The best part about that truck, and all the Ford trucks of taht sized compared to the "other" brands of equal size..

It actually fits 37's VERY well, try pulling that off in a yota/dodge/gmc and you have to completely clear the fenders with 10+ inches of lift.

No time to work on it tonight, a guy off PowerStrokeNation.com had trailer issues down on I70 (2 hours from me) so I offered to drive down there with a welder and fix it in the truck stop parking lot. That was interesting but he is from cali and headed to west virginia. Some how the wheel cracked and lost all air, so I welded it back shut ground it smooth and filled it with air. Worked out great!

He had a real nice 2008, lifted Blue, on 37s. Pulling a 1974 porche and a Toyota helix with a 327.

Where in WV is he headed?

Was a great thing of you to do Zach. I passed him on I70 in Washington today around 5pm and the trailer looked to be holding up just fine just so you know.

Too bad your not closer, I love doing wiring. I'd so much rather go to town with a soldering iron and heat shrink than turn a wrench lol.

at this point i am not really sure i am enjoying any of it but I dont mind working on it. I just want to see it done.

i have a pretty large shopping list of parts and things i need, but with the way this summer has gone I am not sure when i will be able to order any of that. medical bills, broken superduty, superduty needs tires badly, the list goes on. lol

Ordered my Twisted Stitch Seats today, I just went with a basic all black vinyl seat, I wanted to do custom colors but for 100 bucks more I figure I can put that to a little bit better use somewhere else. I am also hoping to order the NorthWest Fabworks triple shifters today or tomorrow.

Little bit of an idea what those look like.




Image of the seats, just all black.

If I'm not mistaken.. he is going to be runnign a double, with a high/low gear on each settings - that gives you EXTRA low gears - on top of the normal gearbox shifting for a manual..

So - Transmission shifting, doubler shifter, and 4wheel high/low shifting.. right?
