The time has come

my truck is finally at the body shop. I took it there today it will be there for a week or two.. we are giving it the full treatment cowl hood new windshield doing the inside of doors/jams pulling the bed to do the front of bed and rear of cab...

I have been driving my bronco for the last 2 days while I have been slowly stripping the 250, I find it fun to drive and it gets a lot of looks due to tire noise (boggers on pavement ) BUT I miss my superduty already

I will update and post pics as things are done

this is what it looked like today when I drove it there.. the rest will be done at the body shop

Awesome man. It has been since March 18 at 12:37 PM since I have driven my truck last. On the good side it should be running again monday!! Matt P and I were talked about starting a support group for guys who haven't been able to drive their trucks
