Default Whats your summer project for your truck?

Well since I won't be living on the farm this summer because of my job I figure I'll have alot of time to take care of some stuff on the truck. The big project I have planed for the summer is to paint everything under the truck. I figure I'll just do a little everyday after work. I'll start with the stuff you can see like the front end and the rear axle then the wheel wells then then work on the middle.

The other little project I'm gonna do is install some kind of lighting in the bed. I already have lights in my cap but I'll be taking it off for the summer and using my tauno cover so I'll also have to install rod holder under the cover somehow cause I plan on fishing alot. Since my backup lights are on the cap, I'll need to install some backup lights on the truck itself.

What are you guys planning on doing to your trucks over the summer?

I still want to replace my shitty ripped bench seat with some buckets. I want to line the bed, and because I am a dumb shit and dented my fender, I will either find a replacement, or pound mine out. Having more than one vehicle, its tough to decide which one to dump money into.
