Say Hello To Jules

DSC_7750_1_2_tonemapped

I said good-bye to Senior and Junior last week and this is their replacement.  I got a bunch of stuff I wanted, didn’t really lose any features, dropped my payment and cut my interest rate in half.

Why am I naming the new truck Jules, here’s a couple million words.

I will say that 6.7L Diesel is a serious kick in the teeth.  I am a little sad to let my manual transmission go, but there are upshots to an automatic and this one has a full manual mode.  Now to fix the boat for this summer.

I will be getting at least one of these wallets to put my insurance and registration info in.  I will probably get one for myself as well.

Now if you don’t get the tie between the wallet and the name Jules, let me enlighten you.

The running winner was Marci, short for Marcellus Wallace until the wife mentioned Jules.  I also thought about using the code names from Reservoir Dogs.

Deep down I really wanted to do Jayne but another friend of mine’s got that one for her truck.
