    Yes thats correct, only lets air out. I found that AFTER I did this mod... Not a big deal, I can always get the right breather from the dealer...

    Thank you!

    First performance mod! Intake, I bought used ebay kind. Its only piece of pipe few couplers, clamps and filter. The only bad thing about it is the filter, which I will eventually replace with a better filter.

    I can't tell if it ads horsepower, BUT it sounds AWESOME!!

    I also got some running boards, to help get me in and out of the truck. Yes they are crappy and wont help on trails, since this is 95% of the time work truck driven on paved roads, they will do just fine...

    Yesterday I picked my tube bumper from Avid Off Road. This bumper is based on the bumper Avid made for OUTKAST (Josh). I have added hoops above the headlights those complete the look and should protect the whole front of my truck. The bumper is made of steel tubing with steel skid plate. It should withstand some serious abuse. The build time was 3weeks, hand build in USA not by little kids in China... I am very satisfied with the quality and fit and finish of the bumper. Thumbs up to Avid!

    Now for some pictures...

    Nice truck,I had a Ford Ranger Trailhead edition which is basically a prerunner and with the locking rear diff I rarely had any trouble in the snow.As long as you keep your momentum up and avoid deep mud a prerunner can take you anywhere a sane person would want to go.That Ranger is twelve years old now and my buddy bought it from me three years ago.It went from being a city truck to a farm truck and he treats it like a half ton,seems to run better with the abuse though,go figure.

    So after reading through these threads I am a 100% positive that I just bought your truck from sullivan motor company! So far I love everything about it as it was a massive upgrade from my recent 97 f150.If you are still in this sight it would be awesome to ask you a few things about this truck. :D
