been a good day
You'd think with all the technology there would be some type of affordable wireless internet anywhere on earth. I had 5mb for 3 years because att/directtv had the contract. Over priced and crap for 3 kids and 2 adults on tablets computers etc... I was able to find a loop hole and get Comcast Business. Now I have 50mb connection.

yea the ONLY game here is the company i used to do jobs for and hateed cause they lie and just dont give a damn about the customer. i have been there when tech support is laughing with a customer on hold about how chit the poor guys internet is.
that is the kind of BS i get to deal with as a customer now. most times i dont even bother calling when its down because they will eventually stop your service if you coplain too much...
thats customer service

anyways i pay for business service 100 a month supposed to get ten gig speeds.
lucky when i get 2 down
uploads never been over 1

Well I finally have an exhaust on the truck again lol. I went with a 4" turbo back straight pipe. The downpipe removal wan't as hard for me as it seems like it is for everyone else, the only issue I had was the bolt for the clamp snapped so I have to track down a new bolt but it only comes with the clamp. At least it was only $40. I put a stiff blade in the sawzall and used it like an air chisel to break the clamp free and everything came out pretty easy. The hardest part was trying to get this 4" down pipe in. I ended up angling it the best I could and using a jack to just force it through. The sound difference is amazing! You can definitely hear the turbo spool up lol.

I also FINALLY found a high top canopy! This thing is in pristine condition and the guy only wanted $150 for it. Normally I'd talk people down on price and the guy was just going to take it to the dump anyway but this thing is worth $500 easy so I just handed him the cash. I told him I only have 20's so I'll give him $160 if he helps load it on the truck.




Yes the exhaust is angled up in the pic, I forgot to tighten one of the clamps but it's all squared away now. I might cut 2-3 inches off the tip though, I don't like how far it protrudes.

I need to drive the truck more.... But with diesel over $3.50/gallon, it’s a bit of a deterrent to drive it regularly...

@Red Ford that was a steal on that shell! Looks nice, too. In my mind that is a mid-height which I prefer to the high-roof versions.

Right? When I left diesel was still just barely under $3/gal and I get back 40 days later now all of the sudden we're almost hitting the $3.50 mark! Really sucks because the truck is my only vehicle but when I'm in the state I have to drive 128 miles round trip to the shop and back lol. Being young sucks because even if I got a little rat box car insurance would still be more than what I'd be saving in fuel.

I couldn't believe I found it for so cheap! I want a true high top but I can't find anything taller than this for a short bed, what I really want is one of those 48" shells with the cab over but those are so expensive.

Yeah, I'm young too, and single. So I get shafted pretty good on insurance and taxes. But I'm fortunate that God has blessed me with a great job to be able to afford the toys I want. It does help that I'm only 10 miles from work though!

Love them older King Ranch's... Can't beat those amazing seats!

Summertime diesel hikes just mean give me an excuse to put more miles on the Harley. Unfortunately, the non-ethanol premium is up to well over 4 bucks/gal now, but at 40 MPG it is still more economical than the truck. Doesn't haul much though.
