That is good to hear. I guess the Stage 9000 clutch doesn't help either, nor does the 4.0 under the hood. I don't think i've ever felt so much power in my life!!!

Your truck is just newer. 10k miles vs. 100k miles.

Same displacement, slightly different block.

HAHAHAHAH!! Got myself a new sig quote now!!




For grant, it's like 2 feet taller, 2 times heavier, 3 times more powerful, 4 times the clutch grabbyness and hardness of the pedal, locker, and gearing makes it easier to drive, not harder. Most of that applys to Marie as well.

My truck is a *****...I even admit it.

BTW...Marie's truck STOMPS mine in the power and fastness department. She's got 70k less miles, and has 3.73s and 33's....effective ratio of like 3.20. 3.20!!! I should be able to stomp her...but nooooooo....i just keep up. lol.

Either. 35's with 4.88's should be pulling away from 33's with 3.73's.

Take into account my wear vs. hers, and she wins....also, the 'seat of the pants' meter on both vehicles lean her way.

Her truck: unmolested 23k.
My truck: chugged water 3 times + 107k. It probably has the wear of a 200k engine on it.

Hence my search for a low-mile 04+ long block. lol. All because of driving her truck. lol.



Back to the thread....

Anybody in the Portland area wanna stop by and help me take this bed off? I can't stand seeing it on the truck...the more I look at it, the more it makes me want one more and more and more. It's a sickness, really it is. Just SOOO damn hot looking.

False. Steppies aren't lighter, they have pretty thick fiberglass fenders on it. Shane guessed it weight the same as his bed including the headache-rack and bedbox....
