Some twit would probably pay that for it. It includes a huge amount of negotiating room.

so .. steering box is working out nicely
...'cept,
now I can feel everything wrong in the front end..
so...
on the way
4 new control arms
4 new shocks ..for lowered truck
braided stainless front brake hoses
braided set of three rear brake hoses and a stainless steel hard line for the axle

ordering today..
tie rod ends
the front stainless hard line kit
and the stainless hard line kit for along the frame rail

end of month .. after I have the brake lines done.. I'm replacing both rear springs .. one's had a busted leaf for a little too long

C notch kit arrived monday.. though it's the last job.. fixing the frame where the axle's crushed it .. being lowered without the notch kit..
- but waiting until springs are done.. which will lift the truck .. which will offer some more space to work without pulling the box off

then... I gotta get a good southern box .. but I think I found one in buffalo.. just gotta be able to go across to get it..only a few miles away from the border to pick it up at the guys shop..

so .. gotta do a buffalo shuffa-low box swap ..lol

my Dad's old truck turns twenty this month .. and turns 377 000 km by month's end too...

still runs like the day he picked it up .. but my 95 grand marquis had almost 600 000 k's and drove perfectly when scraped..

next year .. new gas tank .. fuel lines and trans lines..
then I start lookin fer a cab..

ah and my silicon upper n lower rad hoses arrived last friday... top ones on .. gotta do the bottom but I want heater hoses too while things are dumped out in the bucket..

original top hose has had a nice notch worn in it by the support bracket been that way for years...decided, like the brake lines... TIME FOR A CHANGE..

LMC has new coolant jugs .. so considering nice new clean one for the buck and a quarter it 'ill end up costing me
gonna do a new brake reservoir too..same reason.. clean.. new.. better...lol

and .. new wiper blades.. with an upgrade to a longer driver's side wiper .. there was clearance for another 4 inches of wiper.. so I can see better .......and more..

and from Jegs racing..a new alternator.. same cost as the one I had put in two years ago but with free chrome upgrade and HOPEFULLY a bearing that don't whine like a supercharger all the time..
used to be only when cold but this spring the noise didn't go away..so it goes to the alternator guy for bearings and goes in the spare parts box fer latter
