    A quick post to reminisce about my past trucks. 05 Silverado was sold when i picked up my 08 Sierra. Recently traded in the 08 Sierra on a Jeep Liberty... just wanted to eliminate the payment; daycare is going to hurt next year with 2 kids.

    Thanks!

    And yup.... got the Matrix and front skid from ER Nurse. He's shipping them out tomorrow morning.

    Just need to fab up a way to mount my Rallye4000 lights on there now. I have a few ideas but really need to see the Matrix in person to figure out the spacing/connections. The lights have a 9" outer diameter so they may not fit on the standard mounts on either side of the hoop.

    Woot woot!

    Check out what the magical UPS man dropped off while i was in the garage rebuilding my power washers carb...



    They're heavier than i thought they would be... kind of chuckled a little bit at the fact that i was "gently" placing them on the ground so i wouldn't "damage" them (or something).
