$150 for a proper body lift supplies ISNT alot of money. A REAL paint job will be worth it in the long run. (unless you are going for the cheap look), and Glasspacks... well, ive never liked them so thats just a pet peeve unless its a lowrider or a custom with Bellflower pipes.

Do it right the first time. Even poor people can make $150 in expendable income with a little effort.
theres guys with flowmasters and magnaflows on there v6 trucks AND rangers at my school and they all love the way my truck sounds. thats one of the questions i get asked the most. so my glasspack is all good.

hookers? wow. i guess when you cant get it for free you get desperate lol that has to suck. short cutting things are fine for some people because some make it work. no problems as long as it aint a safety hazard

I've had it on there for almost a year. It still sounds great IMO. Not to loud, but louder than my old flowmaster 40. I'll get a video clip up soon.

having had one on my ranger at one point and having two on my chevy at one point, glasspacks only sound 'okay' on something with 8 cylinders....

back to the BL...my buddy makes his own for his trucks, he just uses square tube, 3x3, 4x3 5x3 (3/16th wall i think) whatever he wants then just drills a hole in it, and makes brackets, costs him like $25 for a BL. but he goes through trucks like mad so doesnt care to put money into them for a decent kit
