Noah,
Glad to hear business is good.
I like the truck. Is that a K&N Air filter. I want to get one for my 01 F150. I've been to anastasia island a few times. My wife loves it there. Were coming down for a freinds wedding in a few weeks.
Chad

Chad, Can I offer a bit of advice? When your mowing make SURE you do something with the chain (like clip it back to itself or the speed lever). . . or it comes back and smacks you in the "Jimmy". Don't ask me how I know, but I used to own a TTHP.

Just thought I'd try to save you the pain and embarassment.

Nice looking truck!

You may want to look into rerouting or making a bigger shroud for that K&N. Open element filters that sit in the engine bay suck in a lot of hot air. If you can get cooler, outside air into the filter, you'll be better off.

Thanks. Really, thanks. Even with it chained to itself its still in range of the jewels. I just clip it to the throttle lever.

sounds stupid but where do you clip the chain to? I have a chain on mine and could never figure out a good way to clip it up out of the way. (that is what its for right? To clip up the jungle jim so you can walk?) Never used my jungle jim much but I'm starting to use it more now. Thanks
