Looking at the grill on the truck I'm guessing its pre-05 so its a 2 valve motor?

Whats the trans plan? Gonna run one of the 2 4R100's? Rebuild one of them with strong bits? ZF6? Other? Too early?
yes the parts truck is a 2v but so is his 5.4 so that will make it a nice easy swap. plan is to run the 4r100 as thats what he has no so wont have to change anything. he got the truck running but has a miss and he has changed all the coils. for now it will sit and wait till after Insanity fab as just dont want to chance running into issues with the swap when the 5.4 is race ready

snowracer got out again this weekend and hit up one of the better trails around our area. hit snow part way up the trail so made it more challenging for sure. other then truck throwing codes in the morning and braking the driver side door glass truck did well and no issues.

snowracer he got the truck back together. new shocks mounts and over motor brace, TMR machined knuckles with full hydro and new bump stops.





with the ram mounted up high he had to move the trac bar bracket but actually for the better as its flatter now. bump stops off the back of the truss and tied into lower link mounts





took it out and steering worked well



07-05-2019 07:16 PM
bobbywalter good job hanging he thing out to dry...
07-04-2019 03:30 PM
old army .45 Awesome, all of it!

I love my v10!
07-04-2019 03:15 PM
snowracer even with the brake on the last course his time from first day we good enough to get 2nd place in big tire for the weekend and fastest big tire pass in the second course.







he washed the truck the other night and looks like both front bump stops are missing. coil over looks ok but will have to pull coils and check to make sure shaft is ok. he was talking to me this morning about air bumps so that might happen soon. still has to get around to putting all his full hydro parts on that he has as well. he was talking about needing more power so i have been trying to talk him into a V10 swap
07-04-2019 03:07 PM
snowracer proved that pigs can fly









then found out what happens when you air out 7000 pounds and beat on it non stop. upper coil over mount busted off the tube. one side the weld failed but other side it ripped the tab in half. he didnt even know it had happened till the coil over pulled the mass air flow wiring and killed the truck

snowracer day 2 we ran the back field course first and he got fastest pass of the weekend in big tire class











went hard in the infield to finish the day





07-04-2019 02:28 PM
snowracer put some new brake hoses on and did a once over and truck looked good so loaded up and we headed to Tail Creek Mud and Music in Alberta


first course we ran was the infield that is rocks, logs, and mud.











second course of the day was hills and through trees with some go fast parts





in the mine field in the back section. large dirt whoops and holes
