Looks great...but now you've got this HUGE tailgate handle shaped hole in your tailgate

Very nice, but it wouldn't work for me, I have to lower my tailgate to unfasten my tonneau cover.

Nice shaved handle, those always look super clean!

I went the other way with a new model reverse camera handle ptm'd. Just waiting for an adapter harness to hook it into the wiring from my crappy plate mounted reverse camera.

Front brakes...pads and rotors

Okay, okay...not so much as today as a few Saturdays ago, sorry.

Earline (yes, I named my GREY truck Earline)...why Earline?
Good question, I'm glad you asked...I like Earl Grey tea, my truck is grey, Earline is the feminine form of Earl, so it just stood to reason in my twisted brain to name my GREY truck Earline.

Anyway, she developed a grinding noise from the brakes and she wasn't stopping so well.
So I did a wheel window check of the front rotors...outside looked and felt fine so I pulled a wheel to check out the backside...not good, repeat, not good, the inside pads were down to metal and the discs were being ground up.

So...I bought new pads and rotors at Autozone, put them on a couple of weekends back...lo and behold, no more grinding

I don't know your health situation, and I'm not gonna ask, but because of some old injuries that came from my using my Motorcycle to stop a truck (injuries'll be 35 years old on 20 May).
I use handicapped parking.
Viola, no more *** holes banging into the side of my truck.

I changed the oil a couple of days ago. Think I'll add fuel in a few more days.
