Thumbs up got stuff done today while the wife was working

I did a coulple mods today.

1) the cigarette light always on mod http://www.dcautocenter.com/images/2...stantpower.doc

2)Installed a 110v power inverter under the driver seat (had it laying around from my last 3 trucks) I think its a "600 watt" I taped the fuse box under the hood. I dont think the inverter I have draws that much currrent. I only really plug a laptop or 60 watt bulb into it.


There are no pins under the spare realy FYI. Its there just incase I need it.









3)Lined the glovebox and other nitches with some rubber mat I "found" at work. I kina rushed cutting it. But its not really visable to me or anyone else. The rubber looked better after some armorall







The rubber was 1/2 wet from me wiping it down



Junk back in



4) Scanguage installed early in the week (thanks PB and 3n1)





Well thats all the mods I can afford to do for now. Due to the dog needing knee surgury
($2300)



Nasty looking huh ? builds character I say

well hes 8 years old. He likes to jump up at squirels into tress and shit. LOL hes a nutjob.

I hope the rubber quiets things down in the trays a bit. The dang seatbelts make enough noise as it is.

I love the guage. It reminds me to keep my foot out of the gas The dog is doing better. Its funny to see him gimp around on 3 legs untill that one heals.

I'm most impressed with the $2300 dog mod. You're a good man for doing that one!

Referring to an illegal alien as an "undocumented worker" is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist."

I just hope he recovers full use of it again. He likes to run flat out still at age 8. Hes got no idea of his age. Thanks

About a year and a half ago, my Jack Russel had that surgery.....and you know how they like to jump!!!....but anyway, she didn't use her bad leg for quite a while, while it was messed up, and whilst healing, but eventually she started using it again, and full bore might I add, like nothing ever happened. Good luck on your dog's recovery!!
