I replaced the old headlight lenses today. Hyper white headlamp bulbs and LED corner bulbs are on the way. Oh, and I finally got the bumper bolts loose and fixed the bumper sag. I'm a white guy in my late 30's - so I don't bust a sag. I also installed a bedliner recently. I bought the truck used - it was used as a parts delivery truck so it was very well maintained as far as the engine, etc. goes, but the bed took a beating. I liked how the bedliner came with the slots for the bed anchors so I didn't have to cut anything out, etc. I was considering a spray or roll in bedliner til I saw a friend's truck with one, it wasn't holding up so well so I went with a drop-in. And for those of you who noticed, yes that's a pickle bucket in the corner of the pic, cause nothin' says 'I'm a boss, get outta my way' like a sporting a whole bucket of pickles. The steelies are to be replaced with new Ultra Nomads or Ultra 164's, verdict's still out on that one.

I finally replaced the leaky plastic diff cover on my 94. Got a nice steel unit instead.... Someone had a brain fart when they put that plastic junk on the truck.

Started building platforms for the truck beds last night since it was too damp to paint the tailgate on the '98. The idea on the platform is to put the sand bags beneath it so I can load stuff in the bed and not worry about damaging the bags. There will be access panels built into it to access the bags when needed and store stuff underneath.

Congrats on your sale!

Today I bought some sandpaper and a crapload of Duplicolor adhesion promoter and Duplicolor truck bed coating for my flares, bumpers and rocker panels. I hope this turns out the way I picture it...

Of course a cold front had to move in so that I can't do the mod until it warms up again..

Also got some krylon fusion satin black to touch up the grille, trim, and interior.

Dedicated thread with pics to come soon.

Cleaned and detailed her thus morning. Washed my moms Subaru WRX STi too. She was happy :P. Then went under and gave my truck the TLC she deserves. Cleaned the airbox, greased the ball joints, and a few other small things.

Got out the spot carpet-cleaner from work, and cleaned all my carpet and seats. Took my 1993 ranger and made the carpet look fresh and revitalized. Ended up doing the carpet stuff on my doors, and then my rear seats. Couldn't do my front seats cause i have to go out tonight.
Also did a bunch of touching up with a toothbrush, trying to make everything look nice
