Who’s the teacher you or her?
def her lol. We wouldn't be looking at a 3rd car if I was lol. We live in a town about 20 minutes from where I work and she finally got a job in town so instead of her driving my truck to work everyday while I drive the altima to work, I want to get something that she can drive a couple of blocks each day and I can park the '16.

So I was talking to my pops and he is looking for a new ride. Once he pulls the trigger I am going to buy this one off him cheap.

1999 4.8l 5spd 4x4. 160k but the tranny was just rebuilt. Runs great. Paint on the hood is bad but will replace with HD hood any way. Paint on the rear fenders and roof is also toast.

Plans are to lower, new wheels, and go fast chit. Has a magnaflow dumped and sounds pretty good.

I’m new to giant engine mods so I don’t know if this manual tranny will bolt up to a 6.0? Haha I’ll figure all that out and bigger engine will come later if possible

pretty excited. I didn't think he'd let it go so i never considered. already looking at stuff and it may not be for a month or 2 before i get my hands on it haha.

Yea i'm way ahead of myself. I'll be doing research on what needs to be done. If i'm going to spend the money on a 6.0 then I will spend the money on whatever needs to be done trans wise.

This is what I was gonna say.

If you go balls to the wall on a 6.0, might as well just swap in a TKO 5-speed.

How low do you want to go with it? I think belltech makes stuff to lower 4wds

loved the 2/4 on my 01 2wd but I would assume that a 4wd would sit higher.

As soon as I get my hands on it, I'm decranking the front and removing block and throwing shackles on while i figure out what I want to do long term.

IIRC, Bell Tech also sells a 2" lowering leaf spring shackle. That's what I used to level my yellow truck. BT does sell 4x4 lowering parts. I'm sure keys are part of it.

So my pops decided not to sell his RCSSB. Going to look at this 07 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 on Saturday. Really good price but it is a private sale so it worries me. Would y’all look for a general mechanic to take a look at it or the Dodge house?

I’m sure it was always driven conservatively.

Those trucks were built for AWD full throttle launches. Sounds conservative to me. :LOL:

These new smilies suck major donkey balls.
