We decided to use a big chunk of this year's tax return money and pay off my truck 2.5 years early. I'd like to upgrade to a different truck, but it's not in the budget right now.
So I decided instead of upgrading trucks, I'd upgrade my current truck and take care of a list of things that have been bugging me, so I will be happy driving it a few more years.
Started by ordering a Bakflip tonneau cover to replace the cap I had on it that I hated. I installed that on Tuesday.
The tonneau didn't fit with the factory plastic bedliner, so I ordered a Bedrug bedliner. (been wanting one anyway)
Friday I officially paid my truck off. What a great feeling!:cool:
I went home from work Friday to pick up my new Bedrug that was just delivered, and the other stuff I needed to install it, and drove back to work so I could pull the truck inside to do the install, as it was too cold and rainy to do it outside.

Then, on the way home after installing the bedliner, I got a nice big stone chip in my windshield! Talk about a buzz kill! I've already had to replace the original windshield, and already had one stone chip in the replacement. This chip is even bigger. Now I gotta get that fixed on Tuesday. :mad:

Then, along with the other upgrades I decided I was tired of the noisy dual exhaust I had put on it several years ago. So Saturday I went in and had a stock muffler and tailpipe put back on. Nice and quiet again. I liked the duals at first, but grew tired of it, being a daily driver.

Still have a few more things to take care of, like speakers that go in and out, and wheels. The clearcoat was already peeling off the wheels when I bought the truck so they have always looked like crap. I may try to refinish them myself or replace them if I find a good deal.

It's been a great truck so far and I figure if I invest some money to make it more to my liking, it's cheaper than financing another truck.

So here are some pics I took Friday after I installed the Bedrug.

The new tonneau cover, Bakflip MX4:

And the new Bedrug bedliner which by the way is very easy on the knees if you ever have to kneel/crawl on your truck bed:

One very important feature on this tonneau cover, is the fact that with the locking rods, you can drive with it all the way open like this, for full bed access.
It'll work well with the 2x4 bike rack I built a few years ago.

Paying of your truck 2 1/2 years EARLY--congrats. Good move.

I got the bike LAST week , and got the wheels THIS week . Unexpected surprise at a local Swap Meet. 1955 Schwinn Tiger. Someone spent some time re-working ( and painting) this into their rendition of a "Cruiser" . Not the best paint , pinstriping and decal placement . BUT.........................it had "Parts" I needed, and was dirt cheap.................Still gettin' things in order, but did find a set of S-7 wheels and tires at the Almost Spring Swap meet This weekend , and put those on . The bike had aftermarket wheels, and 2.125" wide tires . ( now they reside on another bike) The S-7 's are SO MUCH BETTER ! The last picture is how it was when I brought it home ( Last Week) ALSO .......................had removed the light , and then later noticed it had been converted to LED . SCORE !

I picked up this clean mid 80's telescope yesterday afternoon. I have been wanting to find a larger one like this for a while. It also came with its original packaging / instructions, and a few extra eye pieces that were not included in the original kit.

Yesterday evening I assembled it, and then I took it out into the yard and was happy with its performance. Everything up in the sky looked good to me, but I also do not have anything equilvelent to compare it to. This morning I just dis-assembled and re lubed its pivots and crank gears. Next I will have to figure out a way to attatch a camera to its eyepiece.
