    we realize what bigger tires do and why they do it. seeing how hes driving a 5000lb 4WD, i was just curious why he was worried about gas mileage.

    You get that too? I think that is funny because my truck is sitting low and fast, 4x2 and I get the same thing when I go down to Biloxi, Gulfport or Ocean Springs. You think it's the trucks or the rockin systems we have in them or both? Very nice truck man. Black Widow is cool.

    My fiance' likes my truck and has worked with me in fixing it up over the last couple of years but oddly enough her favorite upgrade has been the LED floor lights in the front. They are blue and they make her shoes look cool when she gets in and out.

    I would think that if a truck is lowered it is easier for girls to jump in the back, especially if you are driving slow enough LOL. Of course they'll shout over to you to see if you're willing to accept them in so be ready for them to scratch your baby with their heels, fingernails, rings, or whatever other accessory they have on them LOL. Noticing now that you don't have a tonneau cover on the back so that is surely easy access for a group of ladies.

    Oh and sweet ride!

    Swat's ride is too high for girls to jump in quickly, unless he's got a hitchstep in the back. Tires are popping out which does make it easier but a girl will have to lift her leg pretty high to climb...LOL

    I have no idea what chicks/women like (if anything) about my truck. I modified it for me, not for anyone else...
