Cleaned out the interior and gave it a bath.

Found a hole in my bed due to rust.
Nothing a good 'ol grinder and a welder can't take care of.

Replaced the burnt out bulbs in my dash. Only had 2 of the 6 194 bulbs working. Now I can see all my gauges in the dark. It's awesome!

Took mine on break over the the Walmart to grab some pop. When I can outside there was some ugly fat bitch with her cart pushed up against my truck while she was loading her small child in the back seat. I quietly got in my truck and started it... Then I revved it up, and scared the living **** out of that lady. It was awesome.

Its a little low, but a lot higher off the ground than it looks in the picture.

Last night, I dropped her off to get new rocker panels put in. Once that's done, plan is to put bed liner on the body panels up to the line. But until then, no truck for a while...

You could say I had a pretty good time at the RAVE Car Show this weekend.

I go in expecting to do well in my class, but to win the "Best in Show Truck" was huge! My daily driver up against "real" show trucks.

Just put on a new set of 4 tires: Brigstone Dueler A/T Revo 2 all season; P245/75R16 109T; 50,000 mile warranty. $142.50 per tire with new valve stems and balancing complete from Costco.

So far the highway ride is smoother and quieter than it was with my regular Dueler A/T's which I've run for 50,0000 miles.

My parts for when the truck comes back are waiting. My headlights came last week, and I got the bedliner paint today. She should be back this weekend.
