One of these weekends I'll get my 12V OASIS air pump installed in the toolbox, install the 5 gallon air tank on the frame rail and route the air lines to the ARB's, Firestone air bags, and install outlets in the front and rear bumpers.

Also have a Can-Back top sitting in storage waiting for my lazy butt to install. I was also going to install the bed rug I have in storage but that does not fit in well with my hunting ventures. Too difficult to clean it!

Just seat covers. Costco had a promo with covercraft. So I bought a set for the front. The covers have been sitting in a box for 3 weeks now, prolly should allocate some time this weekend for the install.

I am looking into some interior lighting from Recon. Changing my interior lamps out to LED's and maybe their light bar that goes below the tailgate.

bigjimcruising is starting off with a positive reputation.
Just had 6 traction tires installed along with new shocks all around. Lots of bucks but should work much better then the old street rubber. Looking into new solar panel addon to get more juice to the batteries and maybe adding a couple more batteries to the camper. Also shopping around for a new HAM radio to install in the camper. All I need is more money!

Towing

Towing 6,000 lbs with the 6.0 should not pose a problem. Why mine went is any ones guess.

Brady,

Why the air chuck on the "T", right out of the regulator? What's it do?

Heads

No Bill they said I caught it just in time and the heads were not warped. I've got 75,000 plus left on the warranty so if they took any short cuts Perry Ford in Poway will get it back and it will still be on their dime. I wanted to provide ARP studs but they wouldn't put them in stating Ford will only honor the warranty with Ford parts. So far everything has worked out. I told the service writer if I have to bring the truck in one more time and leave it I will have to look into the Lemon Law Too many problems with a truck only 2-1/2 years old and only 22,000 miles.
