If you have been following Project HOSS: The Ultimate Work Truck, you know that we are in serious need of a bed. I was down at the local wrecking yard to inquire about them taking the old bed once a new flatbed was purchased. The guy mentioned they had some used flatbeds laying around. I went out to take a look.

Here at Homestead Basics we have a one year supply of food, six months of water, and a decent financial reserve. Today I was down at NAPA purchasing everything to do an oil change on our Project HOSS. I cant believe I never thought of this, but I don’t have many supplies for vehicle maintenance. Remember that your food storage and other reserves are not just for if the world goes down in flames, but what if your job goes south? What if you get injured enough, you cant work full time? NAPA was running a sale on filters, so I purchased a case. I also purchased eight cases of oil. That is enough to change the oil every two months for each of my vehicles (My wife’s suburban or HOSS).

I previously mentioned that we were taking on a new project. With Spring around the corner and recent move under our belts, we were in need for a new truck to handle all our needs. You can find our requirements here. So I have been on the lookout. One thing I really wanted to do was keep our vehicles near the same. My wife really loves her Suburban, so the chances of her changing were slim. So I decided to find a truck that was similar. I went searching on Craigslist and found exactly what I was looking for!
