    When I went to leave this morning my tailgate was down and the black cables were hanging "unattached"

    Thanks to the 99 cent hose clamp that CHRIS4x4 sent me, the worthless fucks left empty handed!!!!!!!!!! And thank god they didnt mess anything up, cuz I am pretty sure they were pissed.


    Chris I owe you another 12 pack my friend.... :cool: thanks buddy

    Where in east Texas do you live? I have the hoseclamp but am worried that they can just rip that off. Moving to Fort Worth in 3 months...hopefully not a big occurrence up there

    Don't have my truck yet but if some one can email the info on the clamp I would appreciate it. I have an idea of how it goes on but more info would help.

    Thanks
