What the hell man.  That's a lot of bugs.  Haha.  I spend a lot of time on the turnpike and highways and have yet to have a truck look like that.  You have some interesting bugs up there.

That’s the prairies for ya. 20+ hours of driving means lots of bugs.

Last 300miles of the trip back was a snowstorm, really slowed me down. The Nitto's did way better than I would have thought, but I also had lot's of weight in the truck.

I hope to sneak away a bit this weekend to get some stuff on the truck done
- Rear Door Kicker Speakers
- Added Sound deadening to the front doors and put some on the rear doors
- New Tail Gate Ford badge (professionally painted)
- Rigid SAE Fog lights (I need to decide between these and the Radiance Pods)
- Whatever doesn't go in for fogs, will be installed as reverse lights in the rear bumper
- Interior clean-up, as I only had time to do a quick vacuum


Future plan is to get the Sync 3 head unit in. I've been holding off, as I may try to get at least the Amp adapter installed at the same time.

I'd be nervous driving that truck in that situation.  Those are not tires for the snow.  Haha.  All that power to top it off.  That's crazy. 

I'm heading to Maine next weekend.  Better not snow.  I was thinking of crossing over in to New Brunswick one of those days but I didn't want to pay to rush a passport.

I already planned for it and had my tuner create a very mellow tip in tune. It feels closer to stock unless you really lay into it.

Roads were slick, so I ran it in 4x4 and took it pretty easy for most of that day.

Spent most of the day getting the garage organized and playing outside with the family.

I managed to get a couple things done on the truck. Methods back on for Winter, rigid SAE dogs installed up front and custom painted Ford Badge on the back swapped out.
