It's nice as hell right now, I was actually sweatin' earlier in a hoodie. Traffic is kind of bad with students around, I just take alternate routes that might not be quicker but less students/bad driver college girls - thus more enjoyable.

I was actually thinking of coming up to WY today to Curt Gowdy State Park but I guess it's too late for that now.

Nice Ride bro'. I was wondering how much your camper shell ran you and if those sliding windows have screens? I'd really like to pick one up for camping but don't need anything fancy.

It was like $1100 including tax, clamps, and installation. I have sliding rear window and sliding screened windows on the side



Thanks G'z

Nice truck!

I own a GTI now, but am SICK of not having a truck. I decided to order a taco in the next few months, and love the way the RC's look. I was undecided on color, but after seeing yours I know that it's going to be white.

Thanks mang and happy first post.

I always liked the storm trooper trend thing going, and it just worked even better getting a base model. I'd really like cruise control and bucket seats though, if I had known I'd be landing a solid job (hence my absence/lack of mods for last month) - I would have done things differently.

Just wire transferred $2500 from my Virginia bank account to my Colorado account to buy a commuter car. 148 miles a day round trip until August 1st when I'm out of current apartment in Fort Collins and hopefully somewhere in Denver within a few miles of work. So yea, $2500 that could go to mods = beater money. Still love the truck, plan on driving it a couple days a week so people don't think I'm a turd burglar in a 1992 geo prizm or whatever I end up with.

I know the feeling. I've got a beater honda, and while it'd be cool to sell it when I rid myself of the GTI and get a taco, I'll likely keep it just for the sheer "I don't give a f&*k" factor.

I said I'd go white (of course, my GTI is white lol) but it's either that or silver after searching single cabs on this site for hours on end.

Have you considered cruise control via junkyard stem?

The VW... trade ya:

Hah just picked up this gem for $1800, 201k mi. Second owner car, all highway miles. Drives perfectly for an econo car- lot better acceleration than my truck even at 1.2L less, 5spd shifts easily and clutch is strong. Drove straight, no vibration at highway speeds, tires good, interior very good, exterior good. Can't wait to drive it to work on Monday, sitting in line to register it now. From 18mpg x 750miles a week to 40something!

questions

Hey

Just got a white 2013 reg cab and kind of wanting to go in a similar direction as you with it so couple questions for you.

How difficult was it to paint the front grille emblem?

How is the ride with the bilsteins on 2.5 and the add a leaf?

Well the ride was awful to begin with stock. It's still awful but i couldn't say how much worse... If you're nitpicky about ride you'll probably want to go to bilsteins all around but no lift. Grill emblem was ez but i had grill out to remove headlights. I used rustoleum satin black but it's starting to chip finally, i'd prep it better if i could do over.

Anyway, just doooo it

Thanks.

Got the front emblem done. In the process of doing the rims as well right now.

I got the Bilsteins here already just can't decide on the height I want to set them at. I'm not a stickler for ride but have read some stuff on here where people act like its the end of the world haha

Sorry if you've posted this elsewhere, but what do you think of the SilentArmors after all this time? Would you buy them again?

I'm in the market for tires and can't decide. Definitely going 265, just not sure which tire.

Thanks man!

Fink

zero complaints with them, still would have gotten duratracs if the price had been right, but silent armors have great traction, quiet, and wear thusfar suggests they'll last a while (at like 10-12k on em now)

Thanks for the input! DuraTracs are definitely high on my list, but the more I think about it, the more I don't know how smart it is when I live in such an urban/suburban area. I'd mainly be getting them for looks.

The good news is I only drive about 800mi/mo., so regardless of what I get, I won't be replacing them for a long time.

Thanks again for the response! Hope you had a great 4th!

Fink
