Everybody I asked said that it needed to be replaced, and that it was Un-Fixable.

I just want the thing to be problem free.....So I guess I figured I'd rather be safe than sorry!

I think it needs some more lights, why don't you run uo to the truck stop and get some more LED's for it.

Mainly because my wife does not think it needs any more!

Shhhhh...don't tell her but.......

I do think some cab lights, a couple amber driving lights and maybe a few marker lights under the doors are what I'd do next.

Well...I've been using the truck for 6 or 7 weeks now. First tank was about 11mpg. Second tank was 11.7mpg.

The 55gal tank will last about 3 weeks. Not too shabby.

Also, I have been driving it just as it looks in these pics. Need to "finish" a few things, but I'm just happy to be using it!
