    Rise & Shine, Ruby Lee!

Ruby Lee is my 1993 Toyota 4×4 that had only 60k miles on her the day I brought her home in 1997. Since then, she has proven to be one of the things that I can always count on in my life and has had many, many miles put on her.

So, in order to repay her for all of her hard work and companionship over the years, I decided that it was time to finally spend a little money on fixing her up a bit.

In short, she’s been dinged up a bit over the years from living in the city and has been in need of a little body work. She’s been grazed a few times by garbage trucks on the side streets of Queen Anne and has even been stolen once. This has left her in a bit of rough shape.

Therefore, my neighbor Brad and I went off to (name of place) to get her a new front left fender to start cleaning her up a bit. It’s amazing what a new fender and some polish will do for a girl’s spirit!

Next, I decided that she needed a bit of a lift and some new bigger tires. So, Brad gave her a bit of a lift and Discount Tire put some BFGoodrich All-Terrain 33/1250-15 tires on her. Wow! What a difference! I feel like I’m on top of the world!

All in all Ruby Lee has been a significant part of my life and a great truck. So, here’s to beginning to fix her up a bit… I can’t wait to get some more of the body work done on her!
