XD Series Addicts

After Elyse got the leveling kit on her truck she was ready for new rims and bigger tires. She searched the internet and found the rims she wanted, matte black XD Addicts, only to find out that they were on national back-order. She couldn’t find anything else that she liked as much so decided to wait until they were available. She also decided that she wanted Trail Grapplers for an aggressive look.

They finally got here! We ordered them mounted and balanced so all that we’d have to do is bolt them to the truck. Elyse didn’t waste any time getting to work. She grabbed the jack and the impact wrench and started pulling the old wheels off.

After we got the back wheels on you could already tell it was going to completely change the look of the truck. Time for the front wheels…

Here are the before and after pictures. Elyse loves her new rims and tires. She said it was well worth the wait and she couldn’t be any happier!

Kansas City T-Bones

For my work’s summer party this year we all went to a Kansas City T-Bones baseball game. We all ate BBQ before the game and sat in a block of seats together. It was a fun time, although much better after the sun went down since it was a hot day.

beatin’ the heat

Since the summer has been so hot we’ve been riding our motorcycles later in the evenings. We finally got some relief in the heat and decided to get some friends together and go for a ride. We decided to go on the ‘DeSoto Loop’ which has a nice variety of roads.

The TVN Dominator

I was driving home after running some errands the other day and out of the corner of my eye I saw The Dominator! It’s one of the vehicles from Storm Chasers on The Discovery Channel. It’s owned by tornadovideos.net and is used to go inside of tornadoes. I stopped and checked it out; it was neat to see it in real life instead of just on the TV.

I hope there were not any storms near you!

a dog’s life

Chita loves hanging out with her Uncle Cole. Usually they play very rambunctiously and Chita sounds pretty vicious; looks like by the time this picture was taken he had worn her out!

Earlier that day Chita had her friend Kona over to play. They chased each other all around the yard and Kona got freaked out when Chita barked at her! Kona is just a puppy but is already bigger than Chita.

After Kona left, Chita was exhausted.
