BTF arms shipped yesterday. Now i think the only thing that isnt there is Camburg's order. good news is my friend is moving home from alberta in a weekish, so the parts should be in around the same time he gets here. The good part of this is that he is the one that will most likely be doing my welding of the frame.

Ready to grab the MBRP exhaust, when my parts get in ill place the order with summit racing. Really nothing changing with it ATM, just washing it, getting ready for an oil change, and will probably drop it off at ford for a trans flush next week.

Last night i finally got my front bearing and seal replaced. I also picked up a new jack, and I'm liking it. No regrets considering i used to lift this truck with a 14" and 4 2x4's stacked.





Old bearings.



Front end.



New bearing!



No more grinding noises! working on maintenance till me parts arrive.

Just placed my order for a MBRP turn down exhaust to shed some weight, gain some noise and power, and tuck it under the frame. Picking that up Friday morning from the local ford dealership.

Also got on the phone with BC Supertrucks and found out my BTF order is in. Thanks Brandon! Waiting on Camburg's coils and gusset kit. If that shows up by Friday, I should see it middle of next week. The plan is to get it all on the weekend of the 20th as I'm off a bit and may take Saturday off to knock it out. I'm expecting to take about a day and a half to get it 100%.
