Thanks.

Well the new MINI Keurig is by far the MOST important thing in the truck.



I still have to find a spot for the toaster oven, I just realized...

Oh- and the Bose SoundDock might have to go in there as well...lol.

Thanks, Steve-

Here's one next to the lil' 03 Spartan, and a pic of the custom mudflaps I made.

The truck really needed new ones, and I had (2) 24in, 1in thick solid rubber gym mats laying around (15lbs each!)...so I figured "why not". Installed with stainless hardware and slapped a big domed Superduty decal on them and voila!

I just finished mounting 3 custom ladder racks that I made for it. Will get pics later today. I also swapped out the lame tail lights with a pair of THESE and two of THESE kick ass back up lights!

Here's one showing the rear ladder rack I made with the 40 footer already making it's home on it.

And I made that 64in rear graphic for it yesterday. The outline is silver metallic, matching the stripes that I installed all around the entire vehicle a few weeks ago...

I would tend to agree!

I got all 3 of them on Amazon last Fall (new). The 6ft was around $64....pretty good price, I guess.

Ain't got one. Guess they don't come with one...??

Fix-a-flat and roadside assistance is your answer, I guess.

Thanks!

Simple: I don't!

I don't keep raw chicken and eggs in there...just water, usually. But I do keep it plugged in at the shop and on most job sites...

Yeah, believe it or not they don't come with one. They use the excuse that you probably wouldn't be the one to change it anyway.

When I bought my Chevy Express Cutaway Van in 2003, after all the final numbers were in, I made them give me a spare or NO SALE!!
