Used my truck to Pull my 30' trailer across the great commonwealth of virginia today in a 30 knot headwind. It was like holding a sheet of plywood in a hurricane! Only had one hiccup on a steep grade, CEL came on for about 10 seconds. All vitals were normal so kept on gettin up with no problems. Truck did well, tow tunes made a night and day difference!

I was able to get them off a local individual on FB marketplace. The part number is K120348-L, it is a smoked headlight. Still two piece design, but not over the top. I wanted a stock look light that was smoked, I went for these i believe they turned out nice.

Thanks man, appreciate it.

99% sure sits an over boost code. Happens on 150% of the 7.3ls towing with any kind of a tune at least once lol. Even my truck running stock tune with the ww2 and exhaust will hit it on a steep grade. I felt most tuners should be able to write a tune that eliminates that but I haven't decided to get the over boost code wire harness from riffraff diesel or contact a tuner about it etc.

Drove it 520 miles today to Tucson to get it its annual smog-check as part of a four-dayer mini vacation. Passed as usual, and ran out here flawlessly, as usual. First time its been out of my yard since early September. After 6 months, it was a pleasure to be in it again.

Did the heater core mod. Supposedly it reduces A/C temp by 10*. Works on a vacuum by closing off flow to the heater core while running the A/C. Looking forward to the near 90* temps next week to try it out.
Also built a topside creeper out of spare wood. Proud that I didn't make one single cut Will be very helpful for my turbo removal tomorrow.
