I'm sure. I was straight giddy after finishing my truck. I always looked at it enviously and thought "oh yeah, thats mine".

On a side note, since its been on jack stands, then with the front end lifted first, I found the source of my coolant loss. I chased every line I could in hopes to find a leak (meaning no head gasket issues) and finally I got dripped on the other day while under the vehicle. I have a radiator end cap going bad. So yay for a minor problem, boo for replacing the radiator.

This lift was the most difficult lift I've ever done on a vehicle. At least its done now. Just gotta trim the fenders up a bit so I can stuff the tires.

Here it was the day I got it.


And now how it sits today. It's got one of the worse "fresh lift" rakes i've ever seen. If i doesn't settle out i'm going to have to think about different coils in the front.

Right behind walmart? Ever check out the trails on bell "mtn"? I know a lot of them are gone cause of new construction, but might still be some good places to take the dog.

Yea. I did go up the mountian on my mtbike a few weeks ago. Came down with two flat tires, and my dog disappeared for about 30 minutes. Anyway, it is a pretty neat area, wouldnt take Big Blue though. Knuckleheads get arrested all the time up there for drinking and other mischief.

There is a new trail near the development that used to have a sign posted, but it's gone now. Needless to say, I have had my eye on it!

I think I know where you are talking about. My buddy's little brother got his jeep stuck back there in what some might call a big hole and I went back there in my truck to pull him out. Cops ended up coming back there. That was about a year and a half ago though. Might be different. Either way, not much fun back there unless you like wallowing around in mud.

Looks good bud! Now hopefully I can get mine out of the Transmission shop tomorrow and we can investigate mine a little and get it cleaned up Saturday...

Are we doing the trimming at my house?

You'll get used to the trail rash eventually.

Can't wait to take ya'll up that trail again when it's daylight.
