Years ago I hired a string of "bad" drivers, decided I would sell the Freightliner, just drive the Pete myself. Guy came, kept looking at Pete, while really inspecting the FL. Finally he asked what I wanted for Pete. I set what I thought was a super high price. He inspected the Pete, he bought both. I have often wondered how much more I could of got for the Freightliner.
So if you decide to set a price, be sure it is high enough.

My LF turn signal didn't work so I replaced the socket and now they all work. [emoticon]


[image]

I also replaced the RR backup socket so now all the lights function normally.

I also bought a can of Rust-eze Medicated Bumper Ointment and cleaned up my back bumper. [emoticon]

[image]

After I got the bumper cleaned up I painted it.

And added my new license plate frame. [emoticon]

Installed a toolbox and added some off-road accessories. [emoticon]

A bucket will hold the chain, make it easy to get out of truck without hammering on the body. A cheap tool bag works just as well, and takes up less space.

Thanks for the ideas. Looks like a tool bag goes on the list today.

Decades of tossing in and dragging out of beat up work trucks, never gave it a thought. First time I needed to unload over nice paint I saw a issue.
Bags can sometimes be pretty cheap, take time to shop. I carried about 20 feet of 3/8 in just a cloth bag I picked up to reduce the number of urban tumbleweeds (Ever looked at a bib bag in the wind?) I put in the world. Did not use chain much, but bag lasted a few years, until I found better

I keep the larger chain in this canvas bag but I like the ide of small tool bags better so I'll be getting two.

Thanks again.

I painted the rear bumper with Rustoleum Hammered Gray, it didn't really look right.


[image]

So I bought a can of Rustoleum Hammered Silver. The left side is gray and the right side is silver.


[image]

I'm liking the silver better.
