What did you do to your 6.7 this week?

Train horns. For safety ya know? When Prius driving slow-pokes want to get on the freeway at 40mph and I am running around 39,000 lbs and 54í long, train horns seem like the solution. Now I can wake them before it becomes a problem. I went with WOLO polar express horns. WOW! Are they loud!

92sho16 Put 4 inch blocks on today, after putting a 1.5" leveling kit on the front it had a bit of lean towards the back. Next up some 295/65 All terrains.

redxjer I added airbags to the rear and the wireless one compressor system. Stiffened the ride a smidge, but it is so much nicer towing now.

16Dually All new Bilstein 5100's all around including the steering damper. All 4 Rancho shocks were shot very little to no resistance, but they had 136K on them so I expected them to be junk. Stock damper was still pretty solid but changed it anyway.

18M_RWR Have been getting a P0170 code pop up the last 4x drove the truck. Found a thread on here that TSB 16-0134 was issued to fix it. So took it into local Ford dealer Saturday morning. They updated the PCM, TCM & GPCM to latest level and only took them an hour. So far no code and all is good.

Powder coat Powder coat Powder coat.... good quality shops can cooor march to the point that a layman wouldn’t see a difference in color, only texture. Aaaaaannnnnnndddd, powder coat will withstand rock chips so much better....

My other suggestion is those spray on liners like Line-X. Those can be color matched exactly and would be perfect for bumpers....

My 2 cents

HeavyAssault @myduty : That's a awesome look you have going on!! Nice work.

Here's my thoughts: Powdercoat needs to be done by the right people. Powdercoat tends to be a bit more durable, it will pit/ding/chip if hit hard enough. Color will not match but I'm sure the right place using the right power can get it damn close.
Automotive paint can be done just about anywhere but needs to be done right. Not as durable but holds it's own for the most part. OEM stuff is automotive paint. It will chip/pit/ding a bit easier over powdercoat. Color can/will be spot on matching the truck.

I'd say the automotive paint would be easier to touch up over the powdercoat. Powdercoat will be more durable but not match 100% if your OCD can handle that. Your call.

BTW Ruby Red is a stunner!!! My 2015 Platinum in Ruby Red always gets great comments about how it looks.
