Re: Lets see all out show trucks

Rain or shine it gets driven it to the store, to all the shows we go to, getting my son from lacrosse practice and picking him and his brother up from school.

Re: Lets see all out show trucks

I don't usually drive it in the rain but I have been caught in it( don't have wipers) last year we drove it to Montana to visit relatives and to attend a weekend car show. I have the rock chips to prove it

No rain, but I drive it to work at least once a week, plus it's my driver on the weekend.

Re: Lets see all out show trucks

I wouldn't call mine a show truck, but I try to keep it nice while I drive it about 4,000 miles a year from April to October. Average about 80 car shows and cruise nights a year and have managed to pick up over 40 trophies the past 3 years.

Re: Lets see all out show trucks

She looks good enough to win them and I make it to a few shows, but she's no trailer queen. The only trailers she sees are ones she pulls or the one I used when the engine blew. Even if I don't have the heart to use the bed, I still use the truck. As far as beatings she is getting a newer motor after last year, so you could say I wasn't to nice to it.

Talking Re: Lets see all out show trucks

Mine is driven almost daily + I took it on the 2013 Power Tour. I put 3200 miles on it in 8 days. On June 8th I will be on the 2014 Power tour again in it with new 6.0 LSx motor and 4l80e transmission. I wouldn't call it a all out show truck by any means but I do keep it clean and waxed best I can.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Re: Lets see all out show trucks

Some bad to the bone trucks on here- this thread delivers! (Butternut for the win!)

Not an all-out "show truck" but we have a couple trophies- and it hauls a bass boat, too!

Re: Lets see all out show trucks

'Rose' tends to get a lot of attention when I show her (Best of Show first time out), never been on a trailer and no, I don't drive her in the rain either.

Re: Lets see all out show trucks

I did a full frame off on mine . I've driven a couple thousand miles in two years . I drove to cruising the coast 6 hundred miles . Only time I've ever left outside overnight was cruise the coast . No driving in rain . Only time she gets trailered is when kids want to attend show and I'm the only adult . Can fit 4 kids on the front seat . Not a show vehicle but a nice attention getter . Does a great job putting black marks on pavement !!! I think I'll drive more after power steering and brakes are added .
