    I saw that guy's buildup, I think he has more money than brains. OK, I like a big truck,big tires, but that is just stupid......Everything might be bigger in Texas, but their brains sure aren't.

    Must...

    Why dump all that money, but not link it?

    Cuz he's too stupid to know how!

    I'll just spend eleventy thousand on springs that'll ride like a 400lb whore on a 20 yr old mattress instead...

    At that point, he should have just went and stole the light rig from the Ted Nugent concert and welded it in like so many others on the scary steering site.
