in another 1,000 miles....

I will have finally "broken in" my 7.3

But....in the meantime, I bought paintable front and rear bumpers, and drivers and passenger bedside patch panels, and the truck will be going into the body shop. also getting the rust on the bottom of the passenger side doors fixed. (already had the driver side fixed this spring)

Yeah, I don't drive a lot so my miles stay pretty low. Unless I take a road trip anywhere, I really don't drive my truck all summer, and my work is ~ 8 miles from home, and my school is maybe ~15 miles away, so I luckily stay close to home for everything!

I have been counting down the miles too. Rebuilt the motor over the summer and just now I have 1k on the new motor. Looking forward to changing the oil today!

Man I hope I never have to rebuild the motor in my truck! That would suck big time! Although I would probably build a fummins if that issue were to arise!
