I had forgotten about that incident. I like the idea of the additional chrome strip. Blue is one of the few colors that screams for chrome trim. No other color, not even black, looks as good with some chrome imho

Looking for OBS interior parts: Graphite color code. (1999-2004 IIRC) Door panels for sure, but let me know what you have

Agreed. I don’t think I’ll ever be to the point that I’ll want to take the moldings off of this one. Curious to see how it looks, I’m thinking it’s gonna accent the length of the truck.

I’ll probably use AutoWorks this time. They’ve got a location in Holmesville, literally a mile from my place. I personally know the guys there, and know which guy to ask for when it comes to painting. Lol

Towed a trailer full of quads and bikes down to WV this past weekend. Had a blast riding with friends down there! Hoping to go one more time this year...

Truck did surprisingly good considering my valley turbo vanes aren’t moving. Stays in boost well when I’m towing, and really likes higher rpms with the SoCal cam I put in. Smokes a good bit off the line since the vanes aren’t moving.

Had a few casualties, I had to ride the spare utility on Sunday since my bike engine started acting up. Couple flats, broken chain, etc...

Bearwallow is the closest one, just a hair over 4 hours. All the rest are between 5-6...
