    Pro-Less work if it's what you want.
    Con-You get to put up with whatever work was done- Good, bad, or other wise.

    If I already purchased a truck that was already hooked up then I'd be all ready already

    I personally like the idea of being able to make a vehicle "your own" so to speak.

    If you want to get a truck already modded then you have to pick up problems(if any), to it.

    Pros: You can get the mods with out having to pay the new price, the work is already done...
    Cons: You don't know if they were installed right or work as they should, could of been bashed around and you don't know the "quirks" that tend to happen on specific trucks :notsure:

    Well. You might start by posting your question in an appropriate thread, and not coming out of left field in a completely off-topic way. How's that for starters?

    He's posted it in about 12 other threads...and he has been asked to stop. In line with that...Lets stop quoting it and talking about it.

    Back to buy pre-modified trucks....

    Back on topic....

    I personally wouldn't buy a heavily modified truck. Hopefully over summer I can pick up something like this. But that's about as much as I would want done. I would much rather buy used parts and put them on my self than buy it pre-modded. That being said you can always part out the mods and build a truck back up.
