Dude, FMD has spoken, and he isn't happy. It's time to cut the crap and undo the mods Zach.

Beard,
I did infact think your truck was awesome when it had the 30 under it, then it wen tto the 44 which took a little getting used to, and right as i absolutely loved it, you cut it up. I was fond of it with the leaf sprung rear, and it looked awesome, however, as it has been said, it wasnt as functional as you would have liked for what you use it for. the amount of time, skill, money, planning and thinking that has went into it is mind blowing and no matter what it looks like, it will always be awesome because you did it yourself

And THAT is the sole reason why I actually have grown fond of the truck. It has been BUILT not BOUGHT. Everything you've done to the truck has been YOURS, Zach, not some westin pushbar with a couple of lights on it.

I'm just surprised no one has posted a anti dc-1 thread. Lol you build your truck for your liking. Not anyone elses. I don't care for the roll bars on his truck but I guarentee you they serve a purpose. I personally respect every RANGER on this site. I couldn't tear down anyones hard work even if that work is just a part time job to afford the payment for a stock truck.

Also on a side note why do some mods butt there noses into stuff that is none of there business? From what I've seen zach can hold his own. You can't even have an opinion on this site anymore without someone crying about it. %80 of peple on this site don't like my truck and post negative stuff about it. Do I ***** and cry to mods.... Never. Grow up kiddies.

Opinions are like *******s, everyone has one, most of them stink.

I like this quote. Mods need to stay out of the threads and stoping being ****'s. Stop trying to control things so much. If people want to b*tch and give their opinion then let them do such.

Im with the majority here, I have respect for most all rigs on here lowered, lifted, and so forth. This forum has taught me so much, and its generally from people whom did something like Zack there was no support nobody had what they needed so they made a plan and ran with it, granted Zack ran alot further than most but he has my undying respect for one reason UTILITARIAN Function over looks, he actually uses his truck not like most of the mall crawlers around here whom take it to the local 4x4 shop have lift wheels and tires poped on and call it custom when they didnt even turn a wrench.

You know what... Wouldn't bother me. Freedom of speech is very important to me. I love my truck. I could give two ****s less if someone else doesn't like it. I don't like green beans. Does that mean they are nasty? No. It means I don't like them.

and to go with the rig, the people here that have met Beard in person will know, he is a great person, i have more respect for beard than just about anyone else on here, he is never angry, never mean, just laid back, super smart, awesome, never insults anyone (even though im sure he would like to sometimes lol) super friendly (even when you know you are talking to him about something he could care less about, which i usually do) basically an awesome person

I like the fact that Beards truck is so damn shiny. Its so dang clean, cleaner then my truck. I liked it more before too, but the fact is that it's his truck, not mine. As long as he's happy with it and it kicks *** that's all that matters.

Beard, I am honored that you used my tools to work on your truck at the dunes. haha.

Oh, yeah, DC-1's SUCK! As long as beard never puts them on his truck......

Notice the passed tense...

Now to each his own, its your truck your money and we do still live in America so do as you wish... But for a long time I have bitten my lip and not said anything... Well, tonight, I am saying something..

I think what you did to your truck, is terrible.

There I said it...

Now that not to say I dont like you... I just dont like what you did to the one blue truck, I actually liked.
So what? Dave was honest about how he felt. There is nothing in his post that isn't something Zach probably hasn't heard before. Cut the guy some slack.

Could he have sent it in a PM? Yeah, prolly, but he didn't. Oh well. Lay off of Dave. Zach seems to have taken it exactly like Dave intended. Neither of them got s#!tty with each other, so what harm was done?

IMO, none at all.

Personally, I like SOME of what Beard has done, but I'm not a fan of everything. I guess that makes me retarded? Not even.

Thanks to Dave for having the guts to be honest, and thanks to Beard for accepting what he said for what it was worth. Finally something productive on R-F.

/soapbox lol

What is wrong with bolt on parts? Maybe that's all he has time/money for...

I hate to be the "devil's advocate" on this, but jeez, let the guy voice his opinion. Isn't this what the forum is for in the first place? To help each other and talk trucks?

LMAO... I'll be honest beard, I'm not a fan either (not that you care) just 'cause I don't like the cage... but I get the point and that's why your truck wheels and mine pounds pavement... I have to agree on loving it being built, not bought..... but Dave... you really gotta put it out there like that!? lol


LMAO
