    hey ya'll...my name is dave brickey and im down here in sarasota, Fl.

    I am starting my own shop locally called 4PLAY OFFROAD and it's going great, im only 22years old and am holding my own quite well. i am staying busy lifting trucks and doing repairs on them also.

    anyways, on to why i am here.....



    i recently bought a new project truck about 2 months ago...it is my dream truck(87 longbed) and here she is....
    [​IMG]

    I picked it up for a thousand bucks with a clean title/no motor...but it had new tires/brakes, and NO RUST!!!!


    well, since i've been busy in the last two months it now has a 350 4bolt w/ 55k miles on it(im researching carbs and manifolds) with a new clutch, a sm465, a NP208 and i have a 14FF rear to swap in and am looking to convert the 10bolt to 8lug asap. w/ my tax return i will buy lift/tires/wheels and will hopefully have one bad ass trail rig. well, i know this isn't the right site for this...but here is my daily driver....
    [​IMG]

    it's an 01 w/ 9.5inches of lift and 4.88 gears,and lots more mods....haha



    anyways...i hope to learn alot from this site, and contribute what i can. i went ahead and bought the year long membership because i am a firm believer of contributing to good causes, and this site seems to be a good one for sure....well....im off to the other forums..haha

    Welcome to CK5, brother. Thanks for supporting the best 4x4 site on the Net. However, you've already broken one of the main rules of the site:

    NO TECH IN THE LOUNGE!!!!!

    :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    Now that we've got that cleared up, thanks for dropping in and saying hello. Would you mind if I moved this thread to the Garage? It'll see a lot more traffic there, anyways. :thumb:

    well guys....here's the plan for the truck...im gonna run either 38.5boggers or 39.5 tsl's with an 8in superlift/3inBL combo and get some zero rates for the front...i don't like to rub at all...and i hope i will clear them fine...but im not going to lie...a 60 or rockwells are definately in the future for this truck as it will be my 100% mud/trail truck...for now im gonna make it purdy and go get some bihatches around town on 40's....haha,

    oh come on Paul, there's no more tech in here than in the "post your junk" thread. :rolleyes:

    welcome to the site man... i am noticing one trend on the trucks on your page though... IFS... we gotta get you set straight... :deal: :D check out the IFS/88+ forums on this site too, although very few of us are keeping the IFS lately. :whistle:
