      I got this idea from another forum, where they have a single thread (now massive) where everyone can post up what they did to their vehicle recently, when it probably isn't big enough to start up a new thread for, or for a major writeup. It was kind of fun to see what people work on, and when.

      They have everything from washing their rigs, tires, oil changes, detailing, light mods, anything that says you didn't ignore your vehicle today... :)

      I'll post up- I was sick of the sun, so I tinted the front windows today.

      ...Lol...I knew that would get to you...

      ...That's the reason I didn't mention the mud covering the inside and dirt oozing out of every nook and cranny, But I did clean the inside back in '07...:D

      Took my fuel pump out to bend the rod...now my gas guage reads right! Also siliconed my windshield again, hopefully that stops the leaks.

      Prepped the rockers for POR-15 since I have them off. Figured I might as well add an extra layer of protection since the covers were puled anyhow...

      I also epically failed at measuring a steering wheel...

      Put the truck back together, detailed the battery and changed the positive terminal connector on the harness.

      Yesterday I drove mine for the first time.... might not seem like a big deal to some guys, but, when you consider all the effort etc I put into it, then it's a big deal... and it made me smile...
