    the kid with the hat backwards just tells you about that truck. That would be NICE but would you want to wheel it?

    Get the new one, take the "roll bar" out, cut the exhaust tips off, and cover that paint with a nice rustoleum flat black primer and you will be set /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    also, cut the fenders and slap some 42"s on there. then use it like it was meant to be used,

    Is that guy in the pic, the one who is selling the truck?

    I'd pass on "white lightning." Nice trucks are overrated, you need something that you aren't afraid to wheel and scratch. You could find a one ton for less money if you wait, and it won't have that paint...

    nice man, I like the rig. If you have 2 trucks then you could even leave it like that and just mash around in it, and use the less showy one offroad.

    Well, personally I just don't like them because they don't do anything... If you roll over they will just buckle under the weight of that truck... I'd build a cage inside and continue it out the back of the cab into the bed /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
