I wish you were, you could have tested the depth for me

It wouldn't have gone past your bottom cabline...you would have been fine.

Yup, everything went out yesterday. Took out the seats, dried em up (burnt a hole in one seat too...) and took out the drain plugs, etc.

Used degreaser/simple grean to clean everything. Worked awesome.


Clean as a whistle now.

Oil is being changed later today, air filter was already changed, and spark plugs will be checked and all other fluids.

8.8 will go in soon too...

a solution to your efan controller: mount it somewere inside the cab...like under the dash.....that way it has a better chance of staying dry....unless you flood the whole truck again!

Haha, my last one was in the cab...and...it still got ruined...

I just hooked an ACC wire to a switch, then the switch to the efan.

Basically the efan is powered by a switch, but will ONLY turn on when the vehicle is on. I love having control over the fan. It's off 90 percent of the time anyways...








And doug, I have 3.73 gears.

Haha, I think I'm just leaving it how I have it.

It's an awesome product, but just not for me. I need a physical on/off switch.
