Oh man... for the first 30 months I had the truck hardly a day went by that I didn't do something to the truck. It was an obsession. Regardless of weather, I worked my butt off to correct what had been done wrong, and to take care of the things that had been neglected, as well as making things the way I wanted them to be. I have no idea how many hours total I've put in, but just as an example/guestimation, I'd say I probably spent around a hundred hours just on the dash remodel/overlay/gauge restoration alone.

I drive it at least a few times a week on errands or to go to shooting competitions, and I put between 3k-5k miles a year on the odometer.

Beautiful work!

How's it drive, is it squirrelly at all at speed?
Thanks,
It steers and tracks wonderfully, but even with power steering, damper, and geometry improvements, at speed there is still some bump-steer encountered over bridge seams and the like. I believe that's just the nature of trying to tame the mass of 4' tires.
