Moving into cleanup season...

Pushing leaf piles back at our dump location

By ryangall at 2011-12-17

Fairly large leaf pile, two properties that both have numerous mature white oaks in back.

Last one, got some new tires for the Ford. Many they have gotten pricy

Crossing my fingers for some snow, we could really use some white stuff!

Everything looks great. Are those nitto's you got for the ford? I just picked up the same set if there terra's. Great tires.

Did that huge pile of leaves fill up the entire trailer?

Good eye, they are terra grapplers. They seem to perform well, hopefully we get decent miles out of them.

Actually, that pile fit with room to spare! We didn't even have to untarp and stomp them down like we occasionally do.

Nice work. Where does your outcropping come from? We buy a lot of outcropping that looks almost identical to the stuff you use, it comes from either Beuchel or Halquist stone in Wisconsin.

Did u remove the dpf and put a tuner on the 6.4 yet? Never looked back after I did mine, I hated regening while plowing. Mileage and power has increased substantially along with reliability. Id recommend h&s tuners

Not yet on the ford. We just ordered one for the cummins, just have to install it. Got a smarty with egr delete.

We may do the ford if we like how the dodge turns out. Hate to not have warranty, but the regenerating sucks.

We'll have to consider the h&s, we almost went with that for the dodge, but didn't really want a screen in the truck.

Terra Grapplers are great...Ive got 12k on a set and cant even tell they have been driven on. I highly recommend them!

**Also, if you want to tune that Ford...I have a programmer for ya (listed in classifieds), you wont need a delete, and it will still regenerate, but after riding in this guys truck - I would have one...huge difference & wont effect warranty.

I found a mod friendly dealer where all the techs have modified powerstrokes. Mine has a 4" afe ss delete pipe, sb intake and hs tuner, guys have dynoed this combo and gotten 597hp and 1193tq at the wheels. Hs is the top tuner for the 6.4, some guys swear by spartan but the hs are more reliable. I also havea custom kem tune sd card that has a 345 tune that is wicked but i cant run it till i get ladder bars, way too much axle wrap...
