Default First time truck owner!

I picked this one up today! 04 XLT 94,xxx miles.

The detailing starts this weekend.
Mod list to come. Feel free to give opinions. I don't know how I feel about the bed rails. Might take them off. And I think I will take the steps off as well. Haven't decided.

No point in paying $90 when $30 gives you the same sound!

If you do get a welded, be sure to paint it! I used rustoleum grill paint! It's like $4 and safe up to 1200F because apparently they rust pretty badly!

So your $30 will rust to shit, and you don't think a Flowmaster is worth the extra??
