Haze from an lb7 is likely injectors. Balamce rates only tell part of the story. But if it still runs good, no sense in messing with it since lb7 injectors aren't the most fun to do.

I‘m prepared to do them. But its not always hazing.. I noticed a bit more soot coming out the exhaust with the new 5“ without Muffler. Maybe its not haze what I‘m seeing.. as I said I‘m super feared[emoji23]

Truck is out of my garage.
Drove it to the Paintshop where it will get the freshly painted Workbed this week.
Frame looks good but paint wasn‘t completly dry.. I have 3-4 spots where I‘ll need to do some touch up work after they fitted the bed.

Next step is wiring of the bed (a lot to do) and Liftkit/Suspension Overhaul. I decided to do a complete Energy Suspension Bushing Kit with Cab Bushings and I‘ll Powdercoat most parts I take off like Control Arms

Got more parts for the Truck in and hopefully I´ll be more active here soon.

Quick list of upcoming tasks:
- Install Liftkit
- Steering Overhaul (Balljoints, Tie Rods, Pitman/Idler Arm, Idler Arm Bracket, Dual Steering Stabilizer)
- Bushing Overhaul (Control Arms, Leaf Spings & Hangers, Sway Bar, Sway Bar Endlinks)
- Complete Wiring for the Workbed (Emergency Lights, Work Lights, Second (third) Battery, Switch Panel, etc)
- Raptorliner for the Workbed
- Workbed Tie Downs
- Rear Bumper Replacement
- Cluster Overhaul
- Mount new Fenders
- some minor things like LED Headlight bulbs

I also bought new tank strips and Brake Heatshields. The old ones are rusty and don´t look very good to be honest.
More things are planned but for now thats enough to do..
