About “Blue flame”

My daily driver and Monte Hauler. I love my truck. I've added pin stripes, bug deflector, window vent shades, splash guards, K&N air filter, three red marker lights below tailgate, additional clear back up/cargo lights under rear bumper, remote starter, electric tailgate lock (wired into door locks) tonnau cover, in bed tool box, tinted front windows, painted all black plastic trim with Krylon Fusion - black paint, painted mirror covers body color, added GM Factory tailgate spoiler, high beam headlight conversion kit (low and high on at same time) and replaced all front bulbs with Sylvania Silverstar lights.

About “Mistress”

We bought this truck following the demise of my original truck, the Red Rocket. It is my daily driver, and gets used as my work truck. Just the way a real truck should be. Except that it needs a standard transmission.

Mods for “Mistress”

Previous owner "installed" a can of white semi-gloss housepaint under the hood.
Besides removing most of the house paint, I've installed Lund Ventshades on the front doors(I hate how the extended cab shades look), applied Silver Pinstriping and couple of Dale Earnhardt decals, and aided in removing tire tread from the Uniroyal Tiger Paws that were on it when we bought it.
