Fixed my gas leak today, was wire plug leaking had to tighten clip
Truck still running funny though boggy off the line when you hit it then it takes off after 20 sec or so:dontknow: even changed fuel filter again today

Need to adjust rear shock mounts abit though. At full compression it's 12.5 in eye to eye, shock at full comp is 12.5 in need have room to add 1/2 in in droop so gonna make full comp 13 in eye to eye

135691
No I didn't go under with jack like this, just seeing if shocks were tight at full comp
135692
Notice dry spot under truck, spent some time with tiger torch before starting:D
135693
There's about 2 in clearance at back floorboard tons up front though135694
