I have the coolest wife and friend!

Recommended Posts

A few years ago I did some major work to my buddy's J10. While I had it at the house my girlfriend (now my wife) fell in love with the truck.

 

Fast forward a few years and we're married and settled down in a permanent home.

 

I continue to help my buddy with all his projects and just being there when he needs a hand. We get to talking about how the truck is looking pitiful sitting in the driveway. All the while we are putting all our time into building his super charged LX Fox body Mustang.

 

He says he's debating parting the J truck because he can get way more money for it than selling it outright. I told him if he did that Steph would never forgive him and she would be heartbroken. He asked if she really wanted it? I told him that she absolutely loves it and has wanted it from the day she saw it.

 

He throws me the keys and says bring me $4000 and she's yours. I couldn't find the words to thank him. I know how much time, blood, sweat, tears and money has went went into that truck. It's well over $15,000.

 

A quick rundown of stats,

L98 IROC 350, 700R4, Dana 300, Dana 44s, 4:10s, Vintage Air, Flaming River column, 4" OME lift, 33" Wild Peak ATs.

 

To say I'm excited for her is and understatement. It is such a cool rig and will fit nicely beside her 48

He is a great guy. We were in the Marine Corps together and have remained close friends ever since. He lives less than 3 miles from me now and we hang out every chance we can get.

There are only "good" friends.  If you have "one",  you are blessed.  As for the Gladiator ... Nice frickin' truck!
