Your truck looks pretty damn clean for being in Ohio. Do you drive this in the winter as well ?

Yes I drive it year round, it just rolled over 190k miles. The rockers are colormatched rhino liner from the body line down, I get mixed opinions on this but I like it because you dont see chips dents or scratches. There is a spot of rust from bad bodywork from previous owner on bed so the truck will eventually get new front fenders and bedsides and lose the plastic flares.

Auto part Vehicle Car Engine Automotive fuel system

I did the resonator delete for $2.97 with a rubber pipe end cap from Menards until I get the wcfab turbo intake horn installed (doesn’t fit with stock egr system). Also shown is the turbo heat shield I had to convert to a two piece in order to remove it (will not come out in one piece I tried). That will be removed in favor of turbo heat blanket!

Underneath is solid but has surface rust all over, that cross member will get some work when i remove the bed for bodywork and im doing a shock relocation with either single or dual bilstein 5100s, getting rid of the staggered shocks and will add t-bars to prevent wheelhop.
