Default My first new truck-has been scraped-good bye old friend.

Bought it new in '91, drove it six months before putting the lift on. It only had 93,000 miles on it.










Had a cold one and a moment of silence.

Yes I kept them, they are 15's. Not entering R&V, the family is going to Silver Lake the weekend before. Hopefully the wife will let me go and watch (drink beer).

Building him a Jeep instead. He thinks I'm building it for the wife, should be a good surprise.
