A few more things done. My truck is always evolving

I love my truck. I thought I'd show off some of the stuff I've done lately. As of now, all the small annoyances my truck had when I bought it are gone.

I bought it last Nov. When I got it, it had 194k on truck, and 40k on new engine and built trans. It was lifted but had cheapo shocks and 3 stacked blocks in the back. I despise blocks; especially when I see someone with a $40k truck with giant blocks.

Anyway, most recent mods include:
bilstein 5125s all around
6" leaf packs in rear
straight pipe
wicked wheel
6637 filter
new batts
hpx line
stripped intercooler pipe
6.0 trans cooler
05 headlights
new radio (pass. side speakers weren't working with factory radio)

Today I cleaned my power window switch and taada! Power windows work! I've had the truck for almost a year now and have just been living with it. I also took off the front sway bar and a bunch of other brackets that were just hanging there not doing anything.

on to the pics



Don't hate on the tire shine, I found a can in the garage and used it up.




I am going to lower it whenever I find factory front springs, I really want to do a leveling kit or very small lift and 35s. I just keep searching craigslist for someone close.

I've been getting around 15mpg lately so I can't complain for such a big truck. I may try a php phoenix chip sooner or later. I love my dp f5 but I keep hearing really good things about the php.

Kindof a useless post but everyone likes truck pictures.

I try, there are alot of clean ones on here. Thanks to the internet I'm always getting ideas for new upgrades.

Its amazing how well these things hold up over time. My girlfriends car is a 2009 toyota and it already has paint chipping off.

Hopefully my 7.3 will keep going strong and not have any major problems.

The wicked wheel was a great investment. Got rid of my boost flutter or whatever its called, and it sounds really good. I changed my pedistal o-rings while I was there so thats a little piece of mind.

The install kindof sucked. I kept dropping tools in the valley and the up pipe clamp was a major PITA to get back on. If I ever have to pull it again I'm sure it will be much faster. It would be much easier if I didn't have the truck lifted but thats usually the case.
