That's a lot of white!

Get the bish dropped...and dump the exhaust. Then worry about the other stuff IMO.

want to sell the mirrors?
yeah...but they arent power....that's the only reason why i dont want them.

I like the wheels.
thanks...only paid 900 mounted and balanced...
THEN i found the chrome ones for 900 also..so i kind of got mad..but then i realized...i like the polished..they are a lil lighter than the chrome ones.

yeah the truck is extremely dirty, except for the rear passenger panel..<just got it back from the paint shop...so it's cleaner then the rest of the truck>

im taking it to speedy's tomorrow before then Hinder concert in New Orleans.


i want to put turn downs again, after i put my exhaust system on..then do the 3/6 and put 3:90 with eaton posi then ill start saving for leather, and other toys.

i dont understand some of you guys and your fascination with side exit exhaust. if it were lead sled, or something with bubbly lines (a la Willys, etc) i could understand it, or with something built with a Craftsman truck theme, i could understand it. on anything else, it just looks like trash.

I really like the look of those escalades!
they are stock handles...took it apart and painted them along with the bumpers, mirrors, and we are about to paint the gauge peice that's on the inside of the cluster.

i didnt pay for it...i like it when im passing people....but other then that, i want to put turn downs back on it so i can lower it 3/6 and still would be able to go over speed bumps and crap.

Diamond Mazda in baton rouge on airline MAN! they have the tallest freaking speed bumps i've ever seen. i'd hate to have my drop kit on then get stuck on it when dropping and picking my sisters car up

side exit exhaust can look good IMO. That one however does not.

Rest of the truck is looking good though man, clean that bish up.

thanks, i paid 400 for rims..and the tires was only 200 more with the rims..but i want to drop my truck 3/6, so i bought some 285/55/18s...will possibly put a coil over set up on the rearend with a 4 link.. so i can have a stiffer launch...dunno though...might never do it because i want my truck to ride good.

i thought about the chrome ones...but i didnt want the extra weight...

if you want a more agressive launch, you want to go softer in the rear.

no, a softer setup will allow the rear of the truck to drop on launch. this will cause the weight to transfer to the rear of the truck, giving more traction to the rear tires.
