We will see what the next 6 months brings. An ideal situation would be to travel to TN then on to PA after that. Not sure my wife would appreciate me being gone for 2 weeks on a truck cruise.
Joe, With​​​ your new rearend you will be able to cruise faster and therefore you won't need to avoid the highways. MapQuest says from California, MO to Howard, PA is 910 miles away and should take around 14 hours. Just make sure you get that firewall pad in and inulation on your roof and a headliner or you'll go deaf!

Oh shoot! I need to add roof insulation and headliner to the procrastination thread. I will add that later.

I heard the forecast last night, but was like "yeah right". Never expected things to be white here this morning. My dog definitely was not impressed! 🤣

Those are the Lincoln wheels that match the suspension under the truck.

Well, my truck is a daily driver, so it seldom sees inside storage.

Hey Jeff,
Does your truck still have that Mercedes symbol on the front? I can't see it
from all that snow! It got down to 23 here in Austin last night but sadly no snow....

Parked in the shop for the winter, didn't drive it much this year because I upgraded the front suspension so now it sits until the spring. Pickup got all the miles this year..
