Because it was such a nice day today (and very much unlike my previous post in this thread), I actually spent some time doing some detailing work on my truck instead of just washing to get the salt off. I forgot to get a picture before it got dark though. It'll still need a full detailing after I'm confident that the crap weather is over for the season, but it felt good to be doing more than just running it through the touchless carwash.

I also gave my truck and my wife's Charger a much needed bath I also changed the oil and greased the tie rods on Sunday. Then when I woke up to go to work and both were covered in yellow pollen.

Cleaned the salt off my suspension and installed summer wheels. Preventative maintenance goes a long way

Im on a never ending quest to gather up enough pop cans so I can buy a nice extended cab or crew cab, so I don't have to hide my head when im driving this strippy standard cab of mine. So people don't have to feel sorry for me.

Had to get out the drill and I need to figure out what I want for frames, probably simple black.


What is that in your receiver?

It's a D-ring receiver. I have one too. Works well for pulling people

OK I see now. When I first saw it I thought it looked like two polyurethane rollers for some reason, lol. Must have been the color of the D-ring.

Yea, that's it, helps roll up on those peoples hoods that box me in :mrgreen:

I don't have anything to tow, but the occasion to pull someone/something does arise from time to time.

I keep one of these in my tow/recovery kit for attaching straps too. Have a few D-rings in there too just in case

Hey Guys, first post here. This was yesterday, but had the Super 44 installed. Gonna dump it this weekend I think. Also installed a 2.5" Motofab level kit a couple of weeks ago. Far from done, but I'll keep posting as i go. Thank you to everyone in advance. This forum is a fountain of knowledge!
