Cool mouse.

What are your plans for it and are you going to swap anything over from the old rig to the new?

Looking good. When I changed my air filter two times ago, I found a mouse nest in mine to. My truck never hardly sits. I always thought about putting a screen on that little snorkel part to keep them out.

If you need any pieces let me know, the wreck may go this summer though.

Not sure how the headliner faired in the rollover, but it is cut for an OHC. It's also snowed in, but any carpet/headliner/plastic trim that you need you can have if you want to come up when (if ) this white crap ever goes away....we still have A LOT!
It's had a tarp on it the whole time, so water damage is not an issue.

I like the "mouse in the air box mod" I was gonna do the same, I was told it adds horsepower especially if you put in a wheel.

That mouse is funny as hell. Made me go out and look in my airbox lol. Anyway, it always sucks to have to start over but the long road of repair, maintenance, and modification is always fun albeit expensive lol

Yeah, I try not to look back at what I've spent. All I know is the pile of receipts on my desk is getting to a point where I can't but anymore on there. I'd honestly rather not know.

It looks daunting now but look back in a year and it will seem like nothing but good times lol

7.5 inch right?
