Well it was nice for a few minutes once again.

Like the title says, it was nice for a lil while today. So I headed over to Austy's for a hot water pressure washer bath on the ranger and some tire shine, during which it started to rain on me. Go figure.

It did look good though... And Austy traded rims with the guy who bought my old truck from me. It just so happens, that guy is his gf's brother, small world. I still see the truck all the time too!

And here's Austy's new setup. We even cut his front center caps tonight to allow for his push button vacuum hubs we did. What do you think?

Push button vacuum hubs? WTF?

Both trucks are pretty damn nice, though.

And what year be the little yellow Toyoter in the shop?

Yeah, he wanted to get the Warn hubs for the front but did some research and found you can actually mod the stock vacuum hubs and push in on the screen and it will lock the hubs in that way. It's worked everytime since then. He found it on a site totally separate from here. All he has to do is put it in 4 and if it doesn't click in the first time through vacuum, he gets out and pushes the center of the hub in and it clicks and he's set.

Really? That's pretty cool! Do you happen to know where he found that?
