    Well, lets see...since I told you to get a ticket and go scratch, that entitles me to 33 1/3 winnings. Please kindly remit a USPS MO in the amount of $166.50 to Manny. I'll PM you my addy :D

    Ok now that I'm done upgrading Manny :deal:...

    Anyone got some cool suggestions?

    A few of my ideas where:

    - Optima battery

    - Buy the other chromo shaft for my 10bolt rear because it has 1 stock and 1 chromo now... :doah:

    - Headers? maybe...

    - Save the $$ for college expences, you know like beer :p:

    Put the $533.50 in a savings account for 30 days and discipline yourself not to spend it. This way, during the 30 days you can really think about what you want to do. Kindly get my $166.50 into the mail tomorrow. I'd appreciate it! :D

    :waytogo: Honestly, I'd save about $450-$500 for college and spend the difference on your truck. Don't dump all of it into your toy now. You have years and years to upgrade you rig but you may only have motivation to hit the books for a limited time. That's just me. Nice rig, congrats on the funds, good luck bro.:waytogo::D

    I think thats the way I'm leaning...

    I'll take like $200 and fix what needs to be fixed, (exhaust and cracked frame) then save the rest :deal: :D

    Save up a few more dollars and get a winch. You can get a ramsey 9000 worm gear from summit for like 950 or so.

    $200 on parts, and then the $550 on a team of crack whores to install them! Aww man that'd be great! Midget crack whores, even better! Wait wait wait... they prefer to be called little crack whores, my bad.

    Seriously though, headers and fix the frame, save the rest.
