I went to the local powerstroke expert shop. He let me help him out a bit and trust me there is no reason to lift the cab for this job. It is far easier than everyone makes it out to be and I would do it in my driveway if I ever had to do it again. He gave me a lifetime warranty so hopefully I wont have to do that!

Oh BTW to top off my day I just bought a set of barely used BFG Mud Terrain KMs off of some guy in the McDonalds parking lot for $300, he just bought new all terrains and had them sitting in his box.

Congrats on getting your truck sorted out. You gotta love that 03 turbo through a straight piped exhaust. It seems like you got a pretty decent deal, and a LIFETIME WARRANTY? Priceless! You should definitely post up information on that shop. He deserves all the business he can get.

(I'll still pull the cab or the engine though when I have to do this much engine work )

They are extremely well known in Canada, he is located in Winnipeg MB and he has a steady flow of guys bringing 6.0s in from Alberta for work. If you live in Canada PM me and I will give you his info, I want to make sure he is cool with me spreading his name everywhere before I post it up.

It was raining and snowing all night here but I had my passenger windows open the entire time! Now I understand the 03 turbo hype...

Good deal. I just got similar stuff installed by a powerstroke shop and was totally satisfied with everything. The new turbo screams.

Mounting up the 35s on Tuesday, have got mixed responses to how 35s will fit on stock suspension but I got an insane deal and my current factory continentals are DONE! I will update with how they fit.
