      Looks like a short bed. Should tow great! Wife wants a crew cab. I'm told the supercabs are not much smaller than the crew cabs.

      Does it have overload springs in the back?

      I don't think so, haven't really crawled all over it yet. It was originally owned by a CHP officer, and the guy bought it from was x- military. He used to tow a 25ish foot travel trailer with it. Only has just over 130k on it.

      So, how about towing the JP Mobile out to the desert with that thing some time and come camping with us??

      Nice purchase. I think I know who used to own that truck. He bought it, lifted it, drove it around for a few years and sold it to get a diesel. Only towed a little lightweight toy hauler with it. If its the same guy, he was with a big group of people who went to Glamis from the OC.

      Truck came from the OC. It was originally purchased from villa ford. So probably same truck. Guy I got it from just pulled a 25' bumper pull with it and daily drove. Funniest part is he lived 2 miles up the street from zukman and he worked a few miles down the road from my house I

      Part number is correct. (400439) If they don't fit. I can sell them at least for what I paid for them or more.

      Interesting. I thought with the vacuum hubs, you couldn't run just any lockout.. OR does it not have vacuum hubs?

      What radio does it have in it? Has the dash been cut up for a double din yet?

      I hope you're wrong on that Tom, my Excursion has the vacuum lockout and I now have to actually turn the hub to get them locked, I'm hoping to switch over to some Warn or something in the future.

      Yes you can. You just plug the vacuum line. I have a broken one anyway

      Factory in dash 6 disc. Works perfect. Never changed. I plan to swap to a double din however.

      Zukman donated an old light bar to the project. With a little modification should work perfect.:thumbsup:

      Knew there was a reason, I didn't get rid of the 6x9 KC's off JP:D
