Changed fuel pumps back to stock ones since I replaced the blown up highly modified motor and trans with a 65,000 mile stock setup out of my wrecked truck. Decided to take the bed off this time. Did it in 2 hours with some help with the hoists and alignment. That's my neighbor Lucius who helped me. Fuel pressure dropped from 65 PSI to 45 PSI, a lot better. It's still running rich and needs a tune.

Been awhile. Busy summer and fall. But put the truck away for the winter. Hoping to do a few little things to it while in storage.

What's does everyone have planned for their trucks while in storage?
New shoes, J&S Vampire install, plug change for the L.

New hoses for the 4x4 intercooler/heat exchanger, plugs, fuel filter, minor tweaking, and a cleaning.

That should cover the first 2 weeks in storage.....only about 20 more weeks til they are back out! :cry:

Awesome pic.

How many bolts do you need to remove to take the bed off?

Nice!!

Winter Is brutal! I'll probably just do some maintenance. No big upgrades as of now... Last year I said that too and ended up doing the whole Interior😂😂😂
