windows. I never tinted the windows on my f150 when I had it lol, only reason this truck got it was to help keep the leather looking good.

Anyway, get us some pics of your truck now that its in your possesion. Can't wait to see it!

Changing the oil and fuel filter tomorrow. The overflow tank has a pin hole leak in it. I've heard it's a common issue. I drove all the way home with it like that without any issues because it's above the "full" line. The passenger rear door lock doesn't unlock the door so I have to replace that. The passenger front window is a bit slow going up and down so I figure the motor is going out. Other than that, this truck is a dream. Hopefully i'll get some good pictures up this week!

As for the tint, i'd like darker tint but not so dark that it's a PITA to see out of at night.

My passenger side window is slower than the driver's, guessing the window track just has more resistance due to being used less.

Did 20% on my fronts back at the start of July and love it, matches the back perfectly.

I think that's what they put on there because you can see where the tint shop cut the tint when I roll the window down. It must have been a long time ago for it to have rippled. I'm thinking about tinting the back doors and back window 5% then doing the front doors 20%.

try this on your passenger window...take some spray silicone and lube up the run channel...that might solve the problem and save you from putting a new motor in it
