Truck looks good and all...but is it really necessary to post up a new thread every week about how you detailed the truck? LOL

Seriously though...get some new mods then snap some new pics. Ditch the rebel flag, bug deflector, and windshield banner.

The first step to a solution is to admit you have a problem. :)

Just pick up a can of Meguiars foam shine, spray let it sit a little, then wipe tires down with an old dry clean rag, no more sling :D Works everytime

Oh and Dj, when "I" think you wash your truck too much, its probably too much LOL. It all changes when you get a house, child on the way, and everything else. I wish I could wash mine the way ya'll used to see pics every week of the ranger a a few years ago. But ive faced the conclusion I just cant anymore LOL.

Everyone told me that will all change when I got a house and kids and I didnt believe them....well believe them! You lose alot of extra time because you now have to cook your own dinner, clean your own house, clean your own clothes, wash your own dishes, go to church, workout a little bit, spend time with the wife, etc....So gone are the days when I could just spend 8 hours washing the truck. So enjoy it while you can. I would have never thought two years ago that today Im not washing my vehicles as much as I'd like.

Ok, someone get the tow straps and tie him down. next we'll make him pour his car wash soap down the drain or something.
Isn't that how interventions work?
