I did my work two weeks ago I replaced the drivers side caliper and all break pads. I will be doing some front end work either this weekend or next.

My rig is getting two new rear tires as I type this. It's also hopefully getting a current Virginia state inspection sticker... I've got my fingers crossed that it passes.

Purchased and installed a used Leer fiberglass cap for my 95 extended cab. I don't know why but I just like having a cap on these things. My Wife and Son(16) hate the caps on both trucks. I just don't get it. Do they look that bad? I think my white '96 looks great.

I'd get the cap on teh first one painted to match the top part of the cab. It would look clean and sharp imo, not that it doesn't look sharp as it sets.

I don't like caps simply because they seam to get in the way for me.

Don't care for truck caps myself. . .I dunno, just doesn't look right. Ruins the "Truckish-ness" of it and they really get in the way for me. I like to just toss stuff over the sides and reach in and drag stuff out. . .and it makes em look too much like a soccer mom SUV

Not saying your's are bad, but. . .hope you like picking the kids up from practice

I kid!!, lol

I re-fiberglassed my roll-pan and stripped another truck of its radiator support for mine.
