After a nice trip out to the east coast for Vacation, it is time to start planning the build. But with winter coming and promises of a good snow fall this year, a new set of shoes for the truck are on top of the list.
( photos to follow when I find them)
A few things I noticed over the winter was that the air dam on the front bumper would sound like it was being torn off every time there was slush or snow on the roads. Also the truck with only the V6 liked to break the rear tires loose, and was in need of some more weight. 300 pounds of sand bags stacked behind the rear wheels seemed to bolt the truck to the road and traction was great.
With spring came a few changes to the truck, nothing major but first was the air dam.
With the dryer weather I was able to crawl under the truck, and do so real thinking. You know the bottom of the Air Dam sits 10 to 12 inches "BELOW" the top of the skid plate and 6 to 8 inches below the bottom of the skid plate. One snow bank or mud puddle and I'll be buying a new Air Dam.
Now I feel better driving down a trail to go fishing..
