So you went heavy duty (751) in the front, and medium duty (764) in the rear? Why mix and match? Are those 255 tires?

If the above is all correct, could you take a measurement in the rear to the top of your rear capping towards the back of the truck?

I'm getting ready to do my rear springs, and I've been trying to decide between the medium & heavy duty OMEs.

Looking for a measurement to approximately here:

I had the same setup with a sg bumper and 9.5 warn winch. I have an le with a bunch of crap on it and ran 255s. It worked really well.

Had hd shocks up front though.

Yeah I was just surprised he is running a stock front bumper, yet the truck seems to be sitting fairly level front-to-back.

I will get you a measurement in the morning.

Tires are 285's.

I am eventually going with a bumper and winch on the front. Ive seen a few others with the same setup and they sat level.

I took a quick measurement this morning. It looks to ring in around 52 5/8 give or take. I can get a more exact measurement when it quits raining.

Swapped out the worn ATs to the MTs. Only took an hour and a half with Judy a breaker bar. I have since ordered an electric impact. Then drove it this weekend and to work today. I think the headlights fixed themselves but the hella driving lights don't work.

Installed OME2755 springs in the rear this evening. The highly compressed/worn nature of the original springs made for a quick install!

Unfortunately my front spring retainers are prone to break, and a large distributor back ordered them and didn't tell me... 4 weeks later I call and they say 'oh yeah' those are back ordered. So, now I have upgraded springs in the rear and old originals on the front and have major tilt going on. Should be fine for Uwharrie.

Added lights on the top of my truck. It only took my uncle 2 weeks to put it on.

Changed the timing belt no great dramas. Timing was a little off, corrected it, couldn't detect any difference afterwards.

Fitted new lower door seals today.
While the sills were off I stretched the bulkhead. It had distorted when I'd had it galvanised and there had been a gap at the top of the front doors as a consequence. Due to time constraints at the end of the rebuild (Going to Morocco) I'd never done anything about it apart from inserting some spacers behind the lower door hinges which helped a little.
I couldn't see a way of fixing the problem without stripping the bulkhead off the truck. Last night I had a thought on how to pull out the lower part of the bulkhead out without removing it. Removed the big bolt that holds the bulkhead to the chassis, removed the fixings for the floor to the sill and gave it a good tweak with a chain hoist. Knocked the bolt back in and did the same to the other side. Worked nicely and the doors now close properly without gaps at the top. (Only took six years to sort.)
