    Saline Valley Trip, Feb. 13-16

    This trip had it roots started back in Jan. 2013 when a small group of us made a trek to the Saline Valley hot springs. That trip only included a overnight stop on our travels for that trip. As we all were soaking in the tubs, comments were made that we really need to do a trip and spend more...

    Frustrations of a 2nd Gen Ram Interior

    This truck has got to be the most frustrating vehicle I have owned (of 44) for doing interior modifications. Dodge really didn't leave a lot of area to add anything, especially with the dash.
