  1. Oh one more thing about black trucks. Nobody but us owners see the inevitable eventual imperfections. The color is that good that your friends and family will just see the shine.
  2. If you have a means of cleaning it regularly. And by that I mean at least weekly, and don’t rely on plans to wash it yourself. It is a process and a half that matters most on this color. You won’t have time for it. What I would ideally do would be a weekly handwash at a place that does high end cars. What I do in practice, because I live in the sticks, is a montly limitless machine wash card, using it 20 plus times a month, at the place between my house and the office. I wax with collinite 4 times a year. I factor in a paint correction once every two years. I LOVE my black truck. Imo, it’s worth the effort.
  3. 295/50/20 General Grabber UHPs on cheapish 20x9 Chinese rims that were just the look I was going for.
  4. I'll add one thing - So you know how you're flooded with gifts of baby clothes right now? Take everything that's not fastened with either velcro, or a zipper, and SET IT ASIDE. At 3AM, speed is your friend, and buttons are the devil.
  5. Last pic. Only thing I think I want to do (and I hate that I want to do anything because it's definitely not lacking anything for what I wanted) in the future, is a regear. I was wanting that anyway. Now it just seems even more right. She especially likes to dance at the top end. If I lived in Texas or something, the 3.42 gearing and going 140 would be awesome. But in NH, I'll die, so I'd rather move that power curve to the left some. Maybe 5.13s.
  6. Thanks Marv! Real fun...
  7. Oh yeah, 4wd gets used only when the plow doesn't come... haha. No worries about the clearance.
  8. So I went to Granite State Dyno about a Whipple supercharger. James over there asked me a bunch of good questions, and said he had this idea. In a nutshell, it's a rear (mid?) mounted borg warner turbo... beautifully piped to a front mounted intercooler. Great great work by these guys. That trick little catch can is one of my favorite parts...haha. Down to brass tax... she makes 451whp/494wtq. Sounds incredible. Saved me a bunch of money vs the Whipple. Keeps my engine bay open so getting in there to work stays easy. Now that it's in and the car is tuned for it, I'd even say it's driveway serviceable (to a novice like me) more the most part, which is great.
  9. Well, things have been happening. First off, Tire Rack didn't have the wheels I ordered, and I never got around to getting a new set, as I got distracted by this other thing. So... the other thing -
  10. I’m passing with my time with Natty Daddy bender because she’s still not ready. It’s not cooperating at the top of the gears.... likely a spark gap issue. I think about how annoyed my wife has been... but she’s a SAHM, and not pregnant... Man, good luck and WATCH OUt! Hahaha
  11. Oh yea, and waiting by the phone today like a chick waiting for a second date. It’s Dyno Day in Hudson!
