I was wondering the same thing... I dunno, when it rains like that I have fun.... bald tires, rain, a heavy foot, and no weight makes a bad combo for me... I tend to burn out and fishtail all the time.

Couple months ago (may) I was coming back from Silverplume (bout 25-30 miles into the mountains) when I hit whiteout mixed with rain. All I could do was click my headlights off, turn my fog lights on and drive 40 the entire way home. Still managed to have fun with it!

Oh by the way, the trucks all look good!!! I'll say this, I love the stance Katie's got on hers. You know what you need on that thing... fiberglas fenders and go pre-runner style with it!

No, no prerunner look for me.

Yeah, I took a turn in the rain way too fast this weekend. I ended up having the truck do a 180 degree turn into a ditch. Scary ****... I turn slow now lol

Trucks look good. The Toyota doesn't need a CAI since the air is just gonna get cooled down by the intercooler anyway.

I am no longer getting a locker or doing much off roading, cause this truck has to last me until I am out of college and can afford another car.


I also can't afford to keep up with breaking parts from off roading/mudding.

No, there is no sarcasm. I mean I really love off roading, but sometimes you have to look at the big picture.

I just can't wait to get gears so I can actually keep up with traffic and a new muffler so I can sound awesome LOL

Go to a 4.10 if you have 33's. YOu don't need to go that steep with your gearing


Yeah... my tires are bald on the rear cause my limited slip is still nice and tight, so I chirp around corners all the time

hmm....

right after i got the truck on the road double lifted on 35's, i did about a 100ft burnout, started in 1st then shifted into 2nd gear, leaving dual marks......on dry pavement. Does that count?

That's right ladies...manual trans.

If you've got a 7.5" rear end I've got some 4.10s that are used that I got from someone that I could sell you cheap.

I dont spend 400 dollars on tires to kill all the tread with a pointless 100 foot burn out :]

Mine was an accident, I just hit the gas too hard and the tires spun for a couple seconds before gripping and taking me forward.

Everyone already had this fight and most agreed with 4.56s

I would rather be alittle steep then have low gears.

Funny burnout story.

Couple weeks ago I met up with my buddy Eric (he's got a 01 2.3L reg cab 2wd Ranger on 30X9.50's and DWB FTW!) at the Checker Auto Parts up by my parents house. So I go in, look for my stuff, pay, and we head out to our trucks. There were a couple punks in a couple STI's that glared at me, so I started the truck up, let the airbox make a nice sucky sucky sound, then took off... well the lot is small, so I rounded the median and laid into the throttle... lit the tires up a good 100 ft or so and got smoke to dump... the looks on the kids faces was priceless
