October 11, 2010I bought my truck in May of 2002 and have had it for just over 8 years now. IT had around 35K miles on it when I bought but was basically brand new in condition. I this week just rolled the miles over to 200,000 (roughly) the odometer hasn`t really read acurate for a few years with the lift and tires but it is pretty close. Anyhow I still love the truck and even though it has some rust spots and work to do it still runs great and is very reliable.
Hopefully I can make this work but here is a brief photo history of the truck!
at the dealership with my old truck
Truck Cap added and towing home a toy in 2003
Dec 2003 some new tires
Feb 2004 - someone broke into the truck and placed a molotov cocktail inside the truck but thankfully shut the door which in the end smothered the flames but not without damaging the interior to the tune of almost $10K in damages
By April the truck was back up and running and all clean again
April 2006 it was time for some new tires and a new look
Sept 2006 Had an accident and thought the truck was gone but had some reconstructive surgery and the truck was back "in black"
April 2007 New truck box
June 2007 added some height
In 2008 the truck got some new tires again to go with the added height and some new wheels
2008 The truck even got to do some parade duty
2010 the truck now has some extra fender clearance a brand new rear axle, new gears, new driveshaft and a another new look
200k on the ticker and looking forward to another 200K more
