I hope you got the truck in time to save it. The guy you bought it from sounds like a complete idiot. Did he just use it as a beater or something? That truck isn't a beater.

I feel as if we did. He is an idiot. His first vehicle, his dd, and then his toy on the weekends. It will never see mud like that again. It will see sand this weekend but never mud.

Thats good. Have fun in the sand, but take it easy! From the pictures it looks like he didn't know how much mud was too much.

Im easy on her. He didn't know how good of a truck he had in the first place. It seems that he wanted to fit in with the crowd. Oh well. Shes mine now, fixed up and ready for Corolla Saturday. Ill post some pictures.

It's not that hard to replace the light. Mine stays on too but I'm not OCD about it I'd rather just not move my cb radio and dig around in the dash. But! It does disable your airbag system.
I don't really hate anything about my truck, I love it and I'm keeping it forever

Back in the day (ok, so I'm getting on and remember working on '60's cars) the clutch slave was bolted on the outside of the bell. Made disconnecting it (and bleeding it) a SNAP!!!!

I'm hating on my American Racing Outlaw II wheels. A year and a half old, and the clearcoat is pealing. I'm considering going to some, forbid the thought, gaudy chrome wheels. Anyone think they'll hold up better? Maybe just plastidip the ones I have for a winter wheel?
