to me the issue is this:
its too far gone to be a reliable street driver but not really built enough to be a hardcore trailrig.
Its a full size truck on 42's....to wheel it hard it needs better front shafts, some sort of hydro for the steering, better knuckles, and on and on and on....with the amount of money that ads up to you might as well start with a stock truck that hasn't been pre beat
09 Dodge 2500 w/ a Cummins, dd/towrig
85 Toyota Pickup, 1tons, coilovers, 40's, ect
