I'm not sure about VERY favorite, but I'm really glad I installed a dual reservoir master brake cylinder! Oh, and the heater, which I need to connect to the engine soon.

I am currently digging back in to a 1953 3800 (one ton) with a nine foot bed. I've owned it since 1979, and drove it until 1982 (or so). My wife got me involved in restoring it back in 2002, got the body removed and the frame redone, then things came up. Now I am retired and starting again. If anyone is interested I have photos on Imagur ( https://timwhiteblues.imgur.com/ ). I live way back in the woods in the Ozarks on 40 acres at the end of a 2 1/2 mile private road.

My favorites so far are the 5x7 mirrors on stock arms. So much better than the original small round ones, you can actually see what's back there when backing or checking traffic. And of course the T5 transmission. If your AD is fairly stock and a true driver, you really should check into this fairly easy and (relativity) inexpensive upgrade.

No specific images of the mirror upgrade, but the ones below gives a good idea of how they look.

- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.
