I joined Trailvoy! What a long strange trip it's been lol. What started as doing some research for some speaker size clarification turned into something much bigger. I've made some good friends and met a lot of cool people over these last five years. Although we changed our meeting place, the "community" feel is still the same, which is very cool and hip.

This also marks 5 years of owning my TB. I got it a day or two before joining. Here is the only pic I have of it from around that time. The only mods were a radio/ipod and the shorty antenna.

You know what's BOSS? 5 years later, I'm still doing things to this truck. I think around November I added the EXT braces, and last weekend I installed the dual park tail light boards that I built. Working on the quad turns/quad brakes now. And there's still a lot more I want to do.

So......enough of the rambling lol.....here's to another 5:wootwoot::cool::celebrate::tequila:

sounds like you live by the same mentality I do..... I will stop modding what I have the day I trade it in or sale it, the mod bug hit me with my first truck I had, carried on to everything I owned with an engine and wheels, here i am 15 years later and still spending countless hours and dolla dolla bills on something else for one of the modes of transportation I have. Keep up the good work and NEVER get rid of that mod bug

Same! Though depending on the condition of the rest of the truck I might just bolt the wheels back on and keep going :biggrin:

When I got married, my wife already had 2 girls. Vehicle wise, we had a Nova and a Chevy PU. With a third kid, we dumped the Nova for a 1 yr old Astro Van. My wife got the van with the A/C and I drove the PU. 10 years later, when my step-father passed away, we sold the '78 PU and bought his '92 Sierra. My wife wanted 'her' PU (read - newer vehicle) back, so I got the Astro as the hand-me-down. Another 10 years later, with 1.5 kids (out of 5) still at home and my wife no longer driving due to MS, the Astro virtually dies pulling into the lot to look at the TrailBlazer. Bought the TB a year old with 14k miles on it. Now, almost 6 years later with 126k miles, the TB is still MINE! In all that time, no one else (besides oil and tire shop guys pulling it in/out of the service bay) has been in the driver seat.

When the wheels fall off, I'll already know which ones will be the replacements.

HUGE :thumbsup: to MAY03LT for 5 years of supporting TB owners.

Congrats Andrew. It's been an adventure to quite a few of us. I'm right around the corner from 4 years with my TB. Bought it with 7 miles on the Dash on 2-29-2008. Go figure Leap Day!!:biggrin:
