For sure Pete.
I built the house first and am still waiting on the shop I was supposed to have 10 years ago.

Speaking of shops, is a guesstimate of $100 a yard for concrete w/ fiber a good ball park figure?

I think fiber runs just over 100 but it'll get you in the ball park.

Haven't updated this lately.  Over the summer I decided to trade my Z71 in on a 2013 Ford F250 at Havana Ford.  My Z went to auction and ended up on Tennessee Street.  A friend of mines son bought and it now has a lift and 35's under it.

This is the day I brought it home for the weekend before the purchase.  What's funny is that I had went to our new Autozone in Havana to get new pads for the front and rear of the Z and saw this sitting out in front of Havana Ford.  Turned around, took it for test ride for an hour and so (back to house/around the hood) and the wife fell in love with it, as did I.  So, I went back up to dealership and signed the paperwork to drive it for the weekend.  Went over it with a fine tooth comb all day Sunday.  Made me list of things I wanted fixed or needed attention.  Went back up and Monday and bought it, they fixed or made right everyone of my concerns.  Truck on had 40,000 miles on it, a doctor in Tally drove it and he lived in Monticello.

The only thing I have done to it and tint the front windows and add some lowprofile ventshades until yesterday.  I have been wanting/looking for a Ranchhand brush guard since I got the truck.  Didn't want to buy a new one.  Finally found one on CL yesterday and got it for $350 and it's only a year old. :)

Haven't had time to mount it yet, but will soon.

Old SOLO is doing alright.  It gave me a little trouble a week ago or so ago.  The upper strut mount dry rotted and came apart, luckily I heard/felt it when it happened near my house in 1st gear.  I cringe every time I think of it happening while driving down the road.

Been tossing around the idea of selling it, I want another Tacoma but a four door.  So ya'll keep a lookout out for one.

And have you let Jess know what all problems you are having with Solo?

Why would I let her know of the problems? It's not her problem. :) This is a common problem with these trailmaster lifts. It was a bad design with the strut being outside the spring. The strut mount wears out and fails. What other problems are you referring to?

Which rims are too much for which truck? I know you don't mean the solo, that profile is PERFECT!

No no, the rims on Solo truck are fine. His on GM. The tires looked ballooned.
Didn't you break an axle a while back on Solo?

I got 99 problems so I SAS ...now I got 100 problems.

I agree about those big chrome rims.

Not so much about the SAS.

Picked up some new tires for SOLO off of Craigslist last week.  Haven't had time to switch them over to my 15x12's.  They came on some 15x10 8 lug wagon wheels.

New boggers look good, Natty. I saw them on FB, the pics don't seem to work here :(

What are you doing with the old ones?

I was wondering the same thing.
Did those new Boggers come from Hosford. I think I saw a new set for sale over that way.
