thanks, yeah, if i go LT it'll definitely be $$$$$$. i might turn this into a pre runner truck and get a 4x4 chevy or taco or ford and make it into something of a EXPO rig. what type of jobs you been doing? last year over summer i worked for a friend keeping a apartment complex up to code and looking good, now im working for another friend gardening.
i bet i could easily spend 10k on this truck in a month if someone handed me the money.

mowing. dog/ house sitting. that kinda shit. my idea is, turn the í07 into kinda expo truck. just because it will tow nice and all. i know most do a high clearance rear but iím not going to. just a bolt on with tire swing. if i can get a real job, i may over this guy right down the road 1800 for an early 80ís pic up. has SFA and a flat bed on it. i think it runs ok. not 100% sure itís 4x4. but would ask and see what milage is and all. and just have it as a weekend beater and end up building a full exo cage and all. would trailer it most places.

yep, nope.
i think how i adjusted it it's not giving enough braking force to the rear making the front brakes to much for the grip in dirt.

it probably doesn't help that the last owner pulled the ABS fuse.

with the bracket the rear brakes should work better. i think you may have gone up too high for the amount of rear lift though only looks like 1.5. and i dont think your truck had abs. mines a 98 and doesnt have it

ooohhhh yeah, sorry i'm a little tired. once i rebuild the leafs it should be about right.

good to know, come to think of it i didn't see any abs sensors when we swapped the spindles, i only saw the empty spot in the fuse block.

Think twice before you get rid of your campershell man. they might not be the coolest thing on the market, but they at weight on your back tires, and if it rains you have a place to dry place to stay for as long as needed.

This is mine

i took mine off but i'm gonna keep it just incase i need it, i do like the weight of it, right now i have a sheet of 1/4'' steel in the bed to give it some weight.
i like your setup, does the carpet make it any more comfortable?

Actually yeah it does. I have slept in the back of my truck a few times. it beats sleeping in a tent. dont have to worry about setting it up and in the morning the sides arnt wet with dew. the carpet also helps trap in heat.

If you add a spacer lift, your UCA's are going to max out and you will break balljoints unless you add a spacer for them as well.

Don't do a 3.4 swap, if you're going to do the transition jump to a v8.

On the BPV, the higher up the rod is set, the braking power to the rear will be increased which is good. I cut mine off and zip tied it up as if my truck was under a full bed load.

Shoot man if you want to sell that camper shell I may buy it if I don't run my spares in the TT style.

i decided not to do the spacer unless i can't find some fenders.

i'm not sure what i'm gonna do, i might just rebuild the 2.4 and turbo it when we move.

i still need to fiddle with that but i haven't driven my truck enough to figure out where i need to adjust it.

i don't think i'm gonna sell it,if we move i think i'm gonna throw it on there so i don't have to worry about tarps.
if i did sell it you wouldn't want it, it's pretty ratty from getting used like a work truck.
