finally some seat time

hey all, i finally got a chance to take my new ride on a decent road trip. took a few hours and toured around the alberta countryside killing mosquitoes (so much for the nice polished bumper). the truck ran great! no squeaks, no rattles, shifts nice, drives straight, very solid feeling for a 16 yr. old truck. only issue i had was when a b-train tanker semi went by me and my drivers side bed rail cap decided it didn't want to continue on the rest of the trip, luckily no one was behind me and the cap landed on the side of the road so nobody could run it over before i could get turned around and pick it up
all in all an a great ford truck....love it

I got rid of my bedrail caps when I had the box Linex-ed. Only cost me another $40 but well worth it. Ppl have asked me if they are factory and I tell em no its better than factory.


Whaddya mean I dont pay my bills?? Whydya think I'm broke!!

I actually talked to the dealer today that does the linings on the front of our office trailers and he said the same thing, ditch the caps and line it. he deals with rhino liner.
