Found a spot of rust peeking out from behind my fender flare. Pulled the fender flare and my worst fear was confirmed. RUST

Pics here!

Finally finished my entire cooling system! New radiator, fan, thermostat, water pump, and flushed out all the brown shit out of my heater core! Now she stays cool and blows warm air!

That's a good little modification.


I took mine to a local shop to have the left/front tire re-balanced. Mechanic's shops are hilarious to me. The owner took my keys, got in the truck, and instead of pulling it straight into the shop, he takes off down the street and comes back. He then hops out and proceeds to open the hood. As soon as I saw this, I stepped up and asked him what he was doing, to which he replied "getting information". Getting information from under my hood to balance a tire??? Uhhh....yeah. I then told him to close the hood and don't worry about anything under there and just balance the tire. Might I add, my engine runs perfectly with no out of the ordinary noises or check engine light at all. He then tries to tell me that my *new* wheel bearings are bad. Sorry, my boy, but I just replaced those things, and I've been checking them religiously ever since. Places like that are always looking for a sucker, but not this guy, and not today.

Put tail gate straps on. Original owner took them off and I got new ones for free.

I went to WalMart and bought some vinyl cling tinting for my tails. Got home tried several times to use the crap but couldn't get to to look anywhere close to decent. So I tore it all off and went to my local Oreilly's and purchased some Night Shade and a can of clear. That went very well and here are pictures to prove it.
