The clusters and 2 Ranger badges are actually being sold (I had requests for those clusters) but everything else is being put onto either my truck or my dads truck.

Took my truck to court this morning and got my no seatbelt ticket dismissed.

Also re-painting my wiper arms.

That's good to hear you're back on the road.... Safe travels back home today!

That was earlier this morning before it started raining. Actually have some flash flood warnings in my county, this parking lot has about a whole inch of water on it.

I know the feeling. It's atrocious here in LA county. And our horrible roads don't make things any easier. Love how my Mazda B3000 sits high. What part of Cali are you from?

Did the whole Chemical Guys interior detail without leaving anything untouched and cleaned. I ordered some Coverking Neosupreme seat covers the first day I purchased this truck. They get delivered today but I won't install them till the seats dry out properly. Hopefully the interior won't have the cigarette smell as bad as before.

On the headlight end, I use the PIAA extreme whites in my truck, had them going on 4 years now. Proper white light and very bright all from a standard halogen that costs the same as budget hid kit. Something to look into.

Thanks, I will definitely look into the PIAA. Would you happen to know if they have good life expectancy?

Learned something new today while picking up lower ball joints for my truck. Moog now integrates their dust boot in to the ball.

Last time I bought them, which was too long ago, they looked like the one on the left. The one on the right is how they are now.
