i dunno. lift will cost more, especially with tires. Save your 500 bucks for later. It's not like its illegal to save money is it?

I figured the Bama Programmer was going to come up. Thinking about it, but wondering if there might be anything else.
No, it's not illegal to save money. On the contrary, I've got about $4K in the bank right now. This $500 was given to me for the express purpose of being used on the truck. It's kind of a going away/late birthday present.

Haha, $500 worth of gas works out to being about 2600 miles worth. But, the gas bill isnt an issue right now. lol.
As for an e-fan, what's the best one to buy and where?

Jusnesmodified.com If you search there's a thread right know about a group buy in., The more people who buy in the lower the price.


Also, weirdly 2600 miles is jus how far i need to go when i move. Send that money up to me in AK you prophet.

Unfortunately July 6th is actually the day I leave for boot camp. lol. So the group buy is out.
Anywhere specific I should look at the bama tuner at? I'm assuming Jusnes, once again?
Oh, and what about exhaust and intake? Should I start there, and THEN get the Tuner?

you can still buy an efan without the group buy, its a decent price and still a good mod.

as far as the programmer, you can get it from us or from bamachips.com, youre getting the exact same tuning, some people on here find it easier to get in touch with us about questions wtih the tuner, though we do offer some support to people who buy them direct from bamachips

Yeah, go with a bama tuner, I wish I had when I had all that dough saved up... I bought rims that rust and tires that spin in the sand...lol. But that was a little more than 500, still.

I buy lots of stuff from Jusnes Modified. I've got my light bar coming in tomorrow, actually.
