Default Pics of my tow rig

Here are some pics of my tow rig. I don't have a trailer right now... I have since bought a new brake control. It is the Primus, which is made by Techonsha and is basically one step below the prodigy.

Thanks! Yea, it moves pretty good. I haven't ran it at the track yet because I am waiting on a pressure relief valve for the fuel rail and then I have to install the kennedy diesel lift pumps.

Right now though, according to the Attitude monitor I am running a 14.3 in the 1/4.

next big impulse buy will have to be a trans upgrade :)

Give me a shout when you get it. I'm headed to Ohio Wed/Thurs but can help wrench depending on timing... I've got the itch for a new Grand too. ;)

They are 285/75 R16's Bridgestone Dueler AT REVO's. They measure out to a 33. I had to crank up the torsion bars on the front and trim the front valence so I could turn.
THe tires that come on these trucks stock are just WAY to small

I don't really remember how many turns, but I brought the front end up about 1.5 inches.
