Gas mileage. Always maintained and tuned to tip-top shape but still feel as though I have to refill too often for a lil' 3.0 V6. (Though it must just be in the nature of a truck, huh?)

Silicone spry holds up better than WD-40 for door seals.

the stupid fan clutch is locked up (making crappy mileage into shitty mileage) and the transfer case makes that gawd awful "jingle" noise... other than that, I still like the old hoopdy.

How I was driving home, and the heater core decided to just puke coolant, dumping most of my coolant either in the cab or on the road, leaving me stranded waiting for water and a piece of pipe

...Im cold now...

My only lift option is the spindle lift, that I have vinyl seats, that I don't have a bed extender and no fenders, that everyone asks why I put so much money into it (Pshha! I get the cheapest prices for everything), and that there is so much I want to do to it! Haha! I love my truck! No real reason to hate it unless a repair goes wrong, before I finally fix it.

What bothers me is this little bump on my bumper I noticed it and can't stop looking at it, and also my truck isn't to my badass specifications yet...

But hey, it beats paying like $150 for bigger trucks.

I hate that with no heater core, that its impossible to keep the windsheild clear, especially in the rain unless you have a rag
