Got the truck back finally!!!

Today was the best day ive had in a long time. I finally got my truck back and now im drivin it again. I got the new spindles, got all the balljoints replaced, and replaced the tie-rods. It drives like a completely different truck. The steering wheel is nice and stiff and it drives real straight. And my sub sounds soo good after not hearing it for that long.

i dont remember all the prices, but i did Moog balljoints and got the tierods replaced. the balljoints were kinda pricey, but i honestly cant remember, ill find my receipt later.

and i guess i'll get pictures but it looks horrible. i have a new bumper, bedliner, the billet, grill, and a new bedside, but the truck looks ugly. the left front fender is all bent up and the flare is about to fall off, and one of my corner lights popped out and shattered. thats all from the wheel falling off
