Car Show from this weekend

On Saturday there was a car show pretty close to my house so a couple of friends of mine..and me..decided a few months ago to get in it for fun. So alll last week I cleaned the heck out of my truck...about 15 hours I put into it lol. To be honest what took me the longest was cleaning the motor..that was a complete pita...I have always tried to keep it pretty clean but I never really "detailed" it. So i did the best I could haha. All in all the show was a lot of fun...I didnt stand much of a chance once a guy pulled up next to me with an F250 on 40s and 20s lol...it was a really...REALLY nice truck for sure. i cant imagine how much money he had in it. It was all great other than waking up the mornin of the show and seeing that a cat had gotten in my garage over night and basically destroyed my hood fenders and roof...i was so upset...that along with hobblin around on crutches all day were the only crappy things lol....But on to the pictures....It was a lot of fun for sure!!

Matt, man Your truck is incredible. I CANNOT believe that how clean it is. THAT IS RIDICULOUS. Major props, your 15 hours are believable....
I really like your truck....good color too! i heard really cool people drive Deep Wedgewood Blue trucks..

and honestly, I like your truck alot more than that f250. Its way too flashy IMO. you shoulda won

I meant to ask. What kinda lift you got there? and what size tires?

Nice one!
Those little car shows are fun. And don't think just cause his truck is bigger, that his is better!
Keep it up!

Thank all ya'll for the compliments!!! Im glad someone thought it looked good haha It was def. a ton of fun and I really enjoyed spending the extra time cleanin it up like crazy..I was def. there just for fun and thats what I did for sure. Next time though I think we need to get as many fellow ranger folks as we can and do one..that would be AWESOME!!

And Anthony....the lift is just a 3" BL and the tires are 33x11.50s...those mud grapplers are tons of fun..haha I Love the sound!!!

Thanks again for the compliments!!

Truck looks great! I'd kill that cat! I'd skin it, cook it, put it on a plate next to some fried rice and dip it in Sweet & Sour sauce. Again, the truck looks great!
