you don't want anything thats been modified in that way, especially nitrous. it means he's beat on it..

nitrous can indirectly kill someone or total the truck.. normally its used when racing, so the nitrous won't.. but hitting a tree might.

mud?
i've seen a handful of all around buggies with big engines and nos.. its for the people that think 500hp off the block isn't enough, they need 150 more.

theres a ton of guys who jack up diesels and race them.

I see alot of nitrous rigs at the mud drags. Some of the mud buggies run straight alcohol with a 150 shot of NOS. They are crazy fast. Personally i think the truck is all for show. Way to high for mud drags. I guess it could be used for mud bogs but idk. I mean seriously... polished shocks?!!?? come on... It has Iroks too. All mud racers/boggers that know what they are doing and have that kinda money run Boggers.

This might sound stereotypical. But it seems (just like in the pic) people that put tens of thousands of dollars in trucks like that, tend to live in a house worth a fraction of their truck. It seems like whenever I see a trailer park, half the houses have piece of **** cars (understandably), and the other half have vehicles worth three times the house.

more Hp more fun

Hell ya nitros is a good thing when used the right way. I have used it on alot of Cars,trucks, sand rails, atvs, even as small as a 45hp minibike. Yes i said 45hp minibike. The whole idea is have the right set up for it and do not put to big of shot on to blow or cause damage.
