Re: need help im having a serious mind F****** experience

i might do somethin like that but money is the issue I DONT HAVE ANY so my theory is to sell the lift wheels and tires and about a dozen other things that are on the truck and take that money and throw it at the motor and tranny hopefully it sounds good in theory but we will see, besides that IMO tall and fast only adds up to one thing upsidedown and i dont want to do that

Personally I like the look of your truck as it sits. Best I can tell from the avatar pic its a really nice truck. Sometimes lower does seem fun though, but even lower it will take quite a bit to beat many of those cummins and duramax's out there.

Does sounds like a good theory, but are you going to have to buy any parts to return it to stock height? Do you still have the stock wheels/tires?

I just challenge them to a mud bog/ mud drag; or race them across a muddy corn stubble field (with 2 foot ruts) for a case of beer. Free beer taste best!
Beer- $0
Beating their ass-
Locking in the hubs to pull their dumb ass out- PRICELESS

Re: need help im having a serious mind Boggling experience

If you don't have the money to mod it then you also don't have the money to FIX it when it breaks.
Leave the damned thing alone untill you can afford to go fast....or sell the lift, mod the motor then watch the truck sit there and rust after it breaks becasue you don't have anything else to sell to fix it.

Spending money I don't have on crap I don't need to impress people I don't know.

Re: need help im having a serious mind Boggling experience

There was a guy around here with the same size truck as mine who use to talk #### before I ever started really modding my truck... I asked him the other night if he wanted to race, he told me he'd race me through the mud....

Same size trucks and tires, one on MTZ's and mine on SSR's. I was like.... Sure...

So he goes, "Not this truck, my other one..." I was like...

Chicken sh!t....
