    currently my 89 is in the garage waiting for new axles right, so i have to take my moms Trooper, im 17 just so this all makes sense, to go pick up my sister from drivers ed, i pull into the parking lot and right up to another blazer/jimmy just like mine!!! same color and everything just his was completely and totally bone stock. Im eyeing up the thing and then all of a sudden this cocky teenager prolly 19 or 20 pops up in the window on his cell phone and gives me the "oh you wish you had this" look. Then the next thing i know he pulls off and leaves. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif i had one of those IF YOU ONLY KNEW YOU SOB moments. god that killed me, its so depressing having to ride around in something other than your hoss truck, all my ego and pride is sitting in my garage with that truck.
    Oh ya my ride stats:
    35's, 3 inch body lift, (4 inch suspension was slated for the go ahead until the axle problem came up) winch bumper, 4.88 gears, and as of two days ago a blown gov lock in my rear 10 bolt and i did it all myself
    new axles: Dana 60 front, 14bff rear /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    ok, I just needed to get all that off my chest, thanks for listening

    Hmm... I can't say I've ever gotten any of those looks... I had a guy checkin out my Scout the day I brought it home though... and I get a lot of "What the f*ck did he do to that Explorer" looks when I drive around in my Exploder... the ugliest one in town as far as I've seen /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Go cry to Jesus.

    I'm stuck driving a fawking Accord day in and day out. I'll start daily driving the K5 again if you pay the $2 a gallon for gas that we have right now. By the way, I drive 90 miles a day for work. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    And that's for the cheap stuff. When I got home, the Beacon down the street had $2.05 and there was a truck off loading, so I'm sure it will probably be a few cents higher in the morning /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
