Official what did you do to your truck today thread.

so i mighta stolen this idea from another forum. but it goes like this. you post what you did to your truck that day. so if you did anything come post it.

gives us each an idea of what everyone's doing to their trucks maintenance and mod wise. it gets to be a long thread and its kinda cool to see what we each did today. try to keep it on topic, but some discussion is allowed.

ex. (ill go first)

power washed it off to get the soap off it from tinting my windows 35 percent yesterday. i got silver stars put in today, there kind of annoying because they have a gasket on the back of the bulb and so does the head light, so to twist it in you have to twist the bulb rubber to rubber. cant wait for it to get dark and for a couple days to pass so i can put my windows down.

Going in about a half hour to get some dents pulled. Last fall I accidentally rammed the Left front fender into my garbage can. Left a nice huge dent.

I also have a couple small ones from *** holes who can't stop their doors from hitting mine. Even with the Step bars...

Going to install the bull bar that I ordered last week in a drunken haze and forgot about. See my hate thread and https://www.f150online.com/forums/20...tow-hooks.html

Also, helping a friend rebuild his VW 1.8T

Too funny! I bought my truck in a drunken haze. Now that's the only way I can work on it!

Didn't do much today other than finding a local gas station that has 100% 93 octane gas. Filled it up and loaded the 93 custom performance tune on my Gryphon. Runs great!

I watched my wife drive off in it loaded with baby crap (not literally) that's going to a sale and not coming back cause I've moved it out of the basement 4 times now. Strict instructions "NO DRIVETHRUS" cause she likes to curb my tires and she will die if she screws up my wheels, lol
