my list

I have compiled a list of things I need/ want to do. It includes the immediate future as well as down the road. Here's what I have, I may also add things as I see fit, who knows

I'm gonna put it on here, so I can find it if i happen to lose the physical list itself

IN THE IMMEDIATE FUTURE
-2008 finned aluminum rear diff cover (ordered)
-Royal Purple 75w90 for front diff (purchased)
-Mobil1 75w140 for rear diff + 4 oz. friction modifier (AutoZone and O'Reilly's were out of RoyalPurple ) (purchased)
-Royal Purple ATF for transfer case (purchased)
-transmission flush and filters
-coolant system flush
-sway bar end links
-shocks (bilstein?)
-rear F350 blocks (have 'em, need to install 'em)
-exhaust heat shield delete mod (damn things rattles to no end after 4" install)

IN THE NEAR ENOUGH FUTURE
-boost, pyro and tranny gauges
-exhaust tip (still gotta decide what I want)
-2.5" front leveling kit
-coolant filter
-SCT

AS NEEDED
-Firestone Destination MT 315/75R-16's

Looks to be a pretty good list. Question though why do you not want a tranny gauge?

it is gettin done first, I ordered the aluminum diff cover this morning. So, once it gets here i'm gonna do my diffs and t-case all at the same time. Next I'm gonna call Ford about the tranny and coolant flush. then I gotta do the swaybar end links and shocks. AND the heat shields will be in there too, those things are drivin me nuts!
