I swapped out the 3/4 ton front springs for 2005 1/2" springs. The 1/2 tons were a little taller so the truck sets about the same height. I'm hoping it will give the front end more up travel off the line to help it hook up.

I had considered a 4th bumper haha but it is way way to heavy. I will probably just buy a fiberglass bumper cover and mount it by itself. Like the one that was on the ts caged fury truck.

I fired it up last night and engine sounds good but it will not start unless I spray a little starter fluid in it. I bled all the injectors and there's no leaks anywhere. Lift pump holds 55psi. Any ideas? Timing off maybe??

Where is the timing supposed to be set now?
Could be governor setup. Extra rpm from the sniff letting it fuel.

Oh yeah tried pumping it like a mad man. When I installed the p pump it was pined at 16 degrees. So before I torqued down the pump gear I set the engine to tdc then rotated the engine counter clockwise 6-7 degrees to get 22ish. Then torqued the pump gear. Did I go about it all wrong??
