Default Happy 2-year Anniversary Truck!! (56k, shat load of pics)

Well, two years ago today I picked up my truck! Its been a great two years with my first 4x4 truck. We have been through some nice adventures! Picked her up with 26,700 on the clock and should hit 70k in the next two weeks. She has seen her fair share of changes from stock with three different wheels, two sets of tires and the few things i have added to her:

Bone Stock:




Engagement at the Beach:







Wheel swap with ranger_1999







Minor Wheeling:








More boat pulling:




Blueridge Parkway:





New tires:



SNOW Excursions:









Tint:




LII Tow Hooks:



Second Snow:









Old man trying to run me over when i got this shot:



Wheeling trip to Pisgah National Forest with ranger_1999





3rd snow:





Photoshoots:







Easter:







Another photoshoot:











THE NEW WHEELS!





OBX 2010 Ranger meet:











THE MUD CARNAGE and CLEANUP












The aftermath;









Front suspension:





Motor:





New wheels caked:



Then it came the fun part of getting mud off:



My front end was submerged, so you can imagine the mud that was in it:



Clean motor:





Bed off, the rearend was actually the worse, the spare tire was a bowl of mud:







Finally back together:







Stone Mountain, NC







Front oil seal and waterpump troubles:



The new Domelight:



Toolbox polishing



More phototaking:







So As you can see, we have already been though ALOT!!! lol. I love this truck and she has been good to me!

nice lookin pics, I like the Snow pics but so glad I do not have to deal with it anymore.

Also it looks like that mud hole gave you some quality time with your truck ...takin it all apart and re-installing now that is quality time

^^no kidding. I would have just put on a pair of goggles and laid under the truck with a pressure washer. A disassembly to clean it off is dedication, man...pure dedication.
