What have you done for your truck today?

Today I took my truck out for a trail ride. It is much happier now. Smile
We did a trail known as the Route of All Evil. There was no water like there typically is in the spring, but there were a few new log crossings. One was on an uphill section. Good times. Big Grin

Later, I washed off the mud and put the rack on. We plan to go play in a pond out in the national forest tomorrow. Take the dog swimming and such.

Thanks. Your Hardbody is also sharp. 185185

Zero Six LE, your truck is looking great. I really do like the cowl pieces painted to match. If I were a little younger I might try that, but not so much now.

Thank you so much, Okie. I only painted the small outer cowl pieces. I had the other things painted by the pros.

Sorry. I left the camera in the truck while we were in the boat. Sad
The dog swam alongside most of the time. She went ashore to catch her breath a few times. She had a great time.

I took off my front sway bar tonight since I found out one of the holes has been slowly wearing out, causing it to jump around and make a very loud clunking noise every time I go over a bump! Made a metal sleeve tonight on the lathe, will drill out the sway bar and press in the sleeve later this week. Truck needs a good wash+polish+wax but we'll wait until closer to November.


Balage, nice setup.

Garage is awesome... I like the redneck "hoist" 303



But really... it's a great idea.

I have had a Rockford Fosgate 10" P3 shallow sub for some time now. I picked up an MTX 600W @ 2ohm JackHammer sub and a 0 gage dual amp wiring kit. Just have to get some MDF to build a box.

It's aluminum mesh bought at a local parts store. Just sandwiched between the V grille and the honeycomb.

Most likely going to paint it black.

That I did. I've been driving it for almost a week.... it's going black this weekend! Big Grin

The big difference was the amount of light from my PIAAs that actually gets through now. That's the reason I did the mesh grille, so I could really use the fogs. Especially with winter creeping up on us up here, the days are getting noticably darker. May move them a little closer together, but it's definitely an improvement.

Picking up a couple truck goodies on Saturday. Superchips Cortex tuner and a Recon tailgate LED light bar.


Cool
