After a successful 5,000 mile round trip from SD to NC and averaging 29mpg, it was time to upgrade.

About 2 weeks of cussing, busted knuckles, parts ordering and rust all over the place she's back in the light.

Now sporting fresh wheels, tires, calipers, hoses, some lines, master cylinder, prop valve, 5 lug/4bolt non-AWS rear....she's looking good. Now for a paint job. See you guys there.

Thanks CR, always nice to have someone let me know that winter is coming in a few months. I hate SD.

It also helps that most of the midwest has no hills. Actually got 32 mpg on one tank when the wife drove it. We'll see how we do on the SO trip. Best 1500 I ever spent.
