3 years in the making so far, and so many more mods to come!
It always strings at first I bet it was a rough ride with those wide offset tires.

Yeah they were mud masters, and I thought they were fine on the highway...until I got these Pro Comps. Bumpy, rutted out roads I used to avoid are child's play now.

She doesn't look as mean, but out here in Idaho she still stands out. The only other blue 2nd gen is bone stock, so nobody gets us mixed up haha

Thanks man! It's always fun running thru mud holes, most of the time in 2WD, and never worrying about making it out. Not as much fun cleaning up afterwards...but the beer I drink while cleaning makes it worth it!


And just got some tow hooks in the mail from Wh1t3nukle and I'll take this moment to throw some praise his way. The hooks themselves are definitely in great shape, can't wait to get em on the truck! And the customer service was awesome--dude offered help with anything I might need and made a prompt delivery of the goods. If you see him around the forumz show him some love!

thanks! i'd get her covered in mud again to get some action pics out of it, but unfortunately most of my buddies have been sent elsewhere or have separated thanks to all of the financial uncertainty that now comes with being in the service.

I'll be sure to update with some pics after I get these tow hooks in place, and maybe I'll find a mild hole to tear through to get some action shots!

Talking

Got some new gear!

Dropped the truck off at the shop while I went out of town for Christmas, and came back and she's got some new goodies. Replaced most of the steering components with HD parts off a 98 2500. New tie rods, sway bar end links, relocated the steering stabilizer, got a HD track bar, and a steering box brace. Gotta ride her out for a few days and let everything settle, then go get it aligned and I'll update how she handles!

Also, got the tow hooks that I scored from Wh1t3knucle put on and they look pretty good! Come out right below the bumper like on the ORE Rams, so they look completely stock which is nice. Also had some leaks fixed (got the front pinion resealed and the t-case resealed), nothing major, just maintenance.

I'll have pics of the new front end here in a bit, cameras dead right now. And tonight I'll snag some pics of the Duallys in action.
