No longer owned


This is my truck that I bought for the winter. Bought it at 187,000 miles and still running strong. So far I've done some maintenance work to it, all new wheel bearings, tie rod ends, brakes all around and plugs, cap and rotor. Yeah, I'm a chick who does all the work on her own cars, by myself. :)
