Hey all! New to Chevy's, but not to trucks.
I'm Clay, 19 from Idaho.
My first vehicle at around 15? was a 1984 Ford F250 6.9 Diesel. It had a Banks turbo. I put an OEM exhaust on, cleaned up the interior a bit, sold it. Have pics but not on this computer.
Second vehicle was a 1998 Ford Explorer 4.0 SOHC 4X4. Mods by me -3" lifted, 31" tires, Rancho shocks, Flowmaster catback exhaust, over $1700 in audio, CAI, and three custom tunes. It was definitely my baby. Pic 1 - http://bit.ly/REqocY Pic 2 - http://bit.ly/Ovaxzu
Sold the Explorer and paid off my Stepfather for the family 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins. It had the long box, quad cab and 6speed tranny, 5" lift, 35" Toyo MT (taken off before sold), custom paint (stepfather owns restoration business). I added audio, tint, Smarty S-03 programmer, tow mirrors. Pic 1 - http://bit.ly/X3H015
The Dodge proved itself to be much to large after my first year at college. Streets here are plenty more pedestrian friendly and small, so I sold the Cummins and bought my 2005 Silverado 1500 about three weeks ago. It's the 5.3 shortbox extended cab LT model. I absolutely love it! I've since installed an aftermarket bluetooth stereo and headlight covers. I have more mod plans in the future, starting with maybe a torsion twist and CAI.
