Kurt replied to Larry Boettcher's discussion Multi Colored Beard in the group Men with Beards
"Yes. You can bleach your stash with some over the counter bleaches that you can find at walgreens, CVS, or similar. It's smelly and takes some patience but it can be done."

Hybrid Trucks

Will they ever make hybrid truck? It doesn't seem plausible to have that much power in a hybrid. Is it possible? Would you buy one if they did? See More

A letter to Dad

It's weird, usually on my birthday I think of my mom. I used to call her every year on my birthday no matter what, and thank her for all the trouble she went thru to give birth to me. The way I almost died, twice, on the day I was born really makes me appreciate every year I live and makes me believe deeper in God and appreciate what God did to get me this far! But somehow this year is different. I'm thinking of my Dad, not really believing that he's dead. Somehow I always thought there would…See More

Hey Kurt,

I don't get on here often and I don't remember if I replied to your question. I don't know of any groups.

I've had a few trucks in the last year: #1 I wrecked my 1988 F150 4x4 shortbox. It had a cam, headers, exhaust on a 5.0 with a C6. #2 was a 1988 F250 ext. cab 8' bed. I lifted it and put tires on it but sold it. #3 1982 F250 had a 460 with 500HP. It was set up for racing. That beast would go! I broke enough drive shafts and other parts so sold it. #4 I got a 1974 F250 factory highboy. It had a 390 with headers and cam and C6 with shifter kit. It was riding on 36" super swampers. Sold it because it was a gas hog. #5 I have now. Its a 1990 F150. I have a 6" lift on it and 35"s. It had a inline 6 under the hood which I love! It has loads of torque and gets 16mpg in town/20 mpg on the highway. It also has a standard tranny. Planning on doing some engine work on it soon and well as a little body.

The jeep has been put on the back burner till I get more time, I am currently working 60-70 hours a week over the road. I hope to get time to work on my jeep, and maybe even get some fishing time in soon.

Yeah, I loved that truck. The new truck has what I was looking for: more passenger room. The new truck rides a lot smoother, handles the hills better, and tows like a dream, but I sure miss Betty Blue.

Thanks, Kurt. My truck was definitely the best money I ever spent. Happy trails in yours as well, my friend.

Hey, I appreciate the comment. I became a truck owner by accident and a truck lover by fate. Long story short, my 6' 8" brother decided to buy a Sonoma GT (I know it's a small truck, but everybody can cut me a break I'm in college.) He was too tall to comfortably drive it and thus sold it to me at a really good price.

Hi Kurt thanks for the comment you posted on my page. I unfortunately do not own a truck, but I am planning on buying one next year. I will gladly post photos when I can.
