Gator1 This was a long time coming, I tried many times to get someone to paint my mirrors, and door handles to match but they're plastic and no one would touch them. They said the paint wont stick for long so, I finally did it with white bedliner. This was my first attempt not too bad, it's still drive able. lol

Broncowilly Hauled this from Iowa back to Oregon. I was grossing about 18,000 pounds. Man I love my 3rd

The truck is a 1934 Dodge Brothers 1-1/2 ton 4X4. Little factoid, the first year Dodge Brothers made a production 4X4.

Evan4300 Waxed it early in the morning before the Mississippi sun came out to destroy all in its path. Went to the store and came back home to let it idle in the driveway and it died. Said wtf and fired it back up with no problem. Noticed a check engine light on, checked codes and it was throwing a p 0148 and p0251. Any ideas? Not sure what forum to go to because all I've checked said there trucks wouldnt fire back up after getting a 251 or they ran like crap. Mine seems to run fine, havent gotten on it though.

Just paid 2.41 myself, itís slowly dropping again, party on! My average across 4 fill ups is 17.2 right now too! Gotta love I loaded highway driving.

I have 285/75 on stock setup (actually lowered 3/4Ē in the rear). I can wait to go back to 285/70, maybe even stock 265/70. The truck has been sloppy since the 285/75. To tall I guess

Zacedward @squigi1 Thanks! Yeah I didnt think it would fit either but I measured before hand and it looked like it would fit and it was not even a squeeze just popped right in there had to find the right mounts I got on Amazon just had to remove my tow hooks kinda sucks but I love that light bar its so bright it was easy install maybe took 1 hour if that to mount and wire it up

I may look into those. My lumber wagon has jarred cavities out of my teeth!

squigi1 Well I didnít do anything to the truck today just finally got the chance to drive it spiritedly unload for the first time since I did the grid heater delete. Only complaint I have is that I never did it sooner idk if itís just in my head or but from the seat test before hand I thought I didnít have any type of tubo lag I was wrong cause now I have absolutely no turbo lag it feels like its instant spool throttle response is phenomenal it responds like a stock N/A 6.1 Hemi I definitely recommend if you live in warm climate like Florida you should delete it

@Zacedward how hard of s squeeze was it to get that bar in there? I didnít even know it was possible to fit those in the stock bumpers hahah (one of the reasons why I did a 4th gen swap) and btw it looks great man!
