    Well here is the clean version of my 05 Stocko Taco Turd!!

    Shes been my road warrior for almost 5 years now, time for some mods.

    One last look before the transformation begins....

    Ok I'll try address everything in one post..

    First off bought it in March of 05, I drove this thing as a franchise consultant in the state of Texas for the first three years I owned. I hit the 100k mark in January of 07.

    As far as maintenance I have not done much, at 86k I replaced the Rugged Trails with another set, at 111k I had the pads replaced and rotors turned ( its due for new ones ) and of coarse regular oil changes.

    The reason I have not done any mods up until this point is because my time has been spent working on the two build threads below.
