    I have the opposite problem. Mine won’t read over a 1/4. I’ve ohmed the sender and it’s good. I’m guessing the gauge is shit.

    When I bought it I figured it would need a headliner and maybe torque the lug nuts. Yeah there's a fuel line behind that bolt that doesn't stop a drill bit. Taillight and fuel tank wiring is next.

    All bolts and nuts inside the frame rails are welded.

    The 2 1/4" exhaust system didn't fit very well, it was against the fuel tank and close to back of tire. Never been a fan of dual exhaust over the axle.

    After I get it running and the snow melts I will take it to the local muffler shop and have a tailpipe installed with a flowmaster 524553 2.25 dual in /3.00 center out.

    I'm pretty sure the sending unit is dysfunctional. I found some bumpstops I thought sold at the Swapmeet. Lower shock mounts needed little grinding.

    Probably should have, I cleaned out the cracks and filled them with some scabby weld.

    Don't some of the bilsteins mount upside down on these trucks? I don't know I just vaguely remember something like that once.

    I think my bilsteins are mounted body up. There's some debate as which is the correct way. I recently installed Fox 2.0s on my Silverado and they specified body up mounting. Bilstein 5100s are basically the same as the 2.0s so :dunno:

    The boots were on when I took them out of the box, the drain is on bottom of the boot, shit rolls down hill and I can read the writing on the shock when the tires are on the dirt. :screwy:
