Out with the old, In with the New

Post by Ty on Fri Dec 13, 2013 7:29 am

So I had a sad moment on Tuesday. After driving the truck it the past 2 storms I decided that there is something wrong in the front end. Either ball joints, idler arm, tie rods I don't know but I figured it was time to say good bye  Sad  It treated me good for almost 9 years so I felt that it deserved a small tribute!

I don't have any pics when I bought it but After I put the first set of wheels she looked like this!!



7 years later the next set of tires and wheels



And then the sadness of the tailgate crunch. I couldn't justify a $1000 tailgate. And it all went down hill from there.





You will be missed!!!

With the 3rd kid on the way we felt we needed a better family vehicle so I will have to wait a couple years for my next truck.

I miss every vehicle I've owned.  I wish I still had all of them. Very Happy

edit - I take that back. I don't miss that stupid K car, that thing can rot in hell. I wish I still had the rest of them though.

Not to burst your bubble, but that's pretty much a minivan you just bought.  Very Happy

Ouch..... Right now they're probably bigger since it's still blown out in my driveway. Laughing
And for the record I'll have bigger functioning tires on Monday hopefully...

In all reality it looks nice and I'm sure my wife would be jealous and want one. I'm still trying to talk her into getting a 4th gen though.
