    I got a 2005 2500hd single cab with a 8.5' Curtis v-blade on the front end. I already tightened the torsion bars and got the timbren's for it. I was wondering if there was anything else that I needed to do so that my truck won't be FUBAR by the end of the 2005 season.

    Make sure that you have plenty of ballast in the back end and do regular service on the front end. Can't wait to see some pics with the truck all setup.

    ballast needs to be behind the rear wheels to do its job of pulling weight off the front end.
