    whats up guys? I pretty much new here, but i think this place rocks, no pun intended. a little about me. I have an 89 that has a 4 inch superlift softride lift with front and rear springs. I have a two inch body lift also. I just swapped in a dana 60 and a corp. 14 bolt rear with 5:13's and detroits front and rear. I have 38-14.5 swampers on 15x10 black steel wheels. I am about to order the new atlasII t-case that has the new stronger front yoke. The moter is pretty much stock, except for the upgrade coolong system, a new 4 core. The Tranny is a 700r4 that I had a local guy that has a very good rep, and a monster truck, its a gravedigger rippoff, rebuild with stronger cluches, a vette servo, a cooler, and a temp gauge. I have also added two Optima yellow tops under the hood and rewired all the crap the previous idiots have done. It has a few different stereo systems in it , since that is what I do for a living, but as of now, it doesnt even have a radio.I am going to br building my side bars and bumpers soon. Anyways sorry this is so long, I just Wanted to introduce myself.
    have a good night

    89K5 payed 3k for the rig, spent almost 7k in the last 6 months on upgrades!!!!

    Welcome dude. Your truck sounds tough as sh!t. I'm in the same boat with you. When I first bought my truck, about a year ago, I got it for $1800 and already spent just about $6000 on it already, not including the cost. That's why I'm broke and sucking down cheap booze.

    Welcome aboard. You said you do stereo stuff for a living. What kind? Sales or install. I'm an installer, so I was curious. Later
