Been a member for a while now, but this is my first thread!

I own a 2005 GMC canyon that I got for a college vehicle. Picked it up in Alexandria, MN with 144,xxx miles. Been driving it for almost three years now and it currently rolled over 193,000 this week. Been really happy with it and I will throw in some pics for fun.

31x10.50 the dealership put on (wow, right?)

finally home! I was sicker than a dog and it was a nightmarish drive back to SD

Issues:
Headlights and corner lights rock chipped to hell - aftermarket eBay lights (not happy with lens quality, but whatever)
fuel smell when idling - fuel pressure regulator (FIXED)
CV shaft leaks (fixed, CV seals)
bear claw scratch on hood - fixed (dealership in pierre replaced)
