    What’s new you may be thinking? The fiberglass visor over the top of the windshield! I have wanted one of these since I bought the truck back in 2009. They are really hard to come by, and stupid expensive when they do come up. Sadly it is not the cool Lund brand with built in lights. Heck it is...

    The truck was originally 3 five foot driveshafts. When I moved the axle and shortened the frame I went to 1 five foot axle and an 18” stubby axle with slip joint and support bearing. I wasn’t too sure about it when I did it, but 90k miles later with no vibration or driveline issues, I am good...

    It is aluminum, 0.125” thick marine grade. There is some angle stock welded on the bottom for strength. I am 200 pounds and it supports me just fine with no flex. Here it is installed Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    At 1800 RPM the engine is pretty darn quiet. I mean no louder than the old Onan. Plus I already carry 110 gallons of diesel.
