    Default New custom Z71 decal and "added" accessory....

    A couple folks have wanted to see the progress on the truck since getting it in November. Wheels and tires helped a lot, and the old decals were faded (plus, I didn't think the color of the factory decals complimented the truck color. So, new decals in place...

    I did want the blue on the decals to be darker, but this is how they came out, and I like them, so they are on. What do you folks think??? Lots more to come, for sure.

    Nah, I stay away from the strip unless I'm in poker tournament, and still would not be there at 4:00 a.m.. However, I do believe in being prepared for any situation...

    They have a suspect they like for it, and he sure seems to fit the crime.

    dont shoot yourself in the foot. Last year I lost a friend who accidentally shot himself in the leg while removing a 357 out of a holster, he was a 45 year gun veteran so he was very familiar with guns.

    Forgot to ask you you like your Enkei's. I'm looking at a set, as the ones I put on were a quick substitute for the garbage that was on the truck. I like the look of the polished Enkei's similar to yours, in a 17". They are not real agressive, or modular, but are almost vintage looking. Have yours held up well????

    thanks,
    Jim

    The interior accessory is a bit more conspicuous than I, myself, would care for -- especially in states where it MUST be out of sight when inside the vehicle (which is a good number of them) ... in either transport mode or loaded and ready to go while concealed by a legit CCW holder. As long as you're happy with it and know the legality of it when it comes to the states through which you travel, it's all good.

    That is a good point, for sure. I asked my CCW instructor, and he referred me to Metro (LVPD). I asked them, and they were a bit vague, but said that, locally, conspicuous would me "in plain sight", requiring no effort to view, and generally felt this would pass the test. So, that was good enough for me. It is, of course, removed when the vehicle is not in use.
