Chased some tailgating a$$hole in a Jetta down the highway and let him know how much I admired his skill behind the wheel.

Well...I got a hitch insert for it, found chains to put on the hitch, realized I didnt have clips in-case I had to tow a trailer, realized all the stores were closed so I couldnt buy any, ziptied them on, wired up my radio, put a cb, and pa in. Took off my front drivers side shock cause its blown and the top mount is striped, and yep. Lastly dreamed about the day when I get my loan so I can put on a 4" susp, lift 3"body,either 33" or 35"x12.5x15 mud kings, push bar light bar and a bunch of KC's. By the way does anyone wanna borrow me $1500?

Didnt do all this today but recently did airbox mod with K&N, got a ford under rail liner for it, installed weather tech mats, bought some 255/65-16 Michellin Latitudes (Had to drive to Newport Beach for them), waiting on taurus fan to come in today to install it, picking up new hood insulator from Raceway Ford today as well.

Took a photo of what I hate the most about my truck and entered it into the photo contest.



Parking brake failure... truck vs. garage carnage (bumper, valance, grille and hood).
