How long have you been working on your truck?
I bought the truck in 2007 and kept it until 2008. I've regretted selling it back since then. When I had the opportunity to buy it back, I jumped on it. I bought it back in February 2012 with plans of leaving it alone. Now everything is being changed.
So, what makes your truck so cool?
