but i love the bigger cab to put tools and spare parts in so i can lock it up. That and i can lean the seat back and sleep in the truck for the nights i'm too lazy or drunk to setup my tent
lean both seats back and the center console and you can strech out pretty well, ive had to sleep in my truck too lol. oh and make sure you tuck your seatbelts down, theyre really uncomfortable when they jab you in the *** lol

after i do my 40/40 mod with the expo console ill have a harder time sleepin in my truck

Also, remember you're on a site dominated by lifted off road rigs. What do you expect the results of the poll to be? Do what y'all want, and we'll be here to support and help you out along the way.

Honestly, it's not looking good. The dealer is not giving me **** for the stang and Im not impressed with their attitude. I can actually buy a brand new 4x4 4.0 xtended cab for less than this truck. Looking like a 09 torch red 2.3 sport is in the works but we are about $1500 off where I need to be. Oh well I wanted the sport fender flares and a gas saver anyways.

I guess the eco-truck is the way to go. I've always wanted an AWD street burner though.

ummmm. We raced a 2.3 duratec auto bone stock against a stock 4.0 auto 4x4 with 3.73s... the little 2.3 actually took it off the line, then the 4.0 gets it up top. my truck with 4.10s and 33's beat it by 1/2 a truck up to 60, but i had I/E. The 2.3 duratec is a beastly little motor... I wonder how it will run with a bamachips tune, K&N intake, magnaflow exhaust, lightweight driveshaft and 4.10 LS....

So you finally got to race a Durasmack huh? And a stock automatic took you up to 60? Now I wish we had raced, 'cause with my intake exhaust tune and 5-speed I prolly would have spanked you. Ah well, there's always next year.

IMHO, 4.10 is a bit low for the D-tech and 5-spd. I like my 3.73s! Oh, and I got L/S too! AND an 8.8!

my truck has a 8.8 to i think i got a leftover or extra part truck, since my truck has a 8.8 4.10 limited slip.
