    Bought this little gem back in 07 for 8500 bucks. Single cab, salvage title, 2tr-fe 5lug.

    A year later I moved to Va to stay with my grandparents/take care of them for a summer and crafted some lift spacers since nothing had come out and I was poor.

    How she is today

    Then I went at the interior dont even have a photo of my first install which was two memphis amps and two tens all carpeted and done out of MDF. Looked alright, hit good, sounded good but took up way too much space so I went and did this.

    Welded up an amp rack that bolted to the main support, Memphis 75x4, 50x4, and mono class d good to 1100@ 1. 75 was bridged and ran the mid basses, 50 was bridged and ran the tweets. For the older polk is sounded alright and I was again, broke as a joke so no sub for a couple years.

    Finally got a tax return worth a damn and spent it on an Eclipse AVn suggest by Dave over on CT a few years back. Best investment ever. AVN6600 only suck is that it came with a super outdated map disk.

    For a daily its fine, shes seen the dezz a few times but nothing extreme. I was going to eventually save up and LT her but a single cab and a 2tr-fe just dont cut it as a combo.

    Scored a set of 200SX seats for 100 bucks over at a local pic 'n' pull. Swapped sensor and harnesses. Bought an extra set of bucket mounts and built custom buckets. Sensors and airbag work. When I was extracting the inner bolt for mock up the damn inner nut snapped off so I had to reweld that to the body. Other than that they are great.

    As good as a spacer lift can ride. Stock bounce with added lift. Got way better when I did the lower control arm bushings.

    Yes their are but I want to be able accelerate without haveing to downshift two gears. Im on 32's now.... can only imagine on 33x12.5's....:(

    Picked up an indy hurst shifter for 50 bucks at the same yard a week later, went ahead and fab'd that in. Other than the tranny whine in 5th its legit:cool:

    Well daddy made good money a year ago so he reinvested in whitney, bought her new wheels and tires, BHLM her front, got her tinted, and redid the grill insert so here she is now with a photo in comparison to a 6lug. She sits about 3/4" higher now that I redid the LCA bushings.

    That is a solution yes, but Im tired of a regular cab, want enough room to cram someone else in the back for downhill/snowboard trips.

    Invested in some exhaust material, muffler, and cat. Highflow cat, magna muffler 2.25 in and out, aluminzed pipe with some U bends since I dont have access to a bender. SUCK This is what ended up happening. Get he same milleage and same performance but it sure does sound cooler. Also installed the URD sim to kill the light.

    After 120k miles the clutch finally went out so I went ahead and pulled that out in the garage and pop'd it back in. tractor whine went away with the new throwout bearing. Intersting that the OEM throwout was so noisey yet an aftermarket replacement is not.....:eek:

    Did a snowboard rack for shits and grins. Locks go on the bed rails so they cant steal the racks while Im shredding and the racks themselves lock so people cant steal my board while Im not with my truck.

    Thanks but, she's maxed out for my taste, been cruising list for X's as of late. Gonna get her top repainted and then hopefully sell for 7500-8k and buy an X. Its time for a bigger motor and some more cab space.
