    Well, myself and two friends had a little project we did on my old farm truck. Sold it to a friend for $300. And i regret every dollar... Trucks so much fun. Well anyways back on topic. The truck is stock other then our custom exhaust! :rofl: Okay, we're not mechanics. We did this in a total of 4 hours. And in 4 hours we did, cut off old exhaust, cut hole in the box for the pipes to fit out. Custom made Y pipe. And two prebent pieces to angle the exhaust coming straight up into the box. Then we went into the quancet and rummaged around in the spare parts until we found a very old combine exhaust. It's a pipe made up of thin rolled metal, so you can still bend it and flex it. Well we found all of that. Then we started on the stacks. two 7 and 1/2 foot pieces of conduit pipe. with 90* angle additions on the bottom. And custom angled peices for the tips. Well, words are useless. Just watch the video of what the truck looks like.

    Also, i would have started the truck, but it doesn't start. My friends older brother came home one day, and tried to start the truck. And the trucks carburated. And i don't think he knows how to start a carburated engine. We suspect he just sat there and help the key in, and just let it turn over for a good time. Burning out the starter.

    Noper, it's gas. But it doesn't sound like it at all.


    Just wait till you hear it. Doesn't sound like gas or diesel it sounds so unique.

    Awesome. You can't beat cheap fun like that. A friend of mine used to build up cheap beaters just to beat the crap out of them and then shoot them. He called them the poo rides.
