Hey all,

Thought i'd finally join a forum again after trading my beloved '70 GMC for a '94 Gen I 7.3.

Besides for the body it runs great and sounds even better. So far in it:

-3.5'' Straight pipe exhaust
-4'' Rancho lift
-35'' Mud terrains
-Nice big bush bumper to make it look mean

Now after i got it, the cold Alberta winters took its toll and had to plug it in every night. After some trouble shooting at my Shop ( I work for International) I found i had a glow plug solenoid issue. A good 50$ later i replaced the solenoid and it starts like a charm.

My next addition is goin to be a stack i found in scrap metal bin. Im still tryin to figure out how im gonna step up from my 3.5'' to the 5'' stack i want to put on.

After its done it'll be a bit shorter then this...
