So Excited!!!!

Can't wait til my next pair of days off.. first thing, wake up and head out to get my tires aligned (new shocks + TB adjust), and then.. I ordered up some JBA Titanium ceramic headers from Wayne, along with a demon screamin coik pack and some wires for it, along with some ultra fancy spark plugs.

Going to have a busy busy MOD day for sure :-) Just excited.. awful happy, that.. and I will also be heading into town to check up a place to get a truckbox.. Ive been looking EVERYWHERE for a DeeZee Depp Tub Black diamond plate.. but sadly they dont make them anymore.. so I've been forced to look elsewhere.



Yip! Tell ya what, spending money on my truck sure is fun.. I LOVE getting my hands dirty... Taped off my KYB shocks today and also painted the rear axel and leaf's with an engine black enamel.. only takes a few minutes to dry enough to pull the tape off of the shocks, and it looks damn nice from the rear end.


And earlier today, when I was down at Nappa getting soem new bolts to replace my driveshaft ones, I saw a couple of folks taking a good look at my truck when they were walkin past.. Rangers kick *** and look good doing it :-)

Hey Mike.......Schucks has two black low profile toolboxes on sale for like $250.....and then in their ad that I got, and they got in store, is an additional $20 or $25 off toolboxes. The Schucks at 181st and Stark in Portland, I believe. That's where i got my old box from. Just wanted to throw that out there. lol.

Someone that woked on my rig prior to me owning it was a very nice person and decided to strip 3 of the bolts... along with putting Locktite on the damn things. You should have seen me under there cursing all heck and back trying to get the damn thigns off. Not much room in that spot for a breaker bar and proper leverage to break locktite -laughs- it consisted of me grabbing 2 of the smalelr wrenches I've got, nobbing them together, and goign at it from there.. had to block all the tires because i was actualyl moving the truck backwards with the force I was giving it.

Rear, They look like some ford part.. i've never seen bolts like them.. took a 12mm 12-star (I think thats the right name of it) to fit on it.. the boxed open end of teh wrench wouldnt fit on it.

Hot dang, I'm actually heading out to Shucks over in Camas right now, I might swing out by that one and see what they have available! Im honestly hoping to get the Deep or Ultra Deep size.. 20" depth is dang handy for me with all the random stuff I liek to carry around. My tools, chains, various articles of clothing and whatnot, rain coat, shipping blanket.. jsut a buncha stuff I liek to have with me.
