Added yet another gallon of water to the radiator.... I drove it maybe 50 miles between last time I added... Gonna get new hoses and swap them out this week just incase its a leak in a spot I can't see... Still looking at the 2011 F-150's harder and harder though.... Narrowed it down to a 5.0 4 door 4x4 xlt. Thinking thats what I will end up with... Soon...

11 am and I'm already on a roll! 27* out is making me slower than normal

Changed the oil, tranny fluid, rear diff fluid, new fuel filter, brakes torn apart(going to swing by work to turn the rotors) and I'm working on auxillary back up/ stfu and stop flashing your highbeams in my rearview because you hate my hid's...lights lol

Really need to wash the truck too if it gets above freezing for a bit

Drove her to Autozone and parked next to her twin, which was driven by an old guy who said "Nice looking truck, son". Spent 5 minutes talking about Rangers and had to leave because it was my lunch break.

Heard some squeaking last week from the front brakes. I had the rotors cut and put new pads on about 17,000 miles. It just turned 30,000 mile and seem the rotor are nearing the end of their life. I took the front wheels off and the pads looks good, but the rotor seems to be heavy with rust inside the cooling fins. Did any one find cross drill and slotted rotor a benefit for them? I was thinking about putting a set on but if its not that much greater performance gain with the cost difference I'll stick with regular rotors.
Thanks,

Today I managed to break my four wheel drive, power steering and transmission. Oh yeah, I'm also leaking oil. And to top it all off I got my first speeding ticket. Ended my day with getting stuck with the overnight shift. Today was just not my day.

well....i took a friend out mudding, i wasnt planning on doing anything to crazy cus it was just me and him in my truck. we were there about 20-30 min drive around, went threw this pit couple times, decided to go threw it the other way, WHAM!! got stuck. and it was sooo effin stuck!!! had to call dad with the jeep to get me out. wasnt easy. just to get me out, took 2 HOURS!!!!! i kid you not haha, it was so crazy. go rear stuck and we tryed pulling, but rear part of frame was all laying on the ground and drive shaft, everything in the rear was on the ground. i went in, straped tow strap around the rear axle(i need hitch ) and pulled from rear, front axle and bumper and front of the frame gotstuck on te ground so couldnt go that way. had to dig out whole fron end, and stick table tops in front of tires...ahh 2 WHOLE HOURS!!! not doing that again ....maybe
