    Default I went fishing today...

    I will first start this by saying I didn't catch squat.

    So after putting my headache rack and my tool box back on (painted the rack), I decided to head on down to my favorite lake and try kayak fishing. When I got there, the boat launch was a total mess, as somebody had gotten stuck there a few days ago, and it was just a rutted, muddy mess. Needless to say, I had to pack the kayak down from the parking area. With my kayak on my shoulder, and my other free hand holding my fishing pole, I started through the mess, and ended up slipping and going down. Needless to say, what came afterwards was what looked to be a serious case of what my buddy affectionately called "Mud Butt":



    And, since I only stayed for a short while after that, I decided to grab some pics of the truck before I came home to change and work on my garage. Here they are for ya:






    And here is a picture of just the headache rack. Two coats of Rust-Oleum's truck bed coating, FYI:

    So I'm loving that spot where you intended on fishing! Nice truck pics btw!

    Picture tip: From what I can tell you're trying to go for the 4x4 look with your truck (looks great!) but try to get a lower stance when taking pics to put emphasis on the height of the truck. Beautiful truck regardless though!

    Nice spot for fishing. The truck is looking good too. Mud butt is better than mud face.

    Believe it or not, but I was on one knee in the first picture of the truck, and the second picture I backed up a ways on a hill. It's the way the truck is parked.

    And it is a Four wheel drive, lol. No need to go with the look when you got it ;)

    I think it's just the fact that it's probably the best body style GM ever thought of. I just love every body line, curve and corner of these trucks.

    Your truck really does look great in that beautiful background...I hope you were able to keep that mud off your seats.

    Yeah, I ended up using a rain jacket I had in my tool box and sat on it, plus I have washable seat covers. I literally just vacuumed out the truck right before I went fishing too, lol.

    I think the color matched grille and mirrors really make the truck look clean. The headache rack looks good as well

    It looks like you got the worst of it....I can't wait to get out in some woods/mountains. We just received several more inches of snow in the mountains here, so it appears I'll have a few more weeks to wait before the good trails open up.

    btw...one of the things that I notice and really like about your truck is the front bowtie and how it matches with the other black and really stands out from the chrome and white. I agree with Nathan, and that there's something about your truck that makes it look different in a great way.
