    My question is how the hell does your t-case "skid" still look so good?

    I hit the carrier bearing and the gas tank before I get a chance... :D



    But really, a true mid skid is on my list. I don't think I've ever really hit the transfer case, but I have very slightly hit my rear cat. Just a little dent in its shield. Surprised with all my wheeling that I haven't had more :notsure:

    I was able to get a skid row for a pretty good price IMO. I think it was $199 shipped?

    Don't know how well that would work with my allpro skids.

    Also, I've been devising a plan to fabricate another crossmember and adding another 3/16" skid that goes from the transmission crossmember. If/when I get around to doing that, I also should beef up the existing allpro skids that aren't overly impressive...

    Wash your truck dude. The "I drove through mud mall crawling in Walmart" look is lame.

    Looks the same as the day he came over to "help" with your lift. :D
    I don't think he ever washed it.

    HOLD ON! HOLD ON! I have photographic evidence that proves otherwise:

    There is just no way that anyone could contest the vilidity of these pictures.


    Mud covered truck at walmart is just ever so slightly better than the liquor store :anonymous:

    I hereby contest the validity of any degree you may or may not receive from your current school based on the fact that you obviously have not been taught to spell correctly.

    Hey, there was no mention of how much I helped.

    I don't think spelling is that imperative for accountants...

    I could buy my truck over again with this semsters tuition :(

    :cheers:

    Vaild question.

    I think those stories he was telling us about having mutiple girlfriends were all lies! You have to be desperate for a creeper to be attractive.




    Hmmm, depending on which way you define 'creeper' in that context could very much alter your understanding of that statement.

    And in typical Colorado fashion; I was bashing through snow well into July this year. And now here's the start of October:

    Yeah I bought out the accessories aisle at Autozone.

    So I got all of that plus:

    stick on hood scoop

    stick on louvers

    stick on flames

    a turbo AND a supercharger badge

    the biggest 4x4 sticker I could find

    a big windshield banner to support my favorite beer

    big mudflaps with outlines of naked chicks


    And a few other things.... :D
