Got the factory downpipe out and the MBRP 3” Downpipe installed today. It sucked. Getting the dipstick in/out was a pain. I also haven’t ever removed my heat shield over the turbo, so I got it out of there. You pretty much have to destroy it. My band clamp was positioned on the bottom at the top of the downpipe, so I had to remove an electrical panel on the drivers side of the turbo to gain access to the band clamp bolt. All n all it’s just a lot of uncomfortable positions I had to contantly put my body in (like lying on the engine) and now it definitely hurts. Ha. But I got it finished! No leaks!

Feels good to have that downpipe job behind me. I ended up finding my fuel filter head was leaking. I purchased an o ring/seal rebuild kit which fixed that right up! Super easy fix this morning before coming into work. Now she's parked in her spot at the office:

Haven't finished my traction bars yet. I know, I know. I'm not happy about it either. We recently had our new baby girl so I've been a little preoccupied. Hoping to find time before winter hits. For now, here are some recent photos. Can anyone guess their location?

Finally, I was able to accomplish quite a few things this weekend. I got my traction bars welded up into place and the TransGo Jr kit installed. I can definitely put the power down now!

Spent the weekend in Wyoming and had a beautiful campsite within Grand Teton National Park. Views were spectacular!

In preparation for winter, I've mounted a receptacle for plugging in my block heater.

Been putting the truck through the paces this winter! No new modifications lately. I've only put on new Duratracs.

Cab lamps installed!

Got the cab lamps installed this week! Also gave the wheels a much needed spring polishing. Well deserved high five from my helper, Oakley!
