Haha yeah, that's the reaction I got from my parents too. The only reason I even thought about looking at that F-150, is b/c it had 38 k and it was fully loaded, almost like my truck. The only thing I would have done is put some duals on it. But after all the talk about trading and such, we just couldnt come to an agreement. So I walked away lol.

Haha I kinda like the standard cab. Just enough room to put my crap back there. And nobody ever sits in my jump seats now anyways.

But yeah, I agree about the wheels. I would have taken them off, cleaned them, then sold them for some 16 or 17" wheels. Those wheels that are on there are 20s lol.

Did The Accident Mod!!!!

Sent it to the local ford autobody shop to get the front fender fixed.... had a bit of an accident







Story is: Pedestrian was crossing, truck in front had stopped. I looked down and didn't realize till the last minute that the truck had stopped... locked up the brakes, realized I wasn't going to stop, tried to swerve, and ended up clipping the bumper of the truck in front...
Oh and here's the damage to the other vehicle...

Replaced the plenum gaskets. And while I was leaving the auto parts store I kinda backed into a Grand Caravan and put a nice 4" hole in his front bumper with my hitch. Ranger 1 : Grand Caravan 0

Went to a local State Park and bought a Annual Vehicle Permit and stuck it on the window, some time this week I'm going to get a second key made.

Ordered some new stuff. A drop in bed liner and some black nerf bars.

Thinking about a light bar for the front. Don't know if I want a Bull Bar or a Safari Bar.

I got out in the over 100 degree garage and did work. Replaced the front upper air bag fittings. Air tight is the way to roll.

Yesterday my aunt called me and said she found this trail called Bill Moore Lake and she tried to do it in her Ranger but for some reason she couldn't make it up the steep hill halfway through it. So she wanted to do it in mine. My truck made it all the way to the lake. But halfway through the trail some idiot put a huge boulder dead center in the trail, I tried to go up and around it and ended up sliding right into the rock. And now my truck has this big ugly dent and huge scratch.

http://www.traildamage.com/trails/index.php?id=12

Didn't remember the camera yesterday but I grabbed damage pics this morning.

The dent was around 4 inches caved in but after 2 hours of pounding on it from the inside I got it about the best i can. I'll just end up replacing the door when I have money and find one my color.
