    if you look in the gallery under my user name there should be a few pic's of my burb . I have to say that hacking 22+ inches off the a$$ end did great things for my departure angle . If you are gonna seriously wheel it then hack the back off .

    Oh yeah baby! I know what ya meant!


    That would be like me getting 44" rims for my 53" tires.....

    ...actually if I do the math...

    ...let's see carry the one the derivative of 3x^2 is 6x....so it would be like 29" rims for my 53" tires......

    WOW:shocked: :screwy: :what: :yikes:

    Ive seen that truck in person and it just kinda seemed like he just treied to make it "cool". The front shocks are actully coilovers that have no coils and the shock hoops feel like if you shook them hard enough you could brake them off. The intereor seems like it too was in poor shape. I dont know i just wasnt impressed. Like i said i just caugh the "aint my truck cool?" vibe from it.
