That’s awesome! Still haven’t talked with anybody that does heavy hauling with the 10 speed day in and day out. Curious to see what you think of it.

It won’t be used commercially but I’m sure I’ll find an excuse to put a load behind it and see how it does.

I think it needs some markers on the outside of the bumper.

Hoods up already on Tyler's new ride.
I been thinking about what to do to get some more light up front.
Truck will probably get a boxed bumper in the spring, which will definitely have some lights.

A load like an employees broken down semi





Truck probably wouldn’t care, trailer and dot likely wouldn’t be fans though.

She got the first notch in her built yesterday.
Underpowered as all get out considering I've held road speed on grades at 95k in the classic where this was down to 40 mph at 80k lbs

What’s the fix for that?

A tune. Thinking I'm going to try a 550 heavy haul Brakesaver file first. Should be right around 600/2050 at the flywheel.
Eventual plan will be a full tear down to single it out, fire ringed head, bigger injectors, and lower compression cylinder packs. At that point it'll be set to 800 to the ground.

Can't really do much until I get the 10 speed/ clutch out though.

Sounds like a animal

What happened to your other truck? I might have missed it.

Lmao yea, snapped cruising down the road with the cruise set at 68 mph pushing maybe 10-15lbs of boost.
Noticed 10 miles before my fuel stop my oil pressure went from 70 to 55 and was giving some shakes. Popped the hood at Loves and the damper and pulley was shaking all about.
Hoping the main bearings stayed in place and the block is salvageable.
