I have to say I hate the stupid small jump seats in the back if only they made the cab 6 inches longer, and put a real supercab it would make traveling back there easier ! Then again I regularly go snowboarding etc with 4 guys in the cab...

what colour is your truck?

I had just gotten out of the carwash taking my time to make sure I spray any slush or water residue from the roads on the truck when a Corolla sprayed slush on my truck FML!

That's definitely understandable, I only have 800 into my system though. That's a new head unit, 4 speakers, amp, wiring, sub, and box, and I love it. I'm not out to spend thousands, but it-shirts cool to hear

I find they always overkill with the road salt here. makes owning a vehicle difficult since your worry about rust all the time.

Different terms through out the country like camper shell, bed cap, and topper. We just call it popping the clutch here.

stupid cap, i spend 2 days trying to figure out a new weatherstripping layout for it that will fill the 1/2" gap at the front of the bed, finally got that done and spent another 20 minutes tightening the clamps down after triple checking to make sure it's lined up proper... and now the stupid back door dosin't want to latch. so now i get to untighten the clamps and move the whole thing back a fraction of an inch so i can latch the damn door.

Hooked up their jump box and gave the battery enough of a boost to turn the starter over.
