FINALLY steam cleaned the under carriage of some/most of the power steering fluid that has dripped down from the leaking steering gear unit that I had removed and sent off to Rock Auto for a fresh rebuild. The oil has been blown back about halfway back from driving at freeway speeds and is also on the transmission housing. I will finish steam cleaning the rest of the truck's belly. As it was only a quick "G job". More steam cleaning to come on Thursday.

These are the lights that I used. Not high dollar but they definitely work for me. Like I said, clean beam cutoff. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

What does the beam pattern look like on a wall at 25 feet?

While driving my D21 to/from work this week. I saw several(5 to be exact) D21's driving on the road with me. It is the MOST D21's I've ever seen within the span of 3 days. They were all in very good condition. I was very happy in those moments.

Nice truck. Wax job time soon.

And LOOK at the size of those parking slots! Holy cow. Everything really IS big in Texas. I like the wheels on that truck. Also looks like you have a 'real' hitch on it, one mounted to the frame. (?)

It's a Reese hitch

with a special ball mount on it.

The regular ball mount was too close to the bumper and I didn't have room to slide a trailer tongue over it.

Here is a picture from behind.

I noticed another D21 parked next to yours. Once you own a certain vehicle, you see 'em everywhere.
