For weekend trips we like to take this: 1995 Dolphin FI 460 with Banks Power Pak & Trans Commander



Day trips this works pretty good: 1987 3/4 small lift with 33's

Awesome after I put the Bank's Power Pak system on it. Before that not worth a shit!! Banks system added 86HP, the coach came from the factory rated @ 230HP.

Thanks. I'm hoping by spring to get a Silver Bullet to replace the hx35, as I don't know how much longer it's gonna hold 40+ psi. Besides that, my only other plans for now are billet input, output, and intermediate shafts, ported valve bodies, and a shift kit. Oh, and a set of tires that hook up. But yeah, I'm planning on keeping this one for awhile.

So far, I love it. Huge improvement over the old trucks, the interior is more like a luxury car than a pickup and the ride is SO much better than the two that I traded in...one being lifted, and the other being lowered really killed the ride of them.

It has a built in brake controller, and 320hp...so it should tow just as good or better than the old F-250 did. So far it is basically stock other than a magnaflow catback exhaust, but I have only had it for 3 weeks. Soon to come is a 2" leveling kit, programmer, 33" Toyo MT's with some new wheels, window tint and a bedrug with a tonneau cover. Some time down the road I want to get a supercharger, but nobody other than procharger has a kit on the market for the 09-10 trucks, so I'm going to wait for a twin screw or roots blower to hit the market.
Nice truck!

Not as big as your old ride, but about time you came to your senses!

Default here is mine

Tow rig # 1
2000 GMC C3500 1 ton pickup. The last of the factory Vortec 350s. auto trans, factory trans and oil coolers, all factory heavy duty stuff. Purchased new in March of 2000
Current mileage 39,450
Every time I pull this out of storage it feels like a new truck to me.

Trailer: 20 long 72 between fenders, just refurbished, new oak decking and updated with led lights. The trailer is HEAVY but I can still add about 8,000 lbs without overloading it.







Tow rig #2
My jeep and my new bantam T3C
I desperately need to install my 4:88 gears in my jeep now.
