Oregon Long Bed Build

This probably got stressful but it’s fun to push the limits of your truck while it is still stock. Obviously you don’t want to break anything or be in a particularly sticky situation, but hey. I did a lot of this when mine was stock and I always learned from it.

Mostly learned how to spend all the money.

Haha. Spot on with that statement, for sure thought it wasn’t getting out and was getting very nervous. Very much looking forward to the upgrades
 
Welp windshield got hit by a rock on the 5 freeway in Portland

Update to my windshield, I had to re schedule the appointment from this past Wednesday to today (Friday). As expected they contract out their glass work. Well apparently when I rescheduled the service coordinator (new employee) did not notify the glass company.
So the wait is now longer than expected.

Luckily they gave me a rental.

Service department is pissed at the lady who rescheduled the appointment.
 
So I haven’t really been on here lately and feel bad about. Recently, I have installed amber pod fog lights and a lower bumper light that look amazing. For now I’m a point where I’m done with lights. On to the upgrades that actually matter. I’ve also started a YouTube channel with random bs and my travels. Only have a intro video currently, but I’m hoping it grows. I’ll drop the link here.
Also doing a Browns Camp trail run this Sunday near Portland. Message me for details.

I also have a custom bed rack in the works that will carry camping and recovery gear. I’m very excited. I found a local metal shop that is saving me huge
 
Local metal shop you say?

Also, FYI, I just stopped going to Kendall and now go to Litha for repairs. They are 100x better!

Wheel/tire combo is perfect. Stance looks great. Where you able to get that camber adjusted?
