How come the Jan truck work got started in Feb. Any how as I said in the Jan thread that should have been in this one. I changed my oil washed the truck and put in some fuel. Nothing else planned until spring when I pull the turbo and clean up the exhaust side.

Yep. Pretty snappy looking if ya ask me. Matter of fact here are a couple pics.




Oh ya something else I did. I read some stuff about pulling the silencer ring on the turbo to make some more noise. Didn't make any more noise or power so I put it back in.

Well My truck work seems like its forever on going. Last fall I rebuilt my front end, all new brakes and lifted my truck. This year I'm going to pull the 7.3l rebuild it and add a turbo with some other goodies. Then hopefully this year( I doubt it). I will get to add fiber glass fenders and box sides, W/ a new paint job.

Nice looking gauges Chris. I would have some Feb work to report if I could only find a transmission for my bronco. Still looking for an AOD for a 90 if anyone knows of one fairly reasonable.

That would be great Chris thanks. I just don't want to spend too much as eventually I will be putting a ZF5sp in it. We never did get a price on that Bronco he had there, we could never get ahold of the guy. We did stop that day but he was not there, we were given a number for him and called and left a message but he never returned our call.

This isnt real truck work its more like dog pen rebuild!
I started this truck to let it warm up and Im not sure how but somehow it popped into reverse.
Scared the dogs pretty bad.
My sons brand new 08 is usually parked right where this thing went, but luckily he was at work.
