New to me 11 Longhorn

Recommended Posts

I've been away for a long time but finally got back online.  My 04 burnt up when my shop burned so I was looking for another 6spd.  Couldn't find what I wanted and finally weakened and drove a friend's 15 auto.  The very next day I found this and bought it.  After driving it for a year I'll probably never buy another 6spd. Since I don't feed the kids cows with this truck.  

 

Since then I've added a few things and lost a few.  Added a toolbox, headache rack, drip rails on windows, rhino lined the lower quarter panels (I live on a gravel road) and BW gooseneck hitch.  I should have had the bumpers done when they lined the sides.  I didn't realize the paint on them was so cheezy.  This time I kept a muffler as 12 years of straight piped truck was enough :)  I love the creature comforts but miss the fun of the 04.  I'm not a fan of the mileage but it is what it is.

Congratulations! And welcome back.  Nice explanations on what and why. Sometimes it's good to lose things. 

 

What kind of fuel mileage are you getting?

After things fell off I average 13-14 back & forth to The Dalles  (It's uphill both ways :)  )  The best I've gotten on I-84 is 19.  The lie-o-meter says 21.  I've tried to load pictures but cannot seem to make them small enough.  

 

The main thing I miss after the fire are the tools from my Dad and Grandpa.  The rest is replaceable.  Nobody was hurt and all the neighbors showed up with thier pumpers so it didn't leave the property.  So no wheat was lost.
