Drove the new one around for the weekend. Put the summer shoes on the old one and inspected the brakes. Next project is to replace the new outer tie rod end that burst a boot. The part will be free but I'll need to pay for another alignment. :-/

Got rid of that god forsaken stock CD player and installed a new head unit. I didn't get a thousand dollar unit that someone would want to steal. It's a $77 Sony XPlod I picked up at a discount stereo shop in Gresham, Oregon. It's got an MP3 hook up and a CD player, hat's all I care. The remote will remain under the seat because it just doesn't make sense.
I also mounted my CB, but still need to get an antenna and mount. At least it off the kitchen table and my wife is happy now.

Did the throttle cable mod.

Even though my truck is new, I still had room for one medium sized zip-tie with a little bit of slack left in the cable.

I was skeptical about what it could do on a new truck, but decided to try it anyway.

It works. Definately gives the impression of quicker throttle response, and easier transmission kickdown at highway speed.

Nothing much this time. Just a short run to other side of town, on a railroad photography
trip. Gotta get my train fix too!!
Next up though, are new 31's, probably this Thursday AM after work.
About 2 weeks ahead of schedule!

Set up an appointment first thing Thursday morning.
Getting new shoes put on truck! Getting a set of Falken
Rocky Mountain ATS 31/10.5.
With this, major mods are done.
Seats, minor body work, and maybe paint are all I have left to do.
