Why waste your money on the other 4 they really dont help any

Id still take 8 other than 3 that are a PITA to get to

Number 1 is not easy to get to with a socket and ratchet
Number 2 is okay complete biotch cause of the angel
Number 3 have to hold the transmission dipstick tube out of the way

4 5 6 are simple to change

funny that this should be the first thread i see on the list...
i was busy today, not done any of it yet but it got dark so i'll have to continue tomorrow!

to start it off, i got my vinyl from trent the other day,

very nice i'd say.

thanks trent!

secondly, got myself a truck bedliner kit, and started.

i got it all almost sanded today, tomorrow jsut clean up and coat.
the drop in liner left my bed in rough shape, scuffed right down to the metal in some spots.


continued to paint my rear bumper, thats almost done!


my front receiver mount tow hook that im making, just have to finish painting it then its good to go.


and my license plate holders, same thing, just have to finish painting!

sorry for the last three pics being so dark, my cam was dying.
another busy day ahead of me tomorrow!

i love that my parents are gone for two weeks, now they can't ***** about my bed not being attached to my truck, or crap all over our lawn :)

that and i have an extra car to drive in the mean time

I havent done anything of 'value' to my truck since May 08. Thats when I installed the rear sway bar. other than that.... I think I changed the oil once. Can we say; lack of interest?

Filled up for $30. Drove around and said "what the hell" and went WOT and listened to the music of the 4.0L. (never went above 55mph).
