It's for sale if you want it - $3900 -
IT'S MINE NOW! Just gave Jon a deposit on it this weekend!
Also got to take my first trip in it too with Borderline 4X4. We went up to OSTC and hit some state trails too. Good times.

That's one of the places that I always end up spending at least one night per weekend at.
Friends' dad owns that place. Otherwise I'm always camping north a little farther at another friends place.

I'm up every holiday weekend. Do you stay right across the road there? I'm always seeing lifted Jeeps there.

Now I stare out the window at the friggin' snow

stock turbo and single. does have lift pump, 4" MBRP and intake as well.

sorry if there's confusion. some people speak crank and some rear wheels. it's about 490rwhp

it's still a DD so I'm not looking to race it. it's just fun to drive. I have the dual position tune so I can back it off (tow tune is only 80-90hp over stock) for when I tow. keeps the EGTS nice and low for towing, but still adds a little more power.

a good friend of mine owns a '02 C5 vette and I can run dead even with it. if I can get a good launch I might even beat him (we only ran from a roll twice)

ok, that makes sense... I always assume rwhp on those trucks for some reason... I have the same setup but an 04.5 right down to the exhaust I went back to stock for the winter... I might just run a little 80hp tune for towing next year. My 500 rwhp race tune tows great but I just cant help but cringe when I roll into it with a trailer so it'll get a more conservative power level for next year via EFI Live too.

sweet. I can tow no prob with my hot tune, but I can watch the gas gauge move!

I tow with the 80hp tune and it works awesome for EGTs. the big tune is for DD and tearing up sports cars that think they're fast


have fun with the EFI


quick funny story for ya regarding trailers.......I had mine hooked up, but it was empty (going to pick up the s10 from a friends) and a '71 chevelle pulls up beside me making all sorts of noise like he wanted to race. so I went with him from the stoplight and ran dead even with him up to about 75mph. that was pulling my 1800# trailer. he was not too happy
