    The truck is pretty clean. It's far from done. I had to put the old stuff back on. I've got.to.do this again once I get new stuff ordered. Also have to add lower control arm mount bushings to the list so they can adjust the camber after install.
    The rust is beyond a pain in the ass. But I won't buy new so I have to live with it.

    Bought a set of 5100s, and only 1 made the trip. UPS lost the other one somehow. Soni got half my money back after nearly two months of fucking around with them, and I'm hunting for another pair. It's too close to winter now to even bother with putting the 1069s on anyways so I'll dink with it again in the spring. Likely gonna just round up all my bushings and bolts so that I have everything when I go to tackle this mess again.

    Hauled a swingset home with it today. Tandem axle landscape trailer (built heavy duty) and all heavy timber constructed. Truck barely knew it was there. I miss my old Chevy but I'm glad I got this truck to replace it. The green machine would have hated every second towing that trailer.

    And ground issues on this newer crap are a trip and a half. CAN/BUS vehicles are SUPER sensitive. And when they get a reading they don't like it'll send everything into a tizzy.

    When not cupped, I've found the Duratracs to be pretty quiet.

    Bilstein 5100s ordered. To the tune of a thousand bucks. Ouch.

    I hope you're not expecting a weekend delivery or outside of 9-5 M-F.
