DD-Tow Rig

Guys, Im bored at work and thought id share a little "build" of sorts about my superduty.

1999.5 F350 Ex Cab Short Bed. 6 speed truck that had 168xxx when i bought it. Also has a gooseneck hide-away and bumper hitch.

As far as i know it only had a 7" mbrp stack and was told a edge programmer on it. Originally i liked the stack, but after a few weeks i decided to ditch it. Went ahead and ordered a Diamond Eye 4" turbo back kit. Now, thinking i wanna go back to a single lol!!

Heres what it looked like when i picked it up...



I was kinda eager to pick up a diesel because DSM Central tnt was coming up and i really didnt want to pull the car up with my dads gasser (96 f250). Talk about a difference pulling with a diesel!!! Now i know why people loves these things!!
Snapped a pic at the race track, wish the truck was cleaner but owell. It was pouring when i loaded and left home...


Picked up a set of tires from a local guy 285/75/r16 bfg m/t's. Needed something to get me by until i decide whether i want new wheels or not.
(sorry pics are blurry)



Snapped a pic after getting the rubber on, this is my dads 57 ford. We just sold it about a month ago.


Since it was pretty well stock, i went ahead and ordered an intake, and a set of gauges. After looking around here, i went ahead and ordered a 6637 filter kit from riffraffdiesel.com.


Then i found the complete gauge kit from dieselmanor.com. I decided to go with the 2 gauge set-up being my truck is a 6speed.


Gauge instal was pretty straight forward...


Drove the wheels off this thing without any problems untill it developed a bad oil and fuel leak...



Went ahead and ditched the EBPV in the turbo pedestal, new seals and turbo bolts were installed
Ordered a seal kit from diesel-o-rings.com....Great kit!

Finally got around to fixing the front bumper the best i could, its twisted so untill i find a good local one this will have to do..


Started to hear a weird sound from the front drivers side....pulled er in the shop and front tire wiggles like crazy...yep, wheel hub assembly is shot.



While the truck was down, dropped off my lariet wheels and new coopers at a buddies to have mounted...




Had a buddy make me a set of shackles to level it... Its not quite level, BUT its perfect with a load behind it.



Couple recent shots after doing a quick wash on it...







Will update more later!!

Good stuff....looks so much better without the stack. It looked horrible with that little short, stubby thing back there.
