That looks really good!

Well we got our snow. I’m ready to be complaining about the heat again

Did I miss something, Paw - why was your truck in the shop to begin with?

That Caribou accent really improves the appearance of your truck - that’s an awful lot of sheet metal to be painted monotone silver or tan.....

Two weeks ago I was hit by a truck that was merging onto Hwy 90. I saw the traffic merging so I got into the left lane doing close to 70 mph and he came all the way over and we bumped. Lucky all I had was a broken mirror and two scuffs on each passenger side door from his mirror hitting my truck...could have been a lot worse. He bumped me with a '18 F-150 Platinum and both trucks had minimal damage.

That’s the problem with those little vehicles, they’re hard to see sometimes

Glad yo hear the damage wasn’t too serious. Still enough to ruin your day though.

Looks great! And that torque is crazy!!

Funny thing is the other driver was a retired police officer. We pulled off the side of the highway and the first thing I asked was OK explain to me that move? He said he wasn't paying attention and admitted he was wrong. Could have been a lot worse.

First day in a long time I had to put a jacket on to go out and get the paper. Temps in the 50's and windy but sunny. Heading out shortly to watch the 10 yr old grandson's flag football game. If they win the first game they'll be in the superbowl and a chance to win the championship!

It was pretty raw down here in Houston today - drizzly and I don’t think it made it out of the 40’s. Back home in Minnesota we’d refer to a day like that as “July”.....

Someone over at my storage place must know I keep cars there - I went over today to check on the ‘01 Mustang and get some firewood out of one of my units and rolled up against my garage door were two of those short Craftsmen seats with the creeper wheels on them. Not sure how long they were there, but I’m surprised nobody walked off with them! They’ll come in handy when I finally find some time to detail one of my babies.....

I've been gone for years and decided to check in just to see if this thread was still going.

Too cool.

Blessings!

Yep - there were some pretty funny and interesting characters that made this a pretty addictive board. I think smart phones and social media is what killed many boards like this.

I still have my 04 Screw, bought and sold a 2011 Lariat Screw, have a 2016 Screw for my work truck, but bought a 17 Edge last November and love it. We will drive the 04 into the ground. Best truck I've ever owned and still the best interior of all. I can't stand the new interiors.

About to sell my Mach 1 though so might need to change my handle.
