    Figured Id post a few pic's and some the first few things Id like to upgrade, so any suggestions would be great.
    thanks

    first is a dif. set wheeles and tires then some new running boards
    leveling kit, maybe a little bit of lift. only 2 wheel dr but would make it sharp.

    it has a spray in liner and also I have a nice bed cover for it but have it off so I can get the feeders out for deer season lol.

    Nice! Go wild with it! The 2008 model has 4 different modes for its traction and stability control by the way...

    I know exactly what you are talking about. I will be 60 this December. I was raised on a small 72 acre ranch/farm near Eugene , Oregon (actually Drain) I was FFA/4H. Showed Hereford bulls, and Romney Sheep at Douglas County Fair in Roseburg, Oregon years ago. What is your 14 yr old showing? I was a judge at the County fair for 2 years.

    FFA is the bomb. More than just raising a steer, pig, sheep, etc. There is also public speaking, ie: FFA creed contest up to state level. Not to mention the local high school. I was Secretary/treasurer, VP and eventually President of our high school chapter. Still have my FFA jacket in my closet. 4H is not bad either. I had 4 quarter horses in 4H. My freshman year. Only guy. Rest were girls. Caught a lot of flack from my buds. They were stupid. (gee, hanging out and riding horses with girls?) You might want to consider Santa Gertrudis : Brahma mixed with Short horn (or polled) Hereford mix. Long loins, good breeders. Big money maker whether you have one or twenty. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Gertrudis_cattle

    Keep me posted how your daughter is doing with that Brahma heifer and FFA endeavors. I will PM you with my email/ph#. I wish her the best of luck. It's good that she has parents that give her the support. Maybe forward some previous Show pics. My Senior year I actually Judged FFA at the Douglas County Fair (Roseburg, OR) in 1974. (Yea, I'm an old fart now, heh heh)

    Welcome and congrats from Western PA. Good looking truck. Window tint is the first mod I had done. It really changes the look of your truck.
