The shop is a 40 mile drive on the freeway and i cant risk it right now.

I tightened a couple of the bolts holing in the lines that go into the radiator where the leak seemed to be sprouting from so hopefully that helps. gonna wait to start it until it gets a little cooler out

I had a fear of putting to much money into an XL but now I really dont care anymore. I like my truck wish she was 4X4 but can't afford a nice one. (most of them are all beat up around here or over priced) But thought about painting my rims black.

i think if you painted the bumpers gloss black rather than the plastic gray color with black out heads and tails would look cooler match your grill white and keep the bug deflector

and you definitely need some rims!

I feel ya man. I dont wanna put any more money into it and i like the stock look myself. What i really want to do to complete my truck is get some police interceptor crown vic rims and put my chrome caps on them. I think then i would be satisfied. But for me my trucks perfect, but i do wish i had the 4x4...
