The amazing before and after:
01-15-07 Just repaired the clutch last spring, but now had to pull the transmission again to rebuild the ol NV3500. Used a few upgrades on the inside, nothing spectacular, just mainly new bearings and seals. Runs GREAT once again! :)
03-24-06 The fun never ends! Replaced my clutch this past weekend. Its almost worth the money to have someone else do it! Nah, it wasn't too bad. But it runs pretty well again. No more babying the clutch!
02-06-06 New off-road pics and videos on Pg 2! Always tons of fun. I took off my winter rims and installed the summer rims. Winter rubber is about shot, and I needed as much traction as I could get for the Mud. Check it out!
12-02-05 Catco High Flow Catalytic converter installed: Very cool! I also reluctantly installed my tailpipe again.. The sound with the old 3" turndown setup was awesome, but I guess I grew tired of the windows, door panels, mirrors and dash shaking and vibrating at idle or any other RPM for that matter. Hopefully by spring I'll have the tailpipe re engineered with a swept back angle and a larger tip. It runs alot better now, even with the stock tailpipe back on.
11-28-05 Finally a pictorial update. Both front and rear bumpers have been sprayed with bedliner, along with my bedrails, and ironicly, the inside of the bed, too. My Catco high flow performance catalytic converter should be here tomorrow, and then it will be installed by this weekend. I've also installed my old ugly stock wheels for the harsh winter season.
11-14-05 I'll snap some pics soon. Water pump repaired. Thats not a fun job, but I got it done. I am redoing my exhaust with a new high flow Cat and, the same Flowmaster 40, and a large tailpipe of some sort. Front tow hooks and rear bumper D rings are installed, and very cool.
10-19-05 I'm lacking in updates and pictures, but they're coming. The Dak is laid up in the garage waiting on me to get the new water pump installed (it finally gave out on me the other day!). I picked up some 10,000lb chrome tow hooks for the front, and I'm going to bolt on two 11,000lb D-ring hooks on the rear bumper. And I'm reluctantly going to have to install my winter rims/tires before long. Oh well.
10-7-05 Reinstalled my clear corners with amber bulbs. Water Pump is going bad. You know how it goes.. fix one thing, there's always more..
10-2-05 Oil undercoated the entire truck. I have also refinished my front bumper. I smoothed out all of my dents and such, filled in the front license plate holes, and the two outside holes for the corner braces (eliminated). I finished it in Duplicolor spray-on bedliner and it looks great! Pics will follow.
9-13-05 Body lift has been installed! It's a PA 2" lift I got through Ebay for $70 shipped(!).. I installed it myself in about 8 hrs time with very few setbacks. I only had to replace the brake line that runs from the booster to the frame, and a stubborn rusted front body mount (under the battery tray).. Email me with any questions you have at firstname.lastname@example.org , I'd be more than happy to help you out if you've got body lift questions.
