I parked it under the wrong tree during a thunderstorm and *BLAM* some big sticks dropped onto the hood and banged it up on the lip Im thankful it didnt do more damage and crack my windshield or something worse

410 : Thanks its a good thing to support those who help with problems and I used the last of my tax return to become elite I was gonna do it next week when I got paid but couldnt pass up the killer deal Rick had going and said "what the hell" and This is the first "real" auto i've had that i could fix up and customize (had an older VW Fox before that was a junker) and since i've found this site i've been finding ways and things to do to better the truck.

Man, you guys have some hawk eyes. I had to relook over all the pictures a few times to find it.

Very nice track though. When I repaint mine, it will probably be that color.

I love to scrutinize pics...I always check out objects other than the focus of the pic.:D

Are you going to get a grill with tighter lines to match the bottom one or keep it the way it is?

I was thinking about getting a tighter one but the main grille was a PITA to do in the first place...15min job my ass.

You only have one chance for a first impression.... Not bad.... Not bad at all.... I think you have that "CAN DO" personality. I wish you well.

Oh ha, one thing else, as soon as I get my next disability check, around the 16 of the month, I will be an elite. There, I put it up for everyone to see.

Not hard at all its all Plug-n-Play just plug it into the OBD2 port and you're pretty much done other than setting some stuff up like your engine size, fuel tank size and other little things. Its pretty neat and well worth the money and comes with velcro so you can pretty much stick it anywhere in the truck.

Just bought a new Head Unit and Speakers

Just bought a Panasonic CQ-C8301U Head unit and Blaupunkt PCxb573 5X7 Speakers (i know they arent anything great but im no longer 16 and want to be blown outta my truck) I got bought them for $20 a pair so i couldnt pass up the deal and they sounded pretty good not sure if im gonna power them with an amp yet RMS is 50w and peak is like 150w and sooner or later i'll reinstall my 10' sub box also but with a new sub since the old one was blown.
