Vintage Hauler Servicing - sigh

Sadly, the pickup truck needs some servicing. Well, it's only sad because it uses up funds that would be more happily spent on the vintage machinery! But it needs new tires, shocks and brakes, just ordered it all from the Tire Rack. Installation to be scheduled.
I use the truck for runs to the desert with my dirt bike, and to haul the various vintage bikes to events. And for the errands a truck always seems so useful for. And it's a handy loaner vehicle when we have house guests. Its just a little 2003 Nissan Frontier King Cab XE with 2 wheel drive and the small 4 cylinder engine. Actually, its surprisingly fun to drive... somehow slow badly handling vehicles can be strangely fun. But it does spend much of its time parked while I ride/drive the more interesting vehicles!

Yokohama Geolander ATS tires, Bilstein HD shocks, Hawk LTS brake pads.
