Gotcha, whenever I get to that time, I'd really like to send them to carolina if the guy has time to do it, Gearhead, with the machining sticky on here works at a shop that does pretty much only 6.0 so I know it'll get done right, just don't know if it'll be cheap ha
What guy in carolina?

Machining sticky in the 6.0 section
Eh.. Idc that much. Im here on my phone so searching is a b****. But I have lots of contacts in Carolina and I know which ones are good and which ones will cost more in the long run. Ill be more careful with the questions I ask.

ordered a lift kit for the front to "level the truck out"... well turns out the lift kit netted me a total of 3 inches. so now i'm going to order a rear lift block as well because it sits 1/2in taller in the front



does anyone know for a 1 inch lift block, will i need new U bolts?

I have a set of 3" top gun customs blocks sitting in my garage! No u-bolts but for $50 they are yours!

shipped to Colorado? (80017)

I might do that (and correct me if I am wrong) but the factory 2005 F250 block is 2 inches... and if I am trying to get a 1inch lift, then I can just remove the factory block and install this new block and use my stock U bolts instead of stacking a 1 inch block on top of the factory 2 inch block.

so i got a little bored today on my day off and decided that i wanted to make a barrier to secure the groceries and whatever misc items i dont want sliding around in my bed.... and i decided that i didnt want to go to Lowes or Home Depot...


but i also wanted something that would fold and be put away in my truck cab when not in use.... so.... here's what i came up with.. it took 2 minutes and 2 pieces of wood and a single nail and hammer...... i know.... pretty complicated.

I have a question for you guys. How strict is VA with its diesel emissions and inspection? What can you have and can't have to pass or fail? I'm gonna be registering my truck down there

depends on what part of VA youre in.



up in NOVA you'll need an emissions test etc.... you'll have to have have a cat and a muffler for sure and you cant blow black smoke or anything.

but the inspection is just visual... so if you want to do a hollowed out cat / pseudo muffler i'm sure you could get away with it.

in Hampton Roads area- I always got away with just tossing my stock cat on (no muffler) and getting inspected. (then I just took it off afterwards)

Hey guys, I am going to be moving from Washington and am moving to Virginia at the end of this month. I was wondering if you all have any GTGs or know of anything good going on around February/March timeframe. I am also looking to join your Chapter as I leave Washington.
