got the truck back on the road...sort of

I picked my F-250 up from the guy who was swapping the engine for a Jasper rebuild with 20k.

She's now on new 33" tires, and 8-lug military steel rims. She's standing tall and proud now!

One issue I noticed with it...and it's been an ongoing issue that I attributed to the warped/bent rims that were on it. I'm getting some serious vibrations at 45+ mph.

I'm going to pull the shafts tomorrow and check them out, then replace the u-joints.

I can replace both shafts with new for around $500, or grab some junkers for less than $75.

Anyway...I'm happy to have her back home.
