what should i buy?

i have a chevy astro van i put on craigslist to sell for about 1500, well im getting calls on it all day long everyday. so selling it shouldnt be a problem. anyways the point of this is im planning on spending the money on my truck or to buy a used YZ125. but more than likely its gonna be spent on the truck. so heres the big question...... What to buy? i want more lift, i want bigger tires (33s and 35s cost me the same price) i do plan on getting a rear end w/ 4.10s and L/S btw

lose the quad and buy a bike (not a 2 stroke 125 though, go bigger). bikes are cheaper, faster, can go more places, more fun, and you can haul/store more in the same space. two wheels all the way!!!

dont buy a 125. buy a 250 4stroke. you will be so much happier with it. because once you have the 125 and get used to riding it you will want more power so might as well get the bigger bike.

I had a yz 125. It was a 2000. They were solid bikes and pretty much indestructible. I traded some guy for a YZ250 that was in better shape. He just wanted a smaller bike for riding with his girlfriend. Get rid of the 4 wheeler (racing couch) and buy the bike.

Im not getting rid of anything. I dont care about opinions on bikes quads or any of that. I have rode just about everything. And when i buy my next toy i know what i want. All im tryin to find is the price on lift spindles to know how much money i have to work with. I dont see prices on any websites or on here so yeah thats all im looking for

Since you will have a chunk of cash, I would do the rear end swap and also upgrade to Explorer discs as well.

do what i did put 4:56's in the rear with an ARB locker (lim. slip dosent hold a lock near as long) and with 4:10 your not going to notice a huge difference from stock (3:73's) and i know everyone says bigger gears worse mileage but the difference is very little 1-2 mpg
