Scored a rough country leveling kit today off craigslist for cheap. 1hr later and she's finished up! Best pic I can get for tonight.

Yes, I'm looking at some 285/65/20 Bfg a/t's. I think those are what I want. Lol. Plan on driving it a bit and see if it settles any, if not putting some 3" blocks in the rear. Had to go out and pick up some dinner so I snapped one more cell phone pic.

Thanks guys! Its does sit just about even some times when I look at it then other times it looks a tad higher in the front. I'm picky though.

Looks nice. Any exhaust plans? I put a MBRP Xp series on mine and love it. Any truck i buy from now on will get that exhaust. 3", stainless, lifetime warranty, looks great, and sounds better.
Also, drop your spare tire and check out your FPDM, located above the spare. They get corroded, and all of the sudden your truck doesn't run.

First off, did you see me stranded last night or something?...... fought this truck for 1 hour last night stranded in a town with no parts store 45 minutes from home in darn near a blizzard! That's taken care of now (ironic) but now I've got to figure out why it dies after two minutes when I let it warm up in the mornings! Damn I miss my ranger now! If I keep this truck eventually it will get exhaust,I have been looking around but now I feel I need to save my penny's so I can fix all the nickel and dime stuff that's starting to happen!

Damn, i guess i should have posted that a day earlier. That sucks. As for it shutting off, did it do this before the fpdm problem? I would unhook the battery for awhile to clear the computer and let it re-learn and see if it still doesit.

It did do that for two days prior to the fpdm issue but I have since disconnected the battery and now get the two lean codes. I guess I'm going to check for vacuum leaks now. Ugh!

Well,got the cover on and found the cmcv hose came out from the back of the intake. Glad to have it fixed now! Had to pull the fuel rails off to get to it! What a pain! Now I can move on to the tires though.

Chasing down those little gremlins sucks. What code is it pulling?

I was getting some moisture inside my fog light lenses so I decided to pull them a part and reseal them. And did a little more,didn't turn out perfect but looks decent for my first time.

Well they haven't gotten any moisture in them since but I think I'm going to pull them apart and redo the paint. It didn't bother me at first but the more I see them the more I notice it! Quick pic of them. Headlights will be next.

Well I felt like the back of the truck was "saggy" after the leveling kit up front so I picked up a set of shackles to level it with the leveling kit....... heres the pic that really set it off. Lol

Cleaned the truck up the other day, last pics with the crap tires. The new ones will be on the end of this week! Not the best pic but it cleaned up pretty good.
