    My F350 dually crew cab long bed has stock Michelin tires on it and gets better mileage than my wife's F250 with the Toyos. Both 6.7 diesels.

    Iím not going to pull enough to justify diesel so Iíve settled on the 7.3L; my only real question is 4.30 gearing versus 3.73 (which requires F350 to get 3.73). Iím heavily leaning to 4.30s since Iíll be ready for 35s already but with the 10-speed the 3.73 would honestly be more than enough for me while getting pretty stellar fuel economy for the size of the truck and engine.

    I think I did too much at once, I wrecked the truck March 20í and I think it started after that? And then in April Ď20 I rebuilt both diffs, regeared and did the front diff bushings.

    Did YOU actually do the work replacing the bushings? If so I have a question on the tolerance of the lower bushings.

    The only other thing I can think is that I have one inner tierod thatís original, it feels tight but several years ago, iirc, it started popping so I shot it with grease and it went quiet, likely forgot about it since it wasnít making noise. It feels tight but maybe when itís moving the weight of the truck at low speeds it gives a little. I hate to replace something thatís quiet and tight, but who knows.

    I donít know, this truck is just a hotbed of mystery issues.

    4wheel parts installed the bushings so I don't know the clearances. I ordered the ones from Outfitter Design. Good luck in solving the puzzle.

    So let me not jump to conclusions as I have the last 3 times I made this announcement.

    But I found a major source of water intake into the cabin, hopefully it is THE source.

    The pictures below show the cowl removed with the removable cover for the A/C system up, and then moved. I looked in this spot for the water troubles in case the sunroof drain was exiting into the air box some how, instead I found that it was routed seemingly appropriate away from the air intake box. I also hosed the area around the box to check for leaks and it remained dry on the interior

    What I did notice is that the lid for the intake, shown in the lifted up position - had a very weak rubber seal that has begun degrading. Reattaching this cover I hosed down the area and started watching the interior, lo and behold the water started coming into the interior

    Once I stopped the hose flow I again removed the lid and the water box was filled with water.

    I believe the lid is not sealed and allowing water to drip down into the air box. I will be RTVing the air box shut to prevent future leaks
