Garage Mod

Well I just got the most expensive mod my truck will see haha

It has been too many years in apartments and I'm happy to be in a house.

I only have 2" before I don't fit.

Nice! just needs a tube bender and a welder now

I need to get out of my parents house, once they move back to the US hah..

I lived in an apartment in Wyoming and HATED it.. I'll have to find a few room mates and get a house cause i really don't want to go back to an apartment, that and i'm working on my truck too much to get away with it at an apartment haha

yeah, my neighbor across the street has a double garage that is like 2 stories tall and looks like he has a good collection of tools. I need to become friends with him and find out what he has. I have seen a new corvette and an old SS in there

apartments frown upon you working on your truck in the parking lot, I know haha

I might be able to pull it off.

I was thinking that if I cut the spacers that attach my light bar to the roll bar I could squeeze some extra inches.

See I could probably cut at least 1" off of there

After I talk to my parents a little more tonight, I'm pretty sure I'll be gone either this weekend, or the weekend after. Nice thing is, I won't be far. 2 miles at most (buddies house, lol).

What about mounting your light bar on a set of hinges. Just drop them down when you need to.

he has a hard time in reverse...he can't really "idle" out of parking spaces, he has to give it some gas or the RPMs drop too low and it dies...with his setup, you always knew when Cecil was either leaving, or coming home!
