Blood transfusion and a new liver. A set of new Iridiums and replaced a broken sway bar linkage. She'd get a nice bath but it's supposed to snow like hell in a few days.

Added level 2 decals and factory foglights not visable in this pic. Fog lights definitely worth the trouble. Decals break the truck up some.Together the truck looks better and not so plain.

Dismounted the demountable today and fetched a load of logs from a neighbours ground. He had two small trees removed and I was left with the wood to scavenge. How cool is that, nice neighbour.

Got the news that I will not be trading it in for a F-150 for me as previously planned... Wife decided that I should get a new Jeep instead and she will be getting the F-150 that she wants instead of the one I want... Damn the luck..... I don't think she wanted a 4wd one ...

Picked it up from the shop. Does anyone know if there is a rev limiter on the 02 edges 3.0 that won't let it rev above 3k in park?

Well I can't remember what all I've done since I last posted in this so I'll just post what I've done in the past 3 days.

Took the truck to get aligned on Wednesday but they couldn't do it because the drivers side inner tie rod had a 1/2 inch play in it. So I got that replaced Wednesday night and took it back Thursday and got it aligned. Now my truck won't eat through my tires. When I went to pick my truck up the tech who did the alignment said my truck is one of the cleanest, well maintained trucks with 205k miles on it that he's seen. Said he couldn't find anything wrong with it other then it needing a brake fluid flush and I already knew about that. Funny thing is just about everything on the truck is still original besides what I've replaced which really isn't much.

On a side note I finally found while changing the inner tie rod where my coolant has been going that I've been trying to find for over a year now. Turns out my drivers side head gasket is leaking on the bottom middle. It isn't leaking much just enough to almost drain the reservoir once a month. But now I think it's leaking more as of yesterday there was a very small puddle sitting under the truck which is how I found the leak. So looks like I'll be doing head gaskets this month.

Also while I'm here, I'm thinking about bed lining my rockers and bumpers next week and just want to get some opinions on if you guys would think it would look good or not. No pics as I don't have much time to do some photo-shopping.

Well, got new rear tires and an inspection done a few weeks ago (I know... shut up...)

Then today I installed a new passenger side ball joint (Moog) and changed the oil.

Then I went to a car wash and Wow I almost forgot what color my truck is!
