    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    I'm not a Doctor or anything but I would assume too many of those things have to be not good for you. But I would have to admit every once and a while I'll have one but not very much, just water for me most of the time. But out of the 2 or 3 times I'll have one in a year I would say the Green colored Monster energy cans are the best or I like them the most out of everything else. They are also good when eating cheese-its! :D

    Thats a pretty awesome website!

    I don't drink energy drinks all the time but I do every now and then but $2 or $3 for a drink is a little steep compared to coffee lol

    There is so much marketing behind these energy drinks. They are all just about the same. This is where I usually get my source.

    http://www.energyfiend.com/the-caffeine-database

    Look at the top of the list. Starbucks. Thats the way to go. The sucralose, aspartame, etc, in some of these energy drinks really can bog you down.

    Although Moster is the best tasting liquid on the planet.

    i get these from a buddy with a supplement business (muscularsynergy.com)

    [​IMG] cherry flavor :thumbsup:

    i use one before riding mountain bikes......fantastic energy levels.

    it's just B-12 (something like 33,000% of daily req)

    i'm sure you piss most out after a couple of hours, anyway

    i love this stuff

    None. Stock with options - Roof rack, running boards, hood scoop, etc.
    Interesting site.. Red Bull does it for me, but only once in a while. $4 for a 16oz can is bit much. Anyone try the Red Bull Cola?

    i use 5-hour as well as B-12 shots.

    the difference is 5-hour has caffeene

    it works nicely, though (i usually sip on one all day)

    I usually take half a 5 hour power about mid afternoon when i start getting groggy. doesn't really give me loads of energy, just gets me bak to normal and not feeling like im going to fall asleep at the wheel. thats all i need

    I usually just stick to coffee but energy drinks are a good pick me up when I'm on the road.
