1. Doesn't get sh*t for mpg's.
2. I'd like to think the stickers add a few HP's, but not sure.
3. Getting a deep well toolbox so I can have an air comp. in the bottom for a train horn and airing the tires up and down, and tools and tow straps and such on top.
4. Thanks I thought it would look good too, turns out it did. Didn't see any bone coll. air fresheners though.


Thought this one was pretty funny though

Default Stepdad's F-350

He's got an '04 stroker with the 6.0 money hole, 17" wheels, no idea what brand, brand new 33 or 34" Cooper Discovers' M/T's, a 3" sus. lift, 3" single pipe exhaust with a 5" silverline chrome tip, (EGR delete, stainless replacement pipes for catalytic converter and muffler, and bullydog programmer on the way), and a husky 5th wheel hitch in the back. He's scared to get it dirty by driving through little mud puddles in parking lots, his excuse is it's his Sunday truck and only wants to pull the camper and drive to church with it lol. It's a badass truck as it is though. Not a ford guy, but this truck is pretty damn cool.

A good place to start climbing is bundy hill, I've been with my dad and older brother, and since I enjoyed it so much, last weekend I bought an 89 xj to wheel with, also my first rig build.

In Michigan? I live in central Wisconsin so I don't have easy access to Michigan.

That video would have been good if the motor had let go.

It was for like 8 or 9 startups, put a new holley 4 barrel on and she starts like a champ now. Just gotta hook up the gauges and the speakers in the cab and she'll be road ready.

Default Opel









There's my '73 Opel GT, it's got some pretty large rust spots, but I bought a parts car and am replacing fenders as we speak.

Nice old chevy.And I love your opel gt,you dont see them very often.One of the first cars I ever drove was a 73 opel manta.
Your going to want some 4.56 or 4.88 gears with those 37s and it will be a fun truck.
Most of us have been there/done that a dozen times.I recomend gearing to match your tires,along with a locker or two as the best thing you can do.You can spend your money on big exaust,big cam,big carb,big whatever. Gearing and lockers are what get you across the shit,while your buddies cam,and stereo sound cool.

Great truck to start with....I've probably owned 25-30 of them over the years. The most recent was this little trail beater I threw together with stuff I had laying around at the time...no budget build.



'87 3/4-ton, TBI 350/TH400/NP208, 10-bolt front, 14-bolt FF rear, 4.11 gears. I did a shackle flip in the rear with the stock springs and relocated the shocks to the top of the axle, built 2" drop spring hangers in the front, relocated the front spring shackles to below the frame, put in some used 4" lift springs, and ditched the sway bar. Mounted up some Q78-16 (35.5x10.5-16) Buckshot Mudders that came on an old parts truck, welded the spiders in the 14-bolt and setup and old Gov-lok out of a 10-bolt rear axle in the front. All told I had less than $500 into the whole truck....including buying it with a blown motor and swapping in a used one.

Damn dude, thats a real budget build , looks like a nice truck to just beat the shit out of on the trail though.
