Ok, well I may have lied about being past all of the 'big ticket' items....

I just purchased a 15# CO2 air system from Power Tank to refill my tires & related goodies.

Well, I do have a stable & well-paying job...but really, it's just a matter of me enjoying my toys. I usually save up my money for a while, and then I get bored, and get the ‘itch’.

Once I make my mind up to do something, I usually go overboard!
I'm certain I have a "go big or go home" complex!

Update for the official record:

I haven't really purchased anything (major) for my truck in about a week now!! I was rolling at a good clip for awhile!

However, I'm currently exchanging some email with Fred @ Rogue Performance to update my SCT X3 for when the 4.88's @ 35's get tossed on.

I did get my new tank filled up with CO2, so that's all set. Other than that, I'm just waiting for some more of the deliveries to show up!

The 4.88's front & rear gears as well as the Torsen front LSD has been fully installed!

While I'm waiting on my new SCT tunes to get sorted, my speedo is wayyyyy off, luckily I won't be driving it much.

Those 4.88's are some deep gears when rolling on 285/75's!
