I broke out the 357 Magnum this afternoon:



Made a little mess:







Then got out the pressure washer to spray it all out of the cracks and gave it a bath to get the rest off. I think it came out pretty good.







Total time was about 4 hour including clean-up and burger grilling.

Only thing I didn't do was the roof. I'll get it next time.

Going out now to put the shock brackets and shocks on, than put the exhaust back on, and start it up, cure the paint, and check all the bolts for tightness after it cools off.
What's the benefit of the springs versus just bolting it down?

The ball and socket style collectors tend to leak after multible heat/cooling cycles due to the different thickness materials between th flanges, bolts and pipes when they are bolted with regular bolts. Alot of guys with the Hedmans complained about it, so I figure ill use these to prevent it.

Ummm, no, because stock ride height OEM springs are EVIL! They suck big green.....you know whats!

Now, swap in a set of stock ride height OEM F250/350 springs and everything is golden!!!

It's actually green, not black.

Found the stuff here:

Their purple tire dressing is good stuff too.

Finally! After a LONG wait for powder coating and dealing with 13.3v charge levels my old failing OEM alternator for FAR too long, I can't wait to put it in over the weekend:

Springs are also often used on motorcycles and snowmobiles and probably atv's to keep pipes and their joints from breaking.

It's the DCPower Inc. 250Amp XP Series. Specs and link below. Cost? Ridiculous! But I spent more on the BPD FICM and when I replace a part I never want to worry about it again. This thing puts out more amps at idle than my old one did at max rpms and with the kids A/V system, upgraded stereo and the additional lights I'm planning to install I need all the idle amps I can get. If I need to go dual alternators later I'll be amazed but then I'll just get another 250A...
