I have made some changes to my truck.

I know the people on facebook have seen it but here you go I made it look like a new truck











Doing Work. Boats is just over 3000 lbs. and I towed it from New Orleans to Virginia Beach about 1100 miles. Truck handled it great.



and all clean



And I also got a New CB. Its a Cobra 29 LX peaked and tuned with a receive mod and the Talkback Mod . I also replaced my chewed up 4' firestick with a Wilson FGT-5' antenna. and replaced my weathered Antenna wire with new stuff.

A local guy with a Brand new 2011 Sport 4x4 it was the last brand new Ranger sold in our area. he bought it in December and he already has 6800 miles on it.

I tried to get him to trade rear axles but he wouldnt go for it.

I like it there. Not really in the way too much. I mounted it with industrial strength Velcro for now till I find a permanent way to mount it. I did put it too low on the dash I think maybe an inch up higher would be perfect.

I will take some more for you and post them here. It is the exact same size and computer chip that the cobra 29ltd has. As far as the mods it was peaked and tuned. The recieve mod was done. and the talkback mod makes it so the talkback feature is louder than stock

Disks and his was 31 spline

My front fogs. I never got around to mounting it properly. It will be done soon though.
