other way around. its higher pressure until it fires, especially when cold, 7.3s should idle at around 500-700 when the fuel is spraying and it can get as high as 3000psi when cranking especially with sticky worn out injectors

I've had several 7.3s on my scan tool, All have about 1v on the ICP sensor...which equals about 5-600psi while starting. that is while cold. Most pumps aren't very fresh and have a hard time hitting 3k psi anyway. Even with a mechanical gauge on mine it hits about 750psi and starts.

well i guess my buddy has an issue with his. He's got a 2500psi mechanical guage that is good and works. the guages pegs at 2500 when cranking until it starts then it starts and drops down to 6-700. Hes got an OBS but that shouldnt make a difference

You put HIDs in, 5 ft above the ground? That has got to be obnoxious.
Have you really been stopped for not having mudflaps, but not for the HIDs? lol

Otherwise it looks good.

I agree about the HIDs lol. I have them in my Ranger and hate them. Never again will I put HIDs in any vehicle I own.

that was when i picked it up, didnt have registration or plates, and it was coming from out of state.. didnt want to risk using plates off another truck so we just trailered it home. going to do a little trailer hauling for a friend and maybe ***** it out for transporting depending what that Insurance goes for.

thanks guys, yea actually i just got a ticket for not having flaps and tinted windows and just about everything else the cop could think of
i need the HIDs because i drive all back roads and deal with a lot of wild life, which is why i did the 05 swap a deer decided to jump in front of me, they are only 46in off the ground and not too bad, ive been flipped off a few times but when they are adjusted right they arent to bad, eventually i plan on getting 4 stock fogs and putting em in the bumper and running HIDs in them as well, so i can use just those as my lights when driving in the city as not to blind to many people .

trucks are looking good guys

Yeah, dude, deer happen. They are everywhere. lol. That's not an excuse to blind the crap out of everyone and create an unsafe situation for others though. I think you'll be okay if you hit a deer in that truck. I hate people making excuses for using them, it is one of my biggest pets peeves because it is blatantly irresponsible and selfish IMO. I would rather hit a deer than blind oncoming traffic and cause a head-on.
There are a buttload of deer around here as well, I've nearly hit several on country roads while I'm driving with low-beams due to oncoming cars. That's what insurance is for. You (and everyone else) would be a lot better off with proper (legal) head lights bulbs, aimed properly. Run a set of quality high wattage off road lights, if anything, when you're in the country/mountains and no other traffic is on the road. In Oregon I had KCs mounted on my Ranger's offroad bumper and used those in the mountains at night. I wired them through my fog light switch and made sure they were off any time I saw light coming from another car. Maybe that is still illegal, but it isn't hurting anyone else because they were never on around another vehicle.

Sorry I'm derailing the thread, going off on a tangent. Not trying to be a dick, just trying to persuade you to get rid of those damn lights!



Freddie, your truck is awesome. I don't know what it is about that bodystyle that I love so much... But it is so rare to find them with a crew cab and short bed too, love it.

HIDs in the stock housing arent nearly as nice as with projectors,

and to be honest my HIDs arent much brighter than the stockers with some silverstars, just whiter light, ive dren towards my truck with the lights on and there aint much different than other cars. almost all the new cars have HIDs in em anyways, where i live you get pulled over running offroad lights on the street before you will for HIDs

Freddie, i love your truck, i almost got one just like that in white, but didnt want to have to do the D60 swap, are you still planning on doing that? saw a guy on another forum put an 05+ front end under it so it had coil springs,and a tighter turning radius.
