Happy Aniversary John and Gretchen!
I hadn’t done any moonlighting for almost a week because of my back.
I did get out there and did some work on my dually bed this morning. Need to get that truck back together since its tagged and insured so I can drive it.
Speaking of moonlighting, I’m going to get my LLC squared away and tax ID first of the year. Time to start making my side gig legit if I’m going to make the plunge.
6/6/2021 will be my ten year mark and time to exit the wonderful world of government service.John JonesKeymasterDecember 24, 2019 at 9:10 amPost count: 7121

MANY MANY THANKS on the 29 years…. Gretchen has made it easy for me…. 😎 😎 😎
I hate it when my shit is all broken… 😎 I had merryXmas to myself last night when I drove my dually again after 6 months or so of being down!!! It needed some love… This kinda truck is sorta high maintenance….. !!!!! I imagine thats why it only has 69 thousand miles on it!!! and it’s a 1999!!!! Most of this year it was broken…. 😎 I bet there were many other years the same way!!! 😎 😎
So I replaced upper A-arm bushings that were shot!!! Also, 2 of the 4 were random bushings…. weird… and 2 matched…Both rears were super duper fucked…. I got it fixed up… Now it has the correct length sleeves and bushings in all four spots! Also, New front shocks. New front brakes, new front tires.. and reworked front bumper, reworked front fenders, new lights up front, refinished hood, lights out back, bumper replaced with rolled pan. which led to me having to fab up the very most rear of the bed where a roll pan must have been cut off from!!! then I had to do a SHIT LOAD of work to the rear fenders because Chris hates me… 😎 Also replaced that stupid ass tail gate!! whole thing!!!! 😎
I know… I still gotta do the center part… But the center part isn’t all fucked up!!! It’s nearly scuff and shoot material… but there are a few spots that need attention.
Now the truck looks even shorter!!! 😎 and wider….John JonesKeymasterDecember 25, 2019 at 9:55 amPost count: 7121John JonesKeymasterDecember 25, 2019 at 2:56 pmPost count: 7121
Had a chance to go drive my truck.. Drives better than ever! Doesn’t pull like it used to. Smoother, and you can drive it a lot lower.. 😎 and if you air it up in the front.. I bet I can do a U turn!!! 😎 OK enough about my truck… Whats next?? Sand rail? NO… Pamper love…. BBB is in 2 plus weeks!!! So it’s time to either make some excuse, or start getting ready… Cause EVERYONE wants to go…. 😎 😎
MY BACK…. Since I have been sitting in this chair…. I have been feeling better and better each day… Yesterday I pushed it, walked around a little too much… and muscled around them dually wheels myself and am sore today!!!! But nothing not even close to how I felt a week ago… The Steroids must have chilled out the spine… and not agitating it probably helps also.. 😎 I still have nearly zero control of my right foot though.. I can walk on it.. I kinda flop it around…. 😎 😎C.HamburgParticipantDecember 26, 2019 at 6:20 amPost count: 192
dually looks great John. I’m gonna work on mine today. Haven’t drove mine down the road in about two years. Runs like shit.FranzKeymasterDecember 26, 2019 at 7:44 amPost count: 3807

THANKS!!! I AM SOOOO SATISFIED!!! I am a VW guy through and through.. but I love me some slammed dually’s!!!! And the amount of work that has gone into this truck is unreal… It would be sooo much harder to replace than my pamper or my kombi!!!! I think a project of this size, often, takes more than one mans wallet can endure… 😎 😎
I need to find your old thread I don’t recall, but I didn’t think you were running dually’s out back?John JonesKeymasterDecember 26, 2019 at 9:09 amPost count: 7121
everyday I sit in this chair… I feel better and better… 😎RSP3ParticipantDecember 26, 2019 at 9:26 amPost count: 148
Stay in that chair! Great to hear your feeling better.C.HamburgParticipantDecember 26, 2019 at 9:12 pmPost count: 192
The dually I should have never got rid of had 19” Alcoas but I was running factory 16” inners. My new truck 24’s all six.
