    Yeap i was thinkin of selling my truck but then i was like no thats stupid i anit doing that id rather just by a street beast truck and have my offroad beast. I was going to sell it cuz the ifs leaking and it was running like [censored]. I think that was just some bad gas so instead i put it on the lift and dropped the ifs in about 4 hours with 2 20 min breaks. Replaced a seal and put it all back up in 1 hour. everything is so much faster going back on and after you know where everything is from taking it out. so thats all good now not leaking then to test it out i got a call from shawn saying dustin is stuck and almost rolled his truck when the mud caved in underneath the front right tire. The smaller trucks(yota,rangers,jeeps) never learn to take a fullsize out there incase they get stuck. Ive had to go pull them out so many times im like a offroad tow truck. I also took out the stablizer bar b/c it was shot anyway and the truck does fine taking turns at 50-70mph not much if any body roll. Also took the dual elect. fans out in place of a hi po clutch fan with 7 blades. Im going to put the big elect. fan back on just for use offroad to make sure its all cool.
