Thanks^!!
So the truck is missing under load and trying to accelerate.
I replace all plugs with NGK v-powers replaced a 02 sensor and added some fuel injector cleaner.
I replaced the coil packs just before the winter i geuss they could be bad anyone know how to check them?
Also probably gonna replace the fuel filter.

truck looks mean! When mine was missing pretty bad I finally found that it was an injector. It was the connector plug on one was toast for some reason. So I'd check all the connections and maybe the injectors themselves.

I thought i had posted about the motor. So a few months ago i put gas in the fuel cell 5 gallons probably and the truck sat since then so assumed the truck had gas in it well it didnt i geuss it evaporated with all the 95* days weve had so long story short i put 5 gallons in it and it runs fine. But i know all my sensors work since i checked em all looking for a problem!

I love it when everything looks so new at the end of a project! Looks good bud.

What size tires did you get?

Whos doubler kit? I dont really care for mine that much its so hard to shift in and out of 4wd and such. I wish I would have just bought an Atlas.

Thanks for the replys guys!
Ya everything was all nice and clean but now its all rock rashed and scrapped up already ooh well its not a show truck.

Ive had 37'' maxxis creepy crawlers for a while Zach there a great tire but im wanting a set of 42'' rockers or irocs probably gonna try and trade for a set.

Im running an Off Road Design doubler with their one piece billet shaft got it brand new from a friend for $500 with a 203 so i couldnt really complain. I made my own linkages with heims it shifts alright a little stiff but its good for no...i cant afford an atlas right now.

Spring rates are 250lb over 400lb it does flex awesome but it seams a little stiff im thinking of trying some 300lb or 350lb lowers but i need to get the rest of the truck done first.

Drove it around today and got some death wobble probably gonna try and shim the king pins and see if it helps.

Dunes trip is planned sept 9-12 so trucks gotta be done for then!

My 200/300 are amazing compared to the super stiff 300/450. Granted, I can't go 60 through the desert anymore, but I think it is working well. Now that the springs are getting broke in, it's doing well.
