My truck's last trip offroad

I couldn't just leave her go without one last time, so i went up to downey's and we hit some trails. the last time i ran these trails they were just slightly went, this time around, snow and ice covered 95 percent. made for an interesting time.

Trans took it pretty decent;had some minor issues with it and the door chime/door adjar doesnt turn off.

Onward with pics, and a heads up my finance took the pics or atleast attempted to.

5spd swap isnt worth the money to me. 4 of the trans were factory ford units brand new. current one was built.
