Bryan, correction,

you're all truck and trailer!

Of course I was talking about a shed load of horses under the bonnet of your F250 and nothing to use it on

JW valve body for the 4R100 auto-trans on my truck. Ordered from RR last week. Planning to install at the tech-session 31/3. Man I hope it comes in time.

Also got the RR over-boost reg. I'm pretty sure that I've hit the overboost condition in the truck a couple of time and the RR over-boost reg should stop that happening - so more power going up hill under load and throttle. I'll fit that myself as soon as it comes!

Bryan, can't believe you've gone back to leaf springs after all the linkages you've had on your truck.
I notice the Icon 3" system doesn't come with longer U bolts for the rear axle. If you end up needing a set let me know. I ordered Ruff Country 3" lift kit and got a set of really long U bolts which I didn't end up using. For me, once I'd removed the shortest stock leaf from the spring pack and inserted the higher blocks, the U bolts that were on there still did the job. The rear suspension is a lot plusher having removed the short leaves, which were about 1/2 an inch thick!

BTW, I haven't shelled out yet for the RST hitch (the gooseneck one). I figure if we get a bigger horse float I'll stick to the normal 4.5T towbar. At least that way if I end up selling the big float I have a larger market of buyers - i.e. all the Landcruiser (non-ute) drivers
