    haha i know alot of guys have said "damn that truck of yours never is dirty" well its been in the 40s here so theres alot of road spray and i've actuly been dirving the truck. reason it stays so clean when its cold and snowing is because our roads stay frozen and theres no spray of anykind.

    also, today i FINALLY figured out my surging idle/dieing problem..turned out to be vaccume line that wasnt conncted..so i'll be more willing to drive it..hopfully that will help my MPG issues also. fingers crossed!!

    but thought i'd share a few pics

    Your lucky you have a burnt orange color doesnt show as bad lol. I have black and it shows anything that is everything lol. I usually bring my truck to work the next day and clean it tho. I also wish I could get the salt painted on my truck like that it looks cool :D

    yeah we had warm winds come in from hawaii causing 90+ mpg winds and 40degree weather...alot of our snow is gone and everything is brown..really sucks it happends atleast once if not more a year.

    i've been driving the truck all day today, i fixed that vaccume line last night and that did it...its running great no surging idle or dieing. i'm also getting alot better MPG.

    before i was getting around 5-6mpg dirving without the plow around town. since i fixed it i'm now getting about 10mpg and it may be alittle better then that..so i'm excited.


    also yeah the orange hides the dirt very very well! another reason i picked it haha back is a tough color..i couldnt do it so probs to the guys with black trucks!

    yeah, the winds were nasty i could hardly get out of the truck!

    luckly its not salt :) just muddy water we dont use salt up here on the roads..thats one reason she doesnt have a spot of rust on her. when i took it all apart for paint i really looked it over good and it didnt have any.
