Currently stripping the paint inside of the wheel wells for repainting with rubberized sealant. No rust! so far... im glad to be doing this before any kind of rust starts to form. Need the truck to last another 10+ years.

Mission accomplished, and still have 2 hours before i need to leave to head off to school. And got to deep detail the wheels between drying times per sprayed coat. Each side got 2- 2 1/2 of a coat... some places were more stubborn to get done. But its done, and till i have the bed removed for a complete repaint job... itll work.

Put two new winterforce uv tires on the rear, moved the old rears to the front, got rid of those horrible damn flat-spotted tires finally!


Drove her around on my birthday a bunch, got 23.1mpg even driving 80-95 most of the day.


Gotta love my 2.5L!

Worked on the bed platform some more. Found out I need to raise the plywood bed about an inch to clear the sand bags. The rest is done though. Not bad but the fitting took longer than expected. Raising the deck will be the easy part.

While I haven't put them on, I traded some subs and amp for a set of 15s and BFG AT T/A Ko's. It was raining when I got home and i'm kinda sick so I decided to wait and watch the Spurs game... Go Spurs!

Changed the HVAC knobs to shine white so that they match my cluster:



to match:



Also put in some 05' seats.





Almost forgot. Tinted my windows as well.. First time I worked with tint before and it came out perfect. Saved $200. No need for professional install:

Took the valance off my front bumper. The previous owner had it JB welded/puttied/screwed onto the front bumper. Might replace the whole thing since the bumper itself is dented and it looks like the supports that brace to the body are damaged too. Oh well.

And removed the front LP holder. If anyone wants it, 15ish shipped.
