What kind of fuel milage do you get??

Also did you have to cut fenders and stuff to fit those? Like do they rub when off road or turning?



My motor is freshly rebuilt, bored 30 over, head shaved, new pistons,fuel pump,oil pump,timing set, water pum, ect... Going to get a header and a muffle probably.

I have a Weber, Offenhouser, header, and a lesser known name (same inside as a Flowmaster) muffler. The truck is very loud. Nice sound tone, but very loud. Hard to sneak around late at night. And this is how I always know when my daughter is coming or going. :wink:

Got my 4X4 back on the road finally. Rebuilt front suspension, alignment, brakes, and got my rear bumper fabed to fit and put on. Just need to get an a/c receiver/dryer for the new compressor and get it all charged up. I think I'll drive it to work tomorrow just for fun.

Thanks. Yea, my son hates to see the bull balls hanging under trucks. He says "It's a machine. I should have "nuts". :lol:
Tires are 235-75-15. The front fenders are cut a bit. I bought it that way. The tires were a good deal so that's what went on. The don't rub at all.
