You just need to place, then remove a step stool for her to use every time she gets in and out of the truck.

Installed the upper control arms for the 2.5 leveling spacers I installed a week ago. Information I have found they are saying the ball joints are different designed for more travel, 2 hour job. Time will tell I guess.

Rotated tires, set tire pressures to 37psi., torqued lugs to 130ft-lbs. and set spare tire pressure to 40psi. I have big respect for all of you DIY'ers! We would make my Pops, GrandPops, and Great GrandPops all proud God bless their souls. Hahaha!
I agree with you!

Same paint as my 95 2500 but yours is showroom,mine is doing farm work after earning its retirement mobile quarry welding
Love hearing that farm trucks are still occasionally Dodge! I wish to goodness mine was still showroom though, and my "twinsi" 94 longbed. The paint is fading bad on my 95, and it's everything I can do to keep the 'cancer' away. All my girls need new paint all the way around, and my 94 will desperately need new frame powder coating; salty Utah roads are to thank...

Hooked up the Battery Tender. Trying to keep my truck off the salt covered roads as much as possible.

Yes this. We have a "dollar store" step stool that has a rope attached to it that's long enough to loop over the door handle (when the door is open). Wife steps into the truck, then uses the rope to pull the step inside.

Have been using this method, with the same step stool, for 10 years.

That’s the method my mom uses too.

They still use Naugahyde? I thought the Nauga was a Federally protected animal! You'd think by now everything would be synthetic! JK, I actually prefer the roll-up over the hard covers for everyday use.

Not today, but Friday added a new set of Factory Reproductions 20x9 machined/black SRT10 replicas. I'll wait for a little warmer weather to clean them and the truck. Some may think this style wheel is over used, but I like them.
