Thanks man, its been well worth the five years of hard work!! You'll be there with your sweet ride soon!


On a little update note, not much has changed other than putting some miles on it. I've only had to work on it once and it was a pain in the A$$ job...I was headed up to the hunting camp one weekend to continue our brand new hunting camp build, and i thought i better check the oil before i left...well, the oil level was about an inch over the full line and reaked of diesel fuel...not good. the shaft seal on my injector pump was shot and was pumping diesel into my crank case....so just like a couple mounths ago, off comes the injection pump, install $23 shaft seal, re-install pump, and change oil and filter...Good to go once again!

Let this be a lesson to any cummins guys out there..If you have your pump off for any reason like changing a couple o-rings, change to input shaft seal too, or else you might just have the wonderful task of pulling the pump amonth later!!

I should have known better!!

I may have missed it, but what is your wheel/tire combo, i.e. sizes?

Hey guys, its been a while since I've been on here so i thought i'd give you a little update. The crew is working great, no complaints at all. I've been putting the miles on her and i'm getting around 20 mpg which i don't think is bad at all. Not too many big heavy trucks around here rolling on 37's getting 20 mpg. I also got the bed liner sprayed in last week. I went with Line-X and it turned out great. You can't see any of the patches i welded in the box floor at all. I didn't go over the box side rails, but i did have them go over the tailgate a bit.

Right now i have the rad pulled out of the truck. I noticed a bit of a wet spot under the truck the other day, and after a little investigating i notice that there was a split at the seam of the top reservoir. I probably could have messed around and soldered it myself, but i am getting married next week so my spare time is dedicated to getting ready for that, and the ol' lady wants to take a bunch of pics with the truck at the wedding...so i dropped the rad off at a local rad shop and its suppose to be done by today.

good thing you got the truck finished before the wedding....after the kids come the wrench time goes down exponentially.


20mpg - is that verified against a correct speedo, or atleast a speedo with a known correction factor?

that is really good...

Ha ha, that's what everyone says about getting married and getting the kid program on the move...

The number i'm using is with my speedo, which is out, but i have used my gps as well as some road side radar signs to know where my actual speed is. then with a little math i can figure it out.

When my speedo is at 48 mph i'm actually doing 60 mph.
