Yea, its nice to be independent, but when stuff breaks or gets messed up it hits you especially deep. You know when you scratch the tailgate it's painful ha ha. "Most people are like damn that sucks. I'll wax it out or have it touched up, or just leave it."
I'm like, "DAMMIT! Where is my reserve touch up black. Guys I have to go home now. My truck is scratched..." ha ha!
Thanks man same to you. its nice to not have to really on others when your stuff breaks. i pride myself on being able to do most maintenance repairs myself. not only does it save a butt load of money but if its effed up when its done ive got no one to blame but me. lol
Thanks! I appreciate it. We both have trucks that are very valuable, but we spent a fraction of the actual price. And about the ranger being your mod rod, that's the way to go. Keep the daily as a reliable daily driver. Then mod the other ride to the gills. Keep your big one clean and straight forward, and break axles on the secondary ha ha! It sucks to have your primary broken down. Props though, buddy. You've got nice rigs and truly know how to fix em up and keep em going. More people need to be like you.
i checked out your pictures, nice looking truck man, i like how you painted the wheels. I bought my truck in may of 09 for $6,000, put about $2000 worth of parts into it for repairs and finished the rebuild in november of 09. ive put just over 18k on it since then and i sure love this truck. i havent done much in the way of customizing and i dont plan to. i did add a tuner and some other small stuff and i might add an exhaust later but ive got a modified ranger that i have to play with so this truck will stay mostly stock.
I got it during my winter break for my freshman year of college. That was December of 2009. I fixed it up and customized it just a little by January 2010. Like the 6th or something. I drove it a little and made sure it wouldn't explode or anything. Got it registered, inspected, and insured. Then I drove it 320 miles back to college and it's been fine ever since. Coming up on a year and a half and I've put about 15K (miles) on it. Then put about another $4,000 in custom stuff and aftermarket products on it. What about yours?
Wow, you and I have lots in common. For starters, my dad owns a body shop. Also, my Scab 150 was a totaled vehicle with a salvage title. Got it for like $4500 and put another $1,500-$2,000 into it and lots of love and got Darthvader! I love being in the business! I saw you on the "other vehicles" thread. I saw the salvage rebuild in your sig.
