I sold the truck... Sold the camper earlier in the week, so I really didn't need the Beast any longer. I have to say I really loved that truck! It was the finest Truck I ever owned. But the cash helps cushion the blow... Amazing how it held it's value. I bought it when it was a year old, with 9k miles on it. Paid 42K for it. Sold it to Carmax yesterday. 22K on the odometer, check was for 39,400 dollars. I don't think I will need another truck, but if I do it will be a RAM.

Nice! I've sold 3 vehicles to Car max since the lock downs and made money each time. Crazy times!

Not this week, but 2 weeks from now (in case I forget) I'm driving from W. AR to Buckeye, AZ towing a large cargo trailer full of furniture. Taking the southern route (just in case there is a late winter snow thing along I-40) through OK, TX, and NM into AZ, . If I remember, I'll post how the towing thing went.

Installed this ignition bottom and ring cover. Got it off Amazon.

I may upgrade to the red TRX start button, I dunno.

I wouldn't spend the night in Albuquerque. That city had the largest nu!her of car thefts and carjacking in the country a few years ago. My wife and I lived there for ten years before moving 3 years ago due to the crime. There was always some hapless travellers having their trailers and cars broken into at hotel parking lots.

It will be Alamogordo, not Albuquerque. Not going to be anywhere near the I-40.

Got her all cleaned up last weekend during a stretch of nice weather. Finally got a chance to take it out and get some air today!

Applied ceramic coating refresher...hard to believe it's been almost a year already since I had it done.

It held up nicely through the first year of weather in the Northeast and makes washing it so much easier.

Took advantage of the nice day before more cold to wash it. And post the Navy Jack.

Installed a OPT7 tailgate light bar
What do you think of the lightbar so far? Looking at one for my truck. Was thinking the PUTCO Freedom Blade. But have a had time swallowing $500 plus for this item.

Threw in a Bullet Point dash phone holder and hooked my 8 watt handheld to the already ran coaxial cable and external antenna.

I tried real hard and searched for something similar but a bit different than the Bullet Point.

Im going to modify it a bit. I'll start a thread on it.

Even an 8 watt (most likely atound 6 out the antrnna) hit the repeater on the mountain and bounced back a solid set of communications.

Running a 462-467Mhz 6.2 inch GMRS antenna. Can slap the HAM antenna on at any time.
