Happy 2- Year Anniversary Truck! (56k, shat load of pics)

Well, two years ago today I picked up my truck! Its been a great two years with my first 4x4 truck. We have been through some nice adventures! Picked her up with 26,700 on the clock and should hit 70k in the next two weeks. She has seen her fair share of changes from stock with three different wheels, two sets of tires and the few things i have added to her:

I know how much of a clean freak you are when it comes to your truck Scott, but I never thought i'd see the front end and the bed come off for you to clean it! Beautiful truck as always!

That's what I was thinking! The only time my bed came off was during the 5.0 swap to re-do the frame coating and swap the rear/driveshaft! Although, Six big bolts, fuel neck, and a wire harness would be easy to justify for cleaning purposes in my book too.

Nice pictures! Lots of duplicates, but I gotta say I love the photoshoot ones. Good camera eye!

looks good man!

I have an idea for you...

Your truck would look even better with a Color matched Sport grill. I'll gladly buy that chrome one from ya if you ever go through with it :-)

oh and... Sport fender flares...

thats 'bout it :-D

Looks great! I like how you take care of vehicles. And, I agree about the grille. It would look great with a color-matched grille.

lol Cody. yeah i definitly want the fender flares. I "used: to want the colormatched grille until I bought my wheels. I like the look of the chrome with the polished wheels now! Id actually llike an 04-05 honeycomb grille, but i dk. If those damn flares wernt so much, id have them already!
