  1. My 95 had Y style just like your 97. The T style didn’t come out till 98. You can order the HD T style for a 98 for your 97 and it will be direct fit, but you won’t be able to add the bottom stabilizer. I have been running without a stabilizer for almost a year and recently added one. I removed it within two weeks because it made the truck walk the road. If your parts are all right, you don’t need it.
  2. Maybe the replacement I got from advanced was only a single core. From the top it appeared to be the same width but looking down the side, it was missing a row.
  3. I also bought a Murray from oreilly about 5 years ago. The original copper tanked rad was leaking and I originally purchased one from advanced auto but it was only a 2 core, so it was returned in favor of the Murray.
  4. Mpg shouldn’t go down and you should be able to fit a 265/70/17
  5. It was a pretty loud pop, buddies girlfriend in the back seat might have peed a little. I think I used stainless diesel kit and everything went together great. Came with S&B dry filter too but it was expensive. Would have been a little cheaper with box 475 but that 1.10 spooled great. corrected for chicken man
  6. I put a 62/65/14 on my old 12v and eventually put a 75/96/1.10 under it. I could not get egt’s much over 1100 no matter how hard i tried pulling a loaded 35’ gooseneck and beating the poo out of it. Busted a fist size hole in a boot with that load and 80 psi but never got warm. BD used to have a small set of towing twins, I believe 57/69, and it was a really fun setup with manual trans.
  7. 94-2013have pint top front shock tops and go through the coil. 13.5+ font mount outside the coil and also don’t have pin tops on front. I’m sure you could figure out a way to mount them but not worth the hassle for stock bilstein shocks
  8. If the 18 is a leaf spring truck then they might fit but fronts will not.
  9. Unless your blocking the frame up and drooping the suspension, then just one set of 2 will work.
  10. I have done 1” spacers and removed several 2” spacers and have also done several sets of Thuren 2” springs. I have thought about cutting a little out of the 2” coils but don’t want to mess them up. The coil spring compressor at auto parts stores are too small but the strut compressor works perfectly https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/powerbuilt-tools-kit-1-strut-spring-compressor-kit-648627/9150007-P?searchTerm=9150007+OR+9150042 Life will be easier if you spread the lower shock mount a little, after you remove the shock so you can put it back in easier.
  11. I don’t think I’ve ever showered or used the toilet in a TT, how do they work? Do you have to fill tanks when your at a park with hookups or do they auto fill when you hook up to water? Do you pour water down the toilet after use?
  12. I like the classic look of pillar gauges. I’ve ordered all my gauges from diesel manor and they have taken excellent care of me over the years. If I still had a vp truck, I would go with a quadzilla and monitor but isspro EV2 are my stand alone gauges of choice.
  13. Your probably about right on mpg with a dually. You may be able to raise it up a little bit a dually just won’t get the mpg a single wheel truck will.
  14. I don’t think valve covers were off anytime during that run.
  15. This was the sample. I’ve had two 98 trucks and the first two samples were from it several years ago, but it also had a wix bhaf with good results so maybe I have something else going on
