New Years Resolution With Your 6.5...

Well, figured I would start a thread for resolutions some of us might have for/with our trucks. Whether it would be to take her out more, not tow so much, upgrades ect... whatever it may be.

Personally, for me, I want to an am in the process of getting a leveling kit for the front, a remote start system, center caps and get a full blown detail. Already did the undercoating by Ziebart last week so I am off to a good start. Would also like to be more consistent with adding fuel additive after EVERY fill up.

I don't, chime in with your opinions.....

My 6.5 new years resolution is to go from work-in-progress to done-daily-driver so I can put my trusty 6.2 van up on jackstands and do the pathfinder 4x4 conversion.

mine is dont cheat on the current ones with new ones. its not really cheating, but its like a Polygamist getting another wife and ignoring the rest.

I need to not buy any more trucks and spend money fixing the current ones up and selling the ones I dont want (anything auto or 4wd is on the chopping block, but the 93 K2500HD will likely stay as one 4wd is nice, and the 252K will scare off buyers)

fluidampers, timing gears, big exhausts, studs if the motor is out of the engine compartment, guages, bilsteins, new tires, more PY0 alloys, flatbeds, body and paint, etc. GM8 turbos in all the older ones, etc. basically fixing them up on a budget and not big ticket go fast stuff, just reliability, durability, and safe operation.
