yeah, I would say that having a regular cab helps, but my buddy/roommate (who drives suped up 300ZXs and 350Zs all the time thinks my truck has some pep to it. I only have intake, exhaust and a heavy foot, and I don't think it's too bad compared to some other cars and trucks I've driven. I would imagine that once I get a pulley kit, e-fan, headers, and a programer it would make a big difference.

Well, I have stock suspension and regular sized tires. Once I drop it and put 18s with tires with a little lower profile, it should be about the same.

I think mine at least SOUNDS pretty good these days, lol.

This is the movie Tom (TBarCYa) took of me climbing a hill -- twice. If at first you don't succeed...I like the way the truck sounds.
