    OME 885 coils & front shocks, with TT top plate, Total Chaos UCA, Rear OME extended shocks, Rear TSB, Rear Toytec AAL, trimmed the saber-tooth-tiger-long-ass mud flaps. 17" XD Revolver rims, 265/75/17 BFG AT KO's. Ripped out the crappy FM Modulator & installed a PA-15-toy interface. OEM bed matt.
    We all know the economy is in the crapper. I'm sure everyone knows someone who has lost their job, took a paycut, or worse. Everyone is effected one way or the other.

    Having said that, hopefully most of us still feel fortunate to survive, enjoy life, & spend time with family & friends. It's important for everyone to stick together.

    Another sector that is hurting these days are homeless shelters & food banks. It seems when times get tough, these places are effected even more.
    I'm sure even the smaller towns have shelters & food kitchens that would be grateful for a phone call to ask how can you help. It could be some old blankets/ clothes, new toys for kids, canned goods, or even cash.

    For as much joy it brings to the people you help, it will bring you even more!

    Amen!

    Anytime I have clothes I wanna get rid of, I always take it to Good Will.

    This year ..I'm donating a Turkey to The Mission. That's paticularly important - as it's a tribute to my father-in-law who passed away last fall. He donated Turkeys every year.

    In the past, I've organized food donations myself through various clubs I'm in.

    It is a lot of fun!

    Get involved! Lots of Associations are in-need of volunteers to deliver food, sort/collect toys, etc.
