    hey guys i want to see if 12 socal guys are willing to help each other out to get their trucks LT'd.

    ok read 1st before you bash me... so we can start in january, each of the 12 guys or girls puts in $100 bucks totaling 1200 and gets there lt done. in february we do the same and another guy gets his LT. and so on. i would like mine done in april as that will be the only time i have to do the work as my baby will be born in april and ill take a couple weeks off work.

    i know an LT kit doesnt cost 1200 so you must have cash to buy your shocks/fenders, etc.

    i think we can make this work with 12 trustworthy guys on here.

    we need to give out each others number, address, and possibly sign a contract so guys/girls dont say they dont have money after they get their truck LT'd.

    i really think we can make this work and help each other get our trucks LT'd

    let the bashing begin!!!! :D




    January
    February
    March
    April -Tacomaville
    May
    June
    July
    August
    September
    October
    November
    December

    BTF is probably the least expensive lt kit, they have great rep on desertrangers. they havent made one for a 2nd gen yet so they're looking for a guinea pig, they will make it for 1,400 so its pretty great. you dont have to get it done with them though. as long as we help each other out to get our trucks LT'd.

    Great idea for sure. You should stick your name on December, that would let them know you were serious.

    yup a 100 a month from each person for a year, but you need to have some money or credit cards to pay for the other stuff you need. if we can make this happen im gonna pay for some kings with a credit card, ill get a 0% for 6 months.
    get LT zach you can always train in 2012...

    Exactly what I was thinking. :D

    It would mean you trust that the rest of the folks on the list will shell out $100 each after they already have their kits and you've spent $1100 with no personal return.

    Just remember, if you are going to LT the front, you have to LT the rear. There is no way avoiding that at all.

    I don't know how $1200 can buy you anything close to LT. . . Considering a Full LT Front & Rear w/Fiberglass will run you 10K+

    If you want a kit for $1200, hit up BATCH RACING :rolleyes:


    If you're NOT Ready, you're Not Ready. . .


    Thats too much trust & responsibility for complete strangers for a year. You'll never know in a year financially each and every individual endures. . .

    Nice idea but thats what a Credit Card with 0% APR for 12 months is for. Then make sure you have a low APR after the 12 months is up.

    Dedicate that Credit Card to your LT Fund and you'll be ok.

    Thats the Best Idea at that point as you can personally place funds each month into it to pay it off accordingly.

    Though it was a nice gesture to get people to help one another out, $100 a month is expensive, especially for us who are married with kids.

    if you had real close friends it would work.or maybe if you all did sidework together and banked the money.
