Changed my headlights to the Lumitec LED's. Much better quality at night without blinding other drivers.

I was gonna add a soft tonneau cover but the one that was shipped is for an F150... go figure!

Installed Bull Ring tie downs in truck bed sides, purchased off Amazon (flush mount model). Also received new Motorcraft idler pulley, serpentine belt and Continental belt tensioner pulley assembly, which Iíll install Saturday. Current serpentine belt has some small cracks, and I donít wait for a part to fail.

Cheap and easy maintenance!

I Finally purchased my much needed/wanted replacement leaf springs for my 2001 F350 SRW Am getting them in tomorrow and am super stoked. These new ones are OEM HD replacements, and are a 6 leaf stack. My truck currently has a 5 leaf stack and have been showing quite a few signs of wear and could really use some replacements for all the hauling, towing & daily driving I do with it. I know when hauling a load of firewood, or a box full of square hay bails that the truck wants to rest on top of the bottom overload leaf and I think that's pretty crazy because considering the weight of the 12-14 bails I had in the back only weigh about 50 lbs a piece making it a maximum of 700 lbs and the loads of wood I have hauled were nowhere near a cord and were probably less than 1000 lbs, that's pretty sad to be riding on the bottom overload leaf with only that much weight in the back end, especially given my trucks GVWR of 9900 lbs subtract my trucks weight of 7400 lbs still gives me 2500 lbs of payload. I shouldn't be on those bottom springs from less than half of that weight in my mind So yea, pretty sure these new HD springs will eliminate that, plus I'll probably install some SuperSprings or Hellwig Helper Springs as well to beef it up that much more for heavy hauling.
I'm really thankful that the Standens I ended up buying are made in Canada, as I don't get to see that very often I also bought all new custom U Bolts and new eye bolts as well. Will be posting some "before" & "after" photos tomorrow sometime showing the ride height difference in the rear end when on flat pavement.

These Standens are rated at 3600 lbs


6 leaf stack compared to my current 5 leaf stack


Painted them with several layers of anti rust spray paint & clear coated.

Here's some photos of what I am talking about with my current old leaf springs. With a load of firewood (unsure of weight but not an insane amount) the truck rides right on the bottom overload leaf, same goes for hauling 700 lbs worth of square hay bales, or even hauling a car or van on my pintle hitch trailer. Truck doesn't sag a lot or even at all looking at it from the side in person, rides relatively level for the most part, but I definitely think that the truck ought to be under a Lot more load to make it want to ride on the very bottom leaf like this so much. Just my thoughts anyways. That all aside, I'm really happy to finally get my all new HD leaves put in to replace these old ones tomorrow and will definitely keep you updated on my thoughts and my before & after picture comparisons.

Not near a cord of wood loaded. My guess is probably anywhere from 400-600 lbs. Only hauled through field so didn't bother strapping/tarping FYI.

Did the high idle mod. Set it up to run off the light switch/parking brake. I don't have the aux switches.
