Iron rock off road makes a pretty beefy double sheer adjustable TB. When you remove the stock mount take a look at the bolt holes they may be wallowed out. If that is the case you will have to fix that or no new TB will fix your DW. It may be a good idea to sleeve the mounting holes just for piece of mind.

From what he showed up to me with to break loose I'm pretty sure he was having issues way beyond which way to turn the bolts! He showed up with a mission impossible bracket for me to pop some parts loose on. I was a bit surprised I was even able to get it taken care of for him.



Uhhhhhhhh, got side tracked on the way to work this morning.

Hey Marn I thought I remember reading somewhere way back when that your rig had an aux gas tank complete with a switch to change between tanks. Is it possible that they gauge wiring goes though that switch and is all jacked up?

maybe we can get Powr to do some slow motion videos of you driving over the speed bumps at the mall?

That's a great idea actually!!! Maybe I can pull it up on a curb or two even if I feel like getting all crazy!

I wouldn't try it without your high lift jack at the ready.

Either that or a rental car and a snatch rope.



I always hate ordering stuff that does not ship right away. I feel like once I fork over the money they wipe their hands clean like the transaction is done, esp when it ships direct.


When you order something and they say 3 weeks... and tomorrow is going to be 5 weeks I want to kill someone.

Terry and I got he tank back in my truck and it works.


New return line and filter


But unfortunately my gas gauge still doesn't work and we even added a ground to the tank :-( must be the gauge.

Oh well.
Looks clean Marn. No more leaks!

Couple more from the super quick walk around. I didn't get one from the driver side though showing the front at droop.






Can't wait to go attach some curbs and the speed bumps!

My guess is that they are pretty close to the same.
