when i picked up the truck the fuel sensor was broken. the fuel gage on the dash read empty. the dealership got the part in and replaced it but it wasn't the right part. the part they need was on back order until the middle on jan. i bought the truck at the end of nov. and the part just came in this week. i ran the truck out of fuel, because the dealership told me it had a full tank of diesel when i bought it. turns out it only had a quarter of a tank when i drove it off the lot. they had to tow it in and fill it up with fuel, it has been a pain(huge inconvienence). i was gaging my fuel on mileage and the fact that i had a fuel tank of fuel. the dealership says the body company must have broke something when installing the body. the dealer should never have let me drive the brand new truck away with a broken part. i guess that was partly my fault i should have called them on it.

Although a definate headache, I guess it was a minor problem when you consider the complex mechanics and systems of the truck. I was worried it was an engine or tranny problem. Glad you got it fixed.

Nice trucks, GLS how do you like those TTT mirrors?

We really like the TTT mirrors. The width is great - we can see around our 8' wide enclosed trailer easily. The size of the mirror surface is good too. And the convex spot mirror works really well-for blind spots and when trailering you can use it as a curb checker. I also think they look pretty good for a towing mirror, I like the clearance marker/turn signal option as well. I would definitely buy them again. The only thing I can think of to improve them would be power extend (a reliable power extend) because it's easy to forget to pop them in/out.

Here's a better pic of the mirror if anyone was wondering what they look like. Couldn't find any without the dog

I noticed a few pics of black smoke exiting thru the exhaust when you hammer it. I must be missing out on something- I just put a SilverLine 304 turbo back dual outlet sytem under my 07 f350 with cold air induction and I'm not even close to what I'm seeing:confused:

If you want to make your stoke blow some smoke you have to get some kind of box to increase the fuel so that the excess fuel burns off as smoke, just remember the more fuel you have the more air you need to keep the truck running cool. I would look at some sort of edge box and an air intake.

It actually wasn't. Its original owner was the gas company and it had a regular dump body on it that was all rotted out, so the flatbed dump was installed. The gas company purchased that size wheel base due to the fact the truck was used in the city alot and they needed a small truck to get around.

I put the leaf loader on around mid October and leave it on until I finish up with cleanups around December. Its not too bad driving with it, you just have to be cautious because you do have a blind spot with the tube sticking up in front of you. I had a smaller leaf loader mounted on the back of the truck prior to this one and it wasn't the best method for me. I like it mounted this way because you can pull right up to piles and see where your going. Its also beneficial with long piles when you have someone driving the truck and someone running the loader, just makes it easier.

Yup, all the big three do that a lot with the diesels, '98 you could get a 12v shortbed dodge, no shortbed cummins before then, but its kinda rare. Then with ford you could get a 03 7.3 which is also rare, they do it a lot for all differnt changes they make, there wasnt even a '98 model year ford diesel, gm is doing the same with the 07's the early model year is the classic body style and 07.5's will be the new bodystyle with the LMM engine, Theres lots of things about trucks that give away there models

02Duramax- Yeah, I had to do the "Poor Man's Lift".:) I wanted to put a susp. lift on, buy I plow snow so it would have been too much fabrication to make it work-safely. I installed index keys and cranked the t-bars. They are not maxed out, but I turned them several times. Then I put a 1" block in the back to level it out. If you look close you can see where I shaved the plastic air dam in the front. It used to go straight down, now it angles, but it's clean-looking. I used a Dremel on it. I put a strong plastic zip tie through each of the wheel liners to pull those flush against the body. I never had to shave or cut anything metal, and it doesn't rub at all, even on full turns hitting a bump. It is very close though! After I did all this, it made the ride much worse because my factory shocks were maxed out, so I put Bilsteins all around. It rides as good or better than stock now. If you're interested in doing this, I'd just buy the "leveling kit" that they make for our trucks. www.performanceproducts.com, and other places sell them. They come with the index keys and the Bilstein shocks that fit. I'm not sure if there's a block for the rear included or not. I did mine before they offered this kit.

Just remember to get an alignment done afterwards if you end up cranking your t-bars. It does make it harder on the front end, specifically the cv joints. This isn't the most practical way to fit bigger wheels and tires, but when you have IFS and plow snow, you don't have a lot of options. I don't care for body lifts. Hope this helps!:drinkup:

That picture is actually old, taken right after i bought the truck. First stop after I picked truck up was the tire shop to take the stock banana peel michelins off and put them on. Loved the tires, but didn't wear worth a crap. Got 20k out of them, i know have BFG's on same size, and so far so good, but have not much towing with them like i do in the summer other than hauling toys around (snowmobiles).

Hi Dozerman,
I have the same truck, and have been searching out the ideal tire size and rim for it with the TRUXXX 3 inch key lift in the front with 1 inch blocks in the rear.

I like the way your truck looks, but the guys at the tire places don't leave me with a lot of confidence that they know what they're talking about on offset and back spacing.
Do you know what offset and backspacing you have? So many wheels that I like have various specs and I don't want to end up with the wheels poking out and looking rediculous.

I'm going to go with 18 inch wheels and the 325/60 18 that you use.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Impelled- The backspacing is 5 with a 0 offset. If you read my other post, it tells how I made them fit. It wasn't easy, but I'm glad I bought them. Any trimming of the plastic air dam that your truck needs I would do yourself. Someone else may butcher it. Just take your time with a rotary tool. Also, make sure you get an alignment afterwards

I love the look and the stance that this set up will give our trucks, but it will cause the front end componets to wear quicker. I've replaced tie rods, idler arms, etc... I do plow snow too (not with these wheels though), and that doesn't help with the wear. If I were you, before you add these parts, I would invest in an aftermarket steering upgrade. I know www.kennedydiesel.com and www.offroadunlimited.com offer different kits, and I'm sure there are more. They consist of heavier parts with braces for certain places. Guys who have them say they are worth it. I'm going to get a kit soon. They are pricey, but I think you'll save money in the long run.

I'm actually selling my tires if you might be interested. I need a mud terrain tire because I take mine to different jobsites a lot that have no roads. The A/T's are a great all around tire, just not what I need. I'm was planning on putting them on Ebay in a few days. They have a lot of life left. I have different tires/wheels that I use in the winter. If you might be interested, just shoot me a PM. If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

Here's an updated pic. The above picture was taken the day I brought it home. Since then I've put nearly 15k miles and added: front end leveling kit, Moto Metal 16X8 wheels, Toyo Open Country 285 A/T's, factory towing mirrors and a lot of diesel.

I still love this truck and have had no problems with it in 15k miles and 13 months.

Here is a pic of my 07 Duramax with the Allison Automatic. I plan on getting different tires and rims eventually. I use to have a Dodge Cummins that was for the most part loaded. I had a 6.5 Diesel Chevrolet before that.

How long have you had the A/Ts on it? I heard from a guy that the A/Ts tended to dart around a little so he went with the M/Ts and that solved it. Maybe it was just a bad set of tires or just the way his truck is set up? (He has a Dodge) I'm looking at the same size Toyos for my Ford but am undecided on A/T vs. M/T.

a/t's are good as long as their not bfg. they make good mud tires but their all terrains hold the rocks and throw on your truck about 30 miles per hour. and they wear really fast. my next set will be nitto all terrains.

The BFG AT's do throw stones but in my experience they wear faily well. The Nitto's I had did not last too long at all. They are a decent tire but I would not expect to get a lot of miles out of them.

Yeah, I've got BFG right now and am looking at the Toyos specifically. The Nittos are nice, I think they are made by Toyo, but the Toyo MT look a little tougher. The Terra Grapplers are tough but I don't know if you can get them in a 285 in Load Range E which is a must for my rig. The specific set of toyo MT I have put my eyes on the sidewall of are load range E.

you dont like 305's? i will go for a/t's next time. i have mud tires now, and am tired of em. too noisy. i do like toyos, and nittos. either way, their pretty good tires.

I hear the Toyo Open Country M/T is pretty quiet. I've looked at them and the tread looks like it would be quiter than most mudders.

I think the 305s would look nice but how big a change can I make from stock size before I affect my grunt, mileage, etc? Also, I am unsure if the 305s can be had in the 10 ply, which I consider mandatory.

TXNSLighting
10-25-2007, 05:42 PM
my last 305's were e rated. and had no affect on mileage, or performance. i have 35's now that are e range. ill check out the open country m/t's. maybe ill go with those if their not bad on noise. i tell ya another quiet mud tire is...crap, i forgot the name of it...it starts with an m...danget!

General concensus on the cummins forums is that nittos wear way too fast for the money.

I have 315/70/17 bfg at's on the '03 cummins and they induced a little death wobble on me.

The 315/75/16 mickey thompson at's on the '99 cummins always behaved themselves on the highway and show little wear after 20,000 miles or so. These are great on road tires.

SiteSolutions
10-25-2007, 07:31 PM
The more I think of it, I would rather have the 315s, they're basically a 35" tire... but will that fit under a stock F-350 FX4?

I will check with the tire man to make sure they're E rated; they can carry like 3860 pounds each but that's no guarantee they're 10 ply. Rocks and nails are a beeyatch.

i have 265 bfg a/t Load range E's and they wear great and can take all kinds of abuse. the only problem i have had is that they get a little vibration in them around 45 to 65 mph. My wife says i am crazy and does not feel it, but i do. I have had them rebalanced 4-5 times and had all four replaced once and it still is there. It may actually be the truck though. I also had bfg a/t's on my last truck and they lasted me almost 62k miles. I doubt that you will see that with the toyo's or nitto's. I will probally put Mich. LTX M/S's on my new dually though. I miss a nice cadilac ride and don't like the look of big tires like that on a dually.

ive go those mickey thompsons m/t's and good gosh! ive still got two of them on the truck after 40,000 miles, and they still have lots of life left. very little wear!

yep, i had 35's on my last 350. fit good. they may do a little rubbing. but if you dont like that, you can put a $270 leveling kit on it. thats what i did, and loved the new ride! much better than stock, for some reason.
