    thank you. i take a lot of pride in her (as anyone should with anything they've worked hard on) i catch a lot of hell for being a little female and driving such a big ugly truck, eventually she'll be white or grey with some nice bumpers and such. i do mosta the work myself, a buddy of mine helped out a lot with the axle swap tho.
    i am going with a 24V bc i got it free (with less than 12k miles on it) and i want the nv5600 vs the nv4500 but i like both. the twelve valve is an easier swap bc its also mechanical and requires less electrical junk. but i cant pass up a free engine, esp a cummins.

    true true. my burb is white. i usually dont like white trucks but i really like old white burbs. i am fixin to put a strip of herculiner on the bottom foot running from front to back. Here are some pics of mine. If you look at the album called Tires, it will be the most recent. its going to look sick with that black stripe and will add body protection. im lookin to rebuild my rear bumper for better clearance, and want to add rear quarter panel protection too. white is a good color choice IMO

    EDIT: yea i can see people givin you crap for bein a girl. i know im not suposed to ask, but how old are ya? usually when a girl posts up on one of these boards with a sweet truck like yours, the guys are askin for pics ofher and not the truck...:D

    EDIT AGAIN: sorry to hijack the thread...

    what do you mean by flexed out? the superlift springs arent bad at all. i'm happy with them, they have improved the ride 100X. i've had her in some pretty interesting spots and they seem to do well for such a heavy and long truck. When i put the cummins and new bumpers on her i'll switch to a 8" lift in springs to accomidate the sag.

    this is what she looked like when i got her for 1000 bucks and a straight through drive to and from south carolina with my mastiff and two guy friends!
    and a pic of me and my muddytruck. ( i jumped out and sank to my knees-my muck boots stop about 2 in below my knees....)

    this summer i am planning: replace pass front quarter (already got), linex interior floor board, replace/paint/finish all trim, new headliner, build full console to accomidate CB and radio, new dash guages to accomidate cummins gages needed, seats, seat belts, some sanding on rear rocker, finish welding and mount my roofrack and spare on roof, light for rack.... and anything else i come up with!

    oh, that's what i thought. no i haven't. i've only had her out a handfull of times, and mostly muddy old trails on post. never had the oppurtunity to do that, but this summer i plan on it, i'll be in alabama camping with the horses and truck while i wait for my bf to graduate basic training and i will def play around with it then.
    i've only had the axles and lift under her for about 8 months and had the tranny out all last month rebuilding it so i've been driving the Cummins or the Ramcharger until lately.

    i REALLY like them. the ramcharger has the same tires. they are quieter than any tire i've driven on the road (as far as muddn or offroad) and clean the mud out pretty good in my opinion.
