Front end getting some well deserved attention with a set of OUO ala's fresh off the rack from JCPowdercoating. Have a new steering box, pitman arm , and a bunch of other front end parts ready to install.

Yessir, threw a new mishi radiator in earlier this year, replaced all 4 calipers, and a couple other odds and ends and she seems to be happy. Dealing with a small boost leak on the hp side right now but that'll be getting ironed out shortly. Might have it all squared away before Rudy's event. Truck wars was in sight, but having to work this weekend.

OUO quality impresses me everytime. These will be going to JCPowdercoating this weekend (hopefully) done in (Prismatic) illusion blueberry. Trying to figure out as to what extent will be kept the wrinkle black, and what will get coated. The ala's are 100% illusion blueberry, would like for them to match, but I believe also that less is more at times.

Did you perform any of upgrades besides the 3 link, steering box, brakes, and pitman arm?

I did all of those above. I am curious about other upgrades like the Drag Link bar and tie rod.

The link arms, steering box, and pitman arm are still waiting to put on. Trying to do everything at once. Been so busy this year haven't had much of a choice.

I will be ordering PMF drag link, and tie rod center bar soon, also to be powder coated. During installation OEM tie rods will be used. Also installing a spicer trac bar joint per Jared"s reommendation from OUO. My steering linkage is on barrowed time, and I'm convinced if I hadnt put on the carli high mount stabilizer I'd be wrestling the steering wheel on the regular.

Have a 17' 250 alumiduty work truck, and it pains me to drive my 08'. Really puts in perspective how "tired" lol, my OE set up is...215k miles, but holding strong...

One up off road rear diff cover, traction blocks and bars. PMF drag link & tie rod bar, and a Carli adj trac bar. All finished in illusion blueberry. Install looking to be later this month . It's crazy how the color looks in full sun vs inside my buddy's shop @jcpowdercoating.

OUO adaptable shock towers coming in next week, and hoping Radflo will be done with the coilovers in couple weeks. Goal is to have bypasses on front and rear by Spring. Don't really need them, but damn if they dont look cool as hell, and I like knowing 50mph+ through my inlaws farm/pasture is doable.

Update- on PMF's website, in particular their description for the drag link, it has the direct replacement, and an offroad/hd version all in the same description. It clearly says, and I've read it a million times lol , that the tapered hole that accepts the hardware for factory style stabilizer is not existent on their drag link and dual stabilizer set up is recommended. So, I'm waiting on powdercoating on the ouo truss/stabilzer and front diff I had Collin send me before we can install it. Also, they are sending off an order for radflo to build some stabilzer shocks. Hoping about 4 weeks they'll be in, and we can complete install, and give some feedback.

Traction bars/blocks going on as of last night, steering gear box with new pittman arm and BA nut as well.

Still waiting on coilovers and stabilizers from radflo/ouo.
In the meantime my buddy who has a shop, and an alignment rack knocked out the ala's, along with tie rod bar and new oem tie rod ends. While we were at it through on the new diff cover. All new fluids and filters at same time. We were able to get high 4s in castor, and the bumpsteer I had prior is virtually nonexistent. Had some odawgs manifolds come in, and took them to Jcpowdercoating- he killed it in speedway black powdercoat. Couple pics of new parts and manifolds.
