Today I Installed my nos air compressor filter and gasket. Also changed my coolant filter and after 500 miles the inside of the filter was mud! Glad I changed it. I'll continue changing it every 500 miles. See how much crap I can get out of the block.

Earlier in the week I changed my 9r20 ndt and put power king super traction HD 9r20s on the m105a2 to match the truck.

I also added some tire covers on the tires to keep the uv light off the brand new rubber. Got enough for the trailer as well. Gotta change the fuel filters and tighten the belts and the truck should be good for the 2021 season. Working on the inside of the box. Will show the updates of the inside soon.
Where did you find the large tire covers? They are a good idea to protect your investment from UV. Id like to find some that would go over 395’s without costing a ton

I bought them from amazon. They are made by PMD products and are vinyl. They cover a 43" to 45" tire. For the 9r20 I have plenty of room to maneuver them. They were $40/pair but Def worth the money. They used a high quality material.

You’re going to have a great package when you’re done! Really like the tires. I use some UV protection on my tires. It comes in a spray bottle. I’m hoping that it works...
Thanks Bill! It's a work in progress! First camping trip of the year is coming up in 2 wks.

Over the last couple weeks I made some big changes to the inside of the truck. I decided to remove the air mattress. I wanted something that was more of a permanent solution and the aired was a little bulky. Instead I went with a full size bedframe and memory foam mattress. Made a huge difference in quality. I also bought some cabinets at lowes and my father helped me install them. I bought a butcher block counter top 48" and stained it using tung oil for a natural wood look. I kept the fridge and removed the table and chairs I had and replaced with some TV dinner trays and some collapsible chairs to store under the bed to take up less clutter.

I purchased a portable air conditioner but haven't Had time to install it prior to my camping trip starting tomorrow. Plan is to get it installed before Redball military vehicle show. I am looking at a portajon and a portable sink setup as well.
