GMFS:
I am targeting this thread mainly for the younger guys. This summer I am looking for some good jobs and ways to make money. You guys running lifts, drops, tires, and wheels (the expensive stuff): How did you pay for it? I am 16 years old. I am about to add a 3" BL mainly because that is all I can afford, but in the near future I want to build the truck up more. ( Susp., tires, wheels, gears) Just looking for the stories of how you guys got way up there or bagged on 20's etc. I appreciate all your replies

I know exactally how you feel. The job I have now can barely be considered a job. It pays for the gas and thats about it...whatever is left over I have to save for repairs down the road...lol...I'd love to get a good job over the summer and make a little more cash for the truck. I need some ideas too...

Just get a job and save as much as you can. Or you can take an easy/risky way out and start sellin illegal stuff(demand never goes down). But if your like someone I know and you get caught, you're screwed.(He was able to post 1 million dollars bail and skip town)

Get a job and only eat Ramen noodles.
I swear that is how my friend saved money.
He will eat Ramen noodles and water until he saved enough for his truck.

Just buy things piece by piece, I had my rims/tires over 2 months before I lifted my truck.

i worked at a supermarket for about 2 years for summer money... worst job i've ever had. Old fat women. sigh.

Now i deliever pizzas for a living. Its a pretty chill job. All i do is drive around listening to music, take orders, and make an occasional pizza. Right now i make about 150 in tips for a weekend, and get 75 bucks in wages... not bad for only working 15 weeks :D
