    I'm not gonna give up on her, I'm just laid up right now with a broken hip socket, gonna be a couple more months until I'm on the move. Not sure how we're gonna gear up for mowing, probably end up with a zero turn for me :) haha

    Pretty late on the update, but here's the truck so far. Still work to be done but it's to the point that I'm using it, and so far so good! :)

    She has some life left in her yet! A few more things to do, waiting on some steel to make up a bumper, sides, and a headache rack. I'm contemplating an axle ratio change as currently its a 3.55 if I recall correctly and doesn't pull as well as I'd like (I'd like to go to a 4.10 set if I can find some) but that will require some more thought

    4.10s are nice. The 3.73 is a nice split, IMO.

    Yeah that's where the research into that part of the project is going to be key
