I'm certain I read somewhere that they stopped sourcing them from Alcoa sometime in '12. I was going to powder coat my stockers and custom paint the center caps, but the powder coat alone was way too much to consider doing it just for the looks, so I just went with the cheap plasti-dip.

I just found a picture of my truck before I bought it and it was at the dealership. I'd say it's come a long way. I also think I may have a bit of a modding problem. I hope I'm done, but I'm not promising anything!

I'm not sure why the damn picture is so small...

After searching for a while I ended up having a custom headache rack built by my favorite accessory shop. I guess you could call it a Blue Ribbon Auto Body Brand.

Well since today is the first day of summer, I figured it was fitting to post this since we put the family boat in the water over the weekend.

We put both my dad's boat and mine away a couple of weeks ago. Putting the boats away is always the official sign that summer is over. Now I have some scouting to do before hunting season starts on October 22nd. I'd post pictures, but for some reason I can't anymore.

On November 5th my truck turned 5 years old. In the last year I put on 7,197 miles. Total miles in 5 years was 39,384. At this point I'm averaging less than 8,000 miles a year. I'm starting to think I need to drive this thing more.

Geeze, under 40,000? Mine is 4 3/4ish years old and I have just over 60k. Hit 60k miles last week. It's been 20,000 miles on the Toyo RT's.
And it's never a bad idea to drive it more@

After 4 years I average just over 7000 miles per year on my rubicon, which I traded in for the PW this summer. Now, after 6 months with the PW I already have 7000 miles under it's tires. I guess that proves my theory that the PW would be a more practical vehicle for me/my family. I do miss the old Rubi, but I sure love this new truck!

Do you drive another vehicle for work, or just dont drive much?
