Mine was beat to shit and I planned on painting it a different color after the front clip conversion . Buying the bed for 200 saves me about 1500 on the paint job (=

When it rain it pours.
Vacuum leak code- repaired
Emmission leak code- repaired
EGR code- repaired
Rear drum broke- replaced
Exhaust leak- found the leak after using seafoam
and noticed the white smoke come out of my main cat.
This all happened within a months time!
But I love my truck!

I bought new motor mounts. The old V6 ones just couldn't hold up to the 5.0 and it started sagging on the driver side. The rag joint for the steering started hitting the header so it gets scary on right hand turns now unless I give it some gas to lift that side of the motor up lol. And hopefully next tues ill get to start painting her!

They're only 3.4" shallow and they're dirt cheap and it was still an upgrade, my bass was nonexistent before this. Now it actually hits alittle

Hmm...... that makes sense. I'd probably Need to hear them before I did that.





A few days ago I put in 4 new 5x7 image dynamic in all four corners. They sound amazing compared to stock. Now I need some more bass though. I though about picking up one of those powered sub jobbies but pretty iffy about them. Oh and today I washed it.

Disconnected one side of front sway bar, other side somebody before me Musta failed at removing it because that bolt was cross threaded and won't come off. And now I'm gonna wash her. Will it be alright if I leave one side disconnected like that without removing completely?
