General Bitching and Moaning about your car/truck thread

it's a man, baby!!!
It continued raining for another couple hours and the highway the picture is from is well traveled with a hilltop just to the right of pic. Sheriff rerouted traffic seven miles or so and two trucks set on highway and reeled it in today I guess. Took all morning and wheels all need cleaned out on the bus.

Adjusting my headlights is really starting to become a pain in the ass, I have to physically remove the lamp housing to get to the adjusters, also Ive basically given up on the high beams, im going to try moving the bulbs closer to the reflectors to see if that helps I’m just convinced that they just suck
I didn't think you could adjust headlights on cars now a days...
 
Guessing they're just for looks

Unless you have trouble getting into a high vehicle
I don't see any need for them
Just somewhere for carjacker or cop to hang on to :cool:

I have the same with a Tacoma that has a slight lift on it, old people need it. On the other hand I pretty much only use them to wash the roof of the truck. Beats dragging out a little step ladder.
 
I have a folding step that I keep in the truck
Needed that for my folks back in the day
Haven't used it in years though
No old people allowed in my truck anymore
 
Bella wouldn't like it here
I'd probably step on her a lot
Inadvertently , of course

Jackem high,
Old people can't jump.

They smell funny too.
 
The first thing I did when my ex wife moved out was ripped the running boards off my truck because I hated them
I'd always worry about bashing them on a rock or something... cuz I actually take mine off road (not hard core) but I'll drive down a logging trail or ford a small river... shit like that.

I do want to do a levelling kit on my truck.. like 2" or so... nothing silly.

I got a 05 civic, just found out I gotta pull the inner fender to put a turn signal bulb in.
I have to do that to change fog light bulbs on my Toyota, but since they are LEDs I doubt that'll ever be required.

A year ago last February I dropped off a rusty heap of steel that I'd bought on an outing looking for parts for an International pickup in the early '90s.
As it was found.

As I left it with Russ.

Russ didn't flinch when I told him what I had been thinking of doing to it for decades, he just said "ok". The first time he sent me a picture of progress I got something we had not talked about doing.

He called before Labor Day weekend and said I should come up and see the progress. I was hoping to see it rolling at least and instead this is how far along he was.

My reaction was "Holy shit!" when I came through his shop door. We'd talked about taking the rear doors off to make a two door and I'd mentioned I wish it was a pickup we'd dragged out decades ago rather than a sedan. Sure didn't expect him to make it one. Anyhow he sent a pic late last night after I'd gone to bed of colors I hadn't mentioned or considered and today he won't answer the phone and just replies to my texts with smilies.

Idk what he's up to but I do like the colors. Last truck i dropped off for a front axle swap and green pinstripes to match the interior of my white truck came back like this.

I left it with him like this.

But it started like this.

In process it had a shake down run.
