Before (this is how I bought the truck - headgasket/timing belt/timing tensioner + top end seals seemed more important than a wash :P ):




After my wash...

My poor truck looks homeless compared to most of these! lol.
It's not that I don't care about it, it's just time consuming and between college, my job, and my pets, I'm lucky if I get 5 hours of sleep a night.

But I can't lie, dixie and ranger_edge have some clean ass trucks.

For some reason this is the only picture I can find of my old truck... worst picture ever but it will have to suffice, lol.



It was a 1998 4.6 v8 f:250 (they only put them in that body for a year or two.) Had 300k miles on it by the time I traded it in. Biggest mistake EVER. I wish I would have kept it. I see the guy who bought it driving around in it every now and then and I can't help but hate him, lol!

It was decent, the rocker panels were rusting out a bit, mostly on the passenger side, my tranny was slipping, something was wrong with the 4wd, and I just couldn't afford getting like 10-12mpg. lol. My mom talked me into selling it while it still ran but I really wish I would have just dumped all my money into and made it a beast. lol.

I wish we would have treated mine that well! My dad bought it brand new and hauled EVERYTHING with it. Drove it all across the country for work. But for being used so hard, it help up great and didn't start giving me issues until a few months before I sold it.
