wow, FINALLY, so what was the final problem that was holding it up???

It appears that the problem is the tire/gear combo is what's making it fail. 35's and 3.73's are making the engine work too hard. And therefore put out the elevated smog levels.
when they tested it first time they ran it on the dyno and it failed again. the second time they did a static (no load) emission test and it passed with flying colors.:thumbsup:

...Congrats on finally getting your smog...Now, get them tags and get ready for Pismo..:D

yeah as soon as i get back from Florida. Damn it seems like everything is just falling into place for this trip.:D

lol that an old photo i snagged from here along time ago. Just have been learning a new graphics program and want to see if the resizing worked correctly. So i change it to day to see of it worked.

So my truck is the same ol crappy Tan/Beige that it has always been.
