Me and my wife went riding around in the mountains and saw 4-6". I did lock the hubs, but never needed to use it. BTW Tim. I was in Mt. Juliet last week and will be there again this week. I was going to pm you, but we worked 14 hours a day...
Neal, all you had to do is call. You wouldn't have had to do those springs alone.
Early 99 F250 with parts from Clay, Scott, Roland, Cory, JD, Pete, Christian, Neal, Jim. You could say "Built by Ford, Modded by the Brotherhood"...
We had about 3/4 to 1 inch, but it was all melted before noon..

Huck, It was a last minute call. I decided I would pull it in and check it out. See how much was involved, just scope it out. You know. The next thing you know my leaf springs are laying on the floor and I am dedicated now.
Not a hard job just heavy and time consuming. I like good quality time with my favorite person (me) like that. LOL
We got about 1.5 inches here. It snow most all day but didn't accumulate to much.
Chase has had a virus so he can't come out to play.
It was all me and the beverages this time. We seem to play well together. LOL
I got it done last night no prob... atleast not yet. Got the old one out in 40 minutes and that includes cleaning all the old gasket stuff off the front plate. Went in, ate dinner and played with Chase for a minute. Then back out and had it installed in no time at all.
After I had it together and let the gasket harden I cranked it up. Looked for leaks , none. Went inside for another beverage, spoke to the wife and back out. No puddles under the truck so all is well. Let's take one more look under the hood before I shut it. Oops the valley is full of oil.
YOU BIG DUMMY, NEAL!!!!!
I forgot to tighten the HPOP reservoir plug. Cleaned it up and went to bed. I parked on a hill at work so it can drain here and not at home. LOL
