    Wiped off the dash and shook out the floor matts :cool: oh yeah . . .

    Also cleared out the bed for the most part since camping season is upon us.

    Outside is still nasty dirty though :(

    Detailed the inside of my truck as well, and also wired up some LED bolts cause license plate lights look out of place.

    It has saved me quite a few dents already. But you'll notice on the passenger side I slid past a tree with the rear fender bar but whacked the rear quarter panel when it slid off, lol

    I lowered my t-bars about 1/2" and tightened my squeaking AC belt.

    Out with the old and in with the free, got this from a friend who has a stereo shop. It's a low end model, but it still sounds way better than the cheap Sony it replaced. Now I need to get a new bezel, the PO hacked it up to fit a single din with the trim ring.

    got my electric taurus fan fitted in and most of my wiring and relays hooked up. just need to decided on where to attach the relays in my engine bay and then tie into power. It's gonna be automatically controlled by the thermostat for low speed and i have a manual override to engage high speed, had one set up similar on my old taco. These fans move TONS of air, high is around 4500CFM and low 2500 i believe, just what i need to keep the motor at a good temp for what is looking like will be one hell of a hot summer(already getting to low 90's some days)
