Whats that like 120k miles? lol jk jk.
Yeah yeah I know... 250 actually.
not the most but really I haven't had to do that much to it... injectors yes, water pump sure, pump rub, took care of that before it was a problem. Ball joints one side only and that was cause I drove over a whisky barrel flower pot!
Trans has never been looked at ,other than oil and filter changes... front wheel bearings are still original.
New set of 255/85/16 Toyo M55s
Waited since October for them to get here.
Size difference between new and old 285/75/16s Max was helping.
Looking forward to your thoughts on the Toyos. My Dueler 285/75-16 tires are getting a bit beat, and I was thinking of doing something similar. But looking at them side by side, and knowing that my existing tires pushed the limits on non-cutting clearance, I wonder how these will clear, and how you will like them on that truck.
Love them...that is my third set of 255s on this truck I`ve had a set of 235/85/16s two sets of 285/75/16s all m55s the last set I just took off where 285/75/16 Toyo open country, not a big fan of them.
The 255s are my favorite!
My truck is lifted two inches, the 255s don`t rub at all...they are narrow...cut through the snow real nice too.
Back rolling steelies and pizza cutters? I like it.
Yeah, I have no lift, an no interest in lifting, so those might be a bit much for mine. But the Duelers just have no street life, and I'm thinking I may try some of these next time. May just have to go with 235s.
Picked up a rust free box Yesterday!
Dropped this off for some bad cop on the way out to get the box.
We did about a 600 klm round trip towing the k10 out to Edmonton than driving another 1.5 hours north east to Smoky Lake for the box.
We left home with a full tank and when we got to Ponoka UFA to fuel up the truck took on 96.8 litters of fuel. I holds 98! LOL!
I did have 20 litters in a jerry can in the box just in case but didn`t need it.
Truck did great but I programed it back to factory tune for the trip just as a test...it was gutless! Tune will go back it today!
We also got a nice clear head light assembly to replace Colbys faded one on his 01 and I got a New console for my 02.
Does he need more junk?
Doesn't everybody!? Lol.
The turd burgler. Such a pretty truck, I couldn't pass it up.
Thanks again for bringing that up here!
That's Brownie McTurd! Lol!
Washed it this morning and noticed a broken shock mount in the back. A peace of square tube and a chop saw for a temporary fix and she rides much better again.
Good thing you saved that bolt! Do you have wrenches salvaged from the Titanic to go with the bolts from the Titanic?
You need a wire brush!
Lol! Looks worse in the pic than it is... mostly dirt and Wd40.
I'll make it pretty when we swap the box.
Is the box really that bad? Looks good from behind my computer.
All under the flares are rotten, the inner liners are gone the floor by the tail gate has holes your foot can go through on both sides.
Plus the passengers side has a kink in it from when I hit a light pole. Not worth fixing it.
