Default This is the new girl!

I figured I'd go ahead and start one of these since I've got some plans.

After I lost my '96 I bought this, a 2000 that was originally a roadside service truck. Had 126,000 miles on it and i bought it in Santa Barbara in late January. Here's the girl the day I got her:



First thing I did was clean the engine bay:




Next I put on a set of 31X10.5X15s on soft 8's that I had laying around from an old trade



there's more I'll put up tonight...pics soon!
