Planted a tree in front yard.  I knew I was in trouble when the landscaper rolled out the tree on a bob cat.  I asked how much it weighed he said 300 lbs.  It was more than that! :beating: :E:  backing it up to the bigger hole i dug it was a gut buster to roll it off the truck.  While backing it up went over an ornimental grass hit a retaining wall stone I didn't see ripped off both left side mud flaps.   :o  But its in the hole.   :laugh:

Washed and waxed the exterior.
Put on a coat of RR.
Detailed the interior.
Installed a dual tip cat-back exhaust (with help from Jmuller62 (many thanks!))

Just a note to others....check under your bed mat every so often!
I pulled mine out when I was washing the AV and found a colony of ants!  :o  (see pic)

sunday i pulled off the factory hitch and replaced it with a Draw Tite 41930, what a HUGE difference! touched up some of the undercoating while i was under it.  looking forward to mounting the 7 pin to the left of the rear tag through the bumper once this hurricane is over.

Yeah the hitches make quite a difference and yes the hurricane is slowing down a bunch of modding.

 :laugh: No, but I downsized houses, so I wasn't sure if the new garage would accommodate the AV. It does - in fact, the 'new' garage is actually a few inches deeper...

I swapped after almost two years of use my "old style" blue leds in my dash cluster for new style SMD leds
These are much brighter and it looks much better.

That is a sweet looking instrument cluster lighting.  It might pass for the current photo contest.  :0:
