Who else has a hard time drawing the line?
I tend to overdo things, I work and drive in some very desolate places with no cell service and little to no traffic. So when performing work or a project on one of my truck I like to eliminate any potential weak links but admittedly get carried away more often then not.
I was planning to get a new truck but havenít been thrilled with any of the new offerings so decided to keep my 16 and do some things Iíve been putting off like having line-x sprayed on my replacement bumpers and around the bottom of the truck, it goes in next week for that. Iím either going to add some Carli suspension parts front and back or do gears as reverse with the G56, a dual disc, 37s and 3.42s kind of sucks. Iím leaning toward gears to keep the new clutch and driveline happy even tho Iím not sure Iíll love highway RPMs with 4.10s.
Gears/rebuild kits themselves are reasonable and my truck having over 101k and all hard parts stock minus the clutch Iíll want to do balljoints, u joints, wheel bearings and track bar while Iím at it.
Hereís my problem tho, while Iím in there I might as well add an ARB right? If I need onboard air no reason not to get a good compressor so the ARB twin compressor it is. Rather then spend 500 on unit bearings I should delete the cad with a 1 piece passenger axle and add free spin hubs. Putting all this money and work into the front axle iíd better weld on a thuren truss
So a 2k project turns into a 5k+ project pretty quick, most of which I wonít get back when I sell it and isnít worth taking off to sell separately. Anyone else have this problem?
