Over the weekend so far...

I changed the oil.
Flushed the radiator/cooling system.
Went through and passed state safety inspections.
Re-filled the washer fluid.
Seafoamed the gas tank and intake.
As a dare, (from an idiot friend) I ordered this emblem for the tailgate...

and I'm in the process of ordering these...

and these...


If it would ever quit raining, I plan to wash the damn thing soon...

Today I drove it to volleyball practice. Then drove it to work. Then I put a new black bug deflector on it to replace the broken camo one.

Cleaned my interior this weekend. Looks better, but I'm still going to need a pair of seat covers. Previous owners were smokers, and there are burn holes in both seats.

That kills me.

I smoked for 5 years and never once burned a seat or anything. Some people are just careless.

Discovered when you hit a patch of ice under throttle, your little 3.slow will race to 5k rpm. That's super high to me, I've never gotten it above 4k.... I'm still new at this guys...
