Haven’t really touched the truck and it is crazy dirty. I’m going to take a day off to get the interior detailed and give the outside a quick clean up. We are in the middle of a big melt, so not much point in doing much with the exterior.

Can we assume you’re feeling much better then? 

We have that same big melt happening this past week and next week looks crazy warm.  Should take care of the rest of our snow minus the plowed piles everywhere.

Still have to take it pretty easy and go slow, but think I can do some cleaning at the very least.

Finally gave the truck a little attention for it’s 6 Birthday. Cleaned up most of the interior, need to tackle the glass after the kids go to bed.

Maybe the pedals too.  What a disgrace!  Haha. 

Seriously though, truck is clean!  Nice work!

That dead pedal is a nightmare to clean and gets dirty right away, lol. I just didn’t have the willpower to tackle it.

Looks like somebody's feeling at least a bit better! The truck looks awesome!

Swapped out the thermostat for a slightly cooler one, drained the coolant to put in Fords new stuff and installed upgraded hot-side turbo pipes.

Just got an email from B&H.  I haven’t followed drones too much lately but they just released the Mavic Air 2S.  I like the sounds of this one.  A more portable, cheaper version of the Mavic Pro 2.  Has a 1” sensor and can shoot 5.7k.

I saw that too. Probably what I would jump on of buying today.

Truck went in for its first ever real service (they did oil changes a long time ago) at a Ford dealer.

It needed the brake master cylinder recall done and I also got them to fix the AC. There was a bad pressure valve that had to be replaced. All good now and ready for summer.

Good call.  Summer is coming quick.  We have already had to turn the house AC on once.  Truck AC has been on almost everyday for the last couple weeks.
