Looks like a fun, and some very pretty landscape.

I am really looking forward to getting my truck out on some trails!

I've had the truck for about 3 years. I've had some problems with it lately. i just got them fixed and had to break it in.

Nice. Looks good. where is that? How did you mount the tire like that? I hate it that my spare takes up the whole bed. Barely enough room for a cooler.

This is Wenatchee WA. up canyon #2. I took the spare tire mount from under the truck. then welded it to some channel the kind you hang pipes on. then i welded the channel to the bed rail and the bed side. the bolt is the one that is on the stock spare tire mount with a piece of chain link fence pipe welded to it. ill post some pics of it.

Thanks for posting up how you mounted your tire. I've been wondering about something like this for a while!

Why do you have 2 cb antennas? It really doesnt help with them being that close together.
