Is your truck your valentine?

Well since my truck is my valentine this year I figured I'd spend a little money on her. xtreme Diesel has 10% off through today so I ordered up my exhaust finally. Just thought I'd let everyone know about the discount that they have for this hallmark holiday. It worked on me lol.

- Seeing that this is my 35th Valentine's Day with the Mrs, I do believe that she wouldn't like me directing my attention to the truck. As much as I love my truck, my wife is a bunch higher on the list!!

If I had the money at the moment I would buy something for the truck, but the wife takes priority. We did our thing on Saturday because she has to work tonight. I'm making home made Fettucine Alfredo, buying some candy, and flowers and surprising her at work. oh and I'm dressing up too...

As soon as taxes are back the modding begins...

My truck is my Valentine this year also, finally gonna break down and get a 2.5" leveling kit and 4" rear block to give her a nice lift to match my 315/70r17's. Also some HID's, HD headlights and a 5" straightpipe turbo back. But i think i'll wait till my tax returns show up first.

She did get an early Valentines day present on Friday though! one of the batteries died and she wouldn't start, so i replaced them both on Friday.
One thing is for sure, the truck is about as expensive as a woman, between oil changes, fuel filters, upgrades, tires, etc. Just doesn't put out like a woman.

So my exhaust was on back order. I ended up calling them and bought the next level up, they took 11% off (apparently thats the most MBRP allows it's retailers to discount their product), gave me free 2 day shipping, and a free T-Shirt. Good to see they are helping me out when they didn't have to do a thing. That was a good first experience with them for sure.
