Hey guys, so I was just finishing up a couple of projects I was working on recently and throwing ideas around what to build next and its probably gonna be a bagged nbs. But the snow just flew up here and the idea of building a third vehicle that I can only drive for half of the year is depressing haha. Got me thinking why not build something that im excited to put the insurance on in the winter rather than pissed I have to park the other cars. Im not talking just buying a sti or raptor that's easy but building something somewhat cheap that can handle anything the winter can throw at it and still not get washed everyday cause its worth 60k. The best ive come up with would be nbs 4x4 1500, try to keep it somewhat low center of gravity cause slidding sideways around all the empty steets is the funnest part of winter. engine 5.3- tuned basic bolt ons exaust ect, maybe port the stock heads a bit, cam and fast intake, maybe a small turbo could be fun to( don't need crazy power no traction most of the time), trans- just shift kit corvette servo( same reason not much traction so doenst need to be crazy strong), cant decide witch transfer case, awd would be sweet but I like to put it in 2wd to do some drifting, maybe the auto 4x4 tc? suspension- jd fab- mid travel kit with some good shocks, don't think full long travel would be worth it not jumping it or anything just need to soak up the bumps when the streets that don't get cleared all the time get really rutted up, some studded winter tires 33's would be perfect I think on a 20" rim to keep the sidewall small. Don't want to be sliding sideways and hit some clean pavment and rip the tire off the bead. Then the little stuff like heated seats dual batteries ect, What would you guys add, or start with something totally different? Say 10-15k budget?
