Happy to hear that you have your truck on the road.

Installing missing door seals and plugging holes. Discovered that the positive battery cable wasn't properly secured to the post. No matter. Battery needs to come out so I can add soundproofing.

Hubby (Christocat) taught me how to replace the brake pads today! Who says you can't rock a red lip while scrubbing off dirt and rust with a wire brush?!?!

Full disclosure...I need to work out because I couldn't get the dang tire off by myself. :/

You don't need to work out. What you need to do is position the lug wrench so the end is close to the ground. Next, squat down, hold the lug wrench end with both hands, keep your arms straight, then stand up while keeping your arms and back straight. Easy.
