We are making good progress on the new truck. We would like to say a
special thank you to Paul's Service Center for painting our new truck for
us. After we received the truck back it was then taken to Fox Truck Caps
to have the cap and bed slide installed (looks good). We also have the
siren and light bar installed already and the rest of the lights will be
installed on Saturday . Next week the truck will get lettered.
