Got the driveway done yesterday. Oil based sealcoat. 2 coats.
Protects and lasts longer than the water based sealcoats most companies use. Had to park the beast up on the lawn. Wanted to take the Roush out this morning, but that wasn't happening. lol
Please excuse the dirty truck, (she needs a wash), and the wasted lawn. We've been having a really dry summer out here,.......again! Too dry actually.

**Man, that Ground Force stuff is amazing. Look how level that truck sits. I've seen some guys on the Ram forums use a different kit or mix and match or cut coils,.......most times their front end is higher than the rear. I always ask about it and they say, yeah, it is a little higher in the front. LOL

^ Tony - driveway and Ram are looking good. You ever think about going full on concrete on the driveway? Would be less overall maintenance.

Thanks bro.
I have thought about it. I actually talked to a buddy at work about it. It's very expensive. But, probably worth it in the long run.

Haven't updated this bad boy in a while.
No truck payment until the end of April, 2020. Hopefully I can send out another 2 payments by the end of this month. Went a little overboard with the spending on some new toys this month. LOL
I was thinking of getting another ceramic coating professionally done as well, but I may wait till after the winter into late spring/early summer.

What new toys?!?!?

And as far as ceramic coating, Tony - just do it yourself! You're already into detailing, right? Ceramic coating application is almost like applying sealant. Pretty quick and easy

New phone and a new computer tower,........BIG bucks. (Finally running Windows 10 on my pc. ) I needed to upgrade both badly, but was too cheap to purchase. lol
Finally got pissed off and ordered the phone early this month and the pc, I just got on Tuesday. Both are beasts. They both fire up instantly and are super fast with commands.

Thanks bro.
I've used all Apple products when I was working in prepress back in the day. Actually, my iTouch is an Apple product. That's the only Apple product I own.

Sending in another 2 truck payments early on the way into work on Tuesday.
No payment until the end of July, 2020. Getting really, really close to that 10K mark.

Nice! That's a great feeling. I paid my Mustang off early and loved watching that "next payment due date" get further and further out.

Tony, although concrete may initially be more expensive than blacktop? However, after you factor in maintenance/re-coating costs for blacktop. Concrete ends up being the better overall value in the long run. Anyhow, just saying

Very true Rocky.
It doesn't hurt to get a free quote(s) when needed. Thanks!

But around here they TAX long concrete driveways and ignore long blacktop ones. So my every two or three year coating maintenance is cheaper than the added tax on my 220' driveway.

So,.....I called for my actual payoff today. A little under $6,800.
I wrote out the check and have to mail it out early Monday morning on the way into work. Now I just have to pay my savings account back, which I should be able to do with 7 months, so it's a win-win.
I think I'm going to get the truck ceramic coated professionally again sometime this year. I have 2 shops in mind. I think they both use Opi-Coat. I have Cquartz Finest on it, but the nearest Cquartz Finest installer is in another state! I'll pass on that. lol

Congrats that is a great feeling to not have a car payment. We have no car payment and no Mortgage now! Got that paid off 2 months ago, and it feels like a huge burden lifted off my shoulders. Though I'm getting a itch to get a new vehicle. Must resist the temptation.

Thank you. That's awesome man! Congrats to you as well!
