    Yeah its good to have a reputable online presence so its always something to think of as you grow.

    Thanks for the compliments on the truck, the red is growing on me my last truck was a brighter red. Its a 2003, 7.3, XLT FX4, hard to find in a single cab.

    The rims are stock, 16x7's. I think I am going to keep them stock and get 295/75R16's.

    I have been thinking about painting my wheels black!!!

    Thank you so much for making my decision for me!

    What would you suggest to use?

    I saw a guy on here use the index card trick... I though that was cool...

    Depends how crazy you want to get, when I have painted trailer wheels or the wheels on my mini skid, I just taped off the tire the best I could, and then sprayed. I roughed up the paint with sandpaper first, primed it and panted with rust paint.

    I have seen those cards you put around the wheel to keep paint off the tire, that could work. Check out plasti-dip if you don't know what that is, kind of an easy method to painting and can look cool.

    Got my bushings put back in, took the muffler out of my exhaust and straight piped it. And swapped the bar and chain on my saw.

    Time to take the salter out of the Cummins I guess, first official work day is tomorrow. Have a good size storm clean up tree job to do!

    You must be close to starting JDG?

    Went and picked my new trailer today, trailer number 4. I am very pleased with how its built. They bedlinered the front of it, 12k jack, 5200lb axles, heavy duty split gates with spring assist, adjustable hitch height, LED's, mounted spare, HD tie downs. Its going to be a really good all purpose trailer for mowing, brush and moving equipment.
