Sweet!! And plans for performance upgrades?
Thx! No immediate plans for the drivetrain, other than maintenance. The suspension and steering were hacked together by the PO, and it was horrible to drive, especially with bald and cracked Swampers. So many loose or stripped bolts... Front shocks on the back and backs on the front, all worn out... OE length brake lines stretched tight... Gonna deal with some surface rust and get the interior back up to snuff too.

Down the road, I may swap out the drivetrain for something with a little more oomph. I'm in the process of having a shop built on my new property, so vehicle funds are a bit tight. Even sold my Jeep to offset costs.

I replaced my Toyo MTs with Toyo RTs yesterday. I absolutely love the MTs and decided that I would try the RTs out this time. Initial impression after 160 miles of driving with 140 miles of that being on the freeway at 80mph. They are slightly quieter than the MTs, there is no noticeable difference in mileage, they squirm a bit more but that may be due to the old MTs being at 9/32 and the new tires 19/32 of an inch of tread. I will not have a chance to try them offroad before the trial 500 miles is up but purely based off of looks they will likely be adequate for what I usually do. My only concern is the sidewalls and sharp rocks.

Maybe if it was a 7.3, I have the V10. People worship the 7.3, but for my current needs, the V10 is a great powerplant.

However, the body is relatively rust-free. It will eventually be powered by a 6bt. I don't plan on getting rid of it any time soon :smiley_drive:
I had a v10 van and would take it over the noisy 7.3 any day.

New shoes for the Little Blue Truck. 1983 Chevrolet K10 SWB 6.2 Litre Detroit Diesel.

35x12.50x15 BFG All Terrains. I thought the Swampers were gonna kill me on the way to the tire shop. Currently, in the garage awaiting suspension upgrades.

Love it. Are we putting a cvt over the bed?

Tried the new RTs in some slick clay mud and on sharp rocks. They performed well, required a bit more wheelspeed to clear mud than the MTs but much better than the bfg ATs I have on my Tacoma. They gripped rock very nicely when wet, possibly better than the MTs.
