    Goodbye Tundra...

    Trading in on an 03 ram with a hemi, dual exhaust, brake controller, 64k miles, etc. . I'll miss the tundra but I won't miss the payment. I'll own this outright. I know it's not the ultimate tow rig but not having a car payment will be nice. Got a new ford focus for a company car. Holy crap is it nice. Leather, my ford touch, 6 speed, ambient lighting, rain sensing wipers, wifi, etc. Lots of buttons lol

    Yup. Not the full time case either which I was happy about. "88" it's on 17s. I figure I'll trade it in in a few years when Amelia is old enough to go. Till then I'll be glad to be out a car payment.

    I'm happy with them. They did well on my tundra. Gave me 27 which I thought was very fair.

    nice rig.. did you print out a sample of the "this guy is on crack thread" and tell them you used premium fuel and synthetic oil to get the extra $$ out of them..

    Here's the new truck. I'm not sure what's up with this pic. I don't know if it's the angle or ifnit was parked oba curb or what but it looks ass high. In person that's not the case. I'll get better pics up later that show it.



    I got 28 for the tundra and paid 12 and change for the ram. It's a hemi with good buttons. Tonneau and bed rails and exhaust.

    I need to order some non gay stock lights for it and ditch the chrome door trim. But I really like it.

    All Rams sit ass-end high, I have a leveling kit for the front new in the box in my garage. I'll see if it fits a 1500, you can have it for $50.

    Please do your self a favor and buy the torsion bar adjustment keys, I've seen my buddies do that to all thier trucks and it makes them ride like crap and wears the tires funny. I think the key kit is only 100 bucks brand new. I loved those 20s on our ram, made it handle like a sports car, tires were kind of limited but the best ones we found were Coopers, around 160 each I think. That is a nice looking truck tho, any plans for it?
    97 Ram 2500 V10 5 Spd on 33 ST'S, Intake and Headers soon to be leveled with 4:10s

    Just getting rid of the dumb tail lights and chrome. And I'll probably do a tuner for tow/haul tune. If it sits ass high that's fine. It's just gonna be a tow pig.

    It's not illegal, it's frowned upon.
