    Then took it to my buddy's work to power wash all the gray primer off. Looks a little better.

    I have a friend that offered to buy it. May sell it, I don't know yet. If I do I will get something else.

    My plans if I keep it:
    Spool
    Welded front
    4" front springs
    Shackle flip
    Tires
    Single stage desert tan
    Have fun

    Always liked the brown/tan two tone. Nice score on the hydro 465 that happens to be surrounded by a running driving truck

    It is a fictitious number representing a LOT. So, looks a LOT better.

    No I get that. Let me rephrase. Why do people say it on this forum? Never heard it anywhere else.

    I guess it's a little more widespread than you think. I'm on a guitar forum, and have heard it before.

    It's a thing. lol.
