Sorry to hear man!

Kidding, I'm not a fan of D-Max's, but my buddy's 07' LBZ sure hauls *** with exhaust and a programmer! Plus the ride makes my F350 feel like a lumber wagon.

Whats the old adage? Get a Ford for the farm, and a bow tie to tow the boat on the weekends?


Nice rig, but I've never been a fan of the round peg in a square hole fenders. Cant put big tires on. Hell.. I stuffed 32s in my 2wd stock. I don't think you can even get those on a chevy stock. Kinda sad IMO.

Keep a watch on those injectors too man.

Trust me guys I wanted a 250 or 350 with the powerstroke. But this was about 10 grand cheaper than comparable Fords.

And I still wear my Built Ford Tough shirts and hats while driving it.

Yeah my boss has a couple of dmax trucks and they both keep having injector issues.
I would definitely look up hd tie rods and stuff though.

The tie rods are after the exhaust and gauges. It alreday has a Diablosport predator that I have on the 85 horse tune.

And those are after I find a t-case. I locked it in 4wd to go out on the beach and the t-case jumps every 100 or so yards like it's skipping a tooth or something. I need to find time to pull the t-case and tear it apart.
