    Okie dokie, I backed it, err, pushed it out to the end of the driveway so I could clean up where it's been sitting for a while and get all the oil mopped up and the driveway washed down. It was a good photo op:

    Nah because then I would be just like you and we can't have that /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif


    Bedsides will be on for the street so I can be somewhat kinda almost street legal. The truck was done until I started it up and found the power steering box was broken. Sent it back to Matt at WTO today, hopefully have it back by Friday...
