What's your upcoming truck project?

The weather is starting to shape up. The days are getting longer and warmer, and flowers are popping up. So what is everyone's truck project for the spring/summer? Anything special you want to accomplish, now that it's actually warm enough to step outside without a parka?

I'm getting ready to rebuild my exhaust back pressure valve and turbo pedistal o-rings and install a set of gauges. You?

Hoping to find some time to finish taking apart the F-6 trucks I'm parting out, and straighten up and organize the shop some. Then comes the disassembly of the ol' Merc. That'll be enough to keep me busy all summer.

Me, i get the fun job of tearing down my motor when i get a place to do it. Metallic noises usually not a good sign, sounds like a spoon stuck in a garbage disposal. But an excuse to put that stoker 390 i have been drooling over.

I've got two projects so far, install a heavy duty headlight harness and recondition and install a diesel style bumper inplace of the plain stock one.

Micah, my recommendation is the Thrush Welded. It's a chambered muffler like a Flowmaster, but WAY less expensive. The quality's there, they use slightly lighter gauge steel but it's okay since that makes for less weight. Sounds just as good as the Flowmaster too, IMO. Got one on my Bronco, couldn't be happier. It's held up to numerous backfires too!

You guys have better skills than me. I'm just planning basic mods to my truck, as time allows. I'd like to install some reverse lights. I'm also hoping to install a 12v outlet and LED light system on the bed of my truck.

If I get really inspired, I might yank the stock fog lights and install some PIAA driving lights.

If you have a downstream O2 sensor don't take out your cat, Micah... your CEL will be on, and never shut off unless you put a cat back in. Just be sure before you cut it out that there isn't an O2 sensor on the tailpipe side of your cat. If not, hack away lol. I paid like $30 for the Thrush, you'll probably be paying for the name with Cherry Bomb. Then again, it's not my truck... but I was happy with the quality for my money with the Thrush. The Thrush would probably sound like a V6 3rd gen Toyota with a Flowmaster on your 2.9. I actually think that sound is pretty good, but my guess is that it'll be a little throatier. You'll never find out if you don't try it!

Skills come with time and tinkering. I've learned a lot just from basic maintenance and replacing parts to keep my truck on the road. If you buy even a generic manual for your truck like a Haynes manual (they are only really good for part locations and torque specs, IMO) and take some time to work with your truck, you can improve your skills. It worked for me
