Thanks. Now to start doing some rust repair and body prep for paint!
And I may spring for a shiny chrome exhaust tip/end/stack.
They sell 4" to 6" exhaust stacks that would be perfect for replacing the rear 36" of exhaust. Just to look badass of course.

Would look awesome paired with the naked lady mudflaps. Maybe some chrome spikes to cover the lugs.

In my exhaust browsing I came across something interesting. Ryder sells truck parts. Their prices on exhaust parts are by FAR the lowest I've found.
I'm gonna order a 4" to 5" adapter piece and a 5" chrome stack with downturn end. It will look really NICE. Should be around $75 on Ryder fleet products' site.

I'd be happy with a 20 hp bump and some cooling improvements for 70 mph cruising.
Oh and one of these days maybe we'll figure out the CC.

did the CC die again today?

im working on cooling ideas.. was 84 here today and I went up to 207 on the freeway at 65.. maybe thats normal??

the closer i watch the computer im getting to be inclined that internal lcak of circulation is the issue... either internal clogged rad or water pump.

the weather is gonna suck in ohio when im up this time so its gonna be a short trip up.. (jus tthe funeral and a business meeting or 2).. then back here.. so I cant dig in real deep yet on the cooling.. but im going to hopefully start some research into parts and install..

maybe im just too damn sensitive about it... the ford 7.3 guys are running 205 thermostats in theirs and see Oil temps over 220 regularely... and here im uptight about seeing an engine temp of 212 and oil of 214...

Thats funny driving buses around. My wife drove ours to work today because my van battery was dead and her car was out of gas.

Jeep, bus, repeat.
