Pulled the truck out of Marini with a fresh overhead and a radiator flush with new fluid, then did an oil change (oil filter is the easiest to get to I've ever seen... fuel filter... not so much)...

And these finally arrived today:

Looks like you have a great plan for the long haul, once on the road you should have very little down time.  Break downs on the road will kill you when one starts to miss loads and miss $$$ as well as spending lots.

Important thing about fuel filter location is, warm in the winter.

What size cogs did you go for?

Very nice, drifting-off-hills gearing.
