Chain Requirements

You live in Nor Cal so you should know that Caltrans requires all light vehicles to carry chains for at least 1 axle when entering a chain controlled area. Even 4WD/AWD vehicles with snow rated tires.

Copy that. Thanks for bringing it up. I have an old set from a 1/2 ton Chevy that I need to check to see if they will fit on my Ford.
Sorry for using the C word...

im sure if you insulated it real good with a header wrap or something of the sort as you went through your engine compartment i believe it would still have the effect of a "Cold Air Intake". with the look of your truck i think a snorkel would really set it apart even more than it already is. maybe even through a " who is john galt" decal on the tube outside the fender

im not a big fan of the open filter right where the stock airbox was, but my OE box was all broken so i needed something and my budget at that time said this is what i was getting

on a side note i really just need this engine to hold together long enough that i can go back to ohio and grab my 06 engine thats sitting at my parents place. that was supposed to be the engine i build for this thing while i wait for my 04 engine to give up the ghost.

im really hoping my cap was just bad and the coolant was overfilled. i dont really feel like dropping $2200 in parts just to keep an engine i wanna use as a table running

Anyway, I got stuck and couldn't get out. Only place to latch on was 130ft. Behind me. If not for the winch being on the back, not sure how long I would have been there. Wasn't very many people on the trail that day.

So I figured I might as well throw one in there also. Cost me about another $1500 (winch, rope, fairlead, wire, and shackle), but I don't care. I'm sure someday I'll use it.

yea i have always heard of great ait temp reductions with a good snorkel but i cant seem to find one for the 6.0 and face it with all the stupid sensors and compiuters and harness issues ...well it would really only be good fro iat temps and nothing more without some seriousl redesign on the ecu and harness and high temp silicone on every sensor and it aint worth it...if i want ed to build a deep crossing rig i would start with a unimog
and on the "who is" front i do have a plate frame for the rear complete with added org sticker

i have had winches for years and have only used them for my self a couple times...
the rear winch is nice but most times i can get em out with a good strap or the front winch depending on whats easier... i only needed a rear once because i was trying to pull a guy up a hill and back onto the road where he went off and he was pulling my truck over the edge instead of his up so i had to hook the rear winch to hold my truck in place and then front winch him up and back onto the road...
but as far as winches i kinda figure its like a gun
i would MUCH rather have one and not need it than need one and not have it
oh and i DO off road a lot hell i live on dirt roads out in the forest great for a nice place to live but it sucks for keeping the truck clean

A clean truck is a truck that does not get used.

^^^^^THIS is the sole reason I bought chains for the F250. I have been stopped and checked one time ever by CHP near Yosemite. They were not letting anyone go without 4x4 AND carry chains.

maybe it is the obvious off road builds i do but i have never been anything but waved through...
except once in the caddy but that dont count
so chains for 34 to 35" tires....
anyone know of any deals out there or even agood place to look?
i should still have a back pack eith chains for my old 33 12's from my old toyota that would probably fit the 34's i am running for winter right now... but no idea where they are, or rather if they are where i think they are i would have to move too much chit to get at them to make it worth while right now.
