most of my gripes are self inflicted, like
-having no backup lights because I haven't done the 3 to 2 bulb conversion for my 06 tails yet, so I turn on the hazards when I need backup illumination
-My center console is just squeezed between the seats because I never got the skeleton bracket for it after doing the bucket mod
-mileage ain't great because of the lift & 33's and I haven't moved up to 4.3 or 4.56 yet
-no parking brake because I snapped the line a few years ago and am too lazy to fix it
-body lift, I was stupid to do it, should have done spindles

That anytime I use the brakes in the morning, or when its cold, or at night, or when its raining, or after it was raining, or near water.. they lock up instantly and send my head into the steering wheel...

Bought it new three years ago and the ride is still stiff for my likes. I bought new shocks for it and put them on Monday. I want the old ones back!!!! Monroe Sense-a-track made it feel like it was new again. Is there a softer coil spring for that year/model? I don't haul our go off road with it, looking for a smoother ride for my daily commute. Any advice?
Thanks,

My step-side bed that I can't find a damn tool box for. My paint being black and showing every bit of dirt and dust. 15 MPG. No money to lift it. I love my truck, but it can be a PITA.

What do I hate? Brand new truck (2010 w/ 3000 miles) and when I'm going down the road at hwy speed it sounds like I have the window cracked. I can take her to the car wash and put the defrosters on high, see huge bubbles from the soap coming from everywere. Around the window, the mirror, door handle, even the friggin door lock. Poor fit on the doors and tailgate. The gap is wider on one side of both of these. Dealer says "within tolerances". Yeah? Well the 2008 XLT I traded in on this truck had none of these issues. Maybe next time I buy a new vehicle, I'll go back to the see the "General". Anybody else have these issues?

Squeaky rear leaf springs, the unimpressive horn and my clutch slipping and squealing on steep hills.

Thankfully all three are things that i can fix in the future.

that it blends into the croud and nobody is intimidated by it. My Ramcharger scares the &%$# out of everyone when they see it and nobody pulls out in front of it.

The only reason it stains your hood, and no one else's, is the fact that it has to fall so much farther to get to yours.

4 x 4 only helps you start moving. It doesn't help you stop
