15 yrs old!!

well fellas, today is officially my trucks birthday! it was built june of 96, so i figured that was enough for a celebration. she's going to get washed first thing in the morning, and then for the fun stuff. i'm ordering a TW chip and 5" exhaust. Then i'm going to black out the cab lights, tail lights, and turn signals, and then paint the grill inserts. it should look pretty good when its done, and run a lot better once it all gets in. i'll post pics up when i'm done!

We still have one day left in May. jkjkjk

They get old quick huh? My brother has an 01 I cant believe we've had it for 10 years already!
But it sounds like the modding is moving swiftly. Sounds like a good plan of action so far. What color are you doing the inserts?
Also if you have the time after washing it put on a nice coat of wax. You'll be in love then, and your paint will look alot better longer.

haha, i know, but close enough i guess.

the mods are coming along pretty well. i'm going to pick up the exhuast when i go to houston in two weeks so i should have money for the gauges by then too. i'm going to paint the inserts on the grill black. i've seen a couple on here where it looks really good. it still has the main chrome grill, but the black inserts really set it apart. and if i can squeeze in some time, i will definitely throw some wax on. i can't wait to get it cleaned up and get some of my own touch done on it!
