Nice looking truck, you need to give particulars, engine size, how much lift, what kind, and what not. What plans do you have for it besides the engine? Did you remove the tire tracks from the grass in your yard before your mom got home? Don't want to get in to much trouble now do ya? ;D

If you think that the motor is crapping out then it's time to build a bigggg motor. I used to tell my parents that (big cams, headers, etc) were essential parts that were needed. It worked.

Well, unless the motor was REALLY mistreated, or it has 3-400k on it, it'll last ;D Trust me, mine is almost @ 200k.

ok, its got a 318, the rear has what looks like 6" blocks, but the front has much much smaller blocks like 2 -3" maybe ???. Today I traded 2 small lights off the front for a push bar that a friends uncle had laying around, now i just need to find the time to get it bolted on. Last night I figured out the tail lights dont work after i got pulled over lol. But he said I was ok to go home if I turned my hazards on since they worked, phewww. Along with the tail light all the extra light on the light bar arent hooked up right and the only one that is hooked up right is the orange flashy light :mad:. And about the motor, it was realy mistreated and beat on, the truck used to have 38's on it and the speedometer was recalibreted for them cuz with the 33's it is about 5+ over. I realy like it acept the gas milage, lol. The hood has a skull on it instead on the ram, way cool. the bug visor thing gives it a cool look too. I will get some more pics of it tommarow of the front back etc..and I have to get the pics devoloped of when I burryed it in a swamp the first day owning it, lol ;D ;D ;D ;D

And the mud you see in the pics above is after driving home in at least a half hour of heavy rain ;D ::);D

I use a modified "Hunt and Peck" typing method coupled with a Zen based typing philosophy that transcends the use of any earthly keyboard. (I am either very spiritual or full of s#!^).

If I was a betting man, I would choose the latter. It seems like a really safe bet. I'll place $200. What are the odds? 1:1? ;D

PLEASE,PLEASE TAKE THOSE BLOCKS OFF THE FRONT!!!!!

Under hard braking in a turn they'll spit themselves out and you will have no control of the truck! Not only dangerous for you but everybody that's close to you! Looks like a homemade lift if I ever saw one. Do yourself a favor and save your pennies for a good lift. A skyjacker6"or the superlift5.5".

COOL RIG,love the skull, I have em' on my door locks.

Ok, il get those blocks out of there as soon as i can!! Sounds like somethin real bad could happen.

And something is realy messed up with the tail light, heres what hapens, when lights are on they dont turn on, if lights are on and blinker is on they both pulsate dim, bright, dim, bright... If light are off and blinker is on they both flash on and off. if brakes pushed they light up like they are suposed to, If hazzards are on they flash like they are suposed to. ??? ??? Tomarow I am going to a friends house to get it so the tail lights work when the head lights are on, Im not to worryed about the blinker thing, If I realy need to signal I can use hand signals lol :-\

Yeah, front blocks bad. Why does it have a GM 10-bolt front axle, or am I seeing things?

Sounds like somebody has messed up the wiring a bit on the lights. Get a tester and check your voltages on the different wires in different stages of use: turn on, parking lights on, hazzard on, brakes with parking on, brakes with parking off, etc.
