I hate thinking about updating trucks. My dd is 15 years old, I have had it 12. Its been a good truck and still is... I hate working on it though. On top of that working on that pulls time and funding away from my Ranger which I enjoy working on. It is starting to get to the tipping point of if I can't afford to work on my Ranger and I don't have time to work on my Ranger... I just as soon not be working on something I don't like working on.

After awhile it feels like the ship is sinking...

i seem to have gotton the nickname "old school" not sure if its because of what i drive or the classic rock ('80's) im always listening to. the '05 to me is a brand-new truck (under 20K miles) and my other stuff doesnt seem that old to me. what does floor me is when i realize ive been out of school for 30 years..... damn where did that time go?
