agreed..she is a nice looking broad but hey it seems to be missing some....spice! thats it.
This is more like it. After a short trip to small mud hole salon she is living large and taking charge with a whole new look! [curtains open]

I'm sorry if i seem a little dazed but this is the first mud i have laid eyes on in about 7-8 weeks and it was just what the doctor ordered.

What a crappy paint job! They obviously didn't prime it, nor did they cover the full truck, because the original color is showing through. They didn't tape a damn thing off, so there's overspray all over, and they painted the bedliner?!? I'd go scream at them and get my money back.
