Re: off it goes

I would have drove it in the trailer, then took a nap in the seat till you got there to unload. These trucks are heavy to push. Good luck

Re: off it goes

CHROMAHOLIC... glad to see this thing is going to get some much needed work done to it. Can't wait to see some updated pics of the work, and eventually the finished project.

You are getting your trucks/owners mixed up...sickred has the grey one (which 72BlckButy was asing about), Chromoholic has the two-tone formerly owned by crawdadfax who started this thread.

For those who are asking about sickreds truck, there are several recent threads on his truck..no need to hijack Chrome's thread.

Cant wait to see the updates Chromoholic!!

Good luck with your updates. Your taking an awesome truck and moving it up another notch.

With those huge new rotors, I think your going to need new wheels too....
