Default Another M******* to deal with...

Howdy Ho everybody...

I mostly joined this forum to find a grille for my 02 XLT stepside because the one that came with it is hideous (chrome flames... nuff said) but I can tell I could very easily go nuts and blow my bank account modding it out.

I just got the truck at the beginning of March after a drunk driver rear-ended my previous car while it was parked at a friend's house, and then decided to kill himself two days later when he finally got out of lockup from both the DUI accident and then beating his wife the next night. Weird story, I know.

Anyways, I hail from central Mass and spend most of my time fishing and rootin for the Sox. I'm 28 and work for a fairly large local bank as a maintenance and repair man. It's a pretty sweet gig.

Like I said, my truck's an 02 XLT stepside, it came with a nice toolbox and tonneau cover. I picked it up with just over 82k on it and have steadily been getting 17mpg with the 4.0 V6. It could use a new power window motor on the driver's side, but aside from that it's pretty clean.

It's way past my bedtime...

Sorry I didn't reply to the PM, but I left a post in that thread I started about the grille saying I was all set. Thanks for the offer though.
