Couple better daylight pics. That license plate is coming off the front, I don't boat lol. Tried a flex shot earlier on the spare super swampers that came with it but everything is too wet from thawing I just pushed them :p

I drove the truck to work Saturday for something to do, and definitely have higher rpms at 60mph than I'm use to. I am putting a new pitman arm on because the one now doesn't have enough drop to put the steering where it should be so it has too much bump steer so I will see how it handles afterwards and if needed then I will put a steering stabilizer on.

Well since getting this, I have replaced some things and most weren't needed but was for my peace of mind since I will haul the Lilly Pie around sometimes :D I have replaced all four ball joints, tie rod ends, tie rod, drag link, RA bushings and the pitman arm to help with steering angle. And all 4 shocks with Pro Comp ES9000. Does drive better than it did before.

Plans for maybe this summer, 2nd gen rear with Aussie or Powertrax locker. And suppose to be obtaining a D44 from a 79 F-150 for the future.....:D
