Just bought 2005 XLT 4x4

Hello all, I have been poking around on the board for a little bit now. Just traded my 2007 Nissan Frontier for a big boy truck, I got myself a 6 liter. List of pre-installed mods: 8" Fabtech lift, dual reservoir shocks in all 4 corners, 38x15.5x20 Khumos on Avenure chrome wheels, airbags in the rear, dual exhaust, AEM cold air. Future mods: ARP head studs, Onyx gaskets, BPD EGR cooler, coolent filter, SCT tuner w/ custom tunes, Edge insight, and a laundry list of other little things.

I got this truck mostly because my brother is a certified Ford diesel tech and will be doing the wrench work for beer, food, and cigars. Plan is to pull the motor and build it up this fall sometime. Until then it will just look badass on the road.

Out with the old:

Welcome to the org! FWIW, I would go factory head gaskets.. And yes I would say thats a move up from the old rig. Looks like 2 or more feet..

I've been figuring out OEM head gaskets are the way to go. Thanks

Haha the Nissan was a good rig. I can't say I would ever go back, but it served me well.
