Changed out the front brake pads, test fitted the new rims I bought, then removed lower part of valence bumper and sprayed the radiator guard black.

Removed and painted the front bumper, license plate "guard"(?), and mud flaps satin black. I also masked off and painted the year bumper since I spent forever re-positioning it and didn't want to mess anything up.

Tomorrow after church I'll re-attach everything and post pics

I used my ranger this evening to pull 3 large bushes out of the ground for my in-laws. It was probably overkill, but it saved all the work of having to dig them up.

Drove it to a motocross gear sale...

And later in the evening I drove it into the side an ugly Dodge Ram.

re-paint the black part like I did? Just keep the can a decent distance from the valence and be methodical..... super easy and makes the truck look new again!

Well let's see, Friday I put recon led bulbs in for my reverse lights. In the process I broke a corner off my tails (pissed off still) all because I'm a retard and forgot it had the outside screws(did my buddies 06 f150 for him and he only has the screws on the tailgate part. Then we spent like 3 hrs trying to install brackets for his new big rig running lights(stupid self rappers didn't wanna go thru the metal, wasted 1.5 hrs on one side. Found a drillbit and did driver side in 15 mins) it was dark so we went to outback where he bought me a steak and I got our servers number then yesterday I went to install my recon tailgate strip and the fucker didn't wanna light up. I checked the fuses for the trailer tow plug and they were all good. I know the plug was good at the beginning of the year cause I used it. So Idfk why the damn thing won't work. As for today I watched my dad clean his windows with windex(tinted windows) I told him not to cause it'll turn em purple, we got into it then said "now you won't wanna buy my truck cause the windows will be purple" I didn't say anything but I told my mom I didn't want his truck she asked why I told her. Tint Is too light, has same motor as I do and I told her I wanted a diesel. So this weekend has sucked balls for my truck
