Re: April 2010 - What is That?

I appreciate it Bill, and everyone who voted for me.

I really can't express how much it means to me. I made a lot of sacrifices to be able to build the truck. This makes it all worth it to me. I don't know when I have been more honored.

For folks who aren't familiar with my truck or what all went in to it, there are links in my signature to the build thread and my blog.

That truck looks real good. No need to ruin it with 20's. The 15's look perfect.

The Tribe has spoken. Congrats Tx Firefighter. If I'm going to lose (badly), it's good to see that we have a deserving winner.

Keep on Truckin.

Your truck is great. I've got some changes coming and I'm working hard to try and copy your stance.

You did say you have 275/60s on all 4 corners right ?

You and me both. I'm going to be changing my suspension when I put do the disc brake install. When I'm done I want the same exact stance. I hope we both have some success.
