    What you need to do is sell her on the idea that you are somehow making the truck better so she is OK with the expense.

    Years ago when I had my Tundra, I had purchased a set of the Bilstein 5100 Lifting Shocks with some birthday money from Mom and Dad, but I needed to figure out a way to get them installed without her blowing a gasket over the installation cost. Then one way we were walking across a parking lot. She looked at my truck from a distance and asked "Why is the front end of your truck lower than the back end?" referring to the factory rake.

    Ah, now's my chance. I cranked up the Bullshit Generator to full power and replied "That's because the front shock absorbers are wearing out. The weight of the engine is causing them to sag."

    Her response: "Well you better get that fixed. We can't afford to buy a new truck right now so we need to take care of the one we have."

    Oh, Wifey, you were always such a prudent one. "OK, I'll set up an appointment to get it taken care of."

    Her: "Alright, but don't wait too long."

    Speaking of Wifey, she asked me today when the gang was going to have another Winery get-together. Strangely, she likes getting together with our crew. Chris, since you usually set these things up, what say you?

    Hell, you can join our group. If they let me in, it's obvious we'll take anyone. :)

    Well being as I now work at a winery I will have to check around and see what is happening. Wilderness on 3 usually has Saturday activities. I’ll see what’s happening , post it, and y’all can go to whatever you’d like. Idk if I’ll. E able to make it to any but they should be fun. I believe Old House has their pub open now (adults only) also

    Sorry for my absence. I’ve been traveling a lot down to Austin for work, and now I am transferring down to Quantico, which means a lot less commute time! :bananadance:

    Chris, what are you doing at the winery? I didn’t realize you left the airport? Hope this is a better gig for you.

    Damn sorry to hear they let you go, but awesome that it’s less stress for you. Hopefully you guys are still able to go camping and enjoy getting out.

    So I'm not going to get it, but here was my available find that I would have thrown on my truck if it was my daily driver...the wife likes to be a little more incognito.

    First come, first serve!
