wait.. a 2.5L truck, lifted with super mudders and you have the ***** to add a fx4 sticker as if it really were a factory fx4? i loathe "wanna be's" who pretend there truck is something it isn't. as for your gearing, i feel sorry for your little engine trying to move all that extra weight around. you should've re-geared before you got the tires and lift.

That's my old truck... The one in my sig is my old truck. I'll update that today lol

There's no need to regear my truck. The 4.10's push the truck NO problem with the 4.0L.. I only use OD on the freeway anyways, so it's off 98% of the time.

As for the FX4 emblems, I didn't put them on there. I thought it was a FX4, but found out the FX4 wasn't made until 2002. I'm going to take them off this summer when I paint everything, possibly badge it with "Edge" badges. Don't get so pissed man... You should obviously be able to tell my truck isn't a 2000 and with my body style they didn't make the 2.5L... It's just a truck.

FALSE! You are WRONG! You know my little brother's truck.....2001 XL 2.5L!! Early 01 4cyl were the 2.5L, late '01 were the 2.3L Duratech.

HAHA! I'm faster than him!

ACTUALLY...so he's got 4300k headlamps, and i had them....they are bright white with a slight yellow tint.....the 3000k fogs he's running are yellow. I'm running 6000k now, and absolutely love it. I'd say the 4300k are a bright white halogen color.

They look really good...this pic doesn't really show the difference....stupid cell phone pics.

Forgot to add.......i could possibly throw my 6000k in his truck, and snap a pic! That would much better represent what your looking for.
