It's that machine that they shave the ice rink at hockey games to make snow cones with!

Okay...Bit of a back story....Leaving Ford Truck Operations for the evening....There is water on the windshield of all the cars but the temps have slightly dropped below freezing. As we are sort of in mass exiting the building, getting in our cars, starting and turning on the wipers, we all Zamboni'd the windshield, so here we are with ice scrappers...trying to get the ice off the windshield. A weird sight but such are ice storms in the upper parts of the country... I am sure other forum members can relate and is one of the reasons wife and I relocated to southern Arizona!

Nuthin' sadder than a truck that looks perfect -- means it didn't get to do what it's meant to do.

After you get a few dings and whatnot, you quit worrying. And then you get to do what you really wanted. Besides, a few battle scars add character :)

2019 Lariat, Stage 3 Icon coilovers and external reservoir rear shocks, Icon tubular upper control arms, 8.5×17" Icon Compression wheels, 285/70R17 Nitto Ridge Grapplers. What these components have done to the ride is unreal. Next up, will be Relations Race Rock Sliders, Retrax MX Pro bed cover and onboard air. I'm loving the new Ranger!

I am always confused by the weather forecasts there that talk about lake effect snow warnings- I thought it was called Lake Michigan 🤔

I can appreciate a clean vehicle, but mine seldom are. I have washed my Ranger 3 times since I got it in December. I washed it last week, then went straight to the beach.. it's sorta clean, but will be a while before I get all the sand out of the bed, figure this weeks rain will take care of most of it.

Bit off topic, but the Icon rims are currently on sale at 25% off.

If they had been that price a few weeks ago, I may have bought Icon Rebounds instead of Fuel Shoks.

Thought I would mention it since you were commenting on the looks of the above truck with Icons.

Back to getting/keeping the trucks dirty :like:

I do pretty regular maintenance washes, but I also just drove 1,000 miles up the east coast in a rain storm. The beads of water formed "lanes" on the hood they pretty much stuck to all day; left a really neat design on the hood when I got on the boat. Nothing more than the fine stuff in the water stuck in 2,500 miles since I washed it last Wednesday.
