kool. if you find a good deal on that fron 60, you might want to jump on it. even if you dont build it til later on.

i plan on making a trip to NC next summer for several days to wheel with my brother and some fellow r-fers if their down, you should come

That thing is a beast! Cant wait to see some action shots.

You have more ***** than I do to wheel that thing without a spare. What are you gonna do when you put a hole in a sidewall 15 miles from the nearest "road"?

I don't think he's doing all this to his truck for the MPG. I really don't even think he cares.

most of the time, its not really cost effective to drive it. lol

once i get new rubber and wheels it will be even less because they are so pricey.

I mean I drove it to work today

Once the 5.4L is in I really wont be driving it as much because it will suck even more fuel.
