Thanks guys! I'm really liking the way it's sitting now.

thats the issue lifting the TTB's though.
i know i had to pay a few bucks last time too but its right on the money.
with the price of tires and fuel,it pays to make sure they're pointed in the right direction(s.)
she's really coming along nicely midnight.you've been right at it.
your neighbors are probably starting to talk.mine are saying iv got the best maintained truck in town cus they always see me working on it lol.

i dont have any neighbors lol. the gf/s dad lives 1/2km up the road and anyone else is over 2km away

plans for the next few months include (but not limited to)

-3" bodylift.
-3G alternator swap
-Electric fans

- possibly a pillar gauge pod with fuel pressure, volt, vacuum, and temp gauges. (still undecided on this tho)

She's all pointed the right direction now


Just found a 3"bodylift on kijiji about a 15min drive away new in the box for $150. It's a performance accessory kit. I think I'll grab it the next day or two. Then finding time to install it is another thing.

I still have new valve body/acumulator springs to go in my tranny to pull the b&m shift kit out (been shifting HARD in 1-2 since i put it in) going go eliminate the kit as a possible issue before I even think about it being something else as there's no codes
