Re: Hello!

Hope you’ve all had a wonderful day, and Santa has brought you all you wished for! My truck will be seeing some love over the holidays that’s for sure, new struts, strut tops, timing belt and water pump, and various gaskets, seals and bushings. Also a new Johnny joint for the heim joint will be here...
