Handling..

New industrial area.. fresh roads.. street doesn't even have a name yet. Decided to mildly check it out.. didn't go full bore ( Never opened it up ) as this was my second time on this road.. down and back..

D. I've just fallen head over heals in love with your truck. Gotta talk to me man, I'm seriously debating what to do with my 4.0 to get performance out of it...

I can feel it's not pushing to the full capacity it can, and well... you're truck proves it to me.

Hit me up on AIM man, seriously.

Talk to the truck. It excites you more then I do

Buy my longblock. It will be available pretty soon. I would make a good guess it makes more power then a EE setup on a stock internaled SOHC.

It can go farther with machine work. I'm positive of it.

This is the first I have seen of your truck's interior, seen in motion or heard the exhaust . . . I wasn't disappointed.

Do these major changes happen to involve coil springs?

The appeal of your truck has somehow drawn me away from watching Paz Vega on Spanglish right now . . .

Want to know something funny.. I am.. Disappointed that is. Theres so much more to do.. Just need time to get it done.

Coils, spindles, a Visit to SSBC ( Stainless Steel Brakes ), Upper and lower control arms, Sway bar, Engine crossmember.. It involves everything I have done up front being plasma-cut or ground off and starting from scratch.

It WILL be much better. Snow will be here by weeks end I'm afraid. Its always ' time ' that becomes an issue.
