guh.. i hate having a.a.d.d.

Post by Benny on Mon Jan 23, 2012 12:02 pm

a.a.d.d. you ask..? automotive attention deficit disorder.. we all have it.. but i seem to be in a battle with mine of late..

i was up late laying in bed thinking about my '66 dodge truck.. what i want to do with it.. make it awesome on the cheap..

and today.. i'm doing some homework on taking my '02 silverado 2500HD 4by from bro-cal stance on 315/75/16's to like a subtle 2wd lowish, reasonable street stance on like 265/75/16...

i like where these trucks are at..




but then i go and find this shit..
http://i52.tinypic.com/2jadysl.jpg

fuhhhh... to my eyes.. that shit is almost perfect.. if the truck just sat.. i'd go more in that direction.. but i drive it.. everyday.. on the road.. and it's killing me to keep putting gas in it.. 8.1l.. i'd be saving alot of rotating weight to drop down tire size.. it will get the truck down out of the wind which will help..

also.. i almost die when i try to get the baby carrier out of the center of the back seat.. and the sweet nfab nerf step rails are shin gitters...

i think my plan is to procure 265/75/16.. then get put them on my black wheels.. then get lowering keys for the front.. so i'd be in for tires and like 70 for keys.. bring it down.. see where it's at.. then go from there..

tell me i'm stupid..

I member those shackels werent on... I dont think at least. Only hard part about lowering the truck is finding the right wheel/tire setup since you use it for work

David has of course. You don;t keep cars more than 1 year.




Benya! I think B is convinced of doing shit to the truck. Finally. So that is either getting lifted, lowered, or superchared. Those are the 3 options ive decided. Either way I go there will be tint along the way along with some more stickers.

but lifted is 3 times as much $$ as lower. And I always told my self I would rather supercharge it before I ever lift it. Im pretty swayed to lower.

hey man you are the one that wants to do all this stuff...just thinking that you'd benefit more from a sc than being low...esp in a truck. so it sounds like you already know what you want out of those options lol

generally speaking im not a fan of lowered trucks though.

I just feel lowering will do the most to satisfy me. Ibe essentially had the same truck for 5 years although this one is brand new. I just need a change and lowering it with new wheels will make a huuuuge difference and please me as well as be the least spensive. Boost would be cool but doesnt visually change the truck.

Ya man, I feel like doing some high school shit and tinting my tails or something gay to fucking say I did something to the truck. Its so bland. Currently cant tell the difference between mine and any other titan sitting in a parking lot.
