let's see.

I bought my truck a little over a month ago.

Since then, I:

Rhino Lined the bed and the bottom of the tailgate
Put on new pads and rotors all the way around
Installed a 4" ProComp lift
Installed my PHP Chip
Installed fog lights
Installed dual steering stabilizers
Painted my front grille black
Had all 4 ball joints done
Got it aligned

To be done:
Driver's side wheel bearing
possible Tranny Rebuild


Yeah, I'm out of money.

99.5 F250 ECSB

4" ProComp Lift
ProComp Wheels with 35" Terra Grapplers
Zoodad Mod
TGC Dual Steering Stabilizer
PHP Phoenix 80dd - 120race

putting a vacuum actuated shut off valve in the heater hoses to shut off the coolant while on max a/c. no coolant circulating through the heater core will make the a/c blow colder. i used the 4 port shutoff from a 96 ranger. dieselsite makes one but it is a 2 port and lots of money. http://www.dieselsite.com/index.asp?...PROD&ProdID=21
