    Mine is fine. It just needs to have the material on it replaced. I was hoping that there would be a cool replacement that wouldn't break the bank (like that's really a possibilitycookoo).

    Got the bed installed 20201122_180122.jpg also got the engine bay complete 20201125_131649.jpg unfortunately I found the front main seal leaking. Got a new seal and installed it and it still is leaking so I'm not quite sure what is going on with that. Im gonna get a speedi sleeve and install it on the harmonic balancer and hopefully it helps. Got it test drove and its a whole different truck than it was before.

    One thing I did learn, when it gets cold out, a 200amp breaker is not enough for the glowplugs. I ordered a 300amp one and hopefully it will be enough.
