Well, this weekend I did a little work on the T-Dub.



Installed a New front sprocket. Need a new rear, then I will install the new chain also.



Picture of the OLD Sprocket:







Also decided to replace the bolts to allen...







Next, I went ahead and put on the new KENDA K270 5.10







And lastly, I installed the Stainless TTR225 (2004) Exhaust header









I love this little bugger !

Well, finally got my new rear tire. Decided to dismount the old tire today and mount up the new one.



Whew... getting off the old one was "fun"... um not really. I had to drive my truck over the tire and then hit it with a rubber dead-blow hammer to get it OFF the bead.

Once off though, everything went on nice and smooth. I also put in a new tube for good measure.











As you all know I already replaced my front sprocket. Got the rear on today too and now it is time for the new chain.



YAY !

I had the same experience when I replaced my rear tire. That sucker was on there! I'm sure the rear tire could run at 0 PSI and still be fine because its so stiff! I used a car jack against a bumper which didn't work, then I used a 6 ft. long 2x4 against a running board and it finally worked. I thought I was going to flip my pickup over before that darn bead came off!
