SHIT 3 sets you go through tires like you go through soiled underwear

Remember when the oil needs changed I sell my truck. Those 3 sets where for 3 different vehicles. ☺
Yeah I know that's my point 3 sets in under 2 years

Well since Photofuckit screwed us all out of the pleasure of viewing the precious and his modifications. I have prepared this simple guide for you:

Well, it's been 10 years since the Precious and I joined forces. ON 11/11/17, she suffered a catastrophic blow to the front left fender flare- causing a roll down the body, a bend of the fender and denting to the driver / rear suicide door. The driver door no longer opens cleanly but hooks the fender.

Here you can plainly see the damage to be fixed!


Here's the spot near coke ovens that did the deed:
(Picture a bunch of vehicles jeeps and an FJ placing their Left tire on the wall, their right tire on the high unwashed out part and straddling this 36" deep channel. Everyone else made it unscathed, well, of course....The great Jimbolio....)


Finally, the insurance came through to repair the damage, but since it's paint chip here and little dent there, it's time for a full makeover.

Mod_Muscle (who's a saint to do that in 104°)░ came over yesterday and we took all of here heavy offroading clothes off (No easy task considering 10 years of corrosion and caked mud!) But here she is, ready for ye olde body/paint shoppe.







Which Color will it be? Hmmmm...

Quicksand isn't on your color chart but I'm sure they can find it.

Are you gonna scratch the new paint?

WOW, came across a picture on Shutterfly from 10 years ago. The Precious was exactly 1 month old. And completely bone stock.
