he has an avalanche and it was 4/6 and 22s. now he is slways telling me how i should do things and he knows everything attitude. well he has a minitruck also thats bagged and bd and its nice but i think he had someone elso do most fo the work. anyway he was getting his avy bagged and i asked him what setup he was doing and he said the shop was gonna mod the four link to make it lay and just stock arms and cups up front. and conti bags and stones and viar was all a freebie cuz he says hes sponspred lol. any way he gets his truck aback (and after telling me it was gonna lay frame) the first thing i say is damn that bish is like 3in from layin out. and hes like you know how hard it is to make these trucks lay you wait youll find out. and then i was like damn put some spindles on that bish you got the worst neg camber.AND HE TOLD ME HE HAD MCAUGHYS 3" DROP SPINDLES THEY DONT EVEN MAKE THOSE LOL. he didnt cut anything and hes bagged on 22s with 265/35 and the worst neg camber.
SHIT MY TRUCK TUCKS ALMOST AS MUCH AS HIS IN THE BACK AND ITS 5/8.

You find out who the true riders are once you talk to people. When I lived in KS I had an 88 Monte SS. Well there was some clown who had an 85 jacked up with some 26s on it and he though he was the shitz. (I must admit, he did have a nice paint job). Anyways I ran into him at the car wash, and he was tellin me how I should go 22s or bigger. I told him I was happy with my 15s. Then he went on about how custom his paint job was and how custom his suspension was. I asked him what he had under the hood. Thats when he said it was a stock 350. Any Monte SS guru knows the only SS that came with a 350 was produced and sold in Mexico. Then I told him he was leaking oil thats when he proceeded to say he was taking it down to FL to get a "racing motor" LOL. I could tell the guy had never turned a wrench in his life.

In no way am I saying there is anything wrong with paying someone to build or buy a built vehicle. Just don't act like you know whats going on when you don't.

Oh, and I saw his vehicle almost a year later and it was still leaking oil.

damn i know people exaclty like that too. this one tard told me his built N/A impreza would beat a sti. its still a 2.2 and the sti is 2.5 boosted buddy. he may have better torque but he would kill the top end in the straights

I think oil leaks are badass. Just ask my blazer.
leaking oil is just one of those things that happen as a vehicle gets older. I was just giving him a hard time since he was being a douche bag. With all that $$ he put into the wheels, suspension, and paint he could have had his engine rebuilt at the very least. I dunno about you but I would rather have a running vehicle than a broke down vehicle that is sitting in my drive way lookin pretty.

maybe its because I dont do the hard stuff on my rides, but I hate the whole built not bought argument.
People (no one in this thread yet) need to get off the fuckin high horse and relize that different people know different trades. rant over.

instead of bashing this guy behind his back how about you educate him???
the guy that he's talking about sounds like type of guy that won't listen or admit to not knowing it all.

i think it goes both ways, people that buy rather than build think they are better too. guys in the rst's look at my truck cause it has stripes and just say thats just a wanna-be. instead of saying nice truck, they stare me down.

i was never taught how to work on trucks before i was even 18. but i bought books and looked on the internet and asked guys about how they got it done. and i have pride for what ive done to my truck. so i guess you could say im on the built side rather than bought.

i talk to people like that all the time. you realize real quick they think YOU are the one that doesn't know shit (for some strange reason, i guess they don't realize what you have) and that they know everything. i love it when people try to educate me about suspension and whatnot when my truck, which i promise is the flexiest DDed truck around here, is sitting 150 feet away in the parking lot...

ah reminds me soo much about an old friend that thinks his riced out mustang on 20's is the best in the world. this guy is cool in all but when it comes to cars he needs to keep his mouth shut. one time a lil 89 4 door civic was reving at him and i told him to race him and he did but it seemed he didnt even try. and i was like awwwwwwwwww how emberrassing and they took off laughing. i asked how can he let them beat him and he said bcuz his BADAzz system in the trunk is too heavy for the speed.

hey lizeth hear this one:
that day when harry and i where installing the kp kit on my truck. my ol bud kept blabbing on his to-do list on his mustang. harry and i didnt want to hear him so while i was drillin out some holes in the frame i told notorious boy to shut up and pull up my pants. hahahahahaha

ok im done:pow:
